LUL people bought 3080's for nearly $1,000 more than we bought our 3090's for.... smh... that's on them for being desperate tbh.
Scalping wouldn't be a thing if idiots didn't pay 2x the amount just because they don't want to wait.

Law should intervene to limit the prices you are allowed to charge for gpu, because next generation it is going to be nVidia and AMD inflating the price in the first place

How are they able to bulk buy all those GPUs and how much are they paying per GPU.

i just saw someone post a picture on offerup with like 20 msi gaming trio 3080's. Sometimes on amazon they forget to put a quantity limit and these people hit big. This seller seems like they got connections though.

This just makes you sad that it becomes impossible just to land one card...

The saddest part is that all we can do is patiently wait when they get their hands on so many cards...

I refuse to pay a scalper a price, Id rather go without but unfortunately there is always someone else out there willing to pay the premiums. I would laugh if supply suddenly caught up and they were stuck with a bunch of cards they couldn't move.

Nothing will stop the scalping, unless people stop buying them or enough product gets manufacturered to satisfy demand. Doubt either of those happening any time soon.

Totally agree... I understand prices rising when demand is high and supply is low. But not giving in to individuals just trying to profit of someone else

The only way to compete against scalpers is to join them at their game and get yourself multiple bots. Simple as that!

Yea this whole system is rigged, those who have bots make thousands and those who don't, will just sit here and cry. Sadly I'm not on the good end of the stick.

It's surprising how much people are willing to pay currently when they all complained that 2080 ti cost too much at msrp

There should definitely be legislation be put in place against scalpers and people who hoard and scalp items. It's similar to people who were hoarding and scalping masks and gloves during the beginning of the pandemic. Obviously GPUs and medical items are not the same but still, it's outrageous how capitalism creates this system.

Also, how is Walmart selling way above MSRP? I see they have 3080 FTW3 at 1k and AMD 5900X at 700 dollars?

That's really insane. I think that Amazon, Best Buy, and others should do something to stop scalpers. I have been for months trying to buy a GPU for my new computers, and it has become an impossible task.


Yes extremely frustrating indeed.

It's all supply and demand.  When anyone (including companies) can charge a premium for stuff,  they will. Only until the shortage of semiconductors is resolved will things go back to somewhat normal.

aka_STEVE_b
Found this little gem on EBAY today.  A store that is scalping EVGA cards . Just recently shows (75x) 3060's  & (15) 3080's .
STRATOSMICRO   - 
 

 - $ 888.88  for a 3060
 

 - $ 2199.00  for the 3080
 
Despicable .  How has this  'small' store gotten over 100 cards recently to scalp ??  
 


I think you can also claim to be a business.

It'd be fairly easy to get a business / license tag in most cities assuming you do the right paperwork (hell in some states / cities, a tag can cost less than $150), and from there you can contact EVGA as a "legitimate company" wanting to buy some "inventory". I doubt EVGA would double check if they're legit or not, and even then, they can easily claim that they are since they got the tag.

I find these kinds of situations are both saddening and educational.
Saddening because they exacerbate the shortage by pulling cards away from retailers.
At the same time, it shows the level of sophistication that is often behind scalping rings. While you and I cannot get a hold of a single card, others will intercept distribution networks, make deals with certified distributors, and of course utilize botting services to acquire vast quantities.  This result is evident in the opening post.
What is funny is they morally justify this behavior as a “service” which enables people to purchase cards that would otherwise be too hard to find.  Of course the ridiculous markup is their “service fee.”  I understand the economics behind it, but I still consider it morally facetious.
