Report: Nvidia GTX Titan-Z to Hit Retail April 29

The Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan-Z is a monstrous graphics card that is expected to carry a monstrous price tag of $2999 in the US. Unfortunately, that price excludes taxes, which will make the final cost for the unit even higher. A report on the Japanese website Hermitage Akihabara indicates that the card might cost about 400,000¥ there including taxes. At the time of writing this translates to a devastating $3907.

For European customers we often find that the US price excluding taxes is what Europeans pay including taxes, meaning that Europeans will have to part ways from approximately €2999 for the card. This translates to about $4150 incl VAT. This is often a worst-case scenario, though. The card is reportedly going to make its arrival to retail on April 29, so we'll find out for sure in just a few days.

    I wonder what the profit margin is for these. Hopefully, pricing the high end "consumer" cards to be affordable only to the upper class isn't a trend.

    How convenient for those getting back tax refunds right about now/then.

    Yeah, they don't seem to understand how prices in Europe work.

    we have 21% taxes here in Belgium. So 2999$ = 2169,57€ + 21% = 2625.18€ all inclusive wich is 3628,79$. This card will not sell here, the max for a graphics card should always be about 700€. (about 970$)

    OMG, is Nvidia that crazy to try and charge that much for an enthusiast video card??? At that price I'd much rather use it for something more practical, like a down payment for a nice car or a house. I'm sure there will be some fools with more money than brains though...

    This is a complete waste of money. If you're a pro, why not go Tesla or K series instead of this bloated double float gaming card? And then they purposefully disable double power on the gaming cards (600x on, 500x was great). I laughed in NVidia's face at SIGGRAPH 2012 at the show and their parties for doing that. Pros would never desaturate the T or K market, only enthusiasts would have a small bridge to learn on.

    Not that it is relevant at all, but I actually live in Europe. The Netherlands to be precise.

    Now, while I agree that the price for Europe will probably end up landing somewhere around the €2600 - €2700 mark after a few days/weeks, initial prices are almost always the USD number with a Euro symbol in front of it. The R9 295X2 for example, is available right now for pre-order for about €1499 here (incl VAT), and its US MSRP is $1499 (Excl VAT).
