The cost of materials is a very small percentage.When you buy a chip, you're mostly renting time of a fuckton of robots and some people.
>>83819688that's true for most things
>>83819698There's quite a few where the materials are quite expensive, like batteries.
check intel revenue and say that again
>>83819709Well yes, there is the profit margin (big), but the shit you're actually paying for is robots.
Umm, you still need a lot of wagies sweetiehttps://youtu.be/bR-DOeAm-PQ
>>83819747Yes, and research and development which is huge.
Nah you are paying for patents.
>>83819688labor is usually the largest factor in a price for most things
The complicated the modern world is absurdly complicated. You're not explicitly paying for anything except the processor. Then the revenue pipeline back-feeds its way through the 5 primary contributor sectors of processor creation where they become revenue streams which offset cost streams including debts from investment. That's the extremely over-simplified version. Material costs and even labor costs are such a small part of the story.If you think it can be done more efficiently then try your own hand at chip fabrication.

>>83819688>R&D doesn't exist
>>83819688You're always paying for people's labour, cause ultimately it's the only thing that has value.You're either paying for it directly or for its results.
