The problem with that kind of thinking is that the same price hikes and problems trickle down to the rest of the stack. The PC market does need ultra high end products, but it doesn't need ultra stupid prices. You are not buying a professional card with the extra bells and whistles that come with it, the 3090 is a consumer grade product with the artificial limits put in place to differentiate it from the Titan and Quadro class cards.But he is NOT correct in this sort of thinking. Its simplistic and wrong. CPU and GPU and tech in general always needs the 'stupid high end' that will never make much sense to 99% of people. Guess what? Those products *are not aimed at you*. Please try to understand this.
They exist for very good reasons. You and Steve can stamp feet all day about it or actually try to understand the R&D behind why these sort of products exist in many areas in all of society. If you dont want to take time to understand why, thats fine, but you both remain wrong.
