But you're gaming on 2 GPUs that probably cost the same as SLI'ed GTX 460's or a single GTX 580 do today. When you bought those, you got a top-of-the-line PC just like people who get dual GTX 460's do today. And dual 8800 GT's sure weren't needed back in 2008, just like GTX 460's aren't needed today. People who are entering PC gaming now or haven't upgraded for years appreciate the new cards that come out now. IMO this is the right thing to do. Give the gamers the best you can right now instead of doing big revisions every 2nd year. If you don't need the extra power from a new generation then skip it. Some people are buying HD 6xxx's and GTX 5xx's now and will skip the next generation while I'll be picking up a next-gen card and then skipping HD 8xxx and GTX 7xx.

The only stupid thing is when people "upgrade" from a 5970 to dual HD 6950's, which is pretty rare even on OCN.

Also with the new 3D and multi-monitor technology we have today, we need more powerful cards. I can rarely max out games with AA on my high-end card and anyone wishing to play in 3D or on 3 multiple screens will need 2-3 times the power to pull games at the same settings as I am.

Card sales will pick right up when games come out that need more horsepower than midrange cards from previous generations.

Hardware is well ahead of software right now.

That's because you have SLI, a friend of mine on WLM who was adamant his 8800GT would last until 2013 realized it won't at max settings when he had to turn off AA in Amnesia.

Also, 8xAA or go home, 2x AA barely does anything to my eyes.

That's true.

Some people are still happy with their 8800gt's and 9800gt's


There is no real need to upgrade when a system from 3-4 years ago can still play todays games pretty good.

One of the big reasons I could see for lower GPU sales is that screen resolution is not going up really. Since 1920x1080 has become a standard, there is less of a need to increase GPU power, because even today's mid-range cards can max out graphics at that resolution. The only thing now is just increasing frame-rates, which many don't really care about after it gets over 50-60FPS.
