Why do they stop making the higher end AMD/ATI cards but keep making the ones below it?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This always happens to me I buy a higher end card in this case a 6950 with plans to pick another one up to do crossfire in the future. Then when I start to look for they no longer make them and all the used ones seem a bit on the high side. Yet they still make the 6 series below the 6950.....

Because they want you to buy the higher end models, so they get more profit because you have to pay more for the similar performance
