    Going by the quality of GPU and prices they have been launching at, I’d wager there is a secret agreement between Nvidia and AMD.

    5 years ago they would try to give better value with each generation, faster cheaper and more available. That competition got us the gems like gtx970, gtx1060, rx480/590 and rx5700.

    Now we have to choose between overpriced or nerfed hardware like 4050, rx6500, 4070ti or 7700xt.

      It’s not a secret agreement. The fact that they’re effectively a duopoly (Intel I guess makes GPUs now), price gouging is as easy as copying the already successful competitor (AMD copying nVidia).

      No need for price fixing agreements.

        Yeah they both probably outsource the pricing model too third party ai company. that comes up with the best price for them. Good chance they both use the same comapny as well and since they both use the same company it’s like non active price fixing. Also it makes it so they can say it’s not them
