I later found out on this morning's news it's women's day.
I'm sure millions are just delightful at this "iconic" gesture. Really, there's a whole bunch more useful things these businesses could have spent their time/money on. Like maybe some baby change table facility or something with actual practical use.
DirectX and driver improvements will only go so far. Game patches the same. At the end of the day it's x86 code being run, sure the AMD and Intel offerings can have special capabilities or compilation requirements that can produce some optimisations.
The thing is, every chance the Dx and driver stuff will flow through. As for games, don't be so sure. There's been a fair history of games that favour one GPU type over the other, to say nothing of games that plain never worked properly on ATI/AMD hardware and next to nothing was done about it.
It's a fixed hardware feature that's either turned on or off, I doubt there's any firmware upgrades that can help.
The disparity in performance, possibly SIMD type instructions go well but normal int/FP stuff suffers. Stuff like video conversion does lots of similar repeating calculations where games tend to have a bit less repetition.
