Not coming folks, got my order in at 1 am PST and it had already been live on reddit for 2 hours by then. I say less than 5% chance even for confirmed orders since a shit ton of people were up for prime day...unless Dell really pulled a miracle and got close to 50k cards. Plausible? Yes but unlikely. Note that 50k of these cards is still only like $30-40m so peanuts for the big retailers to process but whether they had the inventory is highly questionable.

Out of curiosity, did you also receive a confirmation as well?

My PayPal payment went through around 12:32am along with a confirmation email. Contact support just to see if I could expedite my shipping, who informed me that there was an arrival date of 10/19 (!!) vs. the original 10/28 date of arrival.

If it doesn't end up going through, meh. This has been the my best attempt for trying to obtain a card without having to follow various subreddits, Discord servers or anything of the sort without a scripted bot :/

Yep received confirmation about 20 mins after placing the order. Let's see but looks like I am playing on 2060 for a while unless evga drops a very tasty deal on the 2080 ti b stock again and back to it I go....

Cancelled my Ventus 3090 order, wasn't shipping until Oct 28 and don't like that this version has less power stages than a FE, 18 vs 20. Also not into swapping water blocks onto cards anymore so will look for a pre-blocked card when they release. With AMD's offerings around the corner it's prudent to wait, especially if it competitively brings price drops.

Just got a confirmation email so keeping my fingers crossed it actually ships. I assumed I’d of gotten a cancellation email by now.

Mine still shows 10/27 so very cautiously pessimistic :) . Atleast I have the 9/21 evga notifies to fall back on hopefully by some time next month.

If I was nvidia dealing with this situation minus well flip a bunch of cards on a site that can comfortably mark up and sell products rather then distribute them everywhere and let the bots clear the shelves. It will be interesting to see how it plays out but I wouldnt put it past dell to get the first big shipment of stock

Not seeing any 3080's or 3090's come up on Dell's site. If someone has a direct link to one, would love to see it.

Did you guys order from the first link or the premiere link?

still haven’t received that email but my card has yet to be charged. Ordered from the premiere link @9am est

I assume they just got so many orders in that it’s going to take time to inform everybody that they sold out

Premiere link, and even though I got the email about the delay, my order still shows delivery by Oct 21 but the hold has been released from my debit card.

So this just popped up on Reddit. First time I have seen this so I have no clue if it is legit.

Just got an email saying new arrival date is November 11th

I wanted to wait to see what AMD has to offer anyways. Not a bad situation to find myself in TBH

Unfortunately, we are experiencing production delays due to an inventory shortage due to which your order has been delayed. The revised Estimated Ship Date for your order is 01/02/2021

You might as well not cancel until you get one. Maybe enough people will cancel in front of you to bump you up to Nov, Dec.

With my luck, though, only the people with an expected date later than mine will cancel. Those who are in line to get it earlier will keep it.

Like everyone else before me, why is it so difficult to spend my money?!

Right!! People are ready to throw $700...$800...on a graphics card and up and nobody is there to take it.
