Nvidia delays RTX 3070 launch

Today in a blog post, Nvidia announced that they will be delaying the launch of the GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card by two weeks from 15th October to 29th October, to allow them to build more stock ahead of the launch. It is exactly a day after AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series announcement. 

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,” the company wrote.

This news comes amid the ongoing supply shortage of the previously launched RTX 3080, which still remains out-of-stock almost everywhere. 

Previously, Nvidia had moved the launch of RTX 3070 by two weeks to 15th October to undercut AMD after the Team Red revealed that they will be announcing their upcoming RDNA2 based graphics cards on 28th October. 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 will be the first GA104-based desktop model and will feature 5888 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. The card has an MSRP of 499 USD and is advertised as faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti which launched at an MSRP of 999 USD. 

Another thing to note here is that reviews will be published on the same day as the card goes on sale – October 29th.
