RTX 3080 Launch Day
As expected, the launch day was a complete clusterfeck. Nvidia went out of stock of their Founders Edition immediately, and most other sites went down under the load. Only a lucky few managed to bag a card from this first batch, and those that missed out saw prices rocket for pre-orders of the next batch. For example at Overclockers.co.uk, the Zotac Trinity went up from £649 to £720, which they are blaming on Brexit. Really?! Brexit caused a £71 increase in one day?!
The wait for more stock may end up being a good thing, as it will enable gamers to study the reviews of all the different designs and pick the one that's right for their build. Hopefully within the next couple of months, most cards will be freely available to buy.
