    Unhappy 30 Series Founders Edition

    So I don't think there was any announcement posted at all, are the Founders Edition now going directly through Scan instead? I've been trying to get one of these for over a month now, as is likely with a lot of other people, and to have missed a restock today is just... yeah.

    Nvidia's "Notify Me" option has been useless, is there a way to be aware of restocks? Any bit of information would be nice, as nvidia has been as opaque as possible with this launch.

    We are receiving deliveries and fulfilling pre-orders. No free stock available.

    19/10/20 - As expected there were no new deliveries over the weekend so the outstanding pre-orders only reflects any cancellations. We have confirmed deliveries of RTX 3080 and 3090 arriving for EVGA, MSI and ZOTAC. We are trying to confirm all TBCs as soon as possible. As always we appreciate your support and patience.

    Then this is missing the latest information, as they sold Founders Edition 3080's via the Scan site on 19/10.

    AFAIK - the FE is only available from the NV store.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: 30 Series Founders Edition

    It looks like scan is handling FEs for now. If you keep an eye on the nvidia webpage, the link came up which redirected to scan's website on the Monday drop. The notify on nvidia's website is indeed useless. You can use a tool like distill to keep an eye on it though or follow partalert on twitter.

    Re: 30 Series Founders Edition

    From my understanding of it Scan are only responsible for taking payment and shipping

    You must follow the link from the nvidia store, once they are sold out, the URL disappears and is changed for the next drop.

    I'm pretty sure Scan are only providing the storefront as it were for these.

    I managed to pick up a 3070FE in last weeks drop to tidy me over until asus decide to actually send some 3090 strix's to the UK

    Has anyone got a feeling on frequency of 3080 FE drops? I keep checking, and following twitter feeds, but still no luck... I know, me and a thousand other people!

    this has been bouncing about on twitter for the groups trying to pick up the FE cards.

    There doesn't appear to be any direct pattern yet, just as and when

    Re: 30 Series Founders Edition

    Europe seem to get 3080 every thursday, I'd imagine we're supposed to too but cause of the ports being so broken shipments are way delayed. Looks like scan had 400+ 3060ti earlier this week though

    This will tell you when they have had cards in the past but it doesn't really help much with knowing when the next may be.

    Interesting spreadsheet, least it narrows it down from roughly 1pm to 3:30pm for drop times, reduces you to a couple of hours a day F5'ing

    Today's drop came pretty much out of the blue 1308 for 3080 and 3090. The website promptly crashed then didn't show a buy button and then was sold out. Must still be a lot of people after these!

    Re: 30 Series Founders Edition

    I got the option of a buy button but each time I clicked it I got an out of stock banner at the top of the screen, I was on the site about 13:09. So they were all gone within 2min.
