They should send them a w9000 with the circuits on the PCB arranged to spell "thank you."

Haha, good for AMD. Kind of ironic because i pledged that my next build would be all AMD stuff. Intel and nVidia are like the Apple and Nike of computers (respectively). Intel makes the same product but gives you barely a bit more with each version and nVidia is all flash and does ok but they have way higher prices.

Intel is the Apple of computers? What does that make Apple?

Apple is the Apple of trash can filler.

Say what you will about AMD, but they have a world class sales team...

If only AMD could have gotten its APUs into the Macbook air, but it just wasn't ready for prime time. The HD 4000 that is in those is a shameful, useless GPU.

If only Apple would end its trend of putting wimpy GPUs in its laptops. Nvidia has been selling Apple crap GPUs for years now so I don't think that they've got a handle on this but anything is better than Apple's current plan of pushing Intel's iGPU.

Good job, AMD. Keepin' Nvidia on its toes!
EXAMPLE: I bought my 780 on launch day for 663. A few months later, the 290X comes out.. and BOOM 780's are around 500 now. Competition is great for my poor ass.

780's aren't cheaper because of the 290X. They're cheaper because the 290 non X still clobbers them in benchmarks.

The Sapphire Tri-X 290 stomps all over even the 780 Lightning.
