Finally was able to catch a 3090 XC Ultra for sale, for the 10 seconds they are available before instantly selling out... I was so excited I got it in my cart and through checkout fast enough to complete my order... 5 minutes later, I receive this email.  So disappointed :(

    If you are able to check out on Newegg and Amazon, you are likely not getting a card. The speed of a notification and your  mouse click is too slow. By the time you see a notification, several thousand bots have already attempted to purchase the card. This is not surprising

    I don't think most people realize the number of bots that are actively querying the Amazon/Newegg/Bestbuy pages. I have seen people optimizing query times on Github to maximize the query frequency because milliseconds matter here. I am sure people have even more advanced scripts that interface at the API level. There are so many software engineers working in the area of high frequency trading that this problem is likely very trivial to them.
    And yes, I am an aerospace engineer

    Well curse Newegg... I wondered why the Newegg Shuffle page was gone today. Didn't realize it meant they were throwing stock back to the bots again.

    Ouch got to love the bots and panic buyers... I have had over 100 30 series in my cart, had the payment servers lock up and time out not getting a card every time.

    Do you live near a Best Buy? I bought mine off BestBuy.com last December on the 8th which was a Tuesday at around 11:15AM EST. That's apparently in their usual stock update time frame.

    I was extremely lucky on scoring a 3090 FTW3 Ultra from Amazon with serial number 2114 black box. I have had it for a little over a month. It is possible by human clicking buttons but you need the luck to be on your side.

    It's not up for me.  I haven't seen too many Friday shuffles.  Will keep checking

    Strange, the shuffle is back today for me and I'm signed up. If you don't see the shuffle page make sure you're till signed in on the main newegg site, there might be an authentication issue or something.
