I read that wrong, I read total 8 GB memory, but you meant 8 Gb chips.That is incorrect. The 970 uses 8 full speed memory chips. What was cut down was the memory controller within the 970 itself, causing the last 0.5GB to be accessed at a much slower speed then the rest of the memory buffer.
So we are talking the same thing and different thing at the same time.
But yes, it was shady since they only mentioned when the reviewers (not what we have today) called them out.
But this is what I'm talking about, you have been shown several times now that the price increases are not corresponding to anything but pure greed.
If your way is the correct one, then we shouldnt be paying what we pay today for computers and parts, since you seem to agree that higher performance over the previous gens equals similar or higher prices increases.
I wouldnt want to see what a current PC would cost following that formula, coming from the original IBM PC AT or an Apple Lisa.
