You're not calling out the bull, you're ranting against people based on the wrong facts. The Ti is not a hot card and no tables have turned. On the contrary, we find ourselves in the exact situation we were when the 780Ti launched. AMD's top offering is slower. The difference now is that AMD is late to the party and that the Fury X doesn't overclock much, pretty much defeating the whole point of that liquid cooler. Regarding the buyout, yeah that's something we can agree on. Although I do suppose that before the transitional period and the resulting monopoly we COULD stock up on SLI high-end cards and wait for it to blow over. It wouldn't be that bad actually. Especially since the companies with the monopoly won't have an incentive to release better products. Unless they'd be afraid to get smashed to pieces by the competition's offerings. A few years is a hell of a lot time to design a product, even a GPU.
