Even in an industry where product launches always face shortages in the availability required by the public, the launch of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 graphics cards still managed to surprise gamers around the world with a combination of supplies. very small and exorbitant demand from buyers. Unfortunately, in the last few hours the announcement from the American company has arrived which has confirmed that the lack of units will continue until the end of the year and will probably continue until the first months of 2021.
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said during a Q&A session with the press that the demand far exceeded his company’s expectations and that the production of new graphics cards will surely run out of stock of the company’s components. for this year. The huge demand for RTX Series 30 products will manage to give Nvidia a big boost in revenue, but at the same time fail to provide enough units for all applicants. Unfortunately, the launch of the GeForce RTX 3080 and, albeit to a lesser extent, RTX 3090 cards were considered a complete failure.by most enthusiasts, with limited stocks that were immediately bought by numerous reseller bots who quadrupled their prices on eBay and Amazon .
At the moment, therefore, the US company confirms that the problem is due to the very high demand, not a production problem, and which it hopes to solve in the first months of 2021. This lack of the highly anticipated RTX 3080 has shifted the attention of the general public towards the GeForce RTX 3070 GPUs , which will be released later this month, precisely on October 29th, after being postponed for two weeks from the original release date scheduled for the 15th of the same month, hoping that the unpleasant situation that occurred with the others will not be repeated. two 3000 series graphics cards.
