I never even saw Newegg show any in stock.
I saw stock for about a minute before the site crashed here in Canada, but couldn't bring myself to pay that much. I'll just wait for a 3080.
Managed to get an FE 3080 last night directly from NVIDIA thanks to amazing timing on my part and using a bot to auto add the card to my cart and start the checkout process.
Is it worth $150 over the Asus TUF?
Had one in my cart, all gone while trying to check out.gigabyt appeared but sold out in 10 seconds again.
So i ordered a 3080 direct from amazon on launch day. 1 week later it still has not updated and I have not been charged for it... I chatted with them and they gave me a BS story about it being available right up till my order completed and then they had no stock to fulfill my order.... I told them they effectively sold me a pre order and that it was bait and switch.. I would have expected something like this from third party seller but this is amazon direct seller. So now i am stuck with no ETA and i could have placed a pre order locally last week at memory express . Thanks Amazon!
Cancel the Amazon order and try getting the FE off nvidias website. They have stock daily at around midnight pst.
Must be nice to be able to pre order. I haven’t seen a single card with a pre order option. I wish nvidia would let people do phone pre orders so we could actually get a fucking card.
The pre order is fully pay up front and there is no option to return or change your mind. Guess i better pick what i want if I go that route.
I hope you are right. I will stalk them tonight at 3am EST time.Midnight PST - at least it coincides with fantasy football waivers on the East Coast lol.
I’d gladly pay cash up front if I was guaranteed a card in a decent time frame
and Sony, and Microsoft. We all know they are laughing all the way to the bank.I am strongly considering Big Navi if AMD pulls off a decent launch. Nvidia is the root cause of the problem guys...
Yep this is a botched launch period.and Sony, and Microsoft. We all know they are laughing all the way to the bank.
Let us know how you like it. I have one on order with Amazon.Welp I got a rtx 3080 evga xc3 card in the mail. Had to send my buddy money in Massachusetts to get me the card from microcenter and mail it to me.
Sucks to have to pay the shipping costs but it is what it is.
Let us know how you like it. I have one on order with Amazon.
After I finished posting in the Ampere thread in the HotDeals section I tabbed over to Amazon page, refreshed, and saw it was available. Placed an order with 1 click buy and 5 seconds later was OOS already. So essentially, dumb luck.How the hell did you pull that off? I’ve been trying there since launch day and haven’t been able to get one
