I don’t know what they initially started out with, but by the time I ordered my FTW 3 and started monitoring, the XC3 SKU's started in the 40's to 80's, and the two FTW 3 SKU's started in the 30's to 40's if I remember correctly. Every 30 seconds or so when I would refresh my cart, I watched the quanities across the board drop until they were all finally gone. So yeah, they 100% had a LIVE, LIMITED inventory in their system for the back orders.

CDW allows the same, but I dont see EVGA in their list of stock.

The amazon.de ZOTAC pre-orders were in the 20000. Let that sink in if you thin joining a pre-order is a good idea. Yes amazon is canceling the majority, but that still shows you have no idea how long it will take.

I think Adorama is doing it correctly. I watched the sale open up and they closed it soon after. I really think they only sold what they had coming

How can you get Watchdog Legion free?

Oops, my bad. For some reason I was thinking that it was Watch Dogs 2 that was bundled with the 3080 on some sites. That’s what’s free on epic games this week, not Watch Dogs Legion.

Not saying they aren't. Just using amazon as the only example we have atm of how the pre-order game can be incredibly dangerous. What if they didn't cancel the orders? Now you have almost a year+ wait line for a gpu, which will result in hella angry customers.

For whatever reason Europe did pre-orders and backorder while basically only adorama did in the US. I know people in the US that got on as many lists as possible trying to import from Europe out of desperation. The thing goes both ways, EU might try US sites as well.

Basically I like the idea behind pre-ordering and whatnot, but not for things with high demand. Pre-order for kingpin or something like that, sure. It's low stock, enthusiast only target, and demand isn't insane. It would be manageable. But a general release, ehhh. Just give brick and mortar more stock and do the wait all night game.

Thanks for checking this.  Those seem like somewhat reasonable numbers from a standpoint of the qty's they would have on order, but it's hard to say how many actual cards will be made available to them and when.  For example, there are reports of various Microcenter locations having around 10 to 30 on hand for launch day each.  Adorama has only few physical locations but a fairly large online operation.

It's pretty obvious the Amazon back orders was a mistake.
I don't think that's the case with how Adorama did live, quantity limited back order.

Yeah I think it's pretty unlikely they would cancel orders, but people are at the mercy of the AIB's supply and the allocation to Adorama. Could be this week, could be a month or two.  Will also depend on the model of card.

I ordered a gaming x trio from the cdw . Still hoping to get my hands on an evga card sooner and cancel my order from cdw but I'm just glad to have my name on a list. Hopefully they aren't 6 months out for backorders.

This just gives everyone that got a order with them a plan B, plan A is to hope you can find a card before then

My plan A is to not get one.  I'm not going put any more effort into it.  If the order is not fulfilled by mid Oct, I'll just cancel it and wait for the mid-gen refresh.

The one I put on backorder is still there waiting and I'm going to sit here and wait with it. I'll check on it everyday and pet it and rub it and whisper sweet nothings to it. Because when it gets home I'm going to thrash it so hard it will be black and blue with some red here and there.

I'm not even going to bother them. If I find one before they ship I'll cancel. If not then hey, I have one on order. I get the idea that they will ship much sooner rather than later though, or they wouldn't have just accepted limited quantities of back orders.

If you have an Adorama account and ordered without being logged in, make sure you go back and link the order with your existing account.  Might be helpful if they start manually verifying orders.

How do you do that?  I figured it would be a good idea to do but didn't see a link button.  nvm think it did it automatically

Why isn't Evga doing this on their webstore? I would rather just pre-order directly from Evga. Come on Evga, that way your website doesn't crash when stock comes in due to the mad rush.
I almost had one checked out yesterday @ 6am PST, even went through the Paypal page and it failed on redirect. What a collosal waste of time with nothing to show. 




Adorama is a NYC camera store, just like B&H but a bit smaller, but they do a good amount of general consumer electronic.  Lots of pro and semi-pro customers.  As a retailer, I think they just have a different mentality than the EVGA store vs. Amazon vs. Newegg, etc.  They've been doing backorders and special orders for DECADES.

Last I heard B&H isn't a EVGA authorized seller anymore, presuming it always was prior.

Just  thought I'd mention I'm in for a FTW3 as well. I'll wait 4-6 weeks, then cancel.
 

 
Hoping we all get what we want folks.

As much as I am happy about securing any sort of EVGA card, I wish the card I backordered was an XC3 model due to shorter length. I want the Meshify C case, but trying to figure out how to fit an RTX 3080 with my Kraken Z73 360mm AIO. XC3 is 285mm like the Nvidia FE. I believe the FTW3 is 300mm.




Dunno if you're interested in slapping some magnets and uh... maybe a little super glue on your Meshify, but this is how I got FTW3 Clearance with a Kraken X73 
Had to slap some superglue on the magnets for me just because the adhesive that's on the strips wasn't wanting to hold. I figure I'll just acetone off the glue if I go back to a more stock configuration in the future.

Someone is saying the last 3 digits of your backorder number are your place in the Queue
 
And supposedly an Adorama rep said they have 6,000 cards coming. Got no link to that one.
