Cut-down is relevant because that's why certain people are upset, they aren't just upset because something is expensive, they're upset because of what that certain something is..

If "real" x80 chips were still $500- 600 top-tier consumer GPU's, and Nvidia made Zeus-tier chips for $1500, i doubt anyone would be complaining. Instead, thanks to AMD's blunders, Nvidia have just moved the prices up, massively.

If in some dreamworld Vega curb stomps Nvidias best, and AMD do it for at least 2 generations, then watch chips like the ones in the 1080 go back to where they belong, in the 1060. Prices are like they are because Nvidia can get away with it, simple as that. I agree with buy it or don't, we're stuck with the current landscape. I just don't get why people act like the ones who complain are somehow delusional..

Nvidia does a great job of diminishing the value of their cards at the right time and screwing over their buyers.

They do this by maximizing profit at the right time, getting people to purchase overpriced cards (1080) then they surprisingly release another card at insane prices and people jump on that (Titan XP), then a short while later they dump on XP owners by releasing a similarly performing card for a lot less (1080Ti). And if Vega is a competitor they might price the Ti very similarly to the 1080 which is a spit in the face to 1080 buyers.

How often does AMD do this shady garbage?

because they can insert them at their various performanc/price points
just like any other product out there, price it to what people pay

I personally am happy with the significant jump in performance they released last 2 gens
way better than cpu market which should be the real story, roughly 10% improvements

Is there a point at which prices in this industry are such a turnoff that it turns away enough gamers to cause Nvidia to go back to sane pricing (like $500 for full flagship)? Or is it only dependent on competition?

Technically we would still get that same performance jump even if prices were still in line with what they use to be. Prices don't just go up because performance improves. There are other variables at work.

obviously
do you understand price points? supply and demand? the new best thing?
many of these things have been stated

but this last gen of improvements from nvidia was huge jump more than typical

You seem to be the one that was hung up on pricing being like it is because of the performance jump. I have no issue understanding what's going on. thumb.gif
