I managed to click on a 3090 card at exactly opening bid this morning but it vanished from my newegg shopping cart within 10 seconds, faster than I could click on checkout. It seems the bots stole the show again.
Hopefuly they learned and look at each order adresses and cancel the there GPU if they ordered more then one and then with those spare orders check pre order list and give it to people who pre ordered it
I am now prepared to wait for a long time. I actually want a specific board partner 3080 and my hope to get one soon kinda died. So I can as well wait and see what AMD has to offer (even so they have to come up with something extraordinary good, in order to make me go away from Nvidia, at least same rasterization performance, same raytracing performance and even their own proofed version of DLSS 2.0 compared to 3080, for better price to make me switch).
