What do you guys think? Will the scalp bots be out in force or is this time going to be bots against bots...the good bot vs the scalp bots? I am in a double whammy... the strix 3090 is not out tomorrow due to delay, and I still have to go in person to my local hardware store and place my name in the queue....

EVGA site won't even display the home page...... Not sure if its related, but that is where I was going to get my 3090.

It won;t work under firefox, but I got it to respond using chrome.

Bots or not, for obvious reason, 3090 supply will be significantly more limited, so they will also sell out instantly.

If you have a decent local computer shop that will accept backorder, that would be the best option to avoid the circus. Just place your order and ignore everything. You get it, when you get it.

Yeah if the 3080 launch was a clusterfunk then its not like its going to get any better for the better binned and therefore lower quantity part...

If you are near Microcenter near St Davids they have 10 listed in stock. Cant reserve so get there early. Microcenters seems to be a good place to grab it one day one. Just gotta be fast.

It depends on the store. This article says people were camping outside for days, just like at an iphone launch. I bet the 3090 was even worse.

3080s still arent available outside of ebay and Nvidia has already said 3090 is limited quantities. So just imagine the 3080 launch, but much worse.

Video of people waiting in line for 3090 at a Microcenter (they got 26). It's actually kind of cool, reminds of the early Apple line videos. Mostly good line community stuff except for a jerk that showed up late and tried to line cut. The people in line made a check in - check out system so you could go eat/bathroom break, and even kept the list online...

I never realized but some people are just camping out waiting for more 3080's to come in. While he was recording, 5 more 3080's and 5 more 3090's showed up.

It's like a lan party. :D I would never put in this much effort to get any new tech though. The scalpers will go away eventually. There will be an oversupply of cards on ebay after a few months and they will drop the prices until the cards sell.

Hopefully all these moves from nvidia are because they have some notion AMD has a good bun in the oven. This feels like another Fermi moment for nvidia, and AMD has some advantages going in. Will mean nothing if their card is crap again though.

Just curious...why are people so desperate to be the first ones to have a new video card?

(AMD or Nvidia,doesn't matter in this case).

You're always paying full retail price,often hundreds more..just so you can say "I got this new fancy gaming video card first..."????

Totally confusing.

I'm personally waiting for a while after the RTX 3070 launches(its what I'm planning on buying..) to buy it.
