MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X Surfaces in a UAE Store

A pair of retail boxes of the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X graphics card was spotted at a brick-and-mortar PC parts store in the UAE. The front face of the retail box reveals a board design that's identical to the RTX 3090 SUPRIM X, including its triple PCIe power input configuration, a trio of TorX 3.0 fans, and the metal alloy cooler shroud. The box has clear markings of "RTX 3080 Ti" in the branding corner. According to FaisalKhatib, the Reddit user who took this picture, the card was available to purchase for the equivalent of USD $3,500. You can go ahead and figure out a way to buy it, but the card is a paperweight without a driver.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is rumored to be slotted between the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3090, to help NVIDIA better compete with the Radeon RX 6900 XT. It maxes out the 384-bit wide GDDR6X memory interface of the "GA102" silicon, but with 12 GB of memory, as opposed to 24 GB on the RTX 3090. It's also rumored to be closer to the RTX 3090 in CUDA core count—10,240 of them—than the RTX 3080.

Really sad. Msi did this before also, and now they did it again before release date. And reddit post got removed both times in no time. Another post about a big Retailer from EU that putting/listing 3000 series gpus on Ebay (or other place, couldn't remember) with almost 2-2.5X MSRP instead of giving them to the people waiting on the GPU order line for months and disabling their orders, also removed. That guy had proofs/documentation everything. And that post also removed in no time. Maybe if there is a cache somewhere on web you guys can still see it. It was 4 5 days ago. It is a nightmare, instead of doing something they keep censoring.

I am starting to think that is is probably the most value for money to just go for the RTX 3090 if the 3080 Ti is going to end up hyper inflated like the 3080. In most cases, the RTX 3080 are sold by scalpers in my country is getting closer to the RTX 3090. At USD 3500 for this 3080 Ti, I won't even bother to think if I need to choose this or 3090.

They just straight up forgot about Chinglish and decided to put random letters in sequence for this one. When they finished, they figured it wasn't cool enough so they added an X for good measure.

3500. For a cut down hot headed dragon that is almost a year old and built on a crappy node.

The coolers on these models are extremely quiet - 10pts for that. Additional 10pts if my GamingX block fits it.

"to help NVIDIA better compete with the Radeon RX 6900 XT"

Most gamers don't buy the new cards at these ridiculous prices (or just can't get them) while NV is already better for mining this generation.
