    3000 founders edition cards UK

    Do we know if there will be more?
    I read that Nvidia wasn't selling them anymore on its own website for US and you would be able to get Fe cards from best buy there, but it didn't specify other regions.
    I know Scan did have the FE's listed but I can't find them anymore. Is it going to be just AIB boards available now?

    They drop from time to time but are gone in seconds. I hope they can get the stock situation under control within a few months.

    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    Scan are the UK distributor, so when nvidia release stock of FE cards, they go to scan and then listed on the nvidia website with a special link through to a unique page on Scan. As far as I'm aware the FE cards aren't limited run and should be manufactured throughout the life of the product, just keep watching the nvidia site (or one of the alert services) and be lucky.

    I didnt know there was more FE cards coming from Nvidia, I thought they were doing a launch batch and that was it..

    Surely if they are going to drop more FE cards then the AIB's are going to struggle selling cards that come close to the cost of the next model up's RRP...

    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    I highly doubt you'll be able to get your hands on one, there are silly amounts of bots looking for stock and snapping it up instantly.

    I tried to buy a 3060 Ti FE on launch day, sat on the "COMING SOON" page, refreshed to see "BUY NOW" and by the time I'd clicked the button, they were sold out.

    It's infuriating that people have nothing better to do than rip others off. I hope they sit on stocks of these cards and lose money on each one.

    There are certain alert sites. The part alert twitter account is quite a good one. It does have lots of rounds of captchas so hopefully that stopped most of the bots

    That's good news! It's not really that I want an Fe edition although the design isn't bad to look at its more cost. The AIB cards all seem to be a fair bit more at the minute. Maybe when the Fe boards are more available it will drive prices down. I hope

    Yep this happened to me too. It's really frustrating. In fact I got further on 3070 launch than I did 3060ti. Managed to get a 3070 in my basket and get to the buying page before it times out and made me start again and there was non left

    The stock on these cards runs out very quickly. You have to be very lucky to snag one.

    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    I managed to snag one in the most recent drop on Scan on Friday. The card arrived Sunday. Anecdotally there seemed to be a good number of FE cards in this drop.

    Still sold out fairly quickly. Wouldn't have been able to get it without the part alerts, I'd highly recommend joining up to one of the stock alert channels - still for now you're not going to be able to buy a card without them. Will sell my RX 6800 now!

    If you just all wait until they're more readily available, you'll get them at better prices, and you won't be supporting the system that rewards scalpers.

    There drops are so sporadic, I guess mostly down to the cards being shipped slow freight now and the UK docks being utterly broken. Part alert is probably about the only way you'll know about the drops happening.

    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    I'd also recommend the PartAlert but to use the Telegram or Dischord channel as I've found it to be really fast, and managed to snag a 3080 FE on 18th. They have a specific channel for FEs. I'd also recommend be logged into Scan as often as you can be (what I mean is for that drop there were other EU drops earlier/day before so made sure to keep logged into Scan) but the big part for me was to use Paypal, as I had one before but then my card got declined and then blocked by my bank for further online transactions - had to call them up to unblock it! I also had to jump through about 4 rounds of Captcha's, but still got one.

    Oh and last tip, if you're using Android set the notification for the specific Telegram or Dischord channel to something very distinct from your regular one - saves jumping for your phone at every alert.
