RTX 30 series stock levels likely to rise in November says ASUS

Written by Stuart Thomas on Mon, Nov 16, 2020 12:30 PM

If you’ve at all been following the recent news of PC hardware and more specifically with graphics cards, you’ll probably have heard of the insane amount of stock shortages for the new RTX 30 series GPUs from Nvidia. Well if you’ve been trying your hardest to buy one in the UK, then a recent statement from ASUS says that you can expect stock levels to rise soon.

We know the demands for these new 30 series graphics cards are causing frustration for a lot of you,” ASUS said in an official statement. “We see the messages and the comments and we are trying our hardest to get the graphics cards in your hands as quick as we can.

To update you all, we are seeing UK shipments increase in November, and we’ll be shipping as fast as possible to distributors and etailers.

Obviously this is just for the UK stock levels, which might be a bit disconcerting for anyone else around the globe. However, this does mean that shipments are being made and sent out as soon as they can, so it’s most likely other countries and regions will be seeing benefits from this as well not too long after.

ASUS also suggests to check your order status “as frequently as possible” and also to look out for “any direct communication with your chosen vendor.

As a side note, I discovered this nifty site called NowInStock.net which searches all over the internet and regularly updates stock notifications for various makes and models. It can be useful if you want to track who has some RTX 30 series graphics cards and what model, so I thought that would be interesting to share if you didn’t know about it.

What do you think? Have you been trying to get your hands on an RTX 30 series card? Which one? And will you be going with a specific brand? Let us know!

here in canada i have noticed the occasional 3070 being in store at Canada Computers, literally just one at a time. 3080 & 3090 are still non existent.

Bit late now, knowing there's potentially a 3080TI on the way I'll probably just wait a little longer

I'm kinda split on this myself. 3090s are still out of stock with random queues in the stores that do sell "pre-orders" (why can't we just call them "oders" like we used to???), so as the time passes, I might as well just wait for a 3080Ti to come out and hit the reviews, if I don't grab a 3090 by Christmas...

There's still the $250-$300 difference to consider. I'm on the fence myself but $1,000+ for a card vs. $750 might just be where I draw the line.

I'm actually considering getting a 3090, it's more expensive but in stock right now. It has more Vram, same performance roughly.


The 3080 ti probably won't be in stock till March next year and I've waited so long already

If only their price wasn't +£300-400 over "MSRP" it would be great...

They're cashing in on the "demand". It's a new marketing strategy - make it unavailable so the product seems more desirable than it is. Companies have been playing on crap like "FOMO" for years, but it's getting worse every time. Good for short-term stock price boosting, since you can show shareholders how "quickly" your product sells out.

Yep my local retailer doing this BS asking 2k€ for 3090 and lists only "one" in stock but when it gets bought they immediately, like half hour later, list it again with only "one" in stock. Usually their stock number is accurate and says something like 56 units in stock but they found new BS tactic with nvidia 30 series.
