Edited : Nvidia RTX 3080 launch faked

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Update: Just dropped at 10:11 am est on nvidias site.

 

I'm going to start this off by saying that it has only been around an hour since the product showed out of stock on NVIDIA website. The issue with it showing out of stock, is that NVIDIA never actually loaded the product for sale, they just changes the button. Linked below is the endpoint data, and if you look, you don't see 3080 anywhere (https://api.digitalriver.com/v1/shoppers/me/products?format=json&apiKey=9485fa7b159e42edb08a83bde0d83dia&pageNumber=2&sort=listPrice-desc) . It is also no where in back end. The image I linked below is of automation software for Nvidias site, which also didn't detect a new product loaded since 3am est last night. Nvidia could've never released it without loading it onto there site, so they clearly never had stock to begin with. Im trying to put together what happened so please let me know if you guys know anything else.

Wasn't it on their site when they revealed? If not not the first time I'm pretty sure 


Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

they loaded the graphic and stuff on the frontend, but no actual stock was loaded in the backend. From purely looking at back end data you wouldn't even know the card exists. Them showing in on page and actually loading product are very different.

Probably didn't have any real stock and just wanted to get product out. Kinda sad they couldn't even sell a few cards tho

Not the first time I'm pretty sure but there is other companies doing this too in a similar way, they hype stuff up but nothing comes on actual release day

yes very surprising, i never expected nvidia to do such dishonest things with their gpu launch

 

good thing i have no plans to get a card until cyberpunk 2077 is out, and wont really consider anything specifically until theres some proper spec recommendations


topics i need help on:

Spoiler

I don't disagree, this is the first time i've seen it to this extent. Usually the companies sell like 10 then mark it out of stock, here they didn't even load a product.

The aftermarket cards atleast had / has stock (only some places tho) not sure if people will get it or it will be delayed

I don't know about you guys but this launch has made me really really really hate Nvidia. The product was never available for purchase. How do BestBuy and Nvidia make me do a CAPTCHA but now bots have bought every unit in existence?!

 

I actually don't care about 4K or FPS. I just need the CUDA cores because every code is built on them.

 

My fault for believing Nvidia will sell a GPU with 2x performance of 2080 Ti at half the price.

I've ran many bots, and know many devs closely, captchas so nothing to stop bots and are extremely easy to bypass. Even with an nvidia and bestbuy bot i still didnt hit.

I see. So CAPTCHAs are just there for us to train their crappy AI.

 

Nvidia never wanted to sell the 3080 RTX this year. They just wanted to pre-empt the PS5 and Xbox One X Series launch.

Yea that was pretty much it, they needed to be out before AMD. Most devs just open a small browser window with the captcha so the user can solve it manually, then the bot does the rest for ATC and checkout, still will be faster than humans.

You do know the card is about 25% faster than the 2080ti right? They claimed 2x 2080 performance which it also does not do.

The worst thing is there is just NO good communication coming from any level whatsoever.  Last night i got on the phone with BestBuy, the guy on the phone took 20 min to try and locate the card for me and let me know if there was stock to come back and find that he cant see anything in the system and said there is nothing physically there.

 

Call this morning and they tell me they sold out of their in store inventory in pre-orders on-line last night, PRE-ORDERS?!  Ive been checking the site for a few days now, pre-orders were never part of the equation, did they open pre-orders at like 3:00 AM or some shit?.  what the actual fuck, its so frustrating.

I know; I was just saying that in reference to how untrustworthy they are.
