Shills..lol relax mate
Agree though the prices are nonsense so called "mid end" was already expensive, let's be honest, very expensive at 500 ish, now if it's becoming the trend to have "mid end" at 750+ then what can we expect in a few years, 1k mid end ? then 1.5k ? then 1.8k for full chip and 2199$ for a Titan, yea right, I may sound ragey but if this goes exponentially that's where we're heading, but anyway I don't really see how even 500 it could be called "mid end" lol let's forget little names I think..
It appears to me, that the *70* cards segment like the 970 and now 1070 segment offers the most value, essentially turning the x70's to "mid end" and x80's high end, the Ti's being super high-end/enthusiast, and Titans are out of league, and it never was an interesting product anyway, at least for me, so I will not even bother.
Of course this is all just words so who cares in the end, overpriced is overpriced ! we sort of needed Vega now or soon..
It will be interesting to see what value AMD really provides with their 480 though
And as for eye candy..yeah nobody says you HAVE TO you NEED TO run max details of course, people who like me are a bit maniac and like to get the most eye candy they can, of course I don't care if it means reducing shadows or barely noticeable settings, but overall I mean, I'm pretty happy when I can max stuff
