You either didn't even read my post or you really are just blindly following your chosen brand no matter what.
Did you even read my post? Your post doesn't even make sense. But of course it would make perfect sense to all the fanboys out there. I'll give you that.
I buy what I want when I want. If I wanted to buy a Fury or a 980ti I would and I don't care which brand they are.
Go back and re-read my post if you care to. Or don't... Doesn't really matter to me, but your post as a rebuttal to what I said was pointless and did not sum up nor counter my comments at all.
AMD is simply not operating well.
Now I'm not sure you have read your own post.
On the one hand, you can "fanboys" idiots, just because they like to buy from a certain manufacturer because they like those cards, and they don't care about the other manufacturer.
On the other, you tell them that they are idiots because they don't understand competition.
But this is completely irrelevant, because for there be competition, there also needs to be someone to compete with.
So you seems to not understand competition at all. Competition requires two sides, two competitors, two who can actually compete.
And for AMD to even compete, they need to make a lot of changes.
No one said "there should be no competition" like you blindly claim it was said.
People mostly say "AMD should die" not so there will be no competition to nvidia, but so that someone can buy them out and make something better out of them.
Your basic assumptions in general, seems to be so off the center, I doubt about your "I will buy what ever brand I want" attitude, is real in any way, and most likely it is just for the sake of argument.
P.S I'm not a fan boy. I like the nvidia cards because they perform better for the games I play, and take a hell of a lot less power even after OC (and they OC very well). And still, my wife's computer does have a couple of 290X which I bought second hand very cheap from people who upgraded to the 390X (and I found pretty funny, but it's their choice), because she plays more AMD favourite games at a lower resolution.
You have no idea who I am or why I buy what I buy, yet you are very critical about everyone's choice.
