Nice analogy. Then I got to thinking. I sure hope it doesnt turn out to be a Vin Diesel movie I like this card more then the others. My issue has never been its gaming performance but rather the direction its taken and the price point to its offering. Every cycle both architectures AMD & Nvidia are suppose to be improved upon, thats a given. The innovation is there since both companies are similar with their end results but sticking to the engine analogies. Dont know if you'll remember this one the Variable Displacement. Lets deal with square you have 8 square in-side a box. You take two squares out. Those 2 empty squares are not using power nor space. Your saving power and heat from those 2 you took out. Since you took those out you can take the clutter that was attached to those two from the remaing 6, which gives you more space and less power to use and less heat. Now you have 2 and a half square of the equivelant not taking up space, power nor heat. Lets turn up the Revs going back to the engine lingo. The extra space can be used as a buffer for heat allowing you to Rev it up while still lowering power usage. The competition arrived at the same conclusion using 8 squares. But what do we know about lower displacement ? They always need a SuperCharger or a Turbo to conpensate for low end torque throughout the powerband. Just looks bad for what they are offering while pivoting the arch without even bothering adjusting price. Even if AMD is priced high 2 wrongs dont make a right. Lower your prices!!! Like selling you a BLT hamburger without the BLT at the price of a BLT. Dam plain hamburger. Maybe i'm the minority that doesnt like to get screwed even if its cake or cookies.
