wtf they gone pay $ 250 for the Phi card, if I want one I have to pay $ 3500

Because A) they are buying a megaton of the those sweeet cards (if you have a half a billion you too could probably get them for 3bills) b) they are being sold at a loss. Intel wants this SUPER super computer as bragging rights AND they plan to make their money on the back end ie its razer blade model...where the razor 'holder' is sold at cost or below...but the replacement parts (or in this case warranty contracts) are sold at a premium ;)
