NVIDIA has support for new features which AMD doesn't have like? They both support the same APIs.
You can't pick an ancient card and complain it doesn't have support for recent APIs and drivers, of course it doesn't.
I've been told NVIDIA spawns extra branched shaders as optimizations, which we don't really need here, but it really increases RAM usage when compared to AMD drivers.
They already lowered RAM usage, although it's still high. I'm not sure if they can or are willing to push improvements to lower RAM usage even more.
Basically, if you're low on RAM, AMD drivers are the way to go, either that or you'll have to get more RAM.
