i am buying soon 770 4gb unless i win a 780 sc in hexus.net competition after 21 june
but nvidia stock sounds more like apple (60% of income comes from iphone) compared to amd being microsoft (ms having array of income streams, windows, office, xbox, and some other).
amd has a lot of income streams gpus, apu, consoles, mobiles etc., while nvidia is focused too much into gpus where most of their income comes from and their solutions are too expensive.
especially now that we have cards that can get you 60+fps @1080 why would you even want to upgrade your gpu in lets say 3 years down the road? i mean because it has 80fps instead of 70fp on your average 1080@60hz? such upgrade will not make sense for a most people
and in 3 years the card that gets you 60fps@1080 will cost 200bucks instead of 400-650bucks today or latest in a year when next gen comes out. so there you see. the top of the line gpus like 980 or 11970 (just kidding) will have use only for 120hz or 3x1080/3x1440p monitors, but for 99% of gamers @1080p and even @1440p (next gen should provide over 60fps, i mean 770 can give you today 50-60fps in most games aside crysis 3 and metro) a single 200 buck card will suffice.
so what will nvidia do then? they are great and i am an ati guy of 15 years who switched to nvidia now, but they are simply too expensive. also stock market is shortsighted, they mostly trade based on now info and not on what company might become. so they can give money to stockholders but for how long? and if they do it, shareholders will continue to expect it and if they stop giving out money, their stock will plummet
