Danish Retailer Reports on Record-Low RTX 30 Series Cards Received from Manufacturers

It has been nearly a month since NVIDIA’s Ampere-based GeForce RTX cards launched. To this day, they seem almost mythical in both performance and availability. Spending hours, days, or weeks mashing F5 doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be successful in getting one, either. Danish retailer Proshop has done something unprecedented. It’s published charts detailing all orders from manufacturers for the GeForce RTX 3070/3080/3090 cards. Thanks to Guru3D for spotting this. Let’s hope it doesn’t get penalized for the seemingly cardinal sin of speaking about Fight Club, since no other retailers have felt the need to come public with similar info. Below are four charts, one for each card type, followed by a breakdown.

So, it may not have all the major manufacturers listed, but even with these four, we start to get a pretty clear picture of the numbers. In total, Proshop reported on 44 different models. Next, we have a chart of the grand totals.

Summary

Now, as the RTX 3070 has not officially launched yet, it is understandable why there are zero customer orders. However, it too shares a similar disparity of what Proshop has ordered compared to their underway/received numbers. Looking at the RTX 3080 series, we see that out of 8,400 cards ordered, there’s less than 500 combined for underway and received. The RTX 3090 is a mixed bag, as some were launched while others were delayed. In either case, it also shares the consistent pattern of extremely low amounts of cards making it to the retailer from the manufacturers. So, there you have it. Some cold, hard numbers on what one retailer has experienced with this underwhelming launch that has left many wondering if they’ll even be able to purchase a card before NVIDIA starts launching refreshes or variants.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
