>> The 440EP and 460EX are just not expensive enough to support your reasoning.

I'm not sure you got my point.
Nah, I know the price of the currently used chips are not necessarily the reason why Acube sells their boards for a premium. But with the 821xx and 801xx the design could be even more simplified and Acube could try to change their business model from a few exclusive boards to affordable bulk production. It is easier to produce an ultra low cost board with *ultra* low cost chips than with low cost chips. But that needs courage and funds. And of course that attempt is risky and I am not sure whether I would invest my money into such an approach or not.
Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.
