EVGA has begun slicing the twine on its GPU Queue program for good as graphics card stock returns to regular. However, as a substitute of deleting this system suddenly, EVGA is killing off its GPU queue orders per GPU mannequin, beginning with the EVGA FTW3 fashions, which have the very best availability. In our case, we obtained an e-mail that the GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Gaming – one of many finest graphics playing cards for gaming, will not be accessible within the GPU queue beginning on the twenty third.
With the current cryptocurrency mining crash and the discount of GPU costs, it was inevitable that EVGA would not want the GPU queue order for getting and promoting items. Because of this, we totally anticipate EVGA to delete the queue in some unspecified time in the future. However that may rely completely on when EVGA receives sufficient quantity for each single graphics card product it sells.
In case you are nonetheless within the queue for a product, don’t fret, you’ll obtain a notification that your queue order will get deleted and that you could purchase your graphics card from EVGA’s retailer instantly. In our case, we have been notified two days upfront that EVGA eliminated all pending orders for the GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Gaming attributable to an inflow of GPU inventory for this specific mannequin.
We do not know what number of different GeForce RTX 30-series (Ampere) GPUs will drop out of this system; all we learn about is our GeForce RTX 3080 order. However there is a good probability many different fashions are getting reduce, particularly the higher-tier merchandise just like the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and GeForce RTX 3090, which do not see as a lot promoting site visitors as lower-end fashions.
However, regardless of the excessive stock for the GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 and different fashions we’d not learn about, do not anticipate any reductions on EVGA’s retailer. Most playing cards are nonetheless promoting for prime costs, with no playing cards at MSRP. Because of this, we suggest you try different retailers equivalent to Newegg for higher GPU costs on RTX 30-series GPUs.
Both means, that is one more good signal that GPU costs are hurdling all the way down to MSRP, and now’s the very best time to purchase a contemporary gaming GPU if you happen to do not wish to await next-generation GPUs.
