Maybe $369 .. the launch price of the HD 6970
ironic about premium pricing, isn't it. Don't say we didn't warn AMD that they were heading down a Premium Pricing Path with Pitfalls they built for themselves (and caught their fans on)
AMD won't reimburse the early adopters of the overpriced HD 7970/7950. They don't have the courtesy as "aggressors" to even offer the 3 game d/l. In contrast, Nvidia refunded the GTX 280 early adopters when they dropped the price after the HD 4870 came out.
The saddest thing is that we predicted this scenario accurately. Who at AMD bungled this launch? He probably got a promotion
- AMD clearly fired the wrong people and they are floundering as badly against Nvidia as they have been against Intel. All they have left is their unethical "advertising" on the tech forums to try to spin the situation and blame it on Nvidia when it is their own greed and short-sightedness that got them in this difficult situation. Their analysis of the market sucks.
