Where to buy the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti

Why are graphics cards out of stock?
If you’ve been on a hunt for a graphics card this year, you’ve likely noticed that most of them are out of stock right now. Why is this the case?
There is no simple answer to this, as multiple issues have made it difficult to find a new graphics card. Firstly, there’s a global chip shortage due to unprecedented demand during the pandemic. Manufacturing was also impacted by the Covid restrictions.
Many people have also been purchasing graphics cards in bulk for bitcoin-mining pursuits, although Nvidia has attempted to put measures in place to block such practises on their GeForce cards.
We’ve reached out to Nvidia to find out when they expect supply to return to normal. And hopefully, if you’re fast, you’ll still be able to secure your own Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti graphics card.
