Razer pre-built system with RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti now on presale
Apparently, the official Razer store on Chinese Tmall is already taking preorders on its desktop systems equipped with RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards.
On Tmall systems with RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti are now available for preorder. The offer isn’t quite straightforward and the description does not always appear to match the specifications. It looks like the product page has been updated partially. In any case, there seem to be RTX 3080 Ti 12GB and RTX 3070 Ti 8GB options listed, which would match rumored specs of these new upcoming Ampere graphics cards.
The first system is offered in many configurations, with up to 8-core Ryzen 9 5900X CPU, X570 motherboard, and RTX 3090 graphics. The RTX 3080 Ti appears to be an option for the premium and quite an expensive system, which has a starting price of 22,999 RMB (around 3,500 USD). A configuration with an X570 motherboard costs 3,885 USD. For comparison, a system equipped with a slightly better ASUS ROG STRIX motherboard and RTX 3090 graphics is listed at 39,999 RBM (6,217 USD). In other words, there is a 2,331 USD difference between RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Ti build.
Meanwhile, the two configurations with RTX 3070 Ti graphics can be preordered for around 2,100 USD with Ryzen 5 5600X and for 2,331 USD with Ryzen 7 5800X.
There are some obvious mistakes in the description, which might be a result of copy-posting the RTX 3080 pre-built page. For instance, in some places, the RTX 3080 Ti is listed with 10GB which is obviously incorrect. However, it is fact that most custom models of RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3080 will look identical because these cards are to feature (more or less) the same board design and similar power requirements. So naturally, we will be seeing many OEMs listing wrong specs,
The listing does not appear to be a mistake, both systems are advertised in multiple places in the official Razer China store on Tmall:
