With 20% tax this product should be no more than £447.82 at MSRP that is!

$488 = £373.19
20% of that = £74.63
MSRP = £447.82 (including 20% tax)

As we all know UK law allows retailers to charge whatever the hell they want without any influence from manufacturers but cmon Scan you're taking the !!

Fair enough but would bring my workings out to about £531 quid so still an extra 70 quid or so added on for good measure.
It's unusual for prices to be sooo far off MSRP surely even with supply and demand. It's a pre-order currently

It's mad. Especially when the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X is £295ish these days.

Yeah 100%
To be fair. AMD will be happy

Well the 2700x is still slower. But its kinda the same boat as Nvidia and AMD. All that extra performance for absurdly more money.

More thinking of the £350 i5-9600K, the 6c/6th model. Yeah, it will have a single-core speed advantage, but AMD offers a huge amount of value, especially when it includes the Wraith Prism cooler.

A 8 core/16 thread Cpu for double the price of AMD, yeah its faster but not 300 more faster, that is absurd.

Part of me really wants those 2800X rumours to be true. It would be cool to see a higher-end 8-core from AMD, though I don't think AMD can make a faster model, given the typical overclockability of 2700X CPUs.

They could get the boost clocks to 4.4, like the Threadripper 2950X, but getting any higher would be a challenge.
