Why is priced wrong

This price fundamentally changes the following rules:
1. New top of line the single gpu cards are priced to substitute last year cards in the same $500-$600 price range. In the case their just adding this card to the line up. Under this new nvidia logic next 50% performance improvement will cost $2000?
2. I understand that developing cycles have increased since the "compute" GPUs were introduced. We went from 6 months to 24months for a new architecture. A year have passed since the introduction of Kepler, this should be just a refresh of last year design (like 480 to 580). You are paying a premium for last year tech!. And to make it worst are setting the precedent that the full design should cost $1000 not $500.
3. We should get more performance for the same money every year when new video cards are released compared to last year releases. This year we are being charged for new performance. I don't think it has happened before.
Where is AMD when needed the most?
Hopefully there are not many fools falling for this ripoff

Price of the 680 is BS, so this is TOTAL BS. Problem is, they're selling...

newegg has GTX 680s for $460-600 depending on model... how is $460 BS for a highend GPU?

Because the chip in the 680 is the successor of the 560, and should be priced at $300. The chip in the Titan is the successor of the 580, and should be priced $500-$600.

This is part of the problem. AMD isn't competing so NVIDIA can coast ahead.

I think nVidia has wanted for a long time, and has just successfully moved the halo product into the $999 price range.

This is what happens with a lack of competition. Relying on the benevolence of nVidia in pricing will lead to poverty.
