Well, that is an appropriate term for it. It is a terrible value.DOA?
Nope, nVidia would never allow that.Has such dramatic title has ever been used on any of Nvidia last two gens offerings because of their prices by Steve, Tim, HU or TS?
No, but he did call it "dumb".Anyways, you can manipulate this as you wish, one example, its faster than a 3090Ti, which launched at US$ 2K and that GPU was never called "DOA".
AMD is kinda being forced to be overly greedy right now because they have to rake in enough profit to try to match nVidia's R&D budget. With everyone and their mother stupidly throwing money at nVidia, they have no choice but to come close to matching nVidia's greed if they're to have any hope of remaining competitive.I do believe that AMD was beyond greedy and stupid in naming this 7900 XT, instead of what really is, a 7800 XT and not pricing it accordingly which should be US$ 550 to 650.
As you know, I tore a strip off of them for their RX 7900 XTX "review", however, I don't consider the RX 7900 XT to be the least bit defensible. Whoever decided that the price for it should be set at $900USD should be shot.But really, DOA?
I am beyond disappointed with the AMD trashing on HU and TS.
