Heck, why not routinely donate half our pay checks to them so they can keep striving??? It's this type of nonsense that confuses me. You act like we owe these companies or something. We don't. They owe us. There are two different companies making high end video cards. That's it. TWO. It's already a duopoly and prices are high enough.

Don't rationalize these nutty prices because you feel like owe your entire gaming existence to them. They have us by the balls already, don't give them any more reasons to squeeze harder.

I'm not blasting nvidia or singling them out. All companies do this. And it just sucks.

$50 is a terrible guess for the BOM for a Titan card. It's certainly much higher than that. Plus you have to pay for the R&D.

If they can sell all they make at the price they are charging (and they are) then the card is priced correctly. At this point it is more likely underpriced than overpriced.

This is why we give you economics lectures.

If it cost a penny to make and they're making a killing @ $400 then yes I'm getting ripped off. If they're selling it for $400 while only making a $10 profit then I'm not.

Get the context.

Are you a retailer or distributor in the PC or electronics industry? Because I am. And I see the cost lists on occasion from various companies. The markup is ridiculous. That $200 hdmi cable costs me about $0.25 a pop. BluRay players are ridiculous too. I know that a Titan is more advanced engineering. But I would say the unit cost falls between $50 & $100. I really think that's a fair guess.

Off topic, but what moron would pay $200 for a HDMI cable? That's a terrible example to base your estimate off.

An audiophile or videophile. And MANY ppl would ask that same question about us on our video cards. There are different hobbies & interests. So I believe it's still a relevant example within the electronics industry.

Some of you guys are insane. Prices don't exponentially increase just because it's exponentially better than it's predecessor.

If that was true, we'd be paying a trillion dollars for a 1TB hard drive.

I agree...I mean, what's after that, a $1300 Maxwell because it performs the same and is much more efficient? What about a $2000 Maxwell 2.0 since it's a lot faster??

As long as ppl pay it... Yes. Don't be deluded. Americans have jobs & good paychecks. Companies know this. And they want to milk this country for every last cent. Oil companies randomly spike prices at the pump. Electronics companies raise prices to the max that they believe they can get away with. If you think otherwise you're naive.

Just wish Nvidia would release a card that's ~25% faster than a 680 for ~$500.
