Nvidia's RTX 3070 will launch on October 15th - RTX 3080 Review Embargo Delayed

Late last night, Nvidia informed OC3D that the company had delayed the release of RTX 3080 reviews until September 16th, citing shipping delays and other issues related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

Ths delay is designed to help allow reviewers to get enough time to test their new graphics cards, as many have received RTX 3080 samples later than expected. PC enthusiasts can expect us to publish our RTX 3080 review on September 16th at 2 PM BST.  

Nvidia has also confirmed to us that their RTX 3070 graphics card will release on October 15th at 2 PM BST. With Nvidia's RTX 3070 promising RTX 2080 Ti-like performance for £469, you can be sure that this launch will be one to mindful of. 

At this time, the release dates of Nvidia's RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards appear to be unchanged. Only the RTX 3080's review date has been altered.

More BS. They announce a product, it lands with every reviewer and then they say that Covid has delayed it.

They did the exact same thing with Turing, too. So they could hide the gains between the 10 series and 20 series.

And there wasn't any Covid then.

Also, that power connector on that 3070 is awful.Quote

Yep, Nearly every reviewer has shown they have had their 3080's for over a week already.Quote

Yup and every single one of them have posted an unboxing.

I have never, in all of my years, witnessed so much hype and fact twisting with a launch as this. All of a sudden the 3080 has gone from being 80% faster than a 2080 to 125% etc. It's almost like some sort of Covid cabin syndrome has kicked in.

In reality? I think it's quite simple. They didn't know when AMD was going to respond. They sort of have, and now they want to hide their benchmarks until the day before you can order the card. Probably because they are worried that if people see the performance and power use now they will absolutely wait for AMD to show their cards.

So instead it's all smoke and mirrors.

I'm quite a humble guy, and tbh? I love being proved wrong. I do, because it makes me feel the miserable grumpy git I usually am. I will always hold my hands up to a screw up too. However? the sad fact is that every time a launch happens I am usually always right. I wish I wasn't tbh, as it just leaves an even worse taste in my mouth.

But going back before all of the hype and BS? 320w TDP is simply crazy. It really is. Just like, absolutely insane.Quote

I'm looking for at least 30% increase over my 1080Ti, if not I'll wait. However after seeing SoTTR on the Digital Foundry video running highest quality setting and still getting 60 FPS while RTX was on is worth the upgrade in my opinion. (FPS counter visible underneath the text on top left)Quote

to be honest everyone who believs nvidia and preorders just because they believe what jensen told.... is a moron.

if you have money to burn and be happy with a 3080 no matter what... fine.

but i have become very sceptical about nvidia over the past decade.
i buy only nvidia GPU´s.... because of cuda (i am not a gamer).
but i am not a blind fanboy.

also have a look at this moores law is dead video:
