Actually it's probably that they think it hurts their sales when they're not known as having the fastest card ... or that's what they tell themselves anyways
They "lost" the crown to latency-stutter-inducing (aka quality-slaughtering) beta's for a month or so. I don't think anyone thought much of it, let alone the hordes of buyers who keep choosing nVidia over AMD month after month, as evidenced by reviewer comments on sales and steam survey every month with just one nVidia model such as the 680 holding more than 1.5x the COMBINED users of the 7950+7970. No one cares about ego... they care about performing cards that WORK.
That said, I want a Titan, but my 670 is doing ok.... well, I lie, I want a Titan but I don't have the money to spare right now. There, I said it!
That wasn't so hard people, was it?
