    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 :)

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

    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.
