The EVGA notify queue is still filling orders from September of last year. The backlog is absolutely insane.Meanwhile the product they announced 6 months ago is nowhere to be found
Lol im on it, I figured they stopped doing it, no wonder why I havent seen anything. Signed up in Oct!The 3080 Ti will get cancelled again next month. Then it will be rumored for June with 10 GB of memory and less CUDA cores. Then it'll be cancelled again, resurface with 8 GB, cancelled, 6 GB, cancelled, and eventually the cycle will repeat until the card doesn't exist...not that it existed in the first place!

The thing is both the pandemic and the crypto boom in early 2020 massively spiked demand. Manufacturing also has to be reserved well in advanced because well, TSMC/Samsung are the only ones who can make bleeding edge parts and they're usually close to capacity. So NVIDIA and AMD didn't order "enough" parts simply because they were blindsided by the sudden demand and by the time they wanted to ask the manufacturers for more parts, well, said manufacturers were basically booked for the foreseeable future.Why both companies don't come clean and confess that the RTX-3k's and the RX-6ks were far too ambitious for SOA FAB production, and the reason we can't buy them is because they can't make them in the volume quantities needed? A little honesty would be nice.
The system integrators have already gotten wise. 2 weeks ago you child build an entire system for roughly the resasle value of only the GPU.You guys know you can actually buy GPU's right now if you simply pull the trigger on a pre-built?
