NVIDIA’s latest generation of gaming-oriented graphics cards, the Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 Series, has resulted in the company’s most impressive launch ever. This is according to green team’s new GTC Spring 2021 Investor Day slide deck, which includes various charts demonstrating how quickly users embraced the Ampere architecture in comparison to older technologies such as Turing (GeForce RTX 20 Series) and Pascal (GeForce GTX 10 Series). Unfortunately, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series products continue to be very difficult to find due to high demand amid component shortages—as suggested by EVP and CFO Colette Kress in a recent webcast, gamers will probably have a tough time finding one throughout the year.
“Overall demand remains very strong and continues to exceed supply while our channel inventories remain quite lean. We expect demand to continue to exceed supply for much of this year. We believe we will have sufficient supply to support sequential growth beyond Q1.”
