Most of the recent NVidia launches are the same. Initial low supply, bots and scalpers buy up all the supply in minutes and try to sell on auctions sites for huge mark-ups. This will go on for for a few months for each version of the card. 2080ti launch was the same. When the card supply finally normalizes and are more available, the bots and scalpers will eventually stop as they will no longer be able to make a profit off all the suckers that fall into their trap. It will probably be two to three months before we can easily get a 3000 series card. As for me, I have a 2080ti that I bought a few months after launch and has served me well. I'll probably get a RTX 3090 when the feeding frenzy is over and I can actually purchase a card.
