    Yeah but we also dont know the margins on the cards or the production volumes... even if the 28nm cost is higher - if the margins are squishy enough to strategically price the card they should do so. After all, it won't help to keep a static % profit if it means you don't benefit from an early launch.

    They'll want to cut into a nice chunk of Nvidia's market share, and, you're right, they won't do it with a $500 card. It would be unfortunate if they couldn't produce enough units to take advantage of what they have, but scarcity would be the only way the price would stay that high.

    It's not a fake. It's from AMD's review guide (as in the link below):
