[WCCFTech] AMD Mantle API does not require GCN – Will work with Nvidia Graphic Cards - Page 15

post #141 of 142
"You can't price gouge a non-essential good. Just because it is more expensive then what you want to pay, doesn't mean it is price-gouging. People are buying Nvidia products meaning it isn't too high of a price."

Sure you can, If Hollywood has $400 and some change to spend on a videocard at any given time then he is going to look for the $400 card regardless (I think its called a budget or something) if AMD has a $400 card that performs better than the Nvidia $400 card then I guess its logical for him to go with the AMD. Really not that hard to figure out mate...

That logic would work if outright performance was the only factor but in the real world, it doesn't work that way. Brand loyalty, warranties, drivers (a whole new can of worms), what games you play, sales, overclocking headroom, availability, product looks, and an infinite more factors will influence a consumers decision to purchase an Nvidia product or an AMD product.

If Nvidia was truly charging to much for a product, no one would buy it aside from people with either a ton of money or an unbelievable brand bias.
