The other day we reported that in Europe, GeForce RTX 30xx Founders Edition video cards were missing from NVIDIA branded stores. Some sources claimed that this was due to the company’s discontinuation of reference video cards. But these reports turned out to be false, as the cards appeared on the NVIDIA website again and NVIDIA confirmed that their disappearance from the list was caused by a technical error in the website caching and was not intentional.
However, although NVIDIA has republished its Founders Edition accelerator models, they are still not available to buy, like any other RTX 30 series model from most retailers. Ampere video cards are still in extremely high demand from both gamers and crypto-raters. The situation is aggravated by the high activity of dealers.
One of the main advantages of NVIDIA RTX Founders Edition graphics cards is that they are one of the few models that actually sell for the company’s recommended prices, while partner accelerators are usually available at very high prices. NVIDIA cannot ignore its own price level.
The latest NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards are expected to be difficult to acquire until summer 2021. By the way, in conditions of shortage and high demand, the American store Newegg even decided to sell scarce processors and video cards through a lottery to fight against dealers.
