I'd say it's pretty much hit and miss. Radeons were as far as I remember first to have issues.koolio wrote:Are Radeon cards generally better than the NVidia cards for the X=Wing series?
On the other hand the response from AMD to bug reports was "we'll look into it", whereas NVidia's was more like "we know, we don't care".
Of course the former response only has any real value if they really fix it, which they have not so far (drivers after early last year break AMD cards as well), and considering how they are struggling and get bad PR for not managing to get their own Mantle API to work properly I expect it's very low on their list.
Or in short, be happy to if it works, but you really have no reason to expect much in backwards-compatibility from either vendor.
(less useful advice because you can do little about it: if you want a game that's still playable 10 years later make sure it gets its source released or at least supports OpenGL)
