Memory is super cheap.

Memory is still a relatively sizeable chunk of manufacturing cost. given an old 2011 chart on costs
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

for the 580, the memory on it took 13% of the total graphics card cost, this was the 1.5GB model so the 3gb would be twice that(26%, which is a lot relative to the cost)

albeit buying memory chips has decreased in price, the amount being used on a board has increase offsetting the price decrease. If applied today, it still probably cost a decent amount to put memory chips on a board.

Make it the same size as the R9 Nano, and I'm interested.

I very much doubt 480 will touch Fury, probably reach 390X/980 at best or between 980 & 970

but at $199 its still the value


but too bad they gave up on competing with 1070 until Vega

If true, the good news is this will be the final nail in the coffin for the 960. The bad news is I will not be able to sell my 970 for a reasonable price anymore. biggrin.gif

Unless you are a shareholder at AMD I don't see why that's any of your concern.

I for one hope they sell the card for $3 I don't care how they make the margins work, neither should you thumb.gif

Given nVidia's recent pricing I think a 1060 will be will probably be in the $275-300 range.

Hell, even if the 1060 beats it, by how much? Sadly I'm on a budget so does gaining an extra 5-10% in performance equate in $50-100 more in cost?

Remember, Sony sold a complete console for $400 with 8GB GDDR5 and made a profit.... three years ago! (when they needed twice the number of chips to reach 8GB)
