The year 2020 is surely full of surprises both positive and negative but we are not going to debate about it. Instead, we will talk about the stock of Nvidia RTX GPU 3070, 3080, 3090 which is going to be refreshed.
Reports are coming that Nvidia has signed a $90 Million Dollars worth of deal with Samsung’s chipmaking business to produce Graphics Cards. For consumers like us, it means that we will not see any lack of stock of RTX line GPU’s in the first quarter of 2021.
Stores Where Nvidia RTX 3070/3080/3090/3060 Ti is Available in US
Micro Center physical store locations are generous when it comes the the RTX stock. However, you need to be on the spot to purchase them.
Newegg online store restocks the GPU’s daily at 7pm Eastern Time in weekdays. Unfortunately, they get sold out within minutes. So you need to have quick reflexes to grab one for yourself.
It should be the second place you are looking for cards. They usually have 1 per customer limit. Keep an eye on their Physical store in your Zip code area.
Even though Nvidia 3070 Ti cards are sold out within seconds on Amazon. You can try your luck.
Final Word, Be patient.
I know it’s Pandemic and you are most probably working at home or have limited to enjoy the games on your PC. Don’t buy the RTX 2070 or 2k series card. They have manufacturing faults and you’ll be returning it (RMA) a week after use. Nvidia is completely focused on 3000 series cards now. The stock will be there. Also, sometimes the newer batch of products are shipped with technical problems. So it won’t really hurt if you wait a little.
What if I cant wait for RTX cards?
Hmm. If that is the case, then you can look for reasonably priced used Graphic cards that can run your programs/games on medium settings. Don’t spend more than $100.
In the meantime, you can focus your energy on learning new skills such as programming or build your portfolio.
