The success of Nvidia’s first series of “Ampere” graphics cards — selling out in mere minutes — has now put its supply in great shortage for the remainder of the year.
Speaking to the press during a Q&A session to cover its GPU Technology Conference announcements, Nvidia‘s CEO Jensen Haung addressed supply concerns by saying “I believe that demand will outstrip all of our supply through the year,” meaning fans will most likely have to wait until 2021 to get hold of either the RTX 3080 or RTX 3090.
“Even if we knew about all the demand, I don’t think it’s possible to have ramped that fast,” Huang continued, responding to the two graphics cards selling out at a rapid pace. “We’re ramping really really hard. Yields are great, the product’s shipping fantastically, it’s just getting sold out instantly.”
