I've been checking amazon.ca, the EVGA store, newegg.ca and bhphotovideo.com 5 to 10 times per day to try and get a xc3 3080 card ever since initial launch date.

I've also never been able to get ONE notification email to order (even though I've setup "notify me" on all of these site). I really need the xc3 3080 because that's the only card I can fit in my pc case...

C'mon guys if I hear another "just keep trying and keep checking the store and try to beat the bots" reply, this is impossible to do... Please help.

    I mean, checking the stores and praying to get lucky is basically the only thing to do thanks.to limited stock. For EVGA you can follow Jacob on Twitter and will have a semi decent idea of when to refresh at EVGS at least.

    It's essentially a paper launch. I check a couple times a day.. nothing. Just how it is. Asking for help is not going to magically conjure up a GPU for you.
     
    I suppose there's two ways to look at it. Either Nvidia purposely keep the quantities low on launch in order to create a feeding frenzy (all publicity is good), or they simply decided to launch as quickly as possible and not bother to make enough prior to launch to at least sort of satisfy the demand.
     
    From my point of view, nothing has changed. I still have the same rig I've been playing games on for a few years now, and I can still play the games. The lack of 3080s has not caused my computer to seize up. Eventually the GPU I want will show up for sale and I'll buy it. Nvidia hasn't created any good will out of this, but there's nothing we can do about it unless we buy an AMD GPU.. which I really, really, don't want to do. We can't bite the hand that feeds, but we can loath it.

    Jacob on Twitter said he would give us an update on Monday about the next EVGA restock. They haven't done a drop in awhile now so I am assuming they have built up a lot of stock which will give us a lot better of a chance to get one this week

    Also, I refreshed Newegg's website for two days non-stop on my phone and computer and saw the 3080 FTW3 drop...managed to buy it but my order got voided. Just shows how many people are watching for these cards...I'd just wait until supply evens out a bit more

    Someone mentioned that the stock we're seeing is the stock flown in. The most expensive shipping, and the stock for the first major was is being shipped in, which makes sense, but is likely 2-4 weeks or more during normal circumstances. No telling what port restrictions are like in SoCal atm. I had a watch band take months to arrive from Wuhan. It looks the better part of 3 months.  (No, I didn't order it from there on purpose.) That's just 1 watch, not an entire pallet or cargo container.

    Near some tar pits, hence the slow release, I'm guessing.

    Eventually supply will be high enough that the bots would be unprofitable. This isn't a limited time product like fancy sneakers.

    Local stores have it back ordered. But taking orders. Will fill orders as it arrives. Prices aren’t jacked up.

    What is the expectation of stock refills between now and the end of October?  Are we talking 100-300 units per week or 1000+ per week (across all skus)?

    I don't think they will ever tell us those numbers, unfortunately

    It would be nice to prioritize local pick ups and local stock. It’ll help out businesses and also deter bots from getting more stock. If it’s truly bots buying up all stock.

    I agree, but a lot of people don't have a micro center nearby and we know best buy is the absolutely worst at product launches. Just sucks that people are using bots to get a lot of these cards

    you CAN beat the bots, but you gotta be lucky.  like really lucky.  and only on certain sites.  Forget nvidia if you want a FE and forget pretty much any marketplace other than direct.  That's how  I got my xc3.

    If retailers would start to get a decent amount of cards that would lessen the online strain. I'd much rather drive to my local store to pick up a card.

    I would hope we have sufficient stock before January. Once the other manufacturers get some stock out there won't be so much strain on EVGA either. I'd much rather have a Strix but ASUS has been horrible at communicating availability.

    More websites should have bot protection, like its unrealistic for a human to checkout in 1 sec after the cards are up for grabs.

    More at once will definitely give us a better chance...IF the website can stay up and/or not move so slow.

    I've had a 3080 & 3090 FTW3 in the cart and believe me I'm fast, not a chance. Got all the way to submit order on both, the 3090 through the Elite page and poof! gone. I am waiting like everyone else. I know this probably isn't feasible but what about an invitation to purchase via an email link using a license key?

    Seems like the only real way to beat bots would be to have a randomized two/three factor system using text, calls and email. Possibly a unique identifier code.. Wouldn't stop all bots, but would definitely thin them out.

    Even if we get more in and more regularly it’s still going to be a challenge through the holidays. By Jan I think you’ll be able to get the card with relative East. Before then you’ll have to play the game.

    1 second to checkout. Unless these had a buy it now option where you could store your information.
