NVIDIA RTX 3080, 3090 Out of Across Retailers in Pre-Holiday Season: Ampere Production Still Limited?

NVIDIA’s RTX 30 series “Ampere” graphics cards continue to remain out of stock across most retailers. The chipmaker seems to be focusing on the mobile market for obvious reasons, with the desktop segment primarily getting shipments of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, 3070, and the 3080 Ti over the last 45 days. The top-end GeForce RTX 3080 and 3090 GPUs remained the most scarce, being one of the least popular RTX GPUs as per Steam’s November stats:

Figures from Mindfactory agree with the Steam report. The Radeon RX 6700 XT and 6600 XT were the most popular graphics cards, followed by the RX 6600 and the RTX 20 series lineup (combined). The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, 3070, and 3080 Ti sold 50, 30, and 10 units, respectively. On the other hand, the RTX 3060, 3080, and 3090 were completely out of stock for the entire week.

Going by these figures, it looks the holiday season will, once again, be a barren one. The few GPUs available are going for scalper prices, with vendors trying to maximize profits. The re-launch of the GeForce RTX 2060 12GB is a very good example of that.
