So 2 460s outperform my single 480 that i bought two weeks ago, and they cost 100$ less, while running cooler and using the same power. Should Nvidia send me a check for $100? :kaola:

lol.

I think ATI should reimburse me $140 since I got 2 5850s for $600 and a pair of 460s is only $460... and performs similar or better.

Why? people buy HD5870 for $100(33%) uplift from HD5850 regardless of the 10-15% performance difference.

On their last financial statement, NVidia has $1.5b in the bank with no debts, so its not like they'll miss it.

The difference is that people pay 100$ more for a 5870 than a 5850 because the 5870 is 10-15% BETTER.

2x GTX 460 is anywhere from 5-10% BETTER than 1x GTX 480 and costs 60-100$ less

People will still buy the GTX480 with the reasoning that they can add another one later for SLI. Pricing on GPU´s has never been linear with performance.
HD5970 = $700 same performance 2xHD5850 in Crossfire = $600. Should ATI pay back every one $100 that bought HD5970.

This was really more of a "woe is me" thread than an actual attempt to justify having Nvidia send me money :/

We have always paid a premium for the high end cards.
