How much does an Nvidia card cost to produce?

WE HAVE SEEN AN INTERESTING document containing prices of some older Nvidia cards, component by component - the so-called bill of materials (BOM). It was interesting to see how much Nvidia had to spend in order to make one of its cards.

they set us up the BOM

so far for my contribution to the subject

BOM contains part of the materials used.

There are other materials cost not factored in ..... commonly in electronics industry materials considered as "floor inventory" are -

1) Solder used in wave soldering machines.
2) Yield factor in varies stage of assembly.
3) Actual usage versus BOM ...... plus a few more.

While Standard Cost would include -

1) BOM
2) Factory Overhead absorption (include in-direct labor, facility expenses)
3) Director Labor

It's nice to know the BOM structure, but it is not the only cost of a product.
