I'll gladly use your 21% if you use my 23%: deal?
order computer hardware from germany.comparing the prices in slovenia and germany stuff in germany costs 30% less on average.I ordered all of the hardware for my computer from germany and I saved about 300-350eur
VAT rate standard VAT rate reduced
Azores (Portugal) imposto sobre o valor acrescentado (IVA)
u can always move to Azores
oh thanks man xd its a good idea
I have no idea, but these cards are expensive to make. They kinda have to be. It would be interesting to know how much Nvidia "makes" for each card sold.
And @taxes: 25% here! But seriously taxation is also complex and it's not just "they're stealing our moneysss!!!!1!1!" because that's not how it works. Well Italy is in a bit of trouble because of that thing but if it works I'll gladly pay that 25% "extra".
You not taking $999 from me..
I seen that promo PR pic and thought Oh Boy Nvidia is going to have Half Life 2 EP3 for the 690.....That is one sexy card ,But at $999 your better off buying 2 680 and be within 1-2 % performance wise to this.or be like most of us in the real world (I think the guys at Nvidia all think everyone is millionaires like them)And buy 2 7970 and be done with your graphics until Late June October when the refreshed models hit.
999$? Jesus. Why couldn't they make a dual GPU card with like two GTX 660 Ti's? It would still beat the GTX 680, while still having a reasonable price-tag.
the crowbar is tiny .. i doubt i could steal a chewing gum from downtown gangster kids with it. must be for asians with small hands
And come to work on my bike, like always, in the main land?
Nice looking card hat goes off.
Find a job on Azores. Wiki says that the population of Azroes is 250.000.
Or you can move to another EU country that has lower taxes
Lux is a good place
Spain has a VAT of 18% for these kind of products (and not much longer ago, we had 16%). And know what? That doesn't make any difference on the final price. We've got the same prices as other countries with higher VATs, so if you have a business, it's better for you to buy from another country because then that country we'll have to make you a bigger payment of that VAT that the consumer has to pay.
The thing is that while 1 euro has a value of 1'33 USD dollars, the taxes don't go up to 33%. So yes, with their 1 euro = 1 usd policy they're charging an extra 15% on average, and that is without taking into account the taxes of USA, that although being lower, you also have VAT.
Apple for example does have different prices for Europe and for USA. And I think Dell also applies correctly the euro conversion.
1000 dollars ?? Too much !
Do i have to upgrade to PCI-E 3.0 to use it properly, does anyone know???
Wow, that is one GORGEOUS card.
Let's see what zombies can do with it
At least the power connectors aren't piggybacked
You get a cookie for having David Icke as your DP
Did anyone else spot the inconsistencies between the 2 performance graphs?
for example the first shows the GTX690 doing 80fps in bf3 while the second shows 70fps :S
Well spotted. So already has a performance issue with consistency
Though it does look like a beautifully designed piece of work. It's a shame AMD don't put this much design effort into their cards.
This is of course yet another reminder that you should ALWAYS disregard any of the charts the companies release at launch detailing performance figures, because at best they're skewed and at worst they're outright made up by the marketing guys to make sure that the new product looks to be the best thing since sliced bread.
You still can't get a 680 and now this.

EVGA site the same, no stock.
It looks good on paper.
WOW! $1k for a GPU. I don't ever recall seeing a card this expensive, I feel sorry for who ever buy's this (if it even becomes available). Typical Nvidia fleecing the market and over charging, this is BAD for end user's as it will only drive the prices up/keep the prices up for every other card. ATi will follow suit I'm sure :shadedshu
This card should be $650/$750 & top spec single GPU should be no more than $375/$400, plus taxxes of course
Dual GPU board should NOT cost double it's single GPU counterpart
Hrm, i think you might, but not sure, don't have single PCIe 3.0 card.
What I can say, is that I have noticed differences in PCIe 2.0 cards in x8x8 vs x16x16, but it's hard to quantify for comparison purposes. I know 100% for sure, PCIe bandwidth matters with three cards, so I assume that hte same woudl translate over to faster cards on PCIe 3.0.
Sometimes, it's not aobut the overbandwdith needed, but the number of channels the cards communicate with each other, and how they link into the CPU that can matter.
Mind you, i've been saying the same thing for a couple of years now, and not many agree with me. OH well.
$1000 price tag seems a bit high, would have preferred if I could buy for that, tax included!
