What does AMD have that can compete with that feature?

Uh, the fact that they cost like $100-$200 less for a comparably powered card?

Well, they did before the bitcoin ass clowns jacked up the prices. But that'll go back to normal in a few weeks.

Most of their cards don't even cost 200$. That's a huge hyperbole. The price difference tends to be tiny. It's as it always has been. AMD has a slight edge in price/performance ratio, while NVidia has better software and other extras. Right now, these include PhysX, ShadowPlay and NVidia Inspector.

Here where I live, the AMD cards are actually more expensive than Nvidia ones.

But I always had more luck with them. I had 4 NVIDIA cards, and all of them where more unstable than the AMD (or ATI) cards I had.

Now I decided to go AMD again, even if it was more expensive. And I'm not sorry. I rarelly suffer from crashes ever since I got it, while all my NVIDIA cards where a lot more unstable.

nVidia Inspector isn't an nVidia program. It's 3rd party.
nVidia has Cuda, PhysX, ShadowPlay, 3D Vision, GameStream, and GeForce Experience, as well as some extra business oriented apps, like nView for their Tesla cards.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

I know. It's still nice and there's no AMD equivalent I know of. Who made it makes little difference to the end user.

physx can be used on AMD cards, it just hits the performance harder, but unless you got a bad card the game will still be playable FYI you dont need 60+ FPs for a game to be playable, 40+ is perfectly fine
