The "shooting in the foot" isn't about the boost Edition. It is about price. Board partners got the clearance to reduce HD 7950 pricing to $320 in order to clear out stocks of existing cards, making way for the Boost Edition. Now we're being told that the Boost will also be $319....which leaves the board partners where exactly? With $319 reference designs they can't sell?

It is absolutely great for consumers but AMD's tactics on this one are very interesting and actually quite unique in my experience.
