This appears in actuality to be the exact opposite of "a price a scalper would love". The card appears to be priced high enough to balance supply and demand, and eliminate scalping entirely. A smart move on Asus' part, and one which will only benefit consumers.

If the 6GB RTX2060 still sells for $740, then the 12GB RTX2060 for $480 pseudo-MSRP is still a steal for scalpers who are going to re-sell them for $750+. Also a great deal for miners who can use the extra RAM for dual-mining that they cannot do on 6GB.

This is pure insanity and insult to consumers. Selling a 4 year old GPU for like $150 over old MSRP is ludacris (I think might be even more than that). Sure gamers and consumers are bent backward with seemingly never ending mining craze and now supply shortage but this is just beyond anything I've seen. Like strapping a jet engine to an old horse. Instead of changing silicon to curb mining or adding a better defined products for each market segment they spend their resources on this piece of crap. Vote with your wallets folks, just hold off from buying this garbage.

Almost all of those are used cards. Heck, people are bidding $500 just for the box of a 2060 Super.
There are new and open-box cards for sale in the same price range. If you're willing to wait for overseas shipping, here's a brand new 2060 for $400:

As for the empty-box listing, one can only assume the buyer misread the listing, as just a few days earlier, the same box sold for only $15, rather than $500:
