Actually if they specs are true (4 pipes and only 128 bit mem interface) then the 3 biggest cost factors have been removed from the total price which will greatly reduce the cost (4 pipe = smaller die, more parts per wafer, 128 bit = easier packaging and layout, 8/6 layer PCB vrs 10 layer PCB, ect). So I could see a something a bit under $200 as beening a good cost target.
