It looks like the supply for NVIDIA’s RTX 30 series cards won’t be improving anytime soon. The RTX 3070 which is slated to launch on the 28th of October will likely see limited availability this year. As per the Danish retailer, Proshop, it still has only 106 units of the 3070 in its warehouse, the same as the figure reported 12 days earlier.
This is markedly lower than the number of units ordered (4,280). As per the retailer, there are 140 more on the way, but that’s still a far cry from the 4K+ requested.
On the bright side, supply should improve in the holiday season as the Chinese National Day Golden Week holiday is finally over. Regardless, it will still take a couple of months for supply to reach the expected level of demand which means most people still won’t be able to buy an RTX 30 series graphics card.
AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series which is going to be announced soon will hopefully see better availability, as it’s based on TSMC’s 7nm process which is a much more tested node in comparison to Samsung’s 8nm LPP.
