NVIDIA is doing everything it can to fight bots and fake orders
The demand for RTX 3080 graphics cards is huge, but how real it is, and not fueled by speculators, it is difficult to say now. The interest in the graphics card is understandable – for just $ 700, the buyer gets a monster that is 30% better than the RTX 2080 Ti. The offer is so tasty that yesterday the resale on eBay reached 60 and 80 thousand dollars.
We already wrote yesterday that all digital retailers in the US have no graphics cards left for sale. But this applies not only to the American market. Even the official RTX 3080 Founder Edition has been taken apart on NVIDIA’s official website in all regions.
According to NVIDIA, the company was not ready for such a demand, which caused problems in the official store and some orders were not registered. In addition, the company is aware that some speculators use bots and other techniques to massively buy video cards. NVIDIA uses various tools to fight, including manually reviewing orders so that real gamers receive video NVIDIA is doing everything it can to fight bots and fake orders.
The company apologized to all customers for the inconvenience, while assuring that it and partners are actively engaged in the supply of the RTX 3080.
It’s hard to say when the situation will stabilize and prices will return to the recommended ones.
