    "...expected to be in stores worldwide around the end of July 2017" seems about right for a Polaris gpu.

    ^ "It turned out that we can't twist the arms of all of our AIB partners with just paperwork"
    ^ "Consumers figured out we're being anti-competitive and our AIB partners are being thrown under the bus for our actions, damaging sales and reputation"

    Pretty sure this is the correct way to un-dilute the statement.

    No don't be silly, as a walking wallet, I mean customer, I've had nothing but trouble telling what GPUs I buy. Obviously GPP was in my benefit and we will all be much worse off without it. Now we'll be buying cards and have no clue that we're not buying the right ones! Oh NVidia please help us! (possibly used the world's supply of sarcasm there, we'll all have to be sincere for the rest of the day, sorry)

    Re: MSI unveils MECH 2 Series AMD Polaris graphics cards

    ... we felt that using one gaming brand, a graphics card brand, and interchanging the GPU underneath causes it to be less – causes it to be more opaque and less transparent for gamers to choose the GPU brand that they wanted. ...
    Really? Gamers will get confused if AIB partners release cards with the same brand name but different GPUs?

    This from the company that released two GPUs with different numbers of shaders and called them both GTX 1060....

    I think that sums up exactly what NVidia think of their customers....

    Polaris is still competitive to 1060 and 1050 AMD did a great job on the Polaris architecture no wonder there is no Vega to compete with 1060

    So basically, Jen-Hsun Huang is saying that the nVidia and GeForce branding is worthless as consumers can't tell what they are buying

    Re: MSI unveils MECH 2 Series AMD Polaris graphics cards

    At the core, the program was about making sure that gamers who buy graphics cards knows exactly the GPU brand that's inside
    So, Nvidia think gamers are stupid and illiterate. Nice. Brilliant business move right there, i mean it's really hard to read "Nvidia" and "AMD Radeon".

    Re: MSI unveils MECH 2 Series AMD Polaris graphics cards

    All Nvidia products should now be moved to new AIB branding thus achieving the desired result and avoiding any possible future confusion. Brand names like STINKZ would be ideal.

    Then at least the media could have some fun with slogans and news headlines.
