Why not?

How much would you think that 400gr of copper actually costs to the company?

**** all.

I can't understand why they won't adopt the "pull air out of the case through the backplate" design, that HIS so beautifully displays?

if a large company like Intel, who make a nice profit with each sale, use aluminum; then a smaller company like nVidia or ATI will surely not do otherwise;

They're all cheap basterds I tell'ya.

Volume doesn't matter. If they can make a 100 $ profit per 1000 units, by using aluminium then they will use aluminium.

excuse me?

if AMD was able to mass produce their A64 in large volumes they would out price Intel easily; but since they don't have a large VOLUME, they keep the price higher so they can still make some profit.


situation now:
AMD sells 100 FX-55 at $100 profit

situation how it should be:
AMD sells 1000 FX-55 at $50 profit

in the 2nd situation we all win, AMD = more profit, Buyers = Lower Price
