But, Australian pricing is mostly cheaper than the UK. You just have a worthless currency so the numbers are higher.

So surely thats a problem with the Aussie market not AMD? Just import it from Hong Kong.

you guys do realise the 295x2 cost $1499 when it came out.....

Price is irrelevant when you consider the R&D gone into something this

No it's AMD and the shops, Not trying to be rude but you guys don't understand how things work here and pricing. I don't try and understand how it works in UK or Europe i'm usually pretty good at picking prices when it comes to thing

When the AMD 295x2 was out here it was $1699.00 so this new GPU is going to be anywhere between $2000-2500 here every new gen of GPU's all ways has a mark up in price.

Also it's just not worth importing it from Hong Kong either.

I think we do.

You're a small market that isn't geographically near anywhere.

So you're guessing and not actually going on facts?

Clearly you don't because it's equally expensive to buy hardware here, most countries are relatively expensive in comparison with the US or Asia. I checked a fair few examples and if anything things are slightly cheaper in Australia, not quite the case with AMD hardware but still not a 120% discrepancy.

ASUS 980Ti Matrix Platinum

CPL - $1249 AUD (£678)
OCUK - $1269 AUD (£689)

EVGA GTX970 Superclocked ACX2.0

CPL - $515 AUD (£280)
OCUK - $532 AUD (£290)

Gigabyte GTX Titan X

CPL - $1569 AUD (£853)
OCUK - $1767 AUD (£960)

Sapphire Fury X

CPL - $999 AUD (£543)
OCUK - $937 (£509)

Well you got the pricing wrong on the 970 & the Fury X, either way it's still not going to be a cheap card my guess it's still going to be a $2000 or more GPU

Only because Australia is a very weird place. 90% here are either from the US or UK and no one cares about Australia's weird dollar.

Also to why the price is a bit higher than 2 Nanos: Aio cooler, High End PLX chip, a lot power phases and circuits on one board. Is an engineering marble and that has to be paid somehow.
