It's strange that there's all this fuss about AMD keeping their product lineup stable in order to keep cash flowing in and giving away free stuff for gamers, but no-one mentions that Nvidia is doing the exact same thing with Maxwell.
Then again, that announcement was last year
and everyone seems to have forgotten about it. Both companies seem to be moving to a 18-month product life cycle because desktop performance at 1080p is at a plateau. Unless we all move to 30" screens tomorrow, or every second person buys a triple-monitor setup, there's not much incentive to make new stuff for people using the same monitor they did last year. You can add on the eye candy, but there's a point where it transitions from looking great to just being a waste of good resources.
