I saw mention of a German reseller not even get 4% of their current orders.
every launch of every new GPU has always gone this way...why haven't they tried to better prepare and compensate by ensuring there is lots of stock shipped to their partners before letting it go live?
Exactly. All things considered under current circumstances, we shouldn't be too upset.Actually I don't believe that to be the case. Most GPU Launches I have seen there usually is ample stock (or at least better than what we've seen).
We have a massive amount of economic and personal hardship in a world greatly effected by a Pandemic.
This has disrupted production schedules, materials schedules, personnel losses due to attrition, logistics woe's the list goes on and on.
Plus, using Samsung for their 8nm node vs TSCM 7nm probably had some role to play as well. Not all on nVidia for supply issues, at least that's how I see it.
I think most other cards I've gotten close to or within a week or two of launch day.
Where art thou?

Yup got my card today. I mean of course, right when AMD releases their info. I'm fairly sure I would still go with Nvidia but I do wonder if we will see price cuts at all.
Or it will convince Nvidia to release a 3080ti come mid Jan so that I can use the evga step-up.
