I find it extremely lolw-orthy AMDs revolution marketing.
AMD fanboys excuse is a more efficient architecture than 390, and even thst is absolutely hilarious considering they were bashing GTX 980 because then it didnt matter.
But now since its AMD it is suddenly important lol
How many nVidia fans cared about efficiency when 5870 was beating the pants off of every single Fermi card nVidia had? Then Kepler released and OMG perf/watt was liek the mostest importantest thing evar! Theme continued with Maxwell and AMD was made fun of for releasing space heater after space heater. And now when AMD finally takes steps to address efficiency their efforts are belittled.
TBH whoever has the most marketshare and/or fastest card tends to troll the hardest. I know we trolled the hell out of Intel fanboys back when the Athlon 64 was spanking all the Pentium 4's. It was bad...
A 3800+ along with a 7900 GT was a mean combo back then.
