hold on guys
I just had the best idea

>AMD makes a new GPU that beats 980Ti (with HBM2 or whatever)
>release it for $199
>everybody buys it
>noone wants nvidia anymore
>nvidia can't compete with so low prices
>AMD gets tons of money because everyone and their dog got this new GPU
>AMD stocks skyrocket

I just saved AMD

>buying amd ever

Undercutting that much is illegal.
You can't sell those large dies for that little money, that's a major loss and AMD doesn't have the spare cash to live that out for a year.

tl;dr you're not smarter than AMD.

Bullshit . You can undercut all you want. This is America for fuck sake

really?
you can't price your own products how you want?

>>52478362
Yeah you can. If they could somehow make money some other place and stay afloat they could give the damn things away if they wanted
>>
>>52478329
America isn't even 10% of the world's GDP.
Laws exist against stupid shit like this outside of your nanny state.

Try making sense next time you post.

The thing is products are usually priced so that they earn "profit". Without profit there's normally not reason to sell something. Notice the "normally" part. If you undercut your competition so much that it actually costs you money as well but you're significantly larger than your competition or have other sectors that can make up for it then you'll still have the advantage in the long run. But this also opens you up to anti-trust lawsuits because what you're doing is literally exactly what anti-trust laws were created to prevent.

>>52477518
All that money, and the drivers will still be fucking shit.

>AMD sells $199 graphics card offering flagship level performance
>people still buy the nvidia cards with a heavy premium and worse performance anyway
>>
>>52478362

Dumping is often an illegal act due to its anticompetitive nature.

For example, gasoline, many states forbid it being sold below a certain margin.

>>52477518
Whats the points?

A 380X can play everything on 4k at 30-45 fps, thats pretty good, a fury x or a titan x play at 4k at like 50-45 fps and they cost a lot more.

The HBM2 and fabs for a high end card cost more than $200 shitlord.

>>52480563
>he actually believes this
Good goy.

My prediction:

Huge Polaris - Fury Rage Maxx (AMD's real answer to the Titan)
Big Polaris - FuryX 2 (Electric Boogaloo)
Big Ploaris Cut - Fury 2
Big Polaris TDP - Nano 2
Little Polaris - 490X
Little Polaris cut - 490
Fiji TDP (Nano) - 480
Tonga XT GDDR5X (380X 4GB) - 470X
Tonga GDDR5X (380) - 470

If you think this would be a poor line up, you are a moron.
If you're concerned about rebrands in the budget area, you are a true poorfag
If you have doubts about buying a Nano rebrand in 2016, you are a moron.

>>52478115
'Undercutting' would have the reverse effect actually. AMD would show their costs to a court, then Nvidia would be investigated for price fixing.

And then the industry would finally return to sanity for 4 more years.
>>
>>52481045
I don't think AMD have ever mentioned using GDDR5X, they said they'll use HBM2 and GDDR5 in the price brackets where HBM2 is too expensive (and the GPU isn't fast enough to need it).
