RTX 3070 / 3080 / 3090 Availability Not The BIG Problem…

The availability of GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards is not really the BIG problem for most gamers…

There are actually many RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards for sale… if you can afford them!

 

RTX 3070 / 3080 / 3090 Availability Not The BIG Problem…

Together with the newly-launched Radeon RX 6800 XT, the GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are the most popular gaming upgrades this holiday season.

Many gamers are gripping about how difficult it is to buy one, but a quick check reveals that there are really quite a lot of RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards for sale.

Sure, they are not as abundant as the RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2060 SUPER when they were launched; but you can still find quite a few of them online.

Here is a list of RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards available online, as of 27 November 2020 :

SINGAPORE

RTX 3070 / 3080 / 3090 : Their Price Is The BIG Problem!

As the list above shows, there are many shops selling all three cards. The only country where there appears to be some shortage would be the UK.

The bigger problem really is the absurd prices some of these cards are selling for at these online shops.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has a starting price of $499, while the GeForce RTX 3080 has a starting price of $699. Yet they are both selling for 2-3X that in the US and the UK, and 50-100% more in other countries.

Only the GeForce RTX 3090, with its astronomical starting price of $1,499, has not seen ridiculous price scalping. It is only 20-30% more expensive around the world.

Of course, price is highly-dependent on supply and demand, but that is partly because NVIDIA and their partners appear to be closing an eye on scalping.

Until there is some price control, it appears to be profitable for some retailers to hold onto their cards, and offer them at high price points.

The only way around this is for consumers to hold off on buying overpriced cards, and opt for older cards with far better value instead.

What’s wrong with the RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2060 SUPER? Absolutely nothing.

So they are not the fastest cards in the world, but they are still very powerful graphics cards in their own right. Heck, are you buying a graphics card to play games, or to show off?

Instead of getting frustrated at scalpers, buy the best value graphics card you can afford and go play some games!

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Price & Availability

Earlier, we were told that the launch price would be US$ 429. However, NVIDIA decided in the end to introduce the premium Founders Edition at US$ 449 – the same launch price as the GeForce GTX 1070 (Price Check).

This makes the Founders Edition about US$ 50 more expensive than the Radeon RX Vega 56 (Price Check), but the “regular” version should be priced around US$ 379. Of course, the actual street prices will be somewhat higher, and there will be different overclocked versions offered at higher prices.

This lower price point means a price cut for the GeForce GTX 1070 (Price Check), which despite rumours to the contrary, is still listed and sold on NVIDIA’s website.

As we leaked earlier, NVIDIA officially revealed the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti on 26 October 2017, with the cards only shipping from 2 November 2017 onwards.

The Halloween Leak

Our availability leak was somewhat confirmed by a GIGABYTE leak (caught by Hexus) that hinted at a launch around Halloween (31 October).

Screenshot credit : Hexus.net

The now-removed teaser image showed an AORUS graphics card with the word Ti (the title of the horror movie It flipped) scrawled in red. There was even a red balloon lifting a $100 bill from a wallet, alluding to the money you will save with this card…

ASUS ROG Teased The GeForce GTX 1070 Ti!

The ASUS ROG team decided to get in on the action by releasing this puzzle on Twitter as a teaser (thanks, Cedric Samonte!). Obviously, the answer is 1070 Ti.

 

Two GALAX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Cards Leaked!

The specifications and pictures of the GALAX GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX and GALAXY GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX-SNPR White graphics cards have just been leaked.

Both GALAX cards will have a 1607 MHz base clock, a 1683 MHz boost clock and come with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory over a 256-bit interface and a memory bandwidth of 256 GB/s. Curiously, their specifications list a maximum TDP of 150 W, which is most likely a typo.

The KFA2 GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX Pictures & Details Leaked!

Just a week before the official announcement, KFA2 leaked the details and pictures of the upcoming KFA2 GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX graphics card. Take a look!

The KFA2 GeForce GTX 1070 Ti EX specifications confirm what we revealed earlier. It will have a 1607 MHz base clock, a 1683 MHz boost clock and come with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory over a 256-bit interface and a memory bandwidth of 256 GB/s.

The pictures also confirm that the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will have both 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors, which further proves that the TDP is 180W, not 150W as listed in the GALAX cards’ specifications.

Here are additional photos that KFA2 “accidentally” released of the card. Unfortunately, the page has now been taken down…
