Thanks for that list, jacobvandy! Lighter

That's what EVGA told me too, and they are still on the original day of release for my card.
Only 3 hours and 18 min left !

Basically half the time down the list they have completed so far but production increased in Feb.
So, betting I'm within the next 30 days. yay? Crazy Drool

I know it's only 3060 ti, nothing supercharged but it's the last piece of my moderate pandemi'clypse build.
Should be keeping me 2 to 3 years within current tech. Paperbag

My first HDD was also 30MB - an Atari Megafile 30 to go with that awesome 1040STE.

I guess Nvidia did not want to get sued by its shareholders for not maximizing profits by selling to miners at extremely high prices?

Within each type of chip, though, all of these companies make several different models. The basic one that is closest to MSRP, then one with better cooling and factory overclocks, one with overkill cooling so the user can go nuts if they want, etc. EVGA has good service after you finally become a customer, but they're just like the rest of them, they like money, so... They aren't bothering to release the cheaper models in any significant number, if at all, when they can put what few chips they do get into those premium packages that sell for higher prices. Especially the high end ones, 3080 and 3090.

This is the most comprehensive TL;DR queue summary out there, it's maintained by an EVGA employee and updated daily with the most relevant details. Most queues are still on the very first day of release, the only ones that have moved significantly (a couple days, maybe a week or two) are the premium models. Some models were basically cancelled and their queue never moved at all. Non-premium models of 3080 and 3090 haven't been reported sold for at least the past 30 days. All while they're still sending products into retail stores... I've seen they have the 3080 Ultras at Best Buy every time they drop GPUs there, at least a couple times per month, while those queues are still stuck in the first few days of sign-ups.

Damn forgot, EVGA told me the reason the 3060 ti is behind even though it uses different parts.
It's because the 3060 ti is the most popular card, due to it's budget price.
Hopefully, those newer 3060 cards will take some of the pressure off, using even different parts.

Thanks RedEye9, but that's out of my budget (more than twice the price). Gtk about more expensive cards.
That makes sense too, but I think the processors and the ram are different than rtx 3070-3090 cards.

So in theory they would most likely be made in different fab lines, with different parts (i.e. not holding up high end at all).
Oddly, I asked EVGA if 3060 ti was at the back of the line, in regards to supplies.
They said, "no we are putting all card lines out as soon as we get them, weekly."
It's possible they were misleading me but I'm inclined to believe them.
They were honest about year long delay, 3 or so days before it was in the news.

Update: Nvidia has confirmed to Neowin that the driver version was a developer driver that inadvertently included an internal tool that removed the mining hash rate limitations. The driver has now been removed, but with it out in the wild, it should be easy for anyone to use the cards for mining.

@Acleacius
Your on EVGA's list for a 3060ti.
Someone said that the more expensive cards enter the food chain quicker. Since you're dying to spend that check Just put an auto-notify on one of these; EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 XC3 ULTRA HYDRO COPPER GAMING
P/N: 10G-P5-3889-KR
They're only $899.99

That's exactly what the EVGA peeps said last week, which I didn't want to believe when I posted about it. "looks lean, through the rest of the year."

F*king F*k sticks, I had to keep pushing the current card a little longer and now I'm stuck with a 4 year old card. Raincloud

Honestly it runs pretty good at 19x10 but no rtx and I can run 2k, just not newer games set on high intensity graphics.
The worst part is being psyched to play several newer games with rtx at 2k+. So now I spend my day kicking myself ! Kick

Can't even spend my stimulus check on one! Paperbag

I am late to pc's compared to most here.
I remember seeing a Maxtor 300MB drive for $300 in the 90's thinking no one would ever need that much space.
