what the hell is wrong with you?
i dont see how nvidia is doing us injustice. they released a titan over a year ago that still outperforms the r9 290x, how have they exactly done them injustice? if anything amd has done injustice releasing that card. 780 users have a card that again outperforms the r9 290x if clocked to its limits like the 290x is out of the box. sure they don't have this new card that's being talked about or the 780 ti but they haven't been done injustice, they still have a better card then the opposite side has to offer. how is releasing marginal improvements a negative thing? who feels the need to constantly upgrade besides enthusiasts? people that bought the 780 over the summer for $650 should be proud that it still gives the recently released amd card a run for its money (especially in its $550 reference state).
I mean you seem mad in the sense that you feel buying a flagship card entitles you to being at the top of that respective company for a designated amount of time? Idk i bought my 780 at the $650 price and couldn't be happier with it. Sure I only held the title of being a "nvidia flagship" owner for a few months, but I'm still performing better than amd r9 290x's so I'm not complaining. I am happy for nvidia fans that nvidia is releasing more flagships like the 780 ti and titan ultra, if anythng I wish amd would release more flagships, then I would have an alternative company to consider.
Besides these marginal upgrades have lowered the 780 classy to $550, which is much much more enticing than a reference r9 290x. nvidia is releasing these marginal upgrades because they are targeting enthusiasts and they don't really have anyone to compete against but themselves.Edited by vlps5122 - 11/28/13 at 2:01am
