Oh you want to use bus width and convert it to $$$ LMAO.
The 680 has the smaller bus and should have been cheaper than 480 at launch. How much was the 480 at launch $499, same price.
How much does it cost to manufacture a video card? You keep talking like you know? Next you going to claim YOU manufacture video cards?
It what way did I say that.
So if you have the exact same parts on a card and you use 6 on one and 8 on another then the one you used 8 on costs more. You didn't read any of the links I posted or what I posted and it's obvious.
If you can really show me how I am wrong by what I said other than "Because I know so" then do it ? You keep talking like you know how something works which is what I have asked of you and you won't do it. You still haven't and prefer to just insult and say things like
Next you going to claim YOU manufacture video cards
Of course I don't know for sure but is trying to figure out while gathering information a bad thing ?
I never said a smaller part should cost less just less of a certain same part. You didn't read what I said. You are just refusing to prove anything. If I am wrong and you can show it then I will concede.
The GTX 680 was probably a planned mid-range card, we will never know I assume, and has a 256 bit bus like the GTX 560. It might be safe to assume the GTX 680 was a planned replacement card for that card. Nvidia was able to make a cheaper cost card and still compete and prevail.Edited by hednik - 3/22/12 at 9:50am
