The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 is already available to purchase through official channels and at more than double its MSRP. NVIDIA's first GA106 card will be available globally, albeit probably in extremely limited quantities, from the end of February.

NVIDIA may have chosen February 25 to launch the GeForce RTX 3060, but one official Palit distributor is already selling the GA106-based card. Worse still, the distributor is selling RTX 3060 cards at outrageous prices.

Zah Computers, based in Pakistan, was brazen in doing so too, boasting on Facebook that it had already sold at least one unit to its Turkish client. However, Wccftech claims to have been told that the distributor has already sold multiple RTX 3060 cards so far.

According to a now-amended product listing, Zah Computers charged PKR 120,000 (~US$750) for a Palit GeForce RTX 3060 Dual OC, which is 2.27x times higher than its US$329 MSRP. Zah Computers is not the only retailer to profit from limited RTX 30 series stock, though. In November, it emerged that a Saudi Arabian retailer was selling a Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti EAGLE OC for SAR 3,699 (~US$986).

Unfortunately, stock levels of RTX 30 series cards will worsen over the next two months, despite the release of GA106 SKUs. NVIDIA has stated that it should have more stock come late April or early May, but that will be at least seven months after the company launched cards like the RTX 3080.
