Wow, that says a lot about your perspective.
Nv can price it how they want, I'll continue to vote with my wallet. Yes NV creates great performance parts, no they don't make and sell them at a great value as often anymore.
It's pretty much that simple, seems to be a lot of yammering about how each perspective is different. Remember it's all about what someone is willing to pay and how much it's valued to them. Really doesn't have to be 100% just about the market. Nv knows it's numbers, they know their demographic and it's obvious by this thread there are still many more that feel NV has great value products. I just don't happen to be one of them, but I don't mind one bit the one's that do see the value and need at NV's prices.
Once again with this launch NV has increased the price on each segment, the proof is in the numbers, the cold hard $$ amounts. And look how over priced they all are even above MSRP. And yes, AMD is no better in that regard. The two companies have kept the consumer so starved many will pay handsomely above MSRP just to get their hands on a current gpu.
