EVGA Will Stock ‘Thousands’ of Nvidia RTX 3080 GPUs This Week, Product Management Director Confirms


As we all know, the launch of the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 video cards has left many users somewhat angry, as the retail stores have been literally stormed leading to a rapid exhaustion of the product. However, according to Jacob Freeman, EVGA’s global product management director, the manufacturer could have “Thousands” of graphics cards in stock available during this week.

This bodes well for the purchase of a GeForce RTX 3080 over the next few days, although it is very likely that overall stocks will remain limited for some time to come. Hopefully, EVGA isn’t the only company capable of stocking GeForce RTX 3080 anytime soon, and nobody knows how many hundreds of thousands of GPUs will be needed to meet the current demand.

Freeman released the information by answering questions from several users on Twitter, confirming that the company will have a significant number of graphics cards shipping this week.

Freeman pointed out that the company’s replenishment efforts will involve the official website, Amazon, and “many” other stores, and retail sites. However, the company is unable to provide an exact date and time for their availability.

The launch of NVIDIA’s Ampere 30 series certainly felt more “on paper” than anything else, with many retailers out of stock in seconds. Almost instant sell-outs were compounded by profiteers who employed bots to stock up on the few available pieces and then resell them on eBay and other sites at far higher prices.

EVGA offers a rather substantial line of graphics cards, starting with the RTX 3080 XC3 and FTW3 Ultra Gaming. The company says it will provide further updates as stocks are replenished.

Recently, we also informed you that an important leak has confirmed the arrival of GeForce RTX 3060, GeForce RTX 3070, and RTX 3080 with doubled VRAM in the near future.
