    Now that pricing is rather ghey for us Yuripeans:

    USA gets it for $1k including VAT
    Europe gets it for 800€ = ~1070$ Excluding VAT
    Now, taking my country with its 21% VAT, as an example: it becomes ~$1290

    USA - $1K, Me - $1.29K

    Feels as if Nvidia wants to put something long and stiff inside European behinds, if You know what I mean... :shadedshu

    You need to take all the expenses and incomes into consideration before you directly compare prices.
    It's not NVIDIA's fault for higher VAT, and they didn't price it like most of others with the standard $ = € + VAT

    No that's your government that's doing that sir. Unless NVIDIA is the one charging you VAT.

    It's more expensive in Europe even BEFORE applying VAT. How's that not Nvidia's fault?

    EDIT: As in: Europe gets it for 800€ = ~1070$ Excluding VAT

    I'll say it again, you cannot moan about different pricing because everything else is different as well.

    And that $70 difference can come from higher expenses to sell it in the EU with all the silly laws.

    It's a premium boutique product, no amount of whining about the price is gonna change the market they are targeting.

    It's more than $70 difference. As the US price has VAT included. So that should also be taken into account. What's the VAT in the US, anyway?

    That's the whole point, NVIDIA isn't responsible for the extra 20% that goes on top of the price...they won't get anything from it.

    Except they do it for every product.

    eee what? Look, in the US it's $1k WITH VAT. Now, what would be the price in the US WITHOUT VAT? Because we should not be comparing the prices while one of them includes VAT, and the other doesn't.
    P.S. Do You even know why Nvidia lists the price without VAT in Europe, but With VAT in USA?

    What if they make a 'cut in the half' version, will it cost 500$?

    Btw, this just means that the computers just got the supercomputers
    What will happen to supercomputers???

    I know that, all I'm saying the difference isn't so big as you're trying to say. AFAIK US doesn't have VAT (sometimes it's only sales tax or something like that which is ~7% - someone correct me if I'm wrong).

    NVIDIA doesn't list it with VAT because all countries have different VAT (some have 18, some 20, 25%...).

    1. It costs more to ship to Europe because of a plethora of regulations. I know this because I've been working in textiles for 15+ years. That's why there is a small increase in price. Its not NVIDIA's problem man.

    2. The US doesn't have VAT. Hell I buy off Newegg because its tax free.

    Guys relax. We all know that the US have some of the best prices for products in the world. Heck, even the gas/oil price in US is more than half from the rest of the world. No need to fight here over the obvious. ;)

    It's not that simple. Don't forget that you are comparing a buy inside the USA with a purchase of a product imported into an other country. This section of the wiki (with the examples) describes it a little bit better.

    Do you think that GPU's are made in the US? Everything is imported man. Same as Europe. We just don't have VAT. However we are catching up to you guys in useless regulations and pointless taxes to line corrupt government officials pockets........but that's for another thread. :laugh:

    don't blame a company for what the government does. The government double and triple dip with taxes all the time. Businesses gets taxed on the income after expenses. You get income taxed and then pay more taxes when paying for products and services. You end up paying taxes with your taxed money. I know I am losing more than half of what i make if I account for all the taxes I pay.

    We have sales tax that can go over 20% in some places. We also have all kinds of ridiculous taxes and more in the works. There's actually a new highway utility tax for hybrid/ev owners in the works where they have to pay an extra $100 or so a year. That's funny since we already pay these taxes in gasoline/diesel and annual registration/fees/hut/etc...
    The lottery has always supposed to be extra funding for education but we're lucky if half of that goes to the schools. You get taxed to hell if you win and even more if you want lump sum
