    If you up prices enough the stock situation will certainly improve.

    Well mine is different story.

    Weeks before I preordered MSI RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio, I struggled to searched for GPU stock channels on discord and then I finally preordered it on 28 October 2020. I finally managed found and joined StockDrops channel on discord on 7 November 2020 but never saw a single 3080 in stock after clicked notifications instantly so I thought it must be sold out instantly after read posts on reddit about 3080 and RX 6800 stocks sold out in 5 seconds, I already had everything logged in, delivery address ready etc. Joined StockRadar about a week later on 14 November 2020 found same thing happened with StockDrops never saw a single 3080 in stock after clicked about 50 notifications instantly. On 1st week of December I joined Part Alert but found it nuisance with so many EU notifications but very few UK notifications and I left Part Alert a day later. I noticed StockDrops had very few 3080 notifications and visited their discussion on discord found many people posted links but it never went into notifications. I became incredible very angry and frustrated with StockDrops admin and moderator Near [EU] after they never send out 361 links to notifications that included 6 3080 Suprim X links over the last 3 weeks that never been manually posted on notifications. I realised both StockDrops and StockRadar was completed waste of time after used near 2 months. I searched after a min and found UK Stock Alert and joined in surprised to found channel was created only few weeks ago on 7 December 2020, I was amazed they had 104 3080 notifications through 7 to 24 December with 13 3080 Suprim X notifications. When I received first notification at 5.05AM and I was gobsmacked to see 3080 was in stock for the first time since joined discord after 2 months. 2nd notification came at 9.03AM but it was out of stock instantly, I was busy at 11.54AM saw MSI RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio notification and clicked instantly and saw Suprim X notification above it. I was freaked out after almost missed it, panicked and frantically clicked it, my body shaken and heart pounded when I saw only 10 in stock.

    Jesus what a unbelievable day today. 13 Suprim X notifications compared to none on StockDrops. StockDrops is pathetic joke and complete waste of time.

    I hope Suprim X will come with free Call of Duty code.

    See, I told you trying to snag one via Discord etc was a far better option than waiting in a dumb queue with new stock being sold over the heads of queuers to new buyers. It only took me 2 days to get the 3060ti I wanted.


    Enjoy your new card!

    Anybody know when realistically a 3060ti will be readily available at retail?

    If you’re after a particular card then you’re going to find it difficult. Try one of the stock checker discord’s but you may be waiting several weeks and will likely pay more than RRP.

    It’s the truth dude. There’s not much you can do if that’s the only card you want

    Been waiting awhile for a 3080, but ultimately gave up and snagged a 3070 in the recent drops. All things considered I'm coming from a 780, and not trying to play something like Cyberpunk at 4K so really no need for anything more powerful....
