So as result show of those who polled anyway that it's even in ratio.
10 more people purchased Nvidia because of their higher end chips.
10 more people purchased AMD for their mid-lower end chips.
It sort of makes sense in my opinion.
Those purchasing Nvidia are paying more for performance regardless of price. They don't mind paying more for it to be on top.
Those purchasing AMD make their decision based on getting more bang for their buck not wanting to pay premium for it getting more per performance ratio even if it means not being on top.
It's been the long drawn out argument between both camps for the longest time. Many heated arguments and heavy opinions in fact.
I myself am guilty of it from both sides as I compared / compare both products blindly in benchmarks. I've been on both sides of the fence, AMD being the longer of the two.
When I did purchase AMD I made the argument it wasn't worth paying more price per performance ratio. When I jumped camp for the GTX 580 it was to be on top to have the best single card on the market (at the time) regardless of paying a premium for it.
Let's keep in mind this wasn't a scientific poll it was insightful. Let's not argue on it but take it on face value. I'm sure both sides now will chime in and this might turn into another heated debate. It's my opinion and though I'm entitled to it, I'm sure someone will now slam me for it. LOL.
Remember this is good because both companies are fighting for our dollar that both companies stay in business. We as consumers are benefiting from it as they fight for our dollar. As soon as one of the two fold we will see the company that remains name their price and performance will diminish without another company to fuel it.
I'll end this post by saying what I like to remind everyone having purchased from both sides myself.
It's like trying to pick a red apple or a green apple from a barrel when both taste just as good. :grin:
