People are already reselling Nvidia RTX 3060s for over $1,000

The Nvidia RTX 3060 isn’t set to be officially released until later this week—February 25 at 9 AM Pacific Time, to be exact. Yet the cards have been spotted in online stores all across the map early, and it wouldn’t be surprising to hear people are rushing to snatch them up.

According to VideoCardz, a seller named Artem had three Gigabyte Eagle RTX 3060 cards on sale in Belarusian store Onliner over the weekend. The sale page has since disappeared, now throwing up a 404, but I’d bet these cards sold for their listing price of $1,080 each (in USD equivalent cash). That is, if they weren’t pulled beforehand.

What’s really funny about this listing is that these sale images clearly show the serial numbers. That makes it a doddle for Gigabyte to trace the cards and find out exactly where they slipped off the truck. Perhaps it’s only a matter of time before someone gets the sack.

People are falling over themselves to get these cards, it would seem, despite the supposedly unhackable mining limiters Nvidia has decided to impose. I’m sure a few have taken this as an open invitation to try to disable it. Though it’s still entirely possible to make a little profit crypto mining with these lower-end cards, even with the half hash rate limit.
