What a completely disingenuous title. 1) You can't actually buy these chips yet from their own website or any distributor I have come across. Their stock is zero. 2) $252 each is not a 'cheap' chip and is certainly unusable for any consumer application. It is just the Altera marketing department's fantasy that this chip has actually 'shipped'.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
