Being able to get hold of a graphics card from the latest generation of NVIDIA cards, the RTX 3000, became a nightmare for many and as the President’s car was hosting Mr. Marshall many had seen them happen, there was no way they could. ‘achieve it. one, since demand had exceeded consumer supply.
The thing has also worsened enormously with the amount of speculators surrounding the network of networks, using advanced techniques to be able to take as much stock as possible from the NVIDIA store. Which led to paranoia and suspicion that NVIDIA might be giving preference to mining farms over gamers.
But as if it was the multiplication of bread and peace, out of nowhere a series of NVIDIA cards materialized for the desperate people begging a miracle like this to have their RTX 3080, which they have. already abandoned for lost.
A container full of missing NVIDIA RTX 3080 appears
Out of nowhere, a container appeared with neither more nor less than half a million NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards without a destination in a South Korean port, which had not been registered by the authorities at that port. This has the consequence that it has not been opened and has not been processed.
The reason why these graphics cards had been left in the container and failed to reach customers and stores is due to the lack of adequate documentation from Samsung, since the story dates back to early August. in which one of the meters had not been marked by Samsung, causing the graphics cards they made for NVIDIA to sit around collecting dust all the time in an abandoned container in a port.
NVIDIA statements about this event
In the words of Jeff Fisher, NVIDIA vice president and head of the GeForce division:
We have been requesting this shipment from Samsung for months now. They kept telling us that they had left the factory, but they never gave us any proof that they had arrived at their destination.
When the graphics cards arrive in the hands of NVIDIA, they will be distributed appropriately to both stores and their online shoppers. Will that half a million RTX 3080s be lost and regained enough to meet demand or will we be in the same situation again after a short time?
We hope that if you were waiting to receive yours you will be lucky and enjoy your lost but rediscovered RTX 3080.
Update: We apologize for the information. He’s an innocent man.
