NVIDIA postponed the start of sales of RTX 3070, so as not to cause a stir
NVIDIA announced the postponement of the start of sales of its new RTX 3070 graphics cards. They will arrive in stores not on October 15, but on October 29. This decision was made in order to have time for the release of a sufficient number of video cards.
Demand for the GeForce RTX 3080 was significantly higher than expected. The graphics cards went on sale on September 17th. Users faced a shortage of supply, and as a result, the price of new items on eBay ranged from $ 1000 to $ 2500 instead of the original $ 699. The company had to apologize for the chaos.
NVIDIA introduced its new Ampere graphics cards on August 31st. They are GeForce RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070. The RTX 3070 is still running on GDDR6. The number of CUDA cores is 5888, the amount of video memory reaches 8 GB. The manufacturer promises that the GeForce RTX 3070 provides the same or better performance than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (which is twice as expensive), and, on average, 60% faster than the GeForce RTX 2070. The announced price of the video card in the US is $ 499
