AMD offering a deal on their cards if you return your 970!

Recommended Posts

Yeah ONE SINGLE MISTAKE.

WHat about fermi?

 

Do you want me to list all the mistake nvidia did?

Because i will fill this page right now.

Always going for cheap is NOT good for us consumers. It shifts focus from quality to quantity in the long run.

Well you take my comment out of context. I was saying that the more battles between amd and Nvidia  there are. The better it is for the consumer.

 

They will always need to be in front of the other. If AMD stopped going after Nvidia, there wouldn't be competition in the gpu market and we as consumer would get fucked in the end.

People are stupid, companies are just around to make money.

 

Wrong. Companies exist to deliver products for reasonable prices. They should not be in the game for the money, and money alone.

And in this case, nvidia provided a good product for a reasonable price. It was advertised incorrectly, agreed, but the value was sound before this broke out and will continue to be good value know that the cat is out of the bag.

They are both in the wrong here.

 

Both NVIDIA and AMD.

 

Stop leaning one way or the other or i will have to call you a fanboy im afraid.

 

A list of nvidia mistakes:

 

I don't even know why people are surprised or appalled by this kind of behavior from nVidia. They've been pulling stunts like this since the Geforce FX days. (I'm looking at you, FX 5800 Ultra.)

Actually, lets not stop at the 5800 Ultra and the disaster that was FlowFX, move on to 2006 with the launch of the 320MB 8800 GTS. A card released with too-little VRAM to make the overpriced 8800 GTX look like a sweet deal. In the end it really just made the 8800 GT the better option...

Speaking of 8800 GT, or more specifically the G92 chip, they sure did get their money's worth by re-releasing it for 3 years! (8800 GT in Q3 2007 all the way up to the GT 330 in Q1 2010!)

Oh what's that Fermi? You want in on this too? Well don't be late to the party! Oops, you were! By half a year, in fact. And when the highly anticipated GTX 480 FINALLY arrives, it releases as the single most expensive personal grill ever! Look nVidia, I know the GTX 480 can cook my steak in under 5 minutes but I really just wanted to play Crysis and Metro 2033.

Oh, what's that nVidia? You have the GTX 580 now? It's not nerfed by one SMX, it doesn't compete with the surface of the sun AND it's the same price? Oh you mean the 480 was supposed to suck? No? Well than what the hell is up with this?

(There were some problems with the GTX 600 series as well, but only at the mid tier.)

Basically, nVidia does this pretty much all the time. They are a company, they exist to make money, I get it. But they pretty much do not care for the customer. Well, that's not fair to say.

Its cute that you think that. Companies will always be looking to maximize profit while minimizing costs, thats how you stay in the game. Until companies are all non-profit entities you can keep dreaming about that. Each one handles it a little differently but when it comes down to it, if they can cut corners doing X or Y while only taking Z impact, they will do it.

 

I didnt say anything about nvidia, i have no horse in that race. Im just sick of people trying to say AMD is better/worse than nVidia, or the other way around. They are both companies that have done shitty things in the past, and will again in the future. People need to move on and just buy what they like (Which is exactly what i said in my first post.)

typical marketing maneuver to capitalize on another companies missteps,happens all the time

 

also .my person  response to amd is this: when you can build a more power effiecent chipset that doesn't have have an insane TWM I may consider it until then thanks for the offer but I am pretty damn happy with my 970.

We cant have a good GPU circlejerk without pretending we care about power consumption!

I actually love when companies do this sort of advertising. It provides much needed comedy to events. You know since companies will always push their biggest features and at times compare themselves to the competition often to promote their own product. So when the competition makes a cock-up you can bet money that rivals will jump on it, often with comedic results since its not an official ad campaign for the product but rather a troll campaign to poke fun at the rivals.

 

Its like way back when Xbox One would not allow game trade-ins and Sony just came out and said trade-ins allowed. They even made a video just for the purpose of trolling Microsoft and it was hilarious.

And nvidia stopped low when they did what they did.

They are both assholes.

Happy?

Is Nvidia less of an asshole and a victim now?

*snip dat video*

 

 

This. Its marketing. You love it when sony does it, you love it when nvidia does it, you love it when anyone else does it but as soon as its AMD its low and childish.

 

This is some of my favorite marketing. if its based on something that is 100% legit and its an actual shot directly at something a competitor did its both funny and effective.

 

Obviously overdoing any kind of smear campaign is childish but this is completely within the realm of pure good marketing.

Are you suggesting power consumption isn't a valid argument for choosing one GPU or the other?

No i'm just saying that AMD is the last person to make fun of others since they are pretty much screwing up everything they commit to. Which makes this smear-campaign less tolerable.

Its not a big deal in terms of savings.

Only PSU cost.

 

Almost 100w between amd and intel:

 

Its like 25 bucks a year MAX.

I wouldn't trade my 970s for a AMD card even if they have proper memory. I'd trade my 970s for 980s, that would be okay. :D But nice move AMD..


who cares...
