NVIDIA RTX 3080 cards got sold for thousands on eBay which made customers pissed

The sale of the Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card went live on September 17 at 9 AM ET and within a second the product got sold out from all the major online stores in the US. Very few people were able to confirm their order and most of the limited stock was bought out by the scalpers.

Next on eBay, the scalpers started to sell the card more than the actual price of the Graphics card. The sticker price of the RTX 3080 is $699 but on eBay, it was getting sold for the price range varying from $1,000-$2500. It was hard to tell whether the listings were legit or not. But one thing was sure that the scalpers were taking full advantage of the situation to make a fortune for themselves.

After seeing this the gamers got furious on Nvidia and blamed the company for the sloppy launch of the card. Gamers who wanted to buy the card showed their anger on Twitter by criticizing Nvidia. They blamed Nvidia for faking the card launch and didn’t sell anything at all. Here are some of the tweets where customers showed how pissed off they are –

On the same day in the afternoon, Nvidia finally responded to the situation with an acknowledgment that the early sale at 9 AM ET today was plagued by bots and scalpers. They stated that they are doing everything humanly possible, including manually reanalyzing orders so that they can sell the cards in the hands of legitimate customers. They also apologized to the customers for the morning’s experience.

The reaction from the customers was pretty obvious to the situation. Hoping that Nvidia fixes these issues quickly so that they can satisfy their customers.
