    The proposed regulation exempts high end GPUs over a certain bandwidth. Since it won't come into force until 2014, chances are all high and most mid-level GPUs will fall outside the regulation.

    Plus yeah, the US and far east will still have the full fat versions so buy them there.

    Or Nvidia/AMD will simply sell the same cards watered down for the EU with 'nudge-nudge-wink-wink' "overclocking" to allow people to get the full power draining experience.

    ...the crap the EU worries itself about however is beyond comprehension. We're a bad cough and a grumpy Greek away from a currency collapse and here they are trying to mess up my game of Crysis...
