Mind sharing if you have any luck?
Oh don't worry, if I manage to snag a card I will spread the good word immediately! Doesn't seem like BB restocked today, sadly. No matter, whenever I'm stuck working at home (not that often anymore, now that I'm back to teaching in person) I keep my setup checking constantly while I work. Anything to increase the chance of getting something! I've noticed the 3070 tracker also showed some stock today, but I just don't want to spend $500 on a GPU. $400 is my ceiling, once the 3060 releases in 9 days, it'll be whichever I happen to get first, the 3060 or the Ti.Mind sharing if you have any luck?
And on the days you can work from home, keep the system checking every morning! I guess I'm lucky that when I'm not teaching, my job entails doing tons of research, so I'm happily reading and writing for hours on my computer at home while trackers are ready to go in the 2nd monitorBB isn't dropping today, guys. If we have any past drop to go by, the time has come and past, plus there was one just last week and they don't normally happen back to back. Still maybe be prepared this Friday but next Tuesday and Friday we might get lucky.
Is love lace the next generation of Nvidia GPUs?Wait till 2022 I'm serious. That is how you get a card. At that point love lace should come. Unless we get delayed because everyone will still want ampere
Very neat.Nvidia will be limiting 3060 mining performance by 50%.
Makes me sad for the re-sale value of the card, especially if the mining boom continues or a new one starts in a couple years.
Too late for me. Out of stock, but PNY would not be on my list anyway. Price was good, in this tariff world.3060 Ti n stock at the Office Depot right now:

I'm not jumping on it because I've had bad experiences with Office Depot's online system before, otherwise I'd go for it. If you're feeling adventurous though...
Best Buy reserves your card for (I think) 10 minutes once you hit the Checkout page. You'll need all 10 of those minutes to do their account/payment verifications depending on what they throw at you.
Aside from a page refresher you can point Distill at the "Sold Out" button to search the text "Add to Cart" and you'll get a ding as soon as it changes.
Once you actually hit the button you will have to wait in a queue/lottery system. I'm not sure being fast even matters at all.
Follow the chat from Now In Stock. Setup Apple Pay. Watch for New Egg combo drops. Use Apple Pay to get the second it drops. That’s how I got my 3070.I intend to join EVGA's waitlist. I want a stronger card for VR.
What else can I do to battle the bots? Will my local Best Buy get any?
I mean, we're very much in, "take what you can get, (and can afford)" territory, at the moment.Guys, I'm only doing pre-step. And I need your help
I build a computer, but it comes out very expensive. And the question arose, save up and buy 3080 or buy 3060 now. What do you recommend?
I love watching but at the same time, am quite 'amazed' at how desperation can push folks to accept mediocracy.
Do you realize the amount of money quoted in that Office Depot link for this gimped POS, is $50 below the fake but suggested MSRP for the current RTX3070FE card?
People are so desperate for any card, that in some cases they have abandoned the fact that a new generation should be faster than what they had prior.
They're people who sold a 1080Ti or a 5700XT only to struggle purchasing an RTX3060 at almost $500.
It is insane.
