I could go on and on but you'll keep thinking this is an argument that you have to "win" while I'll keep on enjoying my hardware regardless of who makes it

Happy trails.
I'm not treating it like a competition at all,just drawing on the different strategies by both companies that make your comparison on a GPU versus GPU,not only a competition,but you also assume the idea for both was to make the best possible GPU they could.

That is the case for Nvidia,which has a much larger transistor budget and is more expensive to make without a doubt,compared to what ATI did with Cypress,which is also the best they could do,but with lower limits on transistor budget,die size,and power consumption.

It's really that simple.
