When was the last time AMD produced a card like the 2080ti?
You mean a competitive card at the top end?
The 290X had caveats the 2080ti doesn't have.
The first is with the not particularly liked DLSS which compromises image quality and still doesn't get much over 60fps at 1080p and the other 2 are terrible for a £500 card. If you are happy with it that's fine but if I spent that money on a card I would expect significantly more fps than that at 1440p let alone 1080p.
What are those?
You're being facetious right?
You've only got to look at launch day reviews of the 290x.
And before that AMD pulled off a shambolic pre order tactic on them I've never seen since or before.
Performance was great, but the heat and noise wasn't if you wanted that performance.
And then Nvidia launched the 780ti before AIB cards IIRC.
And then it took AMD far far too long to move on from the 290X and when they did it was second best.
I owned and set up a few 290 and 290x systems, because they were brilliant performance and price though.
I think the 290X and 290 did do well. But there was no follow up performance wise that offered what the 290X did compared to the competition after that.
You think because AMD launched the 290X with a crap cooler it forever tarnished the card, even tho the card's were pretty good with AIB coolers?
Didn't say that. But at launch it certainly would have done.
Again, the 290x and 290 overall did do well.
But there was no follow up either. And the follow up took forever.
People haven't been able to buy consistent GPU's from AMD that offered what the 290X did.

None the less the 290X was a great card and competitive at the top end, AMD lost market share not just at the top end but through out the line up for the life duration of the card's.
AMD lost market share when Nvidia launched the 900 series by the looks of it.
And when AMD rebranded most of the 200 series.
Doesn't look like you can say people didn't buy AMDs flagship product
I think they sold more Maxwell Titan-X cards at £850 than AMD sold 290X's at less than half that.
Wasn't that titan capable of other stuff than gaming? Like to a very high degree
Not that i know of, as far as compute goes the 290X was faster.
It did. Google even auto-completed 290x with 290x hair dryer
What about the endless memes?
I had one but with a dwood bracket and 120mm AIO bolted to it. Good card.
Maxwell was the first Titan that dropped compute support . I think that was the moment Nvidia realize the market could sustain higher prices

I like AMD's TressFX much better:
Well, AMD simultaneously launched R9 Fury X and R9 390X in June 2015 to combat GTX 980 and GTX 980 Ti and they successfully managed to do so:
I think a bunch of brand snobs trolling AMD are only persuading themselves.
This is the plague of the modern times, unfortunately. What happens to people?!
