That's not accurate. Not exactly fair either.
Nvidia notoriously hikes up prices on launch...480 - 590 - 690...Might as well start calling them N$.
You'll never see Nvidia even arbitrate cost...Look at the current prices of the 690's that are left over...Really? You think they're going to lower costs? LULZ.
Every GPU makes an insane profit, 4-5x cost.
Who cares what customers want for a decent price? These cards are aimed at an enthusiast market. Look at the Titan, demand was so high it just RECENTLY started sitting in warehouses...
Supply and demand...Something is only worth what the next idiot is willing to pay and the idiots are flocking.
