News Gigabyte RX 6950 XT Australia Listing Hints at Extreme Prices

As an Australian, I am not surprised.

Every GPU is always more here. US is a much bigger market, can't charge as much there.
Similar reason why Japan's hardware MSRP is a lot higher and most US readers were like "wow, look at that price gouging in Japan."

I'm also certain importation taxes have something to do with it too.

I am actually surprised the 3090TI is only that much, I was expecting it to be higher when I looked last month, must be easier to get now. I still can't afford them but compared to 2 years ago, at least they exist now and in stores. You can't buy my RTX 2070 Super at all anymore. That was as a concern for a few years. At least I could replace it with something else now.
