EVGATech_DanielMPatience is a virtue my friends.
XhanXaijineldub0844Eventually demand will level off and there will be a surplus.5 months is longer than you think.
AurummorituriThe bots are primed for any restocks. Even if they cannot check out the insane traffic basically DDOSes the entire site and even Elites cannot finish checkout. They need Cloudflare or something to block the traffic BEFORE it reaches the site.

RareAir23Jacob, I know you may never see this post but if do I pose this question: are your words saying that the eVGA Store is going from "scarce" level stock of the 3080 (all models) to "nominal" level or "optimal" level sooner than later?
KyatoAurummorituriThe bots are primed for any restocks. Even if they cannot check out the insane traffic basically DDOSes the entire site and even Elites cannot finish checkout. They need Cloudflare or something to block the traffic BEFORE it reaches the site.Cloudflare doesn't stop bots from doing these things, it slows them down, but doesn't even remotely stop them. That's why I wish evga and others would go with phone confirmations (after all, our phone numbers are in our accounts, why not USE THEM?)
Mandalorian1977I hope gamers refusing to buy from scalpers causes the scalpers to just stop buying them. I guess i can hope.
mchang1984Jacob, In 2020, the race for cyber security for businesses is probably the number 1 concern. Times have changed. You literally have hackers running bots from their own bedrooms. Doesn't matter what product they go after: Shoes, Purses, Playstation 5's, Xbox Series X, NVidia 3080 or 3090 whatever. They will abuse the system and sell everything on Ebay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cKGOzcxoig&t=104s Look at the video and go to 1:40 in the video and you will see how a kid like this has a program running that spams the checkout process with his bot. That's basically what happened in the 3080 launch, the 3090 launch and will happen again in the 3070 launch unless EVGA gets serious about upgrading their security. This is the new reality and it is the new world that we live in. So the only way is to fight fire with fire, you guys can't allow yourselves to get hacked with DDOS attacks and E Commerce API Exploits each time. Time to hire some Cyber Security Consultants and get some advice on how to protect the EVGA store from being hacked. I would recommend checking out Crowdstrike, they protect against all kinds of intrusions and hacks. https://www.crowdstrike.com/ ^^ That's what we use in my company and it works great.
EnderElementI wonder when there will be a point in time where there's new stock everyday. Not just once every few days or how it's like now.
gaboltonSupply is only a piece of the problem. It doesn't matter how many units you have in stock if the web site crashes every release.

bavorgabolton It doesn't matter how many units you have in stock if the web site crashes every release.I was trying to give EVGA my money for over an hour and 45 minutes before the card was out of stock and my purchase kept getting timed out or kicked out. The "special" page for EVGA Elite members didn't help much. I've never seen it be this difficult to make a $2000+ purchase online before. lol
