Nvidia’s ongoing issues with GeForce RTX 2080 Ti availability continue today with Team Green confirming the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti general sale date has been pushed back a week.
Previously due to launch this coming Thursday, September 20th, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti won't be available from third-party sellers until September 27th.
“Wanted to give you an update on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti availability,” wrote Nvidia on its official forums. “GeForce RTX 2080 Ti general availability has shifted to September 27th, a one week delay. We expect pre-orders to arrive between September 20th and September 27th.”
Those who’ve pre-order from Nvidia’s official store can expect the first GeForce RTX 2080 Ti’s Ti ship within the next 10 days then, although anyone picking up the GPUs from third-party retailers won’t have their units ship until September 27th.
If you’re looking at picking up a GeForce RTX 2080 though, there shouldn’t be any issues. “There is no change to GeForce RTX 2080 general availability, which is September 20th,” Nvidia continued.
Despite previous claims that Nvidia is sat on a stockpile of millions of RTX 20 Series GPUs, it does appear as if there are some minor issues in the supply chain. Reviews of the GeForce RTX 2080 were due to go live today, but these have been pushed back to Wednesday due to problems with getting them in the hands of journalists. They’re both only minor delays, although a week can seem like an age when we’re waiting on new hardware we’ve splashed the cash on.
