The bad weather of the coming period does not only seem to be related to the choice of your clothing; also in video card world it will probably remain very cloudy for a while. Alternate has published its expectations for the first quarter of this year in a statement.
The first quarter ends with the end of March. The Dutch branch of the retailer says it has heard from Nvidia and partner manufacturers that the shortages are related to a lack of video chips and raw materials. This is in line with what we have heard from other sources so far, as it has been said for some time that TSMCs are suppliers with a serious shortage of abfsubstrates contend. Nvidia keeps throwing on big, persistent demand. Rising memory prices would also have an effect.
The shortages also appear to have a negative impact on older models and the lower positioned GTX video cards, Alternate writes that the supply of those models is also very poor. Recently we saw more or less the same in an analysis of the processor market. Demand for older products is increasing due to shortages of newer processors. At the bottom of this message you will find the full Alternate press release.
We have unfortunately heard from both the manufacturers and NVIDIA that the availability of the RTX 3000 series cards will continue to deteriorate in the first quarter of 2021. This is due to the poor availability of raw materials and NVIDIA chips, but also due to the Chinese New Year, which temporarily shuts down the factories.
Here is an overview of our expectations:
RTX 3090: very small deliveries (Few open customer orders)
RTX 3080: very little supply (Very many open customer orders)
RTX 3070: small deliveries (Few open customer orders)
RTX 3060 Ti: very little supply (Reasonably many open customer orders)
This means that the chance of an RTX 3080, especially for new orders, is virtually nil. The RTX 3070 and RTX 3090 will arrive in small quantities. The chance of availability for the RTX 3060 Ti will also be very low, especially with the popular models. Unfortunately, the supply is also poor for the earlier generations and the GTX series.
Despite the fact that the purchase prices of the products and the costs for transport have risen sharply, we naturally continue to deliver to our customers in order of order. Unfortunately, prices for new orders will continue to rise in the near future due to market forces.
We also want to let you know that we have made an update to our queue check tool. Because of this it may be that you have gone up or down a few places. We want to emphasize that we have not moved anyone in the queue, but have implemented an optimization. This creates a fairer picture of the number of video cards ordered in front of you.
