We've already seen crazy pricing on NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards that is landing between $1300 through to a huge $2250 -- but that doesn't hold up against the stupidly high $3500 pricing of the RTX 3080 Ti in the UAE.
MSI's custom GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X graphics card is being sold at a UAE-based retailer for $3500, which I cannot even begin to comprehend. $1300 was bad enough, but $2250 was just insane... and now we're talking about $3500. That should be the entire cost of a kick ass new gaming PC **and** a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.
Reddit user FaisalKhatib saw the new MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X graphics card at a retailer in the UAE, priced at $3500 and available to buy right now a month out from it being released, and available even before NVIDIA itself has confirmed the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in the first place.
