    Guys Nvidia generated so much hype and taken a lot of us too be morons. At least they dropped the prices. But what good is that if they don’t have any cards to sell?

    Wow, those prices are rough, prices are varying so wildly from store to store this time, usually they seem pretty uniform.

    If any of us owned a computer retailer, our prices would be the bloody same. Supply & demand..... one of the perks of low supply is you can stack on bigger margins and make a nicer profit.

    But we do easily forget how razor thin retailers margins are the rest of the year when theres no launch products around. I'm not excusing the price gouging, but its the free market we live in.

    No, they already stated on FB that it's a game of CS:GO on the 12 technicians new 3080 FE rigs. Whoever wins the match gets to pick the winners.

    Interesting how Apple are able to announce a product and have it ready for pretty much anyone who wants it within a month. NVidia should probably take a leaf out of their product scheduling and launches. Just give yourself another 4 weeks if that’s what it takes to build a stockpile and don’t announce it until you have more than 11 cards for ALL OF NEW YORK CITY.

    I think they rushed the launch to beat AMD. I have a feeling AMD will have much more stock - I mean some tech youtubers already have a RX6900, and the announcement is a month away...

    Jay2Centz was talking about it. Photos of the cooler are circulating around - there's cards out in the wild. Nvidia FE didn't show until a week before announcement.

    Yeah a lot about this launch (low RRP, early launch etc) feels like nervousness about AMD. Interesting times, be fun to see if it is borne out.

    Oh yeah i saw those photos of the card but those pics could be from anyone anywhere, (probably from AMD themselves tbh) to generate some hype. It's certainly no coincidence jay got them the day before ther 3080 launch.......

    I would be surprised if anyone had one.

    AMD I suspect will have supply issues too. They can't make mobile chips fast enough, apu's are oem only and ryzen 4000 is launching first.
    Then there are the consoles.

    The wheels must be smoking big time at TSMC.
