NVIDIA is expected to launch the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti for US$999, but leaked prices suggest that AIBs and retailers have other ideas. One retailer is reportedly already selling the GA102-based card for nearly US$3,500.

NVIDIA may have delayed the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti's release by two weeks, but multiple examples of the GA102-based card have emerged online. According to previous leaks, NVIDIA will launch the card for US$999, early retail prices suggest that AIBs will charge way beyond that. While this is unsurprising given how previous RTX 30 series launches have gone, retailers are selling the RTX 3080 Ti between 30% and 350% higher than the RTX 3080 Ti's supposed launch price.

For example, Videocardz discovered that an Australian retailer listed two Gigabyte cards for AUD$1,732.75 (~US$1,409), which would be extortionate in its own right. However, a New Zealand retailer has priced two other RTX 3080 Ti custom cards at NZD$2,543.46 (~US$1,830) and NZD$3,152.50 (~US$2,268). Additionally, an MSI RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X will set you back approximately US$3,500 in the UAE.

Ultimately, the RTX 3080 Ti may not even be usable currently, given that NVIDIA has not released any drivers for it. Nonetheless, the leaked packaging does confirm that the card has 12 GB of GDDR6X VRAM, which aligns with previous rumours about the RTX 3080 Ti. NVIDIA is now expected to launch the RTX 3080 Ti on May 31, as we reported yesterday.
