Since last week, sellers from the various stores have been offering everyone to pre-order non-reference Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards, whose images were leaked recently. Now they are joined by Silicon Valley Computers, located in Saudi Arabia.
GIGABYTE RTX 3060 Ti OC Edition RGB and GIGABYTE EAGLE RGB GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards are now available for purchase in one of the Saudi Arabi store. There are no photos from different angles, but there are some specs of the GPU: 4864 CUDA-cores, 8 GB of GDDR6 video memory operating at a speed of 14 Gbps, and a 256-bit bus, which gives memory bandwidth up to 448 GB/s. These specs completely repeat the characteristics previously seen in GPU-Z.
At the moment, the store offers to purchase video cards of GIGABYTE RTX 3060 Ti OC Edition RGB and GIGABYTE EAGLE RGB GeForce RTX 3060 Ti at a price of 3,799 and 3,699 Saudi Riyal respectively, or almost $1000 US after conversion. By the way, in the same store, the cost of the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 OC Edition RGB video card is 4,799 Saudi Riyal.

In any case, you do not need to be alarmed, as such a high cost is due to the fact that the average income in Saudi Arabia is at the level of 10 thousand Saudi Riyal, or almost $3000. In fact, as soon as the video cards start appearing in our stores, they will be much adequate and adjusted for our currency. According to rumors, these cards could be between $349 for the reference model and $399 for the custom models.
The official release date for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards was pointed to 17 November, but later it was changed to December 2, 2020.
