Major Danish Retailer Says It Has Only Received 4% of its RTX 3080 Orders

It seems that individual consumers aren’t the only ones having difficulty buying RTX 3080, 3090 and 3070 cards. Yesterday, major Danish retailer Proshop posted detailed metrics on just how many RTX 3000 series cards it’s ordered and how many it’s received. The result? Manufacturers have only sent the company 344 out of its 8,400 GeForce RTX 3080 orders. And it doesn’t get much better for the other models.

While Proshop confirmed that it’s got another 123 RTX 3080 cards on the way, 344 cards is still not nearly enough to satisfy the 3,435 units that customers have ordered from its would-be stock of 8,400. In fact, it’s just 10% of what Proshop needs.

The RTX 3090 data only shows a marginally brighter picture, but more so due to lower customer demand than greater supply. Here, Proshop has received 78 of its 1,905 total orders, which means it’s currently able to fill 27% of its 283 customer orders. It’s also got another 55 units on the way.

As for the RTX 3070, which hasn’t yet launched, Proshop is still facing a supply shortage. It’s currently only got 25 out of its 3,580 ordered units, with 196 more on the way. Still, as the card has yet to become available for purchase, it doesn’t have to worry about meeting any customer orders quite yet. Here's hoping that the RTX 3070 launch delay helps give the retailer the time it needs to be more prepared when the card releases.

“Our category manager is in daily contact with both Nvidia and card manufacturers,” Proshop wrote about the shortage. “Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and Inno3d.” 

It’s great to see a retailer being so open with its data, but we wish it painted a better picture. As things stand, it seems like even if you’ve been able to successfully order an RTX 3000 series card, you might not be seeing it any time soon.

“Unfortunately, we cannot state your place in the order queue” Proshop added.

This also places greater scrutiny on the secondary market, as we've recently learned that an MSI subsidiary was caught selling RTX 3000 series cards at marked-up prices on eBay. And yet, MSI is far from having fulfilled all of Proshop's orders.

    This launch of the 3000 series cards has been hilariously bad.

    I'd say they're just seeing far more demand than anyone anticipated. Amazon said they saw more traffic for the 3080 launch than they get on Black Friday. That is absolutely insane and nobody could have predicted this.

    In this particular instance for this article, I'd say that in this situation where there's only so many cards to go around that the big boy retailers are getting theirs first. Proshop might be big, but they're certainly no BestBuy or Newegg.com.

    ....

    I don't know where you get you tech news from, but this ways predicted months ago. As a side note at least NVIDIA should have known as it is exactly what happened with the 20 series, this time prices are even lower so I would say everybody could have predicted this.

    Medical supplies and PPE, video cards and next gen gaming console shortages . Is it a stretch to say that no matter the industry, production logistics and the supply chain really aren't what we think they are?

    AMD don't have to worry about BN2 being the fastest (within reason) they just have to be able to supply.

    We are talking about a country with less than 6 million people. And a major retailer in their country decided to take pre orders.
    So I'm pretty sure people in neighboring countries also ordered from them. A safe bet with a pre order from a reputable company. At normal retail price.
    Now they are suprised they can not get all the cards they pre sold???
    OEM, Boutique System builders and much larger retail chains will get the bulk of available cards.
    Us upgraders will have to keep trying.

    I will be upgrading this generation, but I make myself wait 6 months or so before amajor upgrade.
    I'm slightly behind everyone else( who cares) but early adopters have found all the bugs and drivers have matured.
    When you buy a new piece of equipment, and put it close to 100% load from day one, stability is top priority.

    It wasn't Amazon, it was Newegg:

    And, how much of that traffic was actual people, versus scalp-bots?

    Also, how long did that peak traffic last compared to black friday? My guess, they would have taken few data points and compared to traffic on a black friday, Knowing there were bots and gamers (who generally are good at ordering stuff online), its a no big deal/surprise.
