Well, AMD helped push monthly ATI driver updates, constantly fixing bugs reported;
don't see why it would be problematic with MMORPGs in particular...

Can't say I experienced any of those problems with my ATI card... that said, AMD's monthly driver updates put more emphasis on getting something out the door than actually making the update useful. Frequently beta drivers would be developed alongside the monthly drivers to fix game specific problems, but not introduced into the main ATI drivers until two or occasionally three releases later because the codebase had forked and required additional testing before being reintegrated.
Neither company is perfect, NVIDIA still occasionally has that shimmering sand/pixel effect in games... and they still have trouble with Company of Heroes... For a game that is "The way it's meant to be played" on NVIDIA hardware, I have never seen so many problems that took so long to be fixed, and some still aren't fixed at all. Very aggrevating as the original game has been on the market for three years.
