I knew this day would come, the prices are now accepted.

One company is greedy, and the other has a right to make a profit.

Yea it's a shame. I really hate people who say "these prices are OK, because they are as powerful as NVIDIA's cards", or just generally say it's ok because they are powerful on their own, 4K, bla bla bla...
NVIDIA pushed up the prices hard when they had monopoly, now a medium range card costs as much as a high-end did only a few generations ago.
Same on the CPU front, now an i5 costs as much as a full-fledged i7 did 4-5 years ago and AMD upped their prices, matching Intel's. Sure we had 15-20% performance improvement compared to previous generation, but coming with a 20% increased price. There is no progress in price/perfomance there.

How does it get a highly recommended if it's almost the same as the ref card by all metrics but costs 120$ more?
Because it's a really good graphics card?
That and the fact that a buyer is getting a much better cooled card because of the cooler design, which will allow for a much higher OC. The Overclocking community will have fun with this card.

wow, its quite clear now, amd rx 6000 series,none of 6800 models cant beat rtx 3080/90 for gaming performance,and i mean 4K gaming,not even amd's AIB higly oc'd models.
and remembe thouse rtx 3080/90 what compare amd AIB models are FE models.
rtx 3080/90 AIB models get few percent more fps also.

example 2 rtx 3000 gpus, evga 3080 ultra and msi 3090 suprim are away thouse amd rx 6800 gpus,we took over max 20% different (msi rtx 3090 suprim)

hmm,different is so small,nothing rx 6800 and rx 6800xt when verify AIB models...well same as rtx 3080/90,
so i can say rx 6900xt not change it much,might rtx 3080 10gb loose,but rtx 3090 stay top.
let see what then incoming rtx 3080 ti doing...

also Q1-2/2021 coming ampere super models with 7nm tech,yes, with tsmc 7nm.

well, anyway,lets start wait next gpus generation.. ,again, is it rdna3 from amd and Hopper from nvidia....they are for sure 'terrible' gpus.
..Q2-3/2022 i think..
