Inb4 “people buy the best when they can, based on what they can afford (while leaving out the little fact about based on what has not been disclosed, so better they better do their own dd)
, so buy, buy, buy” …. Lol
Let the healing begin by Nvidia not only issuing a mea culpa regarding the 970 fiasco, but by meaning it.. fire all unscrupulous, and brand damaging sales people …
Unless one does alter his or her purchases, one cannot sincerely expect a change in the seller’s behavior, and especially not by providing a further inducement to the seller to continue the behavior that offended the buyer in the first place….lol since it would indicate that the buyer is just pretending to be offended, at least this is how I would read it, if I were the seller…lol
Moreover, as I suspected, DX 12 will shake things up as to how GPU companies are used to pricing their products, based on whatever elementary school ecosystem milking scheme they may have in mind:
“It also means NVIDIA is in a tight spot with GeForce Experience – as of now I know of no way that NVIDIA could circumvent the Microsoft App Store system and get GFE to offer the same kind of experiences that it does today with PC games……..
Chances are that AMD would eat this up – they have continued to push FreeSync as the open standard for VRR and the company could benefit from being the only VRR technology support on MS app store games."
So, whichever company embraces the reality of DX 12 first, will be in a position to benefit from the next sales cycle. Of course, there are those who would like to live in an alternate universe where some delusional ecosystem of their own will flourish, however, the reality is that Windows 10’s adoption rate will only increase exponentially, and with it, the roll out of DX12 friendly pc games. MS has more money than Nvidia to throw at the developers (and more than AMD for that matter), so as a pc gamer today buying a card, would I be looking back to see what card would play better on yesterday’s platform, or rather what card would be beneficial for the current and future platform… the answer for me is pretty obvious…lol
