Prices for the R9 series are competitive with the GTX 700 series. They're not the same, but they're in the same ballpark, and you can choose to pay more for things or pay less for fewer things. There's reasonable choices to be made, with either company.
Show me a "prosumer"-level AMD card that this would compete with, which has many of the advantages of the dedicated workstation line at a fraction of the cost, and then we can talk.
People are going nuts thinking that this is the harbinger of the 800 series prices to come, and my earlier statement stands: 800 series prices will have a lot to do with what AMD is offering at the time, because that's where there is actual competition. And, yes, AMD is going to introduce more cards. They may have not announced them yet, but they are coming, and they will compete with Maxwell.
Also give me one reason, why dual card, which should be cheaper then 2 separate cards, is 1000$ more, i'm waiting.
Because the target market will pay it. What more reason do they need? You're clearly not the target market, and neither am I. Why should we care?
P.S. Please don't give me the useless MATX format as excuse.
P.P.S. I already smeel the excuses, "AMD price gauging" so Nvidia can price is 2x more
all to justify Nvidia prices
If you're going to be this condescending and insulting, I'm not sure why I even bothered replying. What benefit do you gain from acting like this?
