Why not create something far more advanced than the competition?

When AMD releases a GPU, it seems like the competition has something far more advanced either already being sold, or waiting to be sold right after AMD releases their product.


How can AMD beat Nvidia's GPU's?... Build a GPU that is more powerful than 2x 1080TI's, and is several generations ahead.


Below is the dream GPU which will destroy the competition. I understand that engineering such a GPU takes time, but why not invest in something like this? Obviously don't make a dual GPU single card such as in the past, those were a mistake. Make a card with extremely profound specs, something Nvidia would never expect. Because the next gen game people will be playing is games such as Star Citizen.


Nvidia only does 10% performance boost increments each year, when a new card is released, so release one that is 100% better.
