The real chances of buying a GeForce RTX 3080 are close to zero

It seems that the shortage of GeForce RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 graphics cards may last even longer than expected in Nvidia itself. The Danish retailer said how bad things are with the fulfillment of orders. In short – everything is very, very sad. The tables presented by the Proshop store (and this is not the largest and most popular platform, if considered in a global context), show how bad everything is. For example, out of 3435 units of GeForce RTX 3080 from different manufacturers, they shipped to the store only 344 pieces, ie about 10% of the total volume of previous orders. At the same time, so that there was no shortage at all and to have “live” video cards, the store invited different models with a total of 8400 pieces. It turns out that video card manufacturers must increase supplies by an average of 25 times so that there is no shortage.

The situation with the more expensive RTX 3090 is better, of course, but not much: out of 283 previous orders, 78 – 27% of the total. In this case, to have a comfortable amount of inventory, the retailer invited the manufacturers of 1905 RTX 3090. So in the case of RTX 3090 in order to fulfill the retailer’s order, the manufacturers of this video card must increase supplies by the same 25 times. At the same time, manufacturers are not yet ready to put even the volume of pre-ordered video cards, as indicated by the column Underway in the table.

The situation with the GeForce RTX 3070 may be even worse, because it is cheaper than the RTX 3080, but at the same time provides a solid increase in performance compared to the previous generation model. The volume of previous orders RTX 3070 is not shown in the table, but it will definitely be not less than the volume of RTX 3090. At the moment, the store has received only 25 graphics cards in the line, a little more than 200 – on the road. At the same time, Proshop is counting on a stock of 3580 RTX 3070.
