NVIDIA offers a
GeForce RTX 3070 Availability Update
, announcing a delay to the launch of
GeForce RTX 3070
cards. They say this is to make more units available on
launch day, which is now October 29th. It seems like the same number of cards
will be available by that day whether or not they first launch them on October
17th as previously planned, but they feel this makes things better:
of GeForce RTX 3070 graphics cards are ramping quickly. We’ve heard from many of
you that there should be more cards available on launch day. To help make that
happen, we are updating the availability date to Thursday, October 29th.
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 GeForce RTX 3070 delivers incredible performance and features, including
NVIDIA Reflex and Broadcast, for $499. Across a variety of ray-traced and
rasterized DirectX and Vulkan titles, the GeForce RTX 3070 delivers similar or
faster performance than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (which sold for twice the price)
and is on average 60% faster than the original GeForce RTX 2070.
