That line means pricing EACH if you buy 100 units. Not price for 100 units. You will be disappointed. $1800 in single unit quantities. Click on the "order now" link and TRY to add ONE to your cart. You'll see $1801.70.

To be fair to TI, they likely spent a lot of money developing this thing, and yields on that kind of part are probably poor.  Probably spent a
  few million just bringing it to this stage.

Hopefully, the price will come down over time.   The first 8080 CPUs,, for example, were quite expensive.
