A pretty arrogant stance if you ask me

They had a monopoly in the 1070/1080 segment for a year now, of course they aren't worried and the monopoly phase got longer with every generation since the 7xx cards. AMD could release a 1080ti killer and nvidia wouldn't have to care, AMD gets to be a competitor for 6 months, then nvidia gets to do whatever they want to do when they release the 11xx cards.

Not at all arrogant. Their slowest gaming GPU (5th from the top in the line) is outperforming AMD's current super refined top card. They hold complete middle and up consumer market segment. AMD is struggling to compete with nVidia's 2 year old architecture, and Volta is coming. Tesla is holding firm in supercomputer and deep learning segment. All the software technologies that nVidia has. All the gaming development teams that work with nVidia technology. Many, many more upgrades, and new stuff that nVidia has in development. Years of work with VR and other companies. Gazillion of contracts. All that while AMD is struggling to make hardware. Many years will pass until AMD can contest nVidia as equal.

The pricing on gpu's from Nvidia is too high. Amd just have to get some good bang for buck cards out there. If that happens Nvidia have to change their game.

I am no expert but consumer GPUs are probably the smallest part of nVidia's earnings. One supercomputer has ~ 20.000 Tesla GPUs. Why would they be worried about AMD trying to beat, what is essentially, scrap lying around the basement of their one generation old Tesla architecture. Few years back AMD was kinda slightly threatening Kepler, nVidia just pulled, at that time old, K20 Tesla chip out (K40 was already released), slapped a Titan badge on it and silenced the crowd.

They dump the prices when AMD releases stuff, AMD makes less profit and then a few months later they release their next gen cards, they are without competition and rake the cash in again. AMD doesn't dictate the prices, nvidia does.

haha. AMD shows us the Vega logo and says something vague like "It's pretty nice !".

TBH I think if they showed us the actual Vega specs it would be confirmed within ten minutes where the card will sit. Not that it hasn't been predicted roughly any way, but yeah, hand over them specs and it's all over.
