Here Is Why AMD Fury X Can Not Be Limited to 30,000 Units
Some sources, with insight of AMD’s business plans, are confirming that neither AMD’s Fury X will be limited to 30,000 units, nor will it come with only liquid Cooling.
To make it more comprehensive, the chip will be available for almost every potential buyer; and, as for as the cooling of the Fiji chips matters, it will get both air and liquid cooling solutions.
The recent claim, which was made by an online news website, about limited edition of Fury X simply makes no sense.
First and foremost argument is related to finances. AMD’s Vice President and General Manager of the Graphics Business Unit, Matt Skynner once revealed his company usually spends $250 million to one billion to design a GPU.
Now considering the size and complexity of Fiji, we can safely assume that it will cost nearly more than any other build. Logic suggests that the larger cost can be turned into profits only by selling more units.
If the rumor regarding 30,000 Fury X units is believed valid, AMD will get $30,000,000 in revenue if it sells each unit for $1000.
This rate means AMD’s revenue generation after 6 months will be $30 million, in exact calculations. By selling same number of GPUs at same price in the next year, AMD will make another $45 by the middle of next year. Which is not even half of the manufacturing cost. So why would AMD take such a decision, which can inflict such a loss on the company?
