Nvidia is doing it with it's pockets full. AMD's pockets are full of debts. I love how people don't give any excuses to a company that is fighting two fronts, at the same time, against stronger companies and with billions in debts and at the same time they will find plenty of excuses for companies that have the upper hand and billions of cash to spare. And as always the GT730 example is ignored because (usual excuse) it can't run modern titles at 4K @60fps with everything at ultra. I mean we have an example where a company sells three totally different cards under the same name, and NO ONE CARES. But AMD, that sells cards under different names and at price points where the cards are competitive if not better value options, it's guilty.Nvidia 8000, 9000, 200 - Tesla.
Nvidia 400, 500 - Fermi.
Nvidia 600, 700 - Kepler (with the 750Ti Maxwell starring as the red headed step-child)
Nvidia 900 - Maxwell
Nvidia 1000 - Pascal
Let's take a look at the red camp now
AMD HD7000 - GCN 1.0 & 1.1
AMD Rx200 - GCN 1.0, 1.1 & 1.2
AMD Rx300 - GCN 1.0, 1.1 & 1.2
So really, you can look at this any way you want. Imho, Nvidia at least looks like it's mimicking intel's tick-tock and AMD is worse, because unless you're buying the most expensive parts it pretty much guarantees you're getting an older design/process.
*I've only included retail desktop parts, because OEM and laptop parts are a mess in both camps.
Anyway I stop here before a certain moderator starts getting worried.
