Today, sales of the GeForce RTX 3050 video card, the most affordable model of the Ampere line, which many users have high hopes for, will start. The Videocardz resource has already published the prices of a dozen GeForce RTX 3050 models for the US market, and it should be noted that five models will be offered at once in local retail at the manufacturer’s recommended price.
Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, EVGA, and Zotac will offer at least one $250 model each. The question, of course, is the amount of inventory, but in the US, some will still be able to buy the GeForce RTX 3050 at the manufacturer’s recommended price. But then – the transition to the range of 350-370 dollars. And Asus has the most expensive graphics cards: the Dual model is priced at $440, the top version of the ROG Strix line will be sold for $490.
According to the British resource Overclock3D, the first batch of GeForce RTX 3050 for the whole of the UK has … at least 1000 pieces. And this, of course, is very little. Therefore, the issue of volumes of the GeForce RTX 3050 in retail at the start of sales is not at all idle. Apparently, the first batches will be sold out in a matter of minutes. In the UK, the GeForce RTX 3050 starts at £240 or $320.
