The retailer has two cards in stock that can (apparently) already be ordered. The GAMING Z TRIO model is listed at 1699 EUR while SUPRIM X is available at 1799 EUR. This is 300 EUR and 400 EUR more respectively than the 10GB models listed by Mindfactory (although not from the same manufacturer because the retailer has no MSI 10GB card in stock):
- MSI RTX 3080 12GB GAMING Z TRIO: 1699 EUR
- MSI RTX 3080 12GB SUPRIM X: 1799 EUR
- GIGABYTE RTX 3080 10GB GAMING OC/VISION OC: 1399 EUR
The MSRP of the new 12GB version of the RTX 3080 SKU is not yet known. In fact, there is no confirmation that NVIDIA will even list the price on its website or communicate it to the media, as there won’t be a Founders Edition model. The upgraded RTX 3080 cards will only be available through board partners, who are reluctant to speak bout their inflated GPU pricing.

Update: These cards are also listed in France at nearly the same price:
