Nvidia and AMD respond to big GPU shortage

by vladt » 13/01/21, 11:11

Nvidia's new RTX 3080, 3070, 3060 Ti and 3090 and AMD RX 6800 and 6800 XT are all incredibly hard to find, selling out instantly every time they appear, due to an incredible level of demand that makes that these GPUs are worth several hundred dollars more than the MSRP. A Trump tax and soaring cryptocurrency prices could also make them even more expensive. Many older graphics cards are also sold out online.

This week, Nvidia and AMD finally have some updates - and that's bittersweet news.

On the plus side, AMD tells The Verge that it expects to sell more of its own RX 6800, 6800 XT, and RX 6900 XT benchmark design cards on its own website in Q2021 579 at the price of their stickers. , which should mean $ 649, $ 999, and $ XNUMX instead of the inflated ones. But AMD is only committed to making them available "to as many players as possible", which may not reassure buyers who felt AMD had a paper launch to begin with.

Nvidia, meanwhile, is now saying its GPU supplies to consumers and partners "will likely remain meager until the first quarter," and we're not even talking about the first quarter of the year - Nvidia's fiscal first quarter. does not end until late. April. It's a terribly long wait.

Again, it's demand, and not just supply constraints, that keeps us from managing graphics cards. Nvidia tells us that since its launch, its RTX 30 series GPUs at $ 499 and above have sold almost twice as much as the RTX 20 series after the same amount of time. You should know that some components come from foreign countries

The RTX 30 series is a much bigger upgrade than the previous generation was, mind you - there weren't many games that took advantage of Nvidia's ray tracing back then, and the cards in the GTX 10 series people were still resisting it's okay.)

Nvidia at least seems to think that crypto miners aren't taking all the cards yet, despite the sky-high prices we've recently seen for Bitcoin and Ethereum.

During their back-to-back keynotes at CES 2021 today, AMD praised how its new graphics cards have given the company "high-end leadership" and noted that "many gamers are excited about the series. Radeon RX 6000 ”, while Nvidia acknowledged that“ these products have been difficult to find, and we would like to thank you for your patience as we continue to work hard to catch up. "

It'll be a wait, and you shouldn't be surprised if Nvidia just announced $ 329 GeForce RTX 3060 is hell to buy, just like its predecessors. As many have asked: why can't we buy one and they'll ship it when it's ready?
