I dont see Intel raping us with their prices, and they pretty much can do whatever the hell they want.
I dont see Intel raping us with their prices, and they pretty much can do whatever the hell they want. If Nvidia thinks they can start selling 970-class gpu for 500 bucks because AMD is not able to compete, they are going to put themselves out of business and push everybody over to consoles. I don't see that happening. At least not for a while. (By the time it happens i hope i'll be too old to give a shit about gaming and Nvidia and AMD )
We would have had this exact same conversation in 2008 had AMD priced the Radeon 4870 at the same price as the GTX260 ($450). Instead AMD priced the Radeon 4870 at $300, and yeah it had half as much RAM as the GTX260 and GTX280, but it was a NEW type of RAM that was much faster and helped it compete against the much more expensive GTX260 and at times keep up with the GTX280.
If AMD priced the Fury-X at $500, it would have been a repeat of the 4870...reviews would have been glowing. Instead AMD priced it way too high. It funny that AMD is willing to destroy their GPU market share for $150...
they are raping us with prices. it's a relatively gentle rape, but it's still rape. a sandy bridge i7 is barely slower than a 4790k clock for clock, yet a 4790k is $340. and this is kind of unrelated, but if you bought one of the new haswell-e cpus and all you're using it for is gaming, you've wasted over $200. at least with gpus things are somewhat competitive still, although that might not be the case anymore with fury x.
You know these forums are getting sadder and sadder, troll threads all over the place, personal attacks and all of it over hardware and the name of a company..... Grow up folks. It's just hardware if you think it's not as good then dont buy it, when you feel the need to bash someone else for their buying choice it makes me think you feel inferior with your choice. I have bought cards from Nvidia , ATI, Voodoo, Matrox and Promise so I am not brand loyal, but these kind of posts just make me want to avoid anything Nvidia, it makes me wonder if they are just paying people to come on here and bash.
The failure that was Fermi. How can people trust Nvidia.
I got a i7-5930k for $240, glad to know I should of got a $40 AMD processor instead.
I was just poking fun, the i7 5820k is only $300 at Microcenter, which is a great price compared to other i7 processors (and in general). The only AMD processor with similar multithreaded performance is the AMD FX-9590 at $220, but Intel has the edge in wattage, and depending on the benchmark and your use, the 5820k is a bit faster (15%) to much faster (50%+). I actually got the 5930k through the Intel retail edge program, but I was going to get the 5820k otherwise. But also the 2011 v3 platform (motherboard+ram) is much more expensive, so you kinda need to add $150+ in extra costs for picking that processor.

As for Fury I expect we will see a bit more when windows 10 launches, perhaps that Is what Fury needs to shine or perhaps the 980ti will continue it's slight lead.

So AMD promised massive leaps and performance gains over nVidia with the latest card. Clearly it failed.
Tom Logan himself said that AMD continued to tell him in press info that it would destroy the 980Ti...Linus received a dead card.....
AMD pushed Mantle and promised major advances....Mantle is dead.
AMD rebrands 2 year old GPUs and tries to sell them as new to customers....clearly they are being deceptive.
I just don't understand how people can continue to support AMD?
Yeah that is what has stood out for me more than anything, the sheer stupidity of so many posts. Yes, the Fury X is a disappointment for the price, but it is still VERY close to a 980 Ti. Yet, there are morons all over these threads saying "lol epic fail", "this isn't even a $400 card", blah blah blah. Responses to new CPU/GPU launches have always been rather lively, but the level of stupidity has really gone through the roof in recent years.
Honestly, it looks like Fiji was a GPU built for 14nm that had to get shoehorned into 28nm because thats all they had to work with. I suspect it will truly shine when 14nm becomes the norm, which is convenient for AMD.
The problem isn't the product itself but rather the price.if Nvidia had released this card the opinions of the vast majority of people posting in this crap pile of a thread would be totally different.
This thread deserves the attention it is getting, it's why I made it. My points are valid. AMD continues to let its loyal customers down and under deliver. I wanted to see what the rest of H thinks about it.
Case in point: nVidia has been leading on the hardware AND software front, with their GameReady driver releases and SLI support. AMD went what...6+ months with no updated drivers since he Omega driver??
Why people keep giving AMD money for sub-par products is beyond me and nobody in this thread has given me a compelling reason to think otherwise.
AMD released a slower card at the same price as an "overpriced" Nvidia card. How do you get to say nvidia is over priced when AMD is the same price lol?
Titian X, that is how I can say Nvidia is overpriced. Honestly who would not agree with that?
