Re: Rough Times All Around For The GPU Crew
nVidia has competition now, they haven't had it in years. They have been releasing refurbished cards after the launch of the 8800GTX, and some of them really overpriced. Now ATI has stroke them really hard. They have been forced to lower the price of the 200 series (and now they have a proper, realistic price, because when they were released the GTX 280 price was almost double than 15% less performer 4870).
Who are winners, nVidia or ATI?. Who cares?. I think we users are all winners.
