I would also like those people that supposedly got cards to come forward. Yep sounding like a lunatic right now ha ha, merely curious and skeptical is all. And Nvidia it's official apology is like listening to your full of bullsh*t manager; a lot of blah blah blah.

It wasn't a paper launch from my perspective; they said including their Dutch site: available from 17 September. It's not.
In fairness, if none of our regulars has any, then they're not going to come forward on OC3D. I've seen people on Facebook and other forums have successfully ordered one.

The Samsung 8nn node seems weak, if RDNA2 comes on at 1.6 of RDNA then we might have a scrap on our hands
But it won't be $700. The 3090 is not THAT much bigger of a die than the 3080, yet it's twice the price. I imagine a large portion of that cost is going to the vast amount of expensive VRAM. The 20GB 3080 is likely going to be $800 or even $850. You won't see the performance benefit of that extra cash in many instances. A lot of people won't deem it necessary, especially if they're at 1440p where 10GB is more than enough.

What happened to getting Big Navi and not supporting Nvidia?

Its Dice. Just give up

He will bounce between AMD and Nvidia about 10 times before next gen comes.

Just an FYI - I know Gigabyte sold all 500 cards in the UK within minutes

500 cards from one brand is not a paper launch

There was also a retailer in Austin Texas that had 85 cards to sell, and over 300 in queue standing outside to pick them up.

It may as well be. You hype up millions of people then send out 500 cards.

Still, I got a nice cheap 2080Ti. So I am not complaining.

I'm not complaining about low stock no. LOL I didn't want one

I am complaining though because even though I didn't want one it's caused a massive pain in my ass !

I ordered a new res and HDD last Friday. Four days later I found out they didn't have the HDD in stock. OK please refund me and send the res, as I am waiting at my mother's for it.

It didn't ship. And due to the crappy 3080 it's cost me another two friggin days. I couldn't even contact them yesterday because their site collapsed. So now I am stuck here all weekend over a bloody res.

*mumble grumble moan complain*

It's expected on any launch, they did sell out fast on Nvidia's site for many reasons, but all the websites were lagging and crashing demand was so high that even if they had a normal amount it was never going to be enough. Demand is so high they had no chance of filling demand even if they had twice as much, but as always it will calm down and supply will go up.

The 3070 thou now that will be an even quicker seller than the others that is the card most people are really hype'd over, can see these cards selling like this for months tbh.

I didn't want to buy one but even just looking on sites was an issue all i wanted to do was check prices, but some pics here and there i saw prices on some a lot higher than the £649 the tuf GPU thou seemed to be the cheapest and it's actually a good buy at it's price.
