Both companies suck at this point.
If you guys are really fed up about purposely slow hardware development and locked voltages, vote with your wallets and don't buy from any company that wants to gouge us. If enthusiasts boycotted a slightly improved locked voltage GTX 780 then Nvidia would have to respond by releasing a faster product and ending their Green Light Program.
Vote with your wallets, don't be sheep.
I wish more people thought like this, but no, fanboys run wild buying a new Ivy when they already had a Sandy, or a Sandy when they already had a perfect 4-4.2ghz Nehalem.. which still runs anything I've thrown at it at 60hz (at 3.5ghz, actually). The only thing I would gain (literally) by upgrading my 460s is being able to turn textures on BF3 from 'high' to 'ultra'.
I'm not spending more for that.
Just like how PD is crap despite practically every game on the market running just as well as any other CPU (And I mean it being fluid gameplay, not ******* over fraps counters) when you're running a 60Hz monitor and one card.
