Stock for NVIDIA's latest RTX 30-series graphics cards has been a nightmare for customers across the world, with demand far outstripping supply. This opened up a proverbial can of worms, with scalpers taking to the world wide web, casting their own nets in taking advantage of not only the pandemic (and peoples' refuge in gaming in these uncertain times), but also of said unmet demand. So it has to be nothing short of a Christmas miracle that 500,000 NVIDIA RTX 3080 graphics cards have just been found in an unmarked shipping container in South Korea. The container wasn't registered in the port authority, and was therefore left unopened and unprocessed.

The graphics cards were stored in the container absent of any proper documentation by Samsung, as early as August of this year. Jeff Fisher, vice president of NVIDIA and head of the GeForce division, said in a statement to the company's shareholders that "We've been asking Samsung for this shipment for months. They told us that she had already left the factory, but then they did not present us with any document proving that she had reached her destination". These newfound graphics cards will now be correctly processed and put into the channel.

My basic knowledge of it all is that ti version of a card is a better more powerful version of it.
That's pretty much the long and the short of it. The "Ti" stands for "Titanium", which is just a marketing buzzword. Typically they'll bump up the RAM and include more Shader Processors on the Ti version of a card, making it more powerful and faster (and cost more in the process).

My rule of thumb when doing a build has always been to go with last year's Ti model (barring MAJOR jumps in tech between generations) as it'll be down to a decent price and you won't be sacrificing that much bang for your buck over the current generation of video cards.
