Amid the worldwide GPU shortage, Nvidia is reportedly building up a considerable amount of stock to meet the initial demand for RTX 3050 graphics cards.
According to board channelOf course, Nvidia is apparently set to “tighten distribution” for the January 27 launch of its upcoming budget GeForce RTX 3050 video card.
As Told By VideoCardz, stock quantities for the RTX 3050 being produced could exceed supply levels for both the RTX 3060 and 3060 Ti. However, the report does not confirm whether the gap is linked to the existing stockpile or the supply on the day of launch. That said, ‘first batch’ is mentioned in the original forum post.
In any case, the news of increased stock supply will be welcome news for many consumers who have been waiting to get their hands on GPUs. Other Nvidia GPUs sell out almost immediately as gamers, resellers and crypto miners race to acquire the video card, which has become one of the most coveted hardware products in recent memory due to scarcity.
About 100 people waited for hours – some waited upwards of 20 hours – to tell how dire the situation was last year – To secure the RTX 3000 graphics card,
Of course, we’ll have to wait until January 27th to see if it will follow the same launch pattern as other GPU releases (largely due to scalpers and bots being sold out within minutes) or if there’s actually a decent amount of stock. Quantity is will not expire immediately.
Make no mistake, there will inevitably be a lot of interest in the RTX 3050. Its price tag of $250 makes it an attractive entry-level GPU, and so scalpers will be eager to secure their purchase because they know they can turn a profit on third-party marketplaces like eBay.
As for the card itself, the RTX 3050 was announced last week during CES 2022 alongside the flagship RTX 3090 Ti. It comes with 2560 CUDA cores, a boost clock of 1.78GHz, 8GB of GDDR6 memory, and a 128-bit memory bus. The GPU, which is based on the Ampere architecture, will also have 2nd-gen ray tracing cores, 3rd-gen tensor cores, and DLSS compatibility.
With regard to future stock levels for other Nvidia GPUs, the company ensured that the inventory for its GPUs showed signs of improvement during the second half of 2022. To meet the upcoming demand, Nvidia entered into additional long-term commitments with manufacturers, along with spending agreements worth billions.
Either way, the current GPU crunch has resulted in record revenue for Nvidia. tech giants Reported revenue of $7.10 billion For the most recent fiscal quarter in 2021, that represents a massive 50% increase from 2020.
