NVIDIA RTX 3050 might cost around 453 USD in Peru
XanxoGaming is reporting on a bundle featuring yet unreleased RTX 3050 graphics card.
Undisclosed Peruvian retailer is allegedly preparing an RTX 3050 graphics card for 506 USD. This bundle includes Palit RTX 3050 DUAL OC graphics card and Geil Orion DDR4-3200 8GB memory. With no effort we can conclude that the graphics card alone costs 453 USD because the memory is listed by the same retailer at 53 USD, reports XanxoGaming.
The reason why Peruvian retailers are using US dollars instead of Soles is that the national currency rate is fluctuating a lot, so they prefer to use US dollars instead.
With this in mind, we have the first retailer pricing of the upcoming entry-level RTX 30 graphics card listed in US dollars. Once compared with NVIDIA’s RTX 3050 MSRP, it becomes apparent that the PALIT DUAL RTX 3050 is being sold at with 82% higher price. Of course, this is a custom model with factory overclocking, yet it is still a lot higher than it should be.
Starting next week, distributors in Europe and US should confirm the retail price in those regions. For now, a vast majority of retailers with RTX 3050 graphics cards on their websites either list the price as ‘to be confirmed’ or do not list any information at all.

Meanwhile, we also have 3rd party sellers on Newegg Marketplace already offering RTX 3050 cards for as much as 699 USD. Those cards are not sold by Newegg and ship from overseas. This might be placeholder pricing and stock information may be incorrect. Newegg does not list any RTX 3050 cards with their own prices yet.
