Nvidia has always been a money-hungry whore whenever they release their latest cards with top of the line performance in the market, and there isn't anything we as consumers can do about it...until this time ATI truly pulls off a strong comeback on an incredibly good-looking performance/price ratio so bad that nvidia can't do s*** but to make those god**** price cuts! (In your face, nvidia! lol)

thats my guess anyway.
Unlikely, the big boys have a ton of products to float on. I'd be more worried about the little guys that are new to the redistributor game.

I knew they'd knock ~175 for their cards...

I pity the fool that picked these up at launch, because it's not the vendors that are hurting from these maneuvers, but all the nvidia loyals who didn't see this coming.

Lucky for them, nvidias fanboys do not seem to let money come between them and their loyalty. The previous sales of the GTX280 is proof enough of that. As far as I am concerned, they already threw that much away by simply choosing to buy it over ATI in the first place.



edit: Also, I don't see how they couldn't see it coming. There are always price drops after release. these just happened to be a bit sooner than normal.

All companies are "money-hungry whore(s)".

Look at Intel's Extreme Edition.
Look at AMD's FX series.
If ATI was leading the market, they would be "money-hungry whore(s)" as well.

That's the whole point of a business, make money.
Once again...

The highest I ever saw AMD's FX series was around $900 for the FX-55 which was the best CPU out then, not Intel's stupid $1600 for a 2% performance increase.
AMD doesn't take it to the extremes that others do... atleast from what I've seen.

I have my own feelings regarding Intel, AMD, nvidia and ATI, and their business practices, but you are fooling yourself to think that any of them are more greedy than any other. Yes, some may have better price points and "seem" to take care of their customers more or less, but that doesn't mean thay aren't there for the same reason, $$$$.

The reason Intel charged that much is they sold. the reason AMD didn't was, the didn't (or wouldn't have) That in addition to the larger companies having to make more money back per unit do to advertising etc. There are many, many things that go into an MSRP.

The simple things about price is that the company that is leading in performance (has been Intel and Nvidia for awhile now since C2D and G80, that is a fact, cannot be argued) can pretty much charge you whatever they want and if you want top performance you are going to have to pay it. If AMD/ATI (or I guess they are the same thing now) were on top, you would probably see exactly the same thing, I didn't see the 1900XTX dip too far below the 7900 series when ATI was on the top of the heap, and I didn't see any really cheap FX offerings from AMD back in the day.
