The first pictures of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti video cards are showing up on the web! After various delays, it's now rumored that this model will be introduced on May 31st. Actual product availability, or at least a couple of e-tailer listings that sell out instantaneously, are expected sometime in June.

The Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC

First up, there is a photo of the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC. VideoCardz dug this up via Moore's Law is Dead.

Allegedly, this model is already shipping to distribution centers so it probably won't take long until we hear more about how the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti performs -- and how it does in terms of cryptocurrency mining.

The RTX 3080 Ti has a GA102 GPU with 10240 CUDA cores and 12GB GDDR6X memory. The card pictures is the Gaming OC model, but there are no details about the clockspeeds.

MSI GeForce RTX 3080 TI SUPRIM X selling for $3,500 in UAE

Next we have photos of the MSI RTX 3080 TI SUPRIM X. Reddit FaisalKhatib claims this model is already being sold in the United Arab Emirates for the equivalent of about US$3,500. VideoCardz reports this isn't the first time stores in the UAE are selling cards weeks before the official embargo ends. The site also warns that there are no public drivers for this card yet.
What the owners of these unreleased cards need to have in mind though is that there are no public drivers for these cards yet. That said, even if they pull a trigger on this 3500 USD graphics card just to have it in advance, it may not necessarily mean they will be able to use it.
