    344 cards for 5.8M people scales to 450,000 cards for the Earth population of 7.8B people.

    But those 344 cards are just for one single retailer, and it's hard to imagine that Proshop is the only Danish retailer who received 3080s.

    10 such retailers would make it 4.5 million cards worldwide. They are selling like hotcakes :)

    The fact that they ordered 8000+(3400+ customer orders) cards and got only 344, makes me think your estimations are wrong. No offence :D

    None taken.
    Cos I am not giving any estimations. Just numbers. Danish/Proshop numbers scaled to Earth population. That's all :)

    Without some kind of comparable figures from previous series releases, these figures are difficult to put into perspective.

    We have numerous etailers and AIBs, some on record, some anonymously (knowing how vindictive is internet mob) saying that 3080 demand has been unprecedented, surpassing entire Black Friday traffic.

    But loonies don't want to hear that :)

    I would say it's a 99% paper launch, but paper launch indeed. I just cannot agree that it is a 100% paper launch as I type this from the machine a 3090 is installed in, and I am not a Youtube reviewer OR a hardware web site journalist. I actually bought it on launch day... THAT said, only 2 were sold on launch day from the source I got mine at.

    I'm a regular guy like the rest of y'all. I just lucked out, but I'm not the only one. But we are a small, small group still, and sadly so. So I won't balk at labeling this launch a 99% paper launch, but my own card prevents me from agreeing it was 100% paper launch.

    I would be happier if more people were getting cards though, as long as market penetration remains low like this, game devs have less motivation to optimize existing games for Ampere. New games will have plenty of optimization, but existing stuff is really optimized for Turing and previous architectures with the single I/O shader units opposed to the new "dual unit" shader units.

    This has an add on effect of leaving Ampere owners more vulnerable to CPU bottlenecking that in game and driver optimizations might alleviate. The recent CPU dependency reduction update to Microsoft Flight Simulator is a good example, though maybe over the top example as well, lol.

    How the hell can a multi billion dollar company not be able to make their flagship hardware? I mean really? And we are going to let them acquire arm? They can't even make a video card.

    Well get ready for the real nightmare when you can only get nvidia founders at best buy.Getting the 3070 will be almost impossible in a two weeks.

    I remember the 6800s having a shortage, but this is beyond st...id...

    I hope I can buy a card when it's 3085, 7nm edition

    We? You make it sound like we have any say in the matter. That is for regulators and lawyers to decide, not us. Corporate mergers are not a democratic process.

    Did they? I don't remember that, I remember getting my 6800GT super easily at Best Buy, walked in, grabbed one off the shelf, paid for it, walked out with it in hand. In fact I think that was my last ever AGP card, I think?

    I think the 30 series is dead and will be discontinued soon as they move on to 30 Super or 7nm TSMC 40 series with higher clocks and lower TDP.

    The news of the switch away from samsung messes up the 30 series launch even more, the samsung 30 series are great cards lets get that out of the way first.
    Anyone still sitting on a 2080ti or looking to upgrade from whatever card should surely wait for the refresh, and this time be very aware of the bots. Next time i buy new gpu gonna first research using bots /bounce alerts, this is the time were living in now folks.
    All-in-all really bad show from the green team.

    If i'm still working in March and not dead by exhaustion that to me sounds like a fine time for a new card, something around the £700 mark would do.
    I could see a week before 3080 launch that my money saved for one (£770) would be better spent elsewhere, at least if i was wanting to enjoy my fortnights holiday stress free.
    I couldn't be happier with my new card (2080ti) and i'm willing to use dlss in CP2077 until march, hoping for some Witcher 3 RT news by then, damn that's gonna be sweet.
    I'm happy for all the new 30 series owners, and for those with patience to wait for 7nm, for me whenever the time is here then it's on, so March, around £700 and whatever can best do RT in the games i play.
