NVIDIA apologizes before booking RTX 3090
- The $1,500 GPU built for “extreme gamers” will go on sale this morning.
- It also said that compared to the RTX 3080, you will only see a 10% to 15% performance increase, but the price is twice as high, which is $1,500 instead of $700.
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 will start accepting pre-orders this morning, but it sounds like you need a lot of luck to get it. The company apologized for the lack of supply in a blog post while stressing that it was strictly designed and priced for enthusiasts.
The company wrote: “Since we built the GeForce RTX 3090 for unique user groups such as TITAN RTX, we apologize here because it will be in short supply on the day of launch.” “We know this is frustrating. We are working with partners to increase supply in the coming weeks.”
The RTX 3090 is designed for what NVIDIA calls “top gamers”, with 10496 CUDA cores and 24GB of excellent GDDR6X memory. If you are one of the few people who own an 8K TV, then it is also suitable for “creator making and rendering movies” or 8K games.
It also said that compared to the RTX 3080, you will only see a 10% to 15% performance increase, but the price is twice as high, which is $1,500 instead of $700.
However, this is unlikely to deter buyers who want to buy and flip cards for the profit-in fact, high prices and apologies may bring more demand.
After all, when the RTX 3080 Founders Edition went on sale, it immediately sold out and started appearing on eBay at crazy prices.
