However I was talking about (just like the context of this thread) the segment of the 650ti, where (and generally all around low end cards) AMD is clearly cheaper. You jumping at me with comparing the entire market, but I don't understand why.
ps.: and about the comparison: what resolution and with what settings may I ask, 8xAA and ultra high res is not for Kepler for example, so usage and situation matters.
Anything lower than 7850-660 (~$200) is not really bang for buck at the moment, and doesn't even have a complete lineup, for example you get 7750 just under $100 and then 7770 at $120, and then nothing until 7850 at $175. Nothing at $150 point, the sweet spot has moved upwards to about $200 so things appear to be more expensive. Same story for Nvidia, in fact they only have 650 (overpriced), and then nothing else in the $100-200 category other than last gen 560 to fill in the gaps.
