Nvidia 3080 - sold out everywhere

Welp. That didn't take long - the new Nvidia 3080 graphics card instantly sold out everywhere online.

Our Microcenter states it will have 25 in stock for in-person purchase only, but I imagine there is already a long line hours before opening outside of the store and that is not worth my time.

I was looking to buy one for my son (for Christmas) but will probably have to keep checking stock daily to try and score one. Not going to pay a scalper double the price either.

On a somewhat related note, while I am not a console gamer I heard the Playstation 5 went on sale this morning too and it has been a fiasco.

Not sure why this always happens....

The PS5 just announced pricing and preorder info, it did not go on sale.

The 3080 is gonna be hard to get for a couple months just like any of Nvidias card launches. Once the 3070 and 3090 hit shelves it will slowly be easier to find a 3080. You will probably be able to find on before xmas if you keep an eye on stock at places like Microcenter or Newegg

Thanks for the clarification on the PS5 - I was recalling reading this article:

Everything was a shit show, ps5, xbox, nvidia. Luckily I don't give a flying fuck about any of them. I might pick up the 3070 when you can buy one for retail, but in no hurry.

Same here. I was actually ready for both the 3080 and 3090 launches but the websites all crashed and by the time they came back up they were all sold out. Also not in any rush so I'll wait until the hype dies. I was planning on using them with the new build with AMD's newer Ryzens so I have time.

Yeah I have a 970Ti right now so basically any of the cards would be an upgrade for me, but I don't game enough to deal with the hype. I also read some stuff about some of them having issues due to some chips some manufacturers were using. I guess they are lower quality chips or something. So probably best to let them sort that out.

Bots and the scalpers behind those bots are a plague upon us and there must be something done to stop them.

I'm still using my 1080 Ti but my QHD 144hz gsync monitor would benefit from those higher frame rates of a 3080.

Don't think I'll be able to upgrade anytime soon though.

I really want to do a whole new build but not even going to consider it until the pricing/availability stabilizes. Would also like to know more about Ryzen 3.

On another level, demand will be high due to crypto mining farms, as the 3080 will boost that hardcore.

Bots are literally taking over any big new hw releases.

What does it matter what nationality they are? They are $#%^&@! scalpers either way.

Seriously Adeel, wft man, I get you want to make some money, but how about not taking advantage of people by basically hoarding. How is this any better than the covidiots buying all the toilet paper? Shame on all of the scalpers.

If I buy them from you, will you shove them up your rear end?
