Yep, I didn't really try that hard to begin with but my Titan xP still plays everything fine.  So I'm waiting for Big Navi and Black Friday and see how stock looks then, and who is actually on top.

I would guess that the Demand is 10X times the supply right now.
 
And don't buy on Ebay. Let the scalpers die in a fire with Graphics Cards that no one will buy.

Yup. I'd guess demand is significantly more than 10 x supply, particularly on launch day, but that will drop as the initial rush to be first and have the newest and best fades away, and people realize they have other priorities (certainly as far as the 3090 goes), or the desire just isn't as strong and maybe the GPU they already have is pretty good anyway.
 
Agree 100% - don't feed the scalpers, it only encourages them.
 
I would like to see Amazon, Newegg, EBay etc. put maybe a 10-15% maximum markup on items in this sort of situation.

I sort of gave up camping out online.  I bought a new EVGA 2080 Super FTW3 and put in for the step up this week.  Many people that signed up for step up at launch are saying they have yet to get past step 1.  Very discouraging.  Likely, from what I have heard, a minimum 6 month wait so March or April.  Now I am debating on leaving it sealed in the box or putting in in my PC.. boxing my 4 month old ASUS 2070 Super Advanced OC and using it.  I guess I am sort of holding out hope of getting a 3080 within my return period for the 2080 and just returning it and getting out of step up.   I have 24 days before I am committed completely to setup.
 
SO ... I am slowly heading toward a point where I have to commit to:  1. Step up program, stop looking for a 3080 card, and use the 2080 for maybe a quarter to a half of a year until I get the 3080.   2.  Return the 2080 sealed, unused.  Get my refund.  Buy a new AMD card when they come out, if they are better or similar to a 3080 and available.
 
I have around 20 days to make the decision.  So 10/20...  I decide.  An email by then getting to step 2 would make the decision for me.  And the 3rd option.. get lucky on a Tuf, EVGA FTW3, or Strix before then online and just return the 2080 sealed.
 
What I think is going to happen:  I will end up doing option 1.. and sometime in April or May get the 3080 FTW3.  Most likely I will be annoyed.

For now. But prices on eBay are starting to fall. Once supply catches up it won’t be so bad hopefully.

Cancelled my preorder for the FTW 3 as it is showing Jan '21 and no doubt will slip even more.. I am happy to keep using my 1080 for now.. until stock is readly available.. and then maybe the 20Gb model will be out.

Re: Anyone else give up? 2020/10/01 01:33:18 (permalink)
October's supposed to be THE month, and with a seemingly strong AMD launch around the corner, the 3070 launching, and many people already getting cards, giving up, or settling for cheap 20xx cards, it should get progressively easier to find a 3080 now that supply is ramping up...
 
Scalpers are probably going to call it quits this month too since they'll simply be too many options and questionable surges in stock that will make cornering the market risky, and cornering the market is something they desperately depend on to rip people off.

I gave up too. Not on getting a card though, but on buying one to those scamming (r)etailers. 150€ more expensive on all (r)etailers in France, EVGA EU Store gives the FTW3 Ultra at 850€ while every french site makes you pay 1000€. Whatever BS excuse they'll say, they broke trust. Not even mentionning that with an associate code you can get a 5% rebate so.... There's that too !

I'm waiting to see Amazon.fr prices, and if they are as bad as the others, I'll get one from EVGA EU Store. Which I'm happy to say is pretty much the only one who truly deserves my money for the card.

So far there are a couple of scenarios for actually getting one:

1. You are a neckbeard with no job that can camp on websites refreshing all day (and also luck)

2. You got lucky and EVGA’s garbage website just happened to let you check out

That’s about it for now. The launch is/was garbage. In 2-3 weeks there will magically be stock I’m sure. So shocking that it’ll be around the time of the upcoming AMD announcements. lol, not.

New cards are always hard to find as are new motherboards.  Vid cards however are especially prone to selling out quickly. I generally just let the supply catch up (about 6 months later) then order. I get the card I want and hopefully one with all the bugs worked out.

I pretty much gave up also, sold my 1080ti before launch to get atleast some good money, for 1440p it was getting weak anyway. Stores are crushed by bots sadly. and whats more, local retailers cranked up all prices like **** (150-200 euros more than stock aib prices which is unacceptable at all, and i am surprised that AIB does not care how bad light is putting it up to them, cause retailers are full of lies to the ground telling ppl that prices are not known but selling cards cranked up to heavens). Only option is to get the card abroad, or some EU online store, atleast here its finally fixed so there is slight chance. So now i wait for hybrid and for amd if it will impress. Hopefully i will have slight luck to get my card till end of the year, otherwise i will pack up case and mobo back to boxes, rest is gonna be sold and then some day in half of 2021 build the rig from scratch.

I've pretty much given up. I'll check stock periodically but I know it's a fruitless endeavor. Maybe we will see it improve when the AMD cards come to market but I'm not counting on anything at this point.

Honestly I was considering eBay for stupid prices for a 3090 but as I had already sold my 2080ti I found the last new EVGA 2080 super I could find and will 'step up' when stock arrives at EVGA. Seems like the best option for me.

I got an Asus 3090 Tuf ordered from Amazon for Oct 13 or 14th.  Looks like that's what I'll be rolling with since I couldn't get anything from evga that would fit in my case (XC3 3080 or XC3 3090).

Not giving up.  I just have multiple alerts setup from multiple sites.  Got close a few times, but I'm not about to sit around all day waiting on non-existent cards.  If people stop buying from scalpers, they will stop trying to buy them all.

Not given up but not going to do the mass attack at 6AM thing any more. If I snag one great. If I don’t, that’s how it goes. May also just wait for a more reasonably priced 3080Ti since those look pretty certain at likely half the price.

There are plenty of stock on eBay! lol


This is why it’s worth trying. The eBay resellers want a profit and having to fight each other for a few dollars profit won’t be worth it.

Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

I'm kind of losing interest in the whole thing. What kind of adult with a full-time job has the time and energy to be waking up at 6AM, slamming F5, managing to maybe find something in stock, and then failing to checkout? The whole setup is ridiculous, and the fact that most sites won't let us back order is completely asinine.

I just had my server run distill.io refreshing all the Amazon 3090 pages every 10 seconds and ping me when something changes. Got one yesterday when it came in stock for a whopping 90 seconds.



On the US site? I haven't seen it even listed.
