RTX 3080: epic success for the latest from NVidia

Available for just a few days at a price of 719 euros, the Nvidia RTX 3080 is already enjoying incredible success, going so far as to go out of stock just a few hours after its official launch in the United States but also in France. The phenomenal power of this graphics card has created incredible enthusiasm among gamers but also among cryptocurrency mining enthusiasts.

Barely available online, the RTX 3080 from NVIDIA sold like hot cakes. In fact, it only took a few hours for the latter to find itself out of stock in the US but also on the European continent. Both on Amazon marketplaces and at Best Buy or at Nvidia, the shortage is in full swing. On the boutique side, the enthusiasm was such that some people spent the night in front of the points of sale to ensure they could buy their precious item.

Even before NVIDIA revealed the characteristics of this new graphics card, who would have imagined for a single second that the RTX 3080 would have faced such success on the very day of its release? This is clearly the best launch we have seen in the PC Gamer component category.buy the best high-performance gaming PC

A shortage that affects the whole of France

On social networks, some Internet users from the American continent post photos of the endless queues present even before the stores open. It feels like a rockstar’s concert as the queues are so impressive reports one of the geeks present on site. This shortage affects everyone, because even a journalist from the famous magazine THE VERGE had to resign himself to this wave of buyers present in front of the Micro Center store, the test will be for later!

Same observation for France where the shortage seems inevitable. Nvidia’s RTX 3080 remains difficult to find, although on marketplaces like Cdiscount it seems that there are still a few copies available. At Rue du Commerce, LDL or Materiel.net, however, the graphics card is no longer available and the same is true on the official Nvidia website. One thing is certain, if you are not one of the lucky ones who managed to get your hands on one of the first copies of the latest from Nvidia, you will have to be patient to get one.

To conclude, if you were considering giving your gaming setup a new upgrade by purchasing this powerful graphics card, you will have to wait a few more weeks, or even a few months, for online stores and physical stores to be restocked. If your budget allows it, there is still the RTX 3090 announced for September 24 but at a much more expensive price (2x times more expensive to be precise) or even the RTX 3070, a less efficient model but also offered at a lower price (advertised at €519).
