    Mate that is grim. You might get your card by 2022 at current shipment rates. Probably be better jumping ship when the other places starts taking orders again...

    If only we got updates on our purchases as often as you mods like to remind us of this rule.

    I’m sat here hoping that the fact that ocuk can offer next day pcs with msi cards means that they have a large stock of them for customers that have already preordered them.

    I guess my hopes of getting an email today saying my card is on its way will be dashed soon enough. :(

    I'm happy we got a place to vent for the last 2 and a half months. Reddit is full of build pics, I'd rather have the grumpy brits spinning conspiracy theories about OCUK.

    Genuinely think you might be the first EVGA shipped in the forum. Congratulations vanguard!

    I've explained this before. Nvidia allocate GPUs to both the retail and the system integration sectors and tell their partners where to send the stock. This stock was allocated by the partners for our SI business and I purchased it, not Gibbo. Nvidia and it's partners have hundreds of large scale system integration customers, of which we are one. These customers employ many thousands of people just for the building of said systems. To ignore those customers because the retail sector is so vocal and toxic makes absolutely no business sense.

    The fact that the stock that I receive is retail boxed is irrelevant. It's generally easier for the suppliers that way, so there are no "brown box" or OEM packaged cards available. It would be easier for us if there were. Nobody questions why PC Specialist, for example, are receiving stock for their SI business. Nobody is questioning why Scan are receiving stock for their SI business. So why should I be pulled over hot coals for keeping my SI business going?

    The simple and overarching fact is that my SI allocation is a small percentage of the overall RTX 3000 series supply. I think the only card where I've received even close to the stock that Gibbo has recently is the GTX 1660 Super, so I'm not responsible for Nvidia's crappy supply and neither is Gibbo.

    Well if such a small allocation why is retail not getting more than you??? and hiding numbers is just breeding contempt for the whole lot of OC.

    Hi Scotti, do you know if the Palit cards which were supposed to arrive will be shipped today?

    wow I didn't even realise that EVGA had started to send us stock. You might be right.

    Gibbo is on leave for a few days to do some decorating so I don't expect him to respond.
    I haven't seen any more Asus stock on the way but most of the time we only know a day or two in advance.

    do you really want an answer to this?

    the store in question has a delivery table which lays out the exact number of each 3080 model still remaining, when the next stock is expected (weeks in advance, not "the day before"), its shipment status and update it daily, as well as providing a short daily written update.

    i'm not sure how aware you are of the lack of communication that has gone on over here, but it's a stark contrast.

    They are. MSI have supplied Gibbo with hundreds of 3080s (both Ventus & Trio) for retail customers and supplied me with 50 Ventus cards. You'll see when the systems are finished how many we had.

    ScottiB, first of all, sincere thanks for talking about the situation, I can appreciate it's pretty vexxing for you. I think the only reason it's reared it's head again is due to lack of information. we get 0 updates on the official update thread about what's coming in and being shipped. As customers all we see is PC's available with cards we've ordered for next day delivery. We're told that there is no information, thus no shipments. Think it's just breeding resentment to see that you're obviously receiving shipments, and from our perspective, they're all going into SI stock as we're not told anything about retail.

    I think you need to get better contacts, everybody else gets info about their incoming stock at least a week in advance it seems.
