    It probably depends on what brand your after. If it's Asus, MSI or EVGA, then don't hold your breath - the queues are either long or have little movement....or both. I can't see those queues being cleared for 4 months. The rest are either less popular or are moving quicker, so they might come back in sooner.

    But then again, it seems OCUK's plan of securing lots of orders to put them a better position to secure stock, kind of back fired... so maybe they won't do it again.

    Im hoping I get my Palit 3080 from OcUK before Cyberpunk. Im pos 18 in the Gaming Pro 3080 and they have a "small" amount coming in this week. And according to Gibbo small is 10-30 units. So im crossing everything hoping they get enough in.

    I booked the 10th and 11th off work for Cyberpunk so if I get my 3080 before it then I will be happy as f**k about it. I mean my 2070 Super will do but if I get my 3080 i think ill cry tears of happiness at this point.

    Hey there - so my 3080 finally arrived (hurrah!). Wasn't it supposed to come with a copy of the new Watch Dogs?

    I ordered my graphics card on launch day (about an hour after a friend who got his digital code), but have not seen one. Any idea?

    Thanks

    Apparently they have now given the codes to the first 1000 cards shipped not the first 1000 cards ordered, even if you got it on your order, it means nothing.

    The lack of updates from here is laughable. What's with the constant news of shipping from people on certain cards yet no update from Gibbo of them ever even coming in? ie. The zotac for example, and the MSI trio's last week along with others. This company is a joke.

    I really don't think they care, wouldn't be surprised if they've just stopped trying to get them just because of the way people are ripping in to them[reviews etc]

    Even if they had any codes left, the Watch Dogs redemption period ended yesterday so the code would be useless.

    Ocuk would be mental to do this, I mean this must already be impacting sales, but if what I’m understanding your saying is that OCUK are blaming the customers for purchasing something they allowed preorder/orders on #ocuklogic

    Just seems strange that supply has been worse the longer we go and other places seem to be getting a lot more stock, they are either not trying or they are not the big shot company they claim to be.

    The fact that there are more 3090's available makes me wonder if nVidia are hoping people will just buy them instead, so they can make more money. I do not blame OcUK for what has happened, or how it has been handled. They are caught between a rock and a hard place. Whatever they did to try and alleviate the issue, there would be people yelling at them about it.

    At this point, having tried to get a 6800XT, i'll be trying for a 6900XT.

    @Gibbo don't suppose you'd let me buy one of the 6800XT's you have? You said you had a delivery of some, but not enough to be worth putting on sale given the demand. it is my birthday after all. you'd let me buy one right? PM me! I promise I won't post about it if you do :D (it's worth a try, right?)
