Oh please. Anyone with a half brain understand that this card cost way way less than $650 to make. It have few VRMs, the power circuitry is pathetic compared to Fury and GTX 980, the cooling consist of one tiny plastic fan, the card and pcb is short and consist of just a little materials.
The performance will perhaps be +20% in 1080p yet they ask over 100% price over 970 which is also a mini card with great thermals.
No, its me and the rest of the dissapointed people here that had the right predictions that had a realistic price expectation here. But we all forgot that this is AMD, the morons that are currently worth 1/10 of what they used to.
What a joke of a company.

Im convinced now. They have absolutely no freaking clue about what they are doing.
Their engineers are probably good but the people on management that set price, prepare launches etc are morons
and should be fired for AMD to even have a chance to survive this.
