19.10.2020 | Nvidia will no longer sell RTX 3080, 3090 Founders Edition from their online store
According to pcmag.com Nvidia will no longer sell their RTX3080 and 3090 Founders Edition graphic cards from its online store. For US users, they will be available through Best Buy.
This change was made after the RTX3080 and 3090 has sold out instantly on Nvidia’s website due to supply issues, malfunctioning retail websites and bots getting the products before customers – which afterwards showed up on third-party sites like eBay at a huge inflated prices.
This might be the reason behind why they switch to storefronts. “We have heard your feedback regarding the Nvidia online store and are working to improve the experience”, Nvidia said. “In the meantime, we will be selling our GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Founders Edition through other partners” they added. “In the US, you can shop for Founders Edition RTX 3080 and 3090 at Best Buy. In Europe, we continue to review Founders Edition fulfillment options.”
