Yay, more 30-series cards that only bots can buy. It is nice that manufacturers are finally starting to produce smaller models. Not every GPU needs a giant, triple fan, 3-slot cooler.

Unfortunately, I sunk a ton of time into trying to secure a 3070 or 3080 over the past 3 weeks. Stock alerts are useless when the websites with GPU stock error out, fail to complete checkout, or go offline. It's beyond frustrating to have a GPU in your cart only to not be able to check out....while simultaneously seeing scalpers brag on Discord about getting 4x of the thing you're just trying to check out 1 of. The 30-series has been a complete and total nightmare. Really wish Nvidia and partners would stop blasting PR spam about products that are impossible to buy.

I have search tabs stored as shortcuts on my browser for microcenter and I checked them every day.

I was able to get a 5800x and a 3060ti at microcenter. It's way better than trying to compete online with bots.

I have a mini-ITX rig with a Geforce 1070 under the hood. I'm happy to see some new GPU's coming out; but I have never even heard of these companies. You?

I bought one Inno3D RTX 3080 ICHILL X4 today without any issues in a nearby computer shop. For 1800 NZD or like 1300 USD. High demand means high price, that's how economics is working. MSRP like government-regulated prices in USSR, this <Mod Edit> cannot work properly in the real world and only leads to a deficit.
