    Those ones with EVGA preorders will be getting a relative bargain - prices seem to be going up....noticed the gaming X trio @ 1599 now up from $1469 on Umart and also up $50 on Centrecom.

    If they ever receive them and EVGA doesn't release a 'new' card with a SKU number that is different by 1

    Me, ordered a 3080 FTW3 (non ultra) at 11:40pm launch night - 87038x from PLE.

    Apparently they've been shipping these but not many - Spoke to a bloke on reddit who received his and I'm not too far off on the invoice #... Here's hoping February!

    I'm a part of a discord server that has a bot. Had around 10 opportunities to buy a 3080 but can't stomach the extra 250-400 over what I paid from PLE (and I actually want the FTW3 over the rest of them..)

    It would only be "bad" if people weren't buying or interested in the product.

    Yeah, even the PLE prices have gone up. I got the FTW Ultra for $1259 on launch night, it increased to $1379 a couple of months ago.

    It's crazy how AIBS haven't produced/distributed their models evenly, complete lottery as to which to order on launch night, I was 2300 orders after you but chose an Ultra and got it three weeks ago - that's madness. Of course thanks to Brexit my household goods are still stuck in Antwerp, so I haven't had a chance to even fire it up!

    It's impossible to know exact numbers but I'm guessing it's still a substantial number of people/orders yet to fulfill. Absolutely horrendous situation.

    Holey cow.. My order is 8725xx for a 3080XC3 black...from 7.00am launch night / day..
    Hate to think how much longer I'll be waiting.. (1 am at the second block)

    My fear, it that they will eventually discontinue the model.. --> refunds.. and force you to rejoin the end of a queue for a different card at a higher price...

    If you had ordered an FTW ultra at the time... you would have a card in your hands.

    For mine, I don't think they'll discontinue them but they'll just drip feed stock at 1% of the total, with the other 99% going to the ultra model.. And yes, would've chosen an ultra model anyway but the site kept crashing on me and the only page that loaded was the FTW3 (non ultra!)..

    For yours, I hope it comes mate - But I haven't seen many of those ones in the wild yet.. Best of luck!

    With the way things are going i'm never going to be able to afford a new GPU
    I would have been struggling at RRP let alone the inflated prices...
    Now if they're going up.. i'm stuffed !!

    GT1030 FTW !!!

    Maybe save more money and hang out for the next gen? Hopefully won't be such a monumental screwup as we have seen with the 3000 series.

    Like the recent GPU releases... or the next gen consoles... It hasn't been a good time for tech in the recent past. Hopefully things improve over the next few months.

    I like what you're saying.. but my Vive is sitting there doing nothing, and the GT1030 kinda limits the games I can play...

    Signs are pointing to no. Stock issues reportedly likely to last well into and maybe past Q2 this year.

    You can snag a 3070 at a decent price still. Definitely not a budget card to begin with, but worth the money all things considered.

    I'm very happy with my 3070 at sub $900. Hopefully ScorpZoomerTec does another run on them soon

    Well I was looking around the $1k mark, but was waiting for something a little faster than the 3070, but less than the 3080..
