As we could see already in 2021, in Asia scalpers are selling video cards 4-5 years ago at crazy prices. This, however, is not the only madness implemented by the smartest dealers in the East. In fact, on Amazon’s Japanese portal you can find mysterious boxes with 100 Dollars graphics cards.
Those who play video games like Fifa and Counter Strike: Global Offensive knows the problem of the After paying a certain fee, users can try their luck and try to open them to find rare items and maybe resell them, generating in such cases a profit not indifferent. It is clearly gambling, which is the subject of discussion for the involvement of children.
Well, the graphics card industry is also becoming the victim of a similar pattern in Japan. In the land of the Levant Sun, in fact, there are those who are proposing on Amazon mysterious boxes with a variety of modern and dated GPUs: just pay 100 Dollars and hope to find a high-end model, although the percentages are obviously low To be precise, there is a 2% declared chance of finding a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 or AMD Radeon RX 6000 video card. In other words, the more recent a GPU is, the more unlikely it is to be found.
The dealer declares to be ready to ship high-end video cards like RTX 3090, RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3060 Ti, RX 6900 XT, RX 6800, RX 6600 XT and so on in the original packaging still packaging However, in the case of older models (NVIDIA GeForce 9 series, AMD RX300 and GPU even 8-10 years ago) it is almost certain that the use by unknown third parties before this resale.
As if that were not enough, buyers will not be able to make the return of the card obtained once the purchase is made. At the time of writing the news the product is unavailable, and the price quoted is referred to the report of Wccftech. I wonder if anyone will fall for it when they return to Amazon!
Meanwhile, more bad news comes: in 2022, increases are expected on CPU and AMD GPU and NVIDIA.
