NVIDIA has been having a tough time with its latest GPUs, the RTX 30 series. With stock issues surrounding the new-gen CPUs, NVIDIA has now decided to push the launch of the GeForce RTX 3070 to October 29.
NVIDIA recently released the RTX 30 series, with the RTX 3080 first-day sales ending up a failure. Most of the already limited stock was grabbed by scalpers using bots. NVIDIA faced a lot of criticism over this. That’s likely why the company has delayed the launch of the GeForce RTX 3070 by two weeks.
NVIDIA says that the RTX 3070 production is quickly being scaled up. It cited the necessity to have enough stock available on launch day, as noted by fans, as the reason for the delay. NVIDIA noted:
“We know this may be disappointing to those eager to purchase a GeForce RTX 3070 as soon as possible, however this shift will help our global partners get more graphics cards into the hands of gamers on launch day.”
