Overstock of GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards could prompt NVIDIA to delay the launch of its GeForce RTX 40 Series, according to Moore’s Law is Dead. The YouTuber recently got a GeForce RTX 3090 for only $800 from one seller who said they wanted to get rid of some of the stock because there’s an excess amount of Ampere cards in the channels. An email from another seller details the desperation growing in the market.
Other sources say they are also sitting on stockpiles of graphics cards. One said it is at risk of losing tens of thousands of dollars if it cannot move them, while others say NVIDIA could delay its Lovelace launch until November or December because of the now-flooded market.
“…and he just said he thought the prices were going to keep going lower and he just wanted to get rid of some 3090 stock. This guy here is actually feeding into the other things I’ve been hearing behind the scenes, indeed telling you guys there’s a lot of extra Ampere stock in the channels.”
