September 17th is a major day for all(most of ) the pc users, people have been hungrily anticipating, and yes, it is the release-day of RTX 3080, but things turn out unexpected to everybody, the RTX 3080 in every website sold out within a minute.
Most of the people who are looking for buying an RTX 3080 woke up early and keep refreshing the page of the website, but once it reaches the 6 a.m., most of the people were stuck at the reloading the page, and when they finally get there, the card is already sold out. My first reaction is scalpers because I used to be playing with a group of people who are cop shoes that are hype and resell them, and many of them use a bot to cop it because it is basically impossible to buy it manually.
This strategy than used to cop the RTX 3080 and that is why all the cards are been sold out so quickly. Right after the release, the scalpers who got the order confirmed start to list the RTX 3080 on eBay for double the price($1400). This new release supposes to make everybody happy, but now it becomes frustrating, and everybody was disappointed. Due to the availability of RTX 3080, and its price in the market, the price for RTX 2080ti went up again.
