NVIDIA No Longer Lists GeForce RTX 3000 Series Founders Edition Cards in Europe

According to the findings of Igor's Lab and Andreas Schilling from HardwareLuxx, we have information that NVIDIA is no longer listing its GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards in the Europe shop. NVIDIA website has a special section where the company lists all the available cards, and it represented a way to get the newest 3000 series Ampere graphics cards at MSRP. However, that seems to no longer be the case. NVIDIA has removed all the Ampere Founders Edition graphics cards from the European stores with Poland representing an exception with RTX 3090 listed. The company continues to list these cards at the US store version, however, the links are all redirecting to BestBuy, in the same manner as before. It is not clear why NVIDIA is no longer listing Founders Edition cards in Europe, and we are waiting for more information to report on. Below you can check out the Poland store, UK store, and US store, in order.

Update 13:10 UTC: NVIDIA did not remove these cards manually, but it was a technical error. Cards are now listed again on the storefronts.

It's also weird, since all posts mentioning said removal on r/Nvidia, got deleted. Seems like something is going on, but what?

I think the cost have gone up, so Nvidia decided to stop producing these cards and let the AIB produce and decide prices on their own.

Nvidia stopped trying to keep card pricing reasonable, and if they cant list cards for MSRP they must be getting kick-backs from the scalpers! #tinhat?

Prices aside, Nvidia did stop selling FE cards (at least directly) after some months in previous generations as well.
In a more optimistic note - maybe there is a mid-generation update incoming soon, like Super cards?

No they are not, The card in this Build is not FE

And buy the way the price listed for 3080 is fake too. it is listed as 719 but when you click for options 2 pc builds come up, the cheapest one sold for 2750 euros. In this one if you remove the 3080 from that case the remaining parts don't cost more that 1200 euros. so that is almost 1500 euros for the 3080, more than double of the listed 719 euro price. !!!!

Yeah and if you click the green button to find sellers, this is what you get...

They're effectively not selling the cards at all, I think, these are just a few leftovers / deliberately priced systems to ride the scalper wave.

Buy prebuilt they say, save money they say:

Lowest - €2770.
I wonder if they use blowers in those Alienware's.

Edit.
Nope, they dont:

Note: I see that this was a technical issue. But I work in the industry (Won't clarify specifically) But I would expect to see this happen soon anyway for real. As I just heard a few weeks ago from a couple of the AIB partners that supers and Ti's are on the way this year. In response to AMD's offerings.
A little discouraging to me since neither AMD nor NVidia can keep these cards in stock anyway. But just know they are coming.

Same as yesterday. They magically say it is available, but hitting the buy button does nothing more than saying 'Redirecting to our fulfillment partner.' but never actually redirecting. I'll bet they have some serious problems on their website and trying to fix them on the live version of the site.

Hitting the button brings up some errors on the web console:

It's strange, it seems that the only GEFORCE card available is the "out of stock" edition. Hmmm... How peculiar...

THe idea behind prebuild sales is to keep the cards out of the hands of scalpers, Microcenter did somthing similair where you could not get the card if you did not also buy some other things related to a new pc build.
