    best one I remember is GeFroce 4 AKA GeForce 2 rebadge, that ended up selling shitloads, despite Radeon having superior cards at that time. Would love to have nvidia marketing boys working for me :)

    Yikes almost August and still nothing. Navi cant come soon enough
    lol those should have been $850aud from the start and thats still too much for a gpu, same with the 1080.
    NV are stupidly overpricing their gpu's enjoying those phat margins.

    https://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/review/inno3d/geforce_8800_gts_512mb_i-8800gts-h5gtcds/218705/

    remember this thing in 2007 at 500aud (632aud in cpi inflated dollars) ? it was a slightly upper midrange card. (for me i got 2 of these for an sli experiment, then sold them)

    https://www.anandtech.com/show/2222
    8800gtx was around 850$ aud? which is just over a grand in adjusted 2017 dollars.
    and the 8800 ultra...forget about it :lol:


    performance per dollar in relative terms, it seems to me that the value is slightly better graded in the current lineup.

    I gotta disagree mate. I've got a GTX1080 in my desktop at home and an R7 370 in my laptop. The R7 370 drivers are a pain in the arse. Some games it doesn't even pick up that there is a card and reverts to the cpu graphics, they frequently crash, i'm unable to assign a fan curve etc etc. I've followed every guide online for possible fixes to improve stability but have not had any luck. Tried different versions, tried third party software, reformatting, changed bios settings, I've spent hours and days on it and only ended up more frustrated then when i started. During all this time i got to know the drivers back to front. As the GTX1080 is my main gaming rig I've gotten to know the nvidia drivers back to front too.

    I'm not trying to fan boy here, i honestly have no preference between the two, i think brand loyalty is dumb. I bought the 1080 because it was the best available at the time and had AMD had a better card available at the time i would have purchased it instead. I'm just commenting on my experience between the two manufacturers drivers, which I've found nvidia to be objectively better.
