So much this.
It feels like some kind of monopoly or fixing.
The decision is WHEN you buy the GPU.. (unless you really prefer 1 company).
If NV's gonna be 6 months late again, it doesn't feel like a win anymore.
Who knows, if NV releases the 7XX then maybe AMD might suddenly counter with a 7XXX refresh.. so it'll feel like a more "direct competition".
Getting pretty boring at this rate IMO.
