All Japan RTX 3050 graphics cards sold for $ 400 in a matter of hours
Nvidia unveiled its latest cost-effective graphics card, the RTX 3050, on January 15, 2014; This economical graphics card was introduced for desktop enthusiasts and is equipped with all the benefits of Nvidia’s high-end cards such as beam momentum, artificial intelligence and GPU accelerators. Nvidia had priced the graphics card at $ 249 when it introduced it.
Galakuro, a graphics card supplier affiliated with Taiwanese company Galax, began selling the RTX 3050 graphics card in Japan on Friday, January 15; But the Galakuro, despite the low cost of the graphics card, offered a higher price than Nvidia for the sale.
The RTX 3050 is priced at $ 249 in the US, which is a fairly high price for economics, but still up from the $ 400 (50,138 Japanese yen) Gala announced by Galakuro (actually $ 439 with tax) It was an exorbitant price to sell this graphics card on Amazon Japan; However, according to Tomshardware, the entire stock of the RTX 3050 was sold out within hours.
The RTX 3050 is not a fancy graphics card with a very high clock speed or an advanced cooling system; This is Nvidia, a regular and inexpensive graphics card that uses a relatively expensive GA106-150 graphics processor with 2,560 CUDA cores, eight gigabytes of GDDR6 memory with a 128-bit memory interface, and is cooled by a simple cooling system.
The RTX 3050, like other RTX 30 series graphics cards, has four DisplayPort 1.4 outputs for the display and one HDMI 2.1 port.
It should be noted that the price of graphics cards in general has increased somewhat due to the crisis of shortage of semiconductor components in general, and a price increase compared to the factory price of such products seems reasonable, on the other hand, paying $ 400 tax-free to the Japanese , Because hardware is always sold at a relatively high price in this country.
With Galakuro priced for Nvidia’s RTX 3050 graphics card in Japan, it is unlikely that this product will be available at the same Nvidia $ 249 factory price in the US and elsewhere. What is your estimate for the US RTX 3050 launch price?
