There are other factors too. The UK/EU have more consumer rights, these add to the cost of doing business in these regions.I'm not sure if the author realises VAT is not uniform in all EU member countries. In Poland it's 23% and € is not the national currency.
Also, don't compare German market to whole Union. It's not a determinant.
Never in a million years would NVIDIA exclusively sell in the U.S.I wonder if the higher margins will justify selling a couple thousand units across a whole continent.
Not that Nvidia ever gave a <Mod Edit> about pricing their garbage in a range where it makes economic sense for anyone in Europe to buy them; but I wonder if they're ok to exclusively sell in the US this time around.
Yep. The article feels like a (U.S.) author just realised that either a) VAT exists or b) thinks Europeans pay VAT + some american-ish tax.All the high-tech things is more expensive in Europe. In France, we have 20% vat. In germany 19%. In most european countries it is between 15 and 25%..
So all is more expensive than the official prices of USA, which are told without vat. Even if americans pay more than that, because of additional local taxes.
So your article is nothing new..
