NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti & RTX 3060 Supply Rumored to Decrease in September

The shipments of NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti & RTX 3060 graphics cards are expected to fall 50% in September compared with the first 20 days of August according to a user on the Board Channels Forums. The forum post notes that board partners are expecting lower shipments until late September when supply is expected to slightly improve. This rumor has been corroborated by VideoCardz who claims that the reduced deliveries can be attributed to various factories across China being forced to close or reduce capacity due to local COVID outbreaks. We don't know if this shortage will affect only certain board partners or assembly lines and the possible changes to pricing and availability.

Did the user on that forum provide any specific documentation that would give credence to what they say? I wouldn't really call this news unless you can provide something concrete.

This.

"One guy on a forum says" is not a credible source. Please do not stoop to the level of just quoting random threads across the internet as industry news.

TPU is better than this. I hope.

No interest to spend 1000 euro on videocard.

My comment was genuine, as investors will factor these events into the anticipated price and will always be ahead of the curve.

They did not. They just moved to another location. If anything, it made it less centralized.

And with the 2nd leg of crypto bull run, they are expecting GPUs to become scarce again. Not until ETH 2.0 rolls out or crypto blow off top commits and crypto winter comes.

I think most all the cards AMD/Nvidia are being bought out from company's that want to sell you a fully built PC because that market was dead and it's just a way back

It should be noted that this info was cited from ITHome and VideoCardz. So let's not give @Uskompuf too much grief..

So it's gonna be 1000$ instead of 800$ for the cheapest shitty models, huh? :laugh: No big deal, I can wait another year

Sure am glad now that I didn't get a GPU when I couldn't buy one good times ahead.

Not with cards about the same performance as a 1060; people will forget the launch even happened!

Combo that with the fact that they will be just as supply-constrained as AMD is (both use TSMC,) I don;'t have much hope.

Not true, as long as they're priced right, people will gobble them up! This is a great time for Intel to enter the market!

Oh yeah, because you can totally buy a 6600 XT a week after launch for MSRP.. NOT.

www.amazon.com/s?k=6600+xt&gclid=Cj0KCQjwg7KJBhDyARIsAHrAXaHRspdg5fjPqrtgl8sD0FyQgAwvg14HwRfZQzt1_URo2HozMtcdIx8aAusFEALw_wcB&hvadid=534543820005&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9007848&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=8615725711371669329&hvtargid=kwd-816935486602&hydadcr=7501_11110892&tag=googhydr-20&ref=pd_sl_575ggo4bnz_e

This is juts as pointless a graphics card launch as the 6600 XT: even using such a small chip, the availability out of TSMC is shit.

Have you seen some of the prices on 1060s?




If they roll out a 1060 that would be a massive win.

Yes I have. have you seen the prices on tiny 6600 XT two weeks after launch?

www.amazon.com/s?k=6600+xt&gclid=Cj0KCQjwg7KJBhDyARIsAHrAXaHRspdg5fjPqrtgl8sD0FyQgAwvg14HwRfZQzt1_URo2HozMtcdIx8aAusFEALw_wcB&hvadid=534543820005&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9007848&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=8615725711371669329&hvtargid=kwd-816935486602&hydadcr=7501_11110892&tag=googhydr-20&ref=pd_sl_575ggo4bnz_e

The 1060s are harder to find because Pascal has been officially discontinued for years now, but when your cheapest offering is $700 for the new hotness, then you have no hope for Intel magically fixing any supply issues for you (they both source from the same shared pot of 7nm chips as AMD, Sony and MS)

It's definitely not going to be magic... and that wasn't the point of my comments. The current environment will help the GPU take hold and sell the quantity that is needed to make it a 'success.'

Intel is also on a push to build local fabs: Intel: Upcoming US Fab Will Be a Small City, to Cost $60 to $120 Billion | Tom's Hardware (tomshardware.com)

So 3-5 years before anything magical will happen, but the environment is perfect for them to launch their initial GPUs which will undoubtedly be horrible and would have gotten absolutely destroyed in a normal year.
