will it be opened? you know like everything else they have in inventory?
Yea but that's what you'd expect from hardware as far back as 2013. Also we're taking a console APU and sticking it into a PC. Linux on the PS4 playing PC games works pretty good all things considered.I think DF did a video on this and it couldn’t perform as well as the console...
The thing is, I think for a lot of people, the building part of the PC is what is fun. Picking specific parts to tailor your build. That's the fun part for me.

I really don't see discrete GPUs coming back to normal prices.
What a lot of people here don't realize is that AMD and Nvidia haven't been making the best GPU's they could make. The RTX 3090 has a memory bus of 384-bit while AMD's RX 6800 XT is using 256-bit. AMD has been really efficient because they aren't even using GDDR6X. Both AMD and Nvidia can go for 512-bit or even HBM memory while utilizing chiplet design. There's a lot of room for improvement here. If you consider that every crypto market will eventually crash then at some point GPU prices will come down hard, especially when AMD and Nvidia release even faster and better GPU's in the future. The problem is not if but when. Prices won't come down this year, and it may take till 2023 before AMD and Nvidia release some really powerful GPU's that will make the RX 6000 and RTX 3000 cards look slow and therefore cheaper. Meanwhile the APU's might be good enough for most people to not care about maximum graphics with maximum resolutions and hundreds of frames per second.I really don't see discrete GPUs coming back to normal prices. If processors have onboard graphics that line up with what used to be a $150 GPU, then they might as well start discrete card pricing at $250 and call it entry level (Well, not counting whatever the current GT 710 equivalent is for the super low end, "i just need to add some video outputs to this workstation" market).
