New type of GPU - modular graphics card

How about the idea of creating a new product - a modular graphics card with replaceable and expandable memory of different performance / timings? Or even with a removable processor.

This allows users to purchase your card at the lowest price and subsequently increase its performance as far as financial possibilities are concerned.

Re: New type of GPU - modular graphics card

It is more cost effective to make a GPU they way they are made now. Also you cant buy a "cheap" card and upgrade it down the road. Look at a mainstream GPU like RX 480. Its $240 MSRP for 8GB version. Now look at the most budged R3 + B350 + 8GB of RAM. Its around the same price so you do not save anything.
