May I point out how the 1000$ Titan brand was introduced 5 years ago ? And how the 8800 Ultra who was also nearly 1000$ ,5 years prior ? Surely within that time span AMD was at least a couple of times competitive, so what gives ? Competition does not drive prices down by it self, this has been proven time and time again, just look at the history of every industry out there. Take smartphones, the competition there is insane yet what do you know, we also got 1000$ phones.I am not even stressing about this anymore, it is what it is...AMD nowhere near the performance so no competition so these numbers are not that shocking anymore.
This 1k$ figure shows up a lot it seems, why do you think that is ? It's because of the competition ? Nah, it's because of your wallet. Matter of the fact is AMD could come out with a card 10x faster , if they price it the same as Nvdia, it will sell. Because currently, that's the buying power of those types of customers.
Companies do not compete for who has the best product or who sells most products or who can sell them for cheapest, they ultimately compete for who can have the biggest profits.
That's not the point of what I said. ~500 GFLOPS of DP is still a lot extra compute performance should you need it, it's not as useless as you may think it is. Of course there are cards out here with more DP performance.
