AMD is once again reactive, rather then proactive.
This is just off the top of my head....
GTX 6xx series launches, with a boost feature. Shortly thereafter, AMD comes out with a boost feature.
AMD Launches 7970 for $550. NVIDIA launches 680 for $500, AMD reacts with a price cut, and eventually an OC'ed 7970 GE to regain the title.
AMD claims Titan isn't a threat.... AMD is eventually launching 7990 to gain back the "World's Fastest Graphics Card" title. (15 months after the 7970 launched. ) Besides, 7990 isn't an answer to Titan, it's an answer to the 690. A single GPU card faster than Titan, would be an answer to Titan. Make sense?
Fermi brought a lot of compute power to graphics cards (GPGPU), AMD launches GCN with more compute power.
In AMD's conference call, they take a cheap shot at NVIDIA saying "We admire Nvidia's efforts in mobile" yet, AMD is just working its way into mobile.
AMD constantly talked about the The Way It's Meant to be Played
program. They now have "Gaming Evolved"
NVIDIA announces Grid, now we get this announcement from AMD.
Do I need to go into the frame latency issues, which NVIDIA has been working on much longer than AMD?
Point is, AMD is once again
reactive, rather than proactive.
I'm sure you will list some reasons where AMD launched products first, like the 5870....
