Could be wrong but its definitely NOT going to be $500...
I love ya breh but shut yo MOWF
You guys realize this is a game between consumers and companies right??? I guarantee you part of Nvidia's market research is to scour the internet and guage public perception of the card and it's price. They are constantly getting information on how much they can charge us for.
Do you guys realize how much they
[Nvidia] leaks about the card months before the release? They do this to see how us nerds react. They lower specs, increase specs, all to judge our reactions. If we're creaming our pants they know they have us. Then they might throw around a few prices to see our reactions. And in the final damn week before release, if we show any god damn weakness or temptation they will up the price last minute if they know we will pay.
They had us by the balls for at least a year now with Titan's rumored performance and specs. They know people are dying for another card and they will shove a dagger in our chests if they can see us shaking in desire.
This is the problem with the internet, it's like negotiating for a car, except the dealer has us by the balls because they can read our minds and know exactly what we're thinking and how desperate we are.
Public demand and desperation for these cards is easy to spot, if gamers knew how to present themselves we'd be paying a lot less.
We all need to grow a pair and not show our hands.
