Atmega2560 is only an 8-bit MCU but it is so much more expensive compared to 32-bit MCU used in Arduino Due. I am puzzled. Isn't Atmel killing off Atmega2560 by pricing them far more expensive over more powerful 32-bit MCUs? What are the advantages of Atmega2560 compared to the cheaper and yet more powerful 32-bit MCUs?
