This is why I hate the AMD PR team.

Instead of concentrating on their products, their performance, their value, the concentrate on making it a "good vs evil" war.
Make more use of your precious opengpu, showcase GPU performance, enhance the value of your price/performance point, and push more products out, more collaborations.

No, lets all push the "lets hate nvidia!" train, or lets "rebel against the common" like the common is such a bad thing.

Even if they hate nvidia, at least they can learn a thing or two from them. Nvidia have great spokesmen, and they are letting their performance speak for itself.

Aside from general Nv vs Amd war, what's the point of this thread ?

I don't know. I'm not the OP.
I was just stating my opinion stating on what both sides are show casing.
Why? Do you hate other peoples' opinion?

To be fair, it's not just their PR team. It's AMD's general business model. It has to be, because NV has a yearly revenue that is roughly 5x larger than AMD as a whole. Intel has a yearly revenue that is roughly 55x larger than AMD as a whole.

If not for AMD, Intel and NV would both have a monopoly over their respective market. When you look at the way NV leans toward proprietary technology, it's hard not to interpret that as a strike against consumer choice. It's also hard not to interpret it as kicking a dog while it's down.

Now, I'm not saying that anyone should idealize AMD as an objectively moral company. That said, people do naturally work by polarizing their views in that way, and they can often switch to the polar opposite quite quickly without ever recognizing the folly of taking a polarized view in the first place. That's a failure of people, in general -- not AMD.

I don't really care how people get there, but people do need to start sending money AMD's way to preserve competition. AMD can't be expected to compete against Intel with 1/55th of the budget of Intel. They can't be expected to compete against NV with 1/5th of their budget. It's amazing that they're competing at all.

Even when AMD does have superior products, they tend to get blasted. Their most successful CPU products were dusted by Intel's anti-competitive practices. If you don't know about that, there are plenty of articles about it on the internet. Intel still hasn't paid their 1.2 billion settlement, which for AMD would be the equivalent of you having your wage doubled for an entire year. Their most successful GPU products were dusted by consumer dogma.

It's no wonder how they ended up being completely incapable of competition, at certain times.

Consumers do need to recognize that in the long run, the last competitor standing should be viewed as a "good-guy" .. Why? Because if those consumers are too ignorant to understand the need for competition, they should at least fall on an ignorant conclusion that serves their own needs.

And consumers do need a competitor to NV.

Splendid post. "Hoping AMD puts out a great product so I can get my Titan XP for less money" is not supporting AMD. Putting together a web-browser for a friend? Buy that x4 845 instead of the Pentium. Why not? We enthusiasts may know that "a Z97 board can take an i3 or an i5 if you choose to upgrade" but does your friend? Would they care if they did know? The RX 480 is roughly at parity with the 1060 and offers 2GB more memory but as soon as we saw that 5-10% performance delta in some games we were all very quick to write off the 480. 

 

AMD has made good products, is making good products, and will continue to make good products. They're not always the best nor even the best for what you're trying to do, but there are all too many people willing to talk themselves out of the AMD choice even when it makes sense for them.
