Jensen Huang, CEO of NVIDIA, GTC (NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference), CEO of NVIDIA, said in his press release that they had predicted that the inventory of RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards would persist through the end of 2020.
“I am confident that demand will exceed all of our stocks later this year,” said Huang
“We experience situations that are not borne. One of them is the holiday season. Our situation was good at first, but suddenly we got the ampere factor. Not only that, we were also hit by the” ampere holiday factor “. Hence the Q4 -Season quite difficult for us, “added Huang
Huang also spoke a lot in the session to answer questions about the lack of GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090. In their press, he said that there was not a shortage of stock, but a great demand.
“The RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 have a demand issue, not a stock issue. The demand issue is very, very high than we expected, and our hopes are just high, not very, very high. “said Huang.
“Even if we had found out about all of the requests, I don’t think we could meet them all quickly. We try to meet all of these requests. Production was good, product delivery was fantastic, the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 sold out immediately, “added Huang.
NVIDIA also recently delayed the launch of the RTX 3070 to add stocks. Given that its performance could outperform the RTX 2080Ti at a lower price of $ 499 (or Rp 7.3 million in sales), we can assume that demand will be much higher than that of the RTX. 3080 and RTX 3090.
Huang’s thoughts on an inventory shortage are similar to what some media outlets in China have reported predicting the end of the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 by 2021. There have also been reports that third party graphics card manufacturers are making bundles that require buyers to purchase either the RTX 3080 or the RTX 3090. with certain motherboards to increase sales.
