    As prices slowly will be slashed down the road, drivers will improve.
    Until Black Friday I can wait patiently.

    By then nvidia will release a rtx 2080 Ti Anniversary edition covered in black leather pieces from the famous jackets - take that Ms. Su with your signatures on products!

    By then maybe Nvidia will work/put more effort in open source drivers.
    For me, as a Linux user, AMD is a better overall experience.
    Not everyone is a gamer here...and the idea is to enjoy this hobby, not follow a agenda of who's being"owned/pwned" here.
    There is more to it that this.

    I don't get why people are moaning that these aren't 250 bucks but not moaning about the 2070 Super costing double that. The XT is 100 bucks cheaper than the Super while only being a few frames behind it going by the leaks.

    At the end of the day AMD are a company that's purpose is to make money, they aren't going to lowball if they don't need to.

    Very nice. AMD still has the better performance/price cards.

    You can quote as many people stating that as you would like, without going back and seeing the results of 2 different timelines, we will never know for sure. Hell AMD themselves could post it, I wouldn't believe it. If Nvidia had not launched the Super Series, you do not know without 100% certainty that AMD would have still dropped the price, or if you would have been paying the original price they gave at E3. They dropped the price to match the performance level these cards hold compared to the competition, that is fact from AMD own benches, and leaked ones on the new 5700/XT cards.

    Did you make a research on that and have some numbers to present? Else, it's just your opinion and quiet irrelevant in the big picture.

    Again, AMDs OpenGL implementation in Windows is bad, which accounts for 90%+ of userbase environment of these gaming cards. No one is talking about Quadro and Radeon Pro here. You might say not many games use OpenGL anymore, but that's precisely why I mentioned emulators - the majority of them use OpenGL, so AMD is bad there and Nvidia isn't.

    So what? It's not like nvidia is much worse in Linux and, again, Linux is a very small niche gaming environment. So, at best, AMD and Nvidia are equal in Linux, and AMD is worse in windows, while Nvidia also offers RTX. Objectively more, in other words.

    You do you. But you just dismissed 90% of the market for those cards, so... Yeah.

    Did you just come out of a cave?

    People are definitely complaining that nvidias prices are too high, they have since the original 20 series came out, possibly even before then depending on the person and release.

    The simple fact that people can say about 2070 super cost though is:

    545mm2
    ray tracing capabilities (physical, as it's not software)

    Vs navi's reasons for being expensive

    251 mm2
    7nm

    So that's what? The 2070 Super is around 4.75 times larger then the 5700/XT? Not to mention the additional fail rates due to the high numbers increasing costs?

    People are saying the navi GPUs should be cheaper, because despite the 7nm potential unobtainable cost increase, 251mm2 is a tiny, tiny GPU. It's rare that a GPU that small has been put into a cost bracket that it currently, even with the decreased price, cost, at least lately. RX 580 for instance is a tiny, tiny bit smaller of a GPU, yet is $230

    People are saying, that apparently you haven't seen which is amazing to me, that all the 20 series is overly priced. Like, no matter where you look people are saying it, so i really don't understand where your question about that even comes from lol

    @Ricardo : Sadly, anyone who bought 1050(Ti) was ripped off and was better off buying GPU on AMD's side for same price. High end is different story and since AMD did not have those top dog cards, there is no reason to compare there.

    As it should have been from the very start. The GPU Market wasn't as wrapped around your fingers as you stupidly assumed AMD. So tired of price-gouging cards. This isn't Navi 20 it's 10 stay in your price lane fool...
