RV770-based products can be sold for as low as $150, and I'm talking about finished ones. ATI has delivered wtf-levels of performance at a very low price point. G92/G94 is history. Only UNICEF rescue-aid kind of pricing can sell it in today's market. RV770 wasn't designed to take on G200 either. It's become a policy for ATI not
to develop large monolithic GPUs ever, instead develop powerful, cheap GPUs that can be used in dual-GPU boards to compete against monolithic high-end from NVIDIA, or single ones in high/mainstream boards. That scheme didn't quite take-off with RV670, apparently with RV770 it just worked.
