GeForce RTX 3080 VENTUS 3X 10G out of production?

So, like many of you guys, I ordered a 3080.

I chose the one as in the title because it was the cheapest RTX3080.

I have ordered the card from day one, and I have been waiting ever since for my card to be delivered. 

I Checked weekly to see if there were new deliveries from MSI and a few came in.

But then I got this mail from the shop I ordered at (google translate from Dutch to English):

Thank you very much for your order.

Unfortunately, we have to inform you that the ordered product 292741 MSI GeForce RTX 3080 VENTUS 3X 10G Video Card is no longer available. The message from the manufacturer has reached us that this video card has gone out of production. As a result, we cannot fully deliver the order.

We will immediately prepare your order for shipment and cancel the item that is no longer available, so that your order is not delayed. The amount will be refunded within 3 working days via the payment method with which you paid your order.

At Megekko we work with automated systems where your complete order is automatically received, processed and prepared for shipment. Unfortunately, it is not possible to prepare your order with an alternative item. Of course we find it extremely annoying to have to mention this to you and of course we want to meet you in the shipping costs when placing a new order on our website for a possible alternative item. I would like to receive the new order number from you so that I can arrange this for you personally.

An alternative to this card is the OC variant: https://www.megekko.nl/product/1963/292742/Nvidia-Videokaarten/MSI-GeForce-RTX-3080-VENTUS-3X-10G-OC-Videokaart?s_o=1
We currently have about 150 pre-orders for this. You are free to place a new order and, for example, join this queue. No matter how annoying we find it, this decision does not come from Megekko itself and unfortunately we cannot give you priority when ordering another video card.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

So basically I have to order a new and other one, and have to get back in line. 

Man this has to be one of the worst graphic card launches ever? 

Also wondering if any other people got the same message from their store.

No it's still in production. (I know, suprising)

The ventus is still in production but only one variety instead of having a oc edition, non oc edition,... Basically so they can actually ship the cards instead of having to further divide their stock up. That and might as well do this and make some more money from the more expensive models by temporarily cancelling the lower end ones.

If I (basically pre)-ordered one, I should receive one none-the-less IMO (or just give me the OC version).
It makes no difference for MSI, it's just another BIOS on that card.

As it says in the e-mail, the manufacturer basically told the webshop they wont be selling/making the non-OC version. MSI simply saw a way to make more money as the demand is present anyway. I don't know if this is widespread under component manufacturers but I wouldn't be happy with MSI if i were you.

And well simply put you don't matter to msi. They don't care of losing a buyer when there are a heap more still waiting in line for a card and another heap that have yet to even be able to place their order.

Exactly the reason why I now have ordered a Gigabyte one.

It's pretty common to do so. Might as well make a quick buck by selling the higher end stuff and temporarily suspending the lower end production.

I question if this was a "launch" legally at least.
