AMD doesn't take it to the extremes that others do... atleast from what I've seen.
Wrong AMD is why CPU prices are so high now, Intel use to have the lower priced CPU and the FX62 was $1100 when it came out I know because I bought one. Funny thing is I got my QX6700 for the same price when it came out and it smoked the FX62
I've never owned a ATI card but wern't ATI and Nvidia's prices competitively close before the 8800GTX. Even though I prefer nvidia I'm glad ATI is doing well because it would suck to lose them just wish AMD would make a come back now.
