When Nvidia came out with the Kepler GTX 680, it was $50 less than the 7970, quieter (stock cooler at least), used less energy, used less space, and performed better (as far as I've found). The 670 then came out and beat the 7970 in certain games, like BF3, so AMD updated their drivers and reduced their prices. Nvidia holds the professional market with Quadros and Teslas, but AMD parts are in the Wii U, the upcoming PS4, and as far as we know, the XBox "Durango." It seems like most people choose to recommend AMD cards for gaming rigs because of the price to performance, but Nvidia has CUDA, and adaptive Vsync. What do you guys think will happen to the competition between these two companies? If there are any inaccuracies in this description, do tell me, and I will change it.
