VideoCardz reports that Razer, a big name in the gaming industry, is now accepting pre-orders for its gaming pre-releases, which feature two of NVIDIA’s most recent Ampere cards: the RTX 3080 Ti and the RTX 3070 Ti.
The information comes from the official Razer store page on Chinese online retailer TMall.
Each pre-built Razer comes with a very robust spec sheet; at least according to the images published in the article VideoCardz. There are four configurations available for pre-order, but they basically feature the same hardware.
The top of the line apparently has a top-of-the-line Ryzen 9 5900X and the aforementioned RTX 3080 Ti, which is expected to hit retail shelves (and be out of stock in seconds, probably) on June 3. The low-end will have either a Ryzen 5 5600X or a Ryzen 7 5800X, and the 3080 Ti’s little brother, the RTX 3070 Ti.
Prices for these Razer pre-built systems range from over $ 3,800 on the high end with the NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti and the Ryzen 9 5900X, to just over $ 2,000 with the RTX 3070 Ti and the Ryzen 5 5600X.

Razer pre-built with an RTX 3080 Ti? Is it still real?
Retail system designers like Razer are no strangers to getting NVIDIA’s early GPU inventory as it is an accepted business model. But the fact that it’s still not released on Razer’s official site raises a few eyebrows.
A glaring error in the datasheet is the erroneous claim that NVIDIA equipped the 3080 Ti with 10GB of VRAM, when it is supposed to be 12GB. But it’s also a common mistake that system builders have. do in their product descriptions. So even a prebuilt Razer is likely to have flawed details in one way or another.
Maybe a pre-built gaming PC is a good idea right now
There is an ongoing GPU shortage. All PC enthusiasts know this today. Graphics cards from NVIDIA and AMD are nearly unobtainable, and if stocks go up, prices are scorched.
But since you can’t get a GPU on your own without paying an insane amount of money, maybe a prebuilt Razer like this makes more sense than building your own system.
Prebuilt systems have always had a bad reputation in the PC gaming community. And they’re right to be wary, because system designers have been known to cut corners where they’re not supposed to. That’s why many pre-built computers come with extremely lopsided specs (that is, they have an NVIDIA RTX graphics card, a dual-core processor, and a single 8GB RAM stick).
But with the current situation, the only way not to spend too much money on a gaming PC is to buy a pre-built one. That’s it.
Storefront system designers like Razer always get graphics cards at or near MSRP. This is how the system works. So if you absolutely need something to play these days, you’ll actually save a lot more money than you think by going for a pre-built than building your own computer in a time of scarcity of money. fleas.
Plus, it’s always cool to get a single, unified warranty policy in the event that your new gaming PC crashes for any reason. With this, you don’t have to worry about individual and vastly different warranty covers for each part.
