Overseas retailer Scan Computers made some waves with this week’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launch. At a time where supply cannot even begin to meet demand, it didn’t price gouge the new GPU. This is a rare practice in recent times, as some retailers have increased prices over MSRP significantly. Scan has also committed to not taking pre-orders for the new GPU to avoid cancellations. It is also one of the few to have informed the public about incoming stock of GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards.

Rather than take pre-orders for unsecured stock, or inflating their prices to ludicrous degrees, Scan has made the bold decision to sell their RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards at MSRP. Yeah, that is what we have to consider a “bold” move these days… In a statement on their “Nvidia 30 Series status” page, Scan UK noted that “We feel it [is] unfair that people are selling the cards in marketplaces at unrealistic prices.”

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
