NVIDIA’s new Titanium-grade GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards won’t be launching until the first and second week of June, but retailers have wasted no time in shocking enthusiasts with what will clearly be outrageous pricing. One of these is Pakistan’s Thrift.pk, which recently notified customers that it is taking preorders for Palit’s custom GameRock and GamingPro GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti models for 310,000 PKR (around $2,000) and 420,000 PKR (around $2,700), respectively. NVIDIA is expected to announce the pricing for its new GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards on May 31.
The prices mentioned above are only for the base models and premium variants are said to be priced even higher. The pricing puts the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti at almost twice the MSRP of the RTX 3090 while for the price of the RTX 3070 Ti, you can get almost four RTX 3070 (non-TI) graphics cards (if they were available at MSRP). The retailer states that the stock is limited and delivery will be made in the first week of June for the RTX 3080 Ti and 2nd week of June for the RTX 3070 Ti.
