MSI RTX 3080 eBay scalping by MSI subsidiary: Who’s to blame?

An "individual sales subsidiary working under MSI" was found selling brand new MSI RTX 3080 graphics cards on eBay this week. This is bad news for the individual sales subsidiary and MSI, as these brand new RTX 3080 graphics cards are supposed to be sold by MSI direct to consumers for their original MSRP. This situation is particularly unwelcome at this moment due to the extreme difficulty gamers have had in finding the NVIDIA graphics card hardware available for sale from either NVIDIA or their partner manufacturing brands on the open market.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 delayed to bolster stock ahead of launch day

It isn't exactly a secret that NVIDIA's roll out of its new RTX 30-series cards has been rough so far. The RTX 3080 sold out in the blink of an eye, and the RTX 3090 didn't fare a whole lot better despite its much higher price tag.
