GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Allegedly Up For Purchase At $3,500 Before Launch

According to a Redditor, one of the biggest computer hardware retailers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has already offered up MSI’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Suprim X for a whopping sum of $3,500. An employee reportedly sent a WhatsApp message to notify interested buyers that the graphics card is available for sale.

The dates are still a bit fuzzy, but the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is rumored to launch this month, or maybe early June. It’s strange that a retailer would risk getting in trouble with Nvidia by selling the Ampere graphics card before its official product launch. However, the Redditor claimed that it’s not the first time that UAE retailers are jumping the gun. It looks like it’s standard practice over in the UAE to sell computer hardware before the official date. The Redditor stated that the GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060 were also clandestinely up for sale ahead of their corresponding launch.
