Just by having an opposite opinion doesn't mean that i "attack" anyone.
If you can't handle my opinion not my problem.
And if i remember correctly that guy quote me saying that only the AMD fanboys believe that the 580 is a good choice implying that i am one
. So saying that you overthinking and you analyze the success of the 580 based on assumptions is an attack i dunno..
Have a good night man maybe tomorrow will be a better day for you
By the way, I didn't directly call you a fanboy. I was simply stating it should be disappointing for anyone that the rx580 is launching with the same initial MSRP as the rx480. When you combine it is a rebrand and it is cheaper for AMD to make, it should be cheaper, like every other rebrand.
Everytime a rebrand has come out, it has been cheaper than it's predecessor and typically better performing too on top of this. With the reduction in production cost, AMD should be passing some of the savings since this isn't a new GPU design from them. This not only earns them more marketshare but maintains their goodwill to the community.
Coming out at the same price is weird and set's a bad precedence for the industry. I don't want the videocard industry to stagnate like the CPU one where releases are just 8 or 9 percent faster than the earlier one and at the same cost.
This coming out at the same price should be disappointing from anyone. It is completely unlike AMD. If you don't see this, there can only be one conclusion.
Short term profit from high initial pricing leaves them wide open to a counter too. If Nvidia does another gtx 970(sans the memory issue) which it can considering how cut down the gtx 1070 is, it will steal all the sales away from AMD. Nvidia has been nearly flawless capitalizing on AMD's mistakes and magnifying them. Having a 250 dollar price tag(akin to the r9 285) leaves AMD wide open from a counter from Nvidia in reviews. AMD needs to realize the initial opinion and impressions for a review set the tone alot on how well received they are in sales. The elephant in the room that these cards are being priced the same as the initial rx480 reviews and the fact that rx480's are still in the market and better priced is going to hurt rx 580 review impressions.
I am basing my opinions on historical trends which has made my predictions pretty accurate as of late.
