The end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 is being especially difficult for everyone who wants to buy a new graphics card as chip shortages and cryptocurrency miners are making it really difficult to buy a new GPU for our computers.
This in addition to causing a great anger among the community is also giving rise to such chaotic situations like those that were seen yesterday in a store in Dallas, United States, that put on sale the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti that was launched yesterday on the market as well as a stock replacement of other models of graphics cards.
What happened before the center opened its doors was a real madness recorded by PrestonALewis (the most interesting is in the first 5 minutes of recording with minute 4 starting the race) with hundreds of people waiting for the store to open to the public to start running between pushes and dodging parked cars to try to occupy an advanced place in the queue, all in the middle of a pandemic with many people without masks (although they were outdoors) and crowded one with the other.
Of course, the store performance when organizing the opening of doors so that PC Gaming fans could acquire their graphics has been dire and we must be grateful for the good behavior of those who approached the center who, after the initial chaos, patiently waited their turn to try to acquire a chart … of which there would not be units for everyone.
3080 Ti, NVIDIA’s New Gaming Flagship
Just yesterday in Vandal we published our analysis with the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, the NVIDIA graphics that went on sale yesterday and that becomes the brand’s new flagship to play with more than 10% extra performance in games compared to the RTX 3080 and all the great technologies that we have already seen in this range such as real-time ray tracing or DLSS.
