Thats the exact point of an MSRP, to show you if a retailer is charging a premium that the manufacturer does not think is reasonable.I wonder how long before they stop publishing a MSRP? As it is getting to be meaningless, and show how GREEDY some stores are. Lets face it they have no incentive to sell any item at a lower price,
They're a bit too power hungry to be "great", but the price will be right when all the 2nd hand ex-mining cards flood the market...These are going to be great 1080p cards when they actually become available to buy in 2 years.

The problem right now is that the MSRP is by no means "reasonable".Thats the exact point of an MSRP, to show you if a retailer is charging a premium that the manufacturer does not think is reasonable.
I expect it is to add an additional heatspreader for the GDDR6X which gets unacceptably hot when mining but is fine under gaming loads.So for gamers, MSI is using plastic backplate for the last 4 months since the card was released. When miners are the main ones buying up all the GPUs out there, MSI suddenly releases a version with metal backplate?
Sweden's minimum wage : low balling 2500 eurosIn Sweden the typical wholesale price is above MSRP
Reasonably speaking: When setting a price, should affordability at a specific location be a more important factor than the actual costs?Publishing the same MRSP for everyone in the world as if they have the same funds available is just dumb and insulting, ...
And that is why people die of hunger, have no medice and rely on external help. When you set prices based on maximizing profit you will have 3 groups : 1 group has a cheap product, 1 group has the MRSP product and the last group gets the shaft.Reasonably speaking: When setting a price, should affordability at a specific location be a more important factor than the actual costs?
And yet these were attainable at decent prices on gen 6xx, 9xx and before. 1xxx, 2xxx and 3xxxx have seen prices skyrocket with no reason other than they can still run away with it due to credit banking being at low rates(talking about normal prices under normal circunstances).@blacknemesist
You're comparing apples to oranges here. What it typically looks like in reality is that essentials like food and fuel is low cost in low income countries, because these products are domestically produced and/or subsidised by the local government. On the other hand electronics like computers cost more than they do in high income countries, due to several factors, making these products even less attainable for the average citizen.
