NVIDIA has just announced that the retail launch of its GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card has been pushed back to the end of October. The announcement comes just weeks after the launch of the GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards which had severely limited quantities at launch and to make sure that it isn't the case with the RTX 3070, NVIDIA has updated its schedule.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Retail Launch Now A Day After AMD's Radeon RX 6000 Series Unveil
As per the latest schedule, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 would now be available for retail on the 29th of October. This is almost a 2 weeks delay compared to the previous launch day of 15th. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 specifications and prices remain unchanged but it looks like users who were planning to get the GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card on launch should now just wait to see what competition has to offer as AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series would be unveiled just a day prior to the retail launch.
Not sure what to make of this move. It could be seen as ballsy or desperate.
My guess? They're having supply issues and want to there to be more time to have more product in store for launch, since they will likely sell out quickly and give a big opening to AMD.
That's just my guess.
