The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti could be so expensive that even cryptominers avoid it

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has been making various appearances over social media platforms ahead of its official announcement, with it currently expected to be unveiled by Nvidia on May 31 with a launch to follow on June 2.

The MSRP has been allegedly set at $999 (about £780/AU$1,400), though previous pricing leaks indicate that retailers may be wildly inflating the listed price before the product has even hit the shelves. Twitter user I_leak_VN has also added additional weight to these concerns after posting a lineup of alarmingly high prices from an unspecified Vietnamese retailer.

Let’s state the obvious here before we go any further – we don’t have any way to substantiate the source of these claims so this is all speculation so far. If the image does have any shred of truth to it though, the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti could come with an eyewatering price tag in certain regions.

When converted from Vietnamese Dong the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X converts to around $3,200 / £2,300 / AU$4,100 , with the MSI Gaming X Trio following at $3,050 / £2,500 / AU$4,000 and the entry-level MSI Ventus 3X OC finishing up at $2,900 / £2,100 / AU$3,700.

It was also previously reported that a local retailer in Abu Dhabi that’s already made an MSI Suprim X version of the GPU available for purchase for an estimated $3500/£2500/AU$4500, so the prices we’re seeing aren’t an isolated claim.
