You are all falling for PR nonsense! And that's why nVIDIA and Intel keeps rapping your buts off on an on! They did it with GTX 680 and they are doing it now. I already have a GTX 780 and I am perfectly capable of buying a GTX 780 Ti - damn, I could buy a TITAN if I was stupid enough - but, that's not the issue here! The issue is not if I have the money, if I am an enthusiast or if I want a bigger e-peen. The issue here is what nVIDIA is charging me for that experience! The issue here is "what's the limit?" The issue here is nVIDIA dropping the GTX 780 price to $500 and priced the Ti $200 above! Well, what have you gentlemen to say to that? Isn't GTX 780 a "premium product" anymore at $500 but, was a "premium" when it was $650? Is the GTX 780 performing worse now? Wake up dudes! Make a stand! This rapping has to stop!
The 780 Ti happens to hold the fastest single GPU title at the moment, which is where the price premium comes from.
Don't imply that AMD wouldn't price their GPU's higher if they could. These company's exist to make money, not to make you happy. If you want better price to performance ratio, hey, you have other options. The flagship cards newer offer the best bang for buck, no matter which team's offerings you're looking at.
Also, what do you have against rappers?
