Thank goodness this is about to become a three horse race.
Yea really. AMD seems to be content to focus most of its efforts on its strengths and right now thats CPUs. With how little AMD has brought to the table for GPUs, Intel entering the market could be a real blessing if they get it right.
I don't think gamers are embracing RTX much. I know a lot of PC gamers and not one has a 2000 series card or has even mentioned a desire to get one with the current prices. If anything, there is still a pretty resounding loathing towards Nvidia now just because of RTX. Offering too little for too high a price made it clear to gamers that Nvidia is more interested in short term invertor pleasing gains rather than long term customer satisfaction. When you have no competition you don't need to worry much about customer satisfaction but long time satisfied customers tend to be pretty loyal. Right now Nvidia has primed the market for a huge market shift to anyone that can offer anything better than what Nvidia offers because there is no customer loyalty or satisfaction to help support them anymore.
Nvidia would be wise to do something to regain some good will from gamers before they're not the only option or they may find themselves facing lot more losses than simply the number would suggest because PC gamers can definitely hold a grudge against a big company for being so greedy.
