Release date reasoning

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
For the 7000 series it is releasing from high end cards (7970) and is the releasing the rest of the cards on later dates. When they do this is it for purly market and economic reasons or do they add, slightly newer tech and extra development to the later cards (7850)?

I would say for the 7 series launch it was to maximize profits and potential sales

People are left with only the option to buy the more expensive cards and generally say "why not, it's not that much money" and buy it because they don't want to wait for a cheaper solution and they are impulsive. Then when the cheaper cards are released they become 100x more appealing to the people left who did not purchase something and massive sales ring in.

I think it might be for both reasons. If they released the whole range of cards at the same time, the previous gen would get no time to sell current inventory. Also it usually seems like they build the highest end GPU first, and then use it to scale down. So they might make little tweaks after the flagship is released, but truth is the design is probably already finished and just waiting for the right time to release. Vanilla Coke is awesome btw

Interesting theory and it explains radeon, but kepler is releasing the opposite way

I get that feeling too. Although Nvidia is releasing kepler the opposite way, I suppose this is just so the high end cards are released farther away. I love vanilla coke, I swear it is made out of bald eagle tears
