    IF it was their 290X version some would scream DEAL and then grab the limit of 5! Darn LiteCoin miners!
    That said this is $40 less than the MSRP MSI had on it at the first of the year, and this on one of the most celebrated versions enthusiasts clamor for. Interesting that these find a 5% discount while with that amount of appeal, it’s a bizarre market.

    If AMD was selling less card (and to gamers) Nvidia/AIB's normally resist such drops, but with robust sales the pressure to garner or keep pace with AMD sale is important. How does Nvidia justify to shareholders, AMD's massive increase in sales and has acquired a huge amount of market share, and they cut into the profits on top of it?

    Just saying AMD isn't selling to gamers isn't going to fly with investors, they don't care about gamers... just sales. This could be also bad for Nvidia in ways you might not normally consider? As said above the pressure to drive sales means more price adjustment and less profits (and in a slipping market share) might some feel their jobs are at stake? Nvidia is almost certainly making sure their next architecture design has more strategy toward mining and compute functions, even if it means reduced gaming. That's an about-face to Kepler (and perhaps Maxwell) in that the design emphases was gaming only, and low power even if that reduced functionality in other non-gaming tasks. Would Nvidia hold back Maxwell if there some tweaks they can do to become more viable at such workloads?

    The other side AMD is not off the hook. They had a strategy and invested in Gaming Evolved, Mantle, and various gaming initiatives for consoles and APU's that hinge on the gaming houses seeing more gamers moving to the GNC architecture. If Game Houses see/believe that AMD isn't selling to gamers, that can off-put plans by game writer not to move to AMD initiatives. To that note could AMD wean some of their mining proficiency off the next generation to make the…

    ... make the upgrade in mH/s not so attractive? Would doing so piss off investors, can you plan production to meet both gaming and mining, and then watch as mining goes bust and have excessive inventory to discount?

    It's a fine-line AMD and Nvidia are walking to maintain three different masters. The best they could do is find a way to geld a chip that preforms for mH/s, efficiency, and cost, while not good for gaming and start a new crypto-currency card segment.
