so what yall are saying this is basically a 3850 but with the Flaws Fixed (AA/AF forceing doesnt take a massive toll)
And from 256 bit reduced to 128 memory bus.

IMO new product should bring new level of performance or new level of performance for amount of money. I guess that AMD need that money badly. I bet that die is not bigger by much compared to 3650 and is 128 vs 256 bit so the PCB is cheaper to manufacture and still that prices. And yes I know that we are buying technology and the sylicon but there is space for lower prices.
