NVIDIA postponed the start of sales of GeForce RTX 3070 for two weeks
If the difficulties with the supply of GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 video cards could still be attributed to excessive demand, then problems with capacitors on the first batches of video cards clearly worked against the reputation of NVIDIA. Under these circumstances, the company decided to postpone the start of sales of the GeForce RTX 3070 from October 15 to October 29.

The corresponding appeal to the audience of game lovers on the pages of NVIDIA's own website began with a phrase about the rapid increase in production of GeForce RTX 3070 video cards. The company said that it listened to the wishes of consumers to increase the size of the first batch of new video cards delivered to retail chains by the beginning of sales. It was decided to postpone the start date of sales of the GeForce RTX 3070 from mid-October to the 29th day, exactly two weeks.

NVIDIA did not miss the opportunity to remind that at the recommended price of $499, the new product will be able to compete with the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which at the time of its debut was more than twice as expensive. Its predecessor in the face of GeForce RTX 2070 new product exceeds the average by 60 %. Unfortunately, even a few days after the start of sales of the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090, customers have to face both a shortage of video cards and an abundance of speculative offers. If the GeForce RTX 3070 debuts at the end of October, the announcement of the rumored GeForce RTX 3060 Ti will also be postponed to a later date, so as not to create competition between them.
