NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 hit the market yesterday but many gamers were astonished that stock sold out almost instantaneously. Armies of F5 pushers were greeted by "out of stock" messages almost as soon as the card was available or order.

NVIDIA claims they saw unprecedented demand and blames bots and scalpers for snatching up inventory. There were rumors about low supply due to yield issues with Samsung's 8nm node and poor availability for several more months. But YouTube channel Moore's Law is Dead (MLID) claims something else is going on. Basically, MLID heard from its sources that the $699 GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition is a low-volume loss leader.

The new cooling solution of the Founders Editions is very expensive to manufacture and MLID claims it's not NVIDIA's intention to sell many of these cards because they want to keep margins very high. MLID believes NVIDIA's goal was to win back the hearts of gamers, by launching a card with an excellent price/performance ratio. Launch reviews were excellent but with supply so low few people will be able to buy these $699 models.

Supply will reportedly be kept artificially low until the end of October. MLID writes NVIDIA's add-in board partners will be able to flood the market with Ampere-based cards by the end of October. But there will be a catch. These cards will be significantly more expensive than the Founders Editions, and models sold close to the $699 price mark will feature coolers that are far inferior to the cooling solution of the Founders Edition:
Therefore, I think this is Nvidia’s Ultimate Play: Intentionally causing an initial dearth of Ampere stock, allowing “supply and demand” to inflate the street price of Ampere when those beautiful $699 Founders cards instantly sell out, and then ultimately forcing AIBs to sell most of their models well above MSRP due to the required BOM Cost-Downs…that will be in ample supply once the street price is elevated.
As always, take this with a grain of salt. We'll have to wait and see if this is true.

MLID also has some fresh speculation about AMD's Big Navi lineup. It's said that AMD's fastest model will likely at least be within spitting distance of the GeForce RTX 3080 in terms of rasterization performance. Ray tracing performance is expected to be better than NVIDIA's Turing but not as good as Ampere. Performance/Watt is expected to be good.

If you can get your hands on a GeForce RTX 3080, you can also get a free copy of Watch Dogs: Legion as this game is part of the launch bundle. Interestingly, Gigabyte’s Watch Dogs Legion code redemption website lists various video cards that haven't been officially announced yet.

VideoCardz reports Gigabyte thus confirmed the existence of the rumored GeForce RTX 3080 20GB card, as well as a GeForce RTX 3070 with 16GB and a GeForce RTX 3060 with 8GB. Some of these models may have a SUPER or Ti suffix. It's believed these models will launch after AMD's Big Navi launch.
The product list features GeForce RTX 3060 (S – SUPER?) 8GB model, GeForce RTX 3070 16GB (S- SUPER?) and Geforce RTX 3080 20GB (also labelled S). It remains unclear if the S means a SUPER series, or as our sources tend to believe, the Ti models.

The GeForce RTX 3080 20GB model is not expected to feature a higher core count than the just-released 10GB model, thus we are unsure if the product code is not final or the card might actually feature 3080 Ti or 3080 SUPER branding.

EK Waterblocks is now taking pre-orders for its first waterblocks for the NVIDIA Ampere GPU family. Offered in four versions, these blocks range from 149.90EUR to 164.90EUR depending on the materials used. The EK-Quantum Vector RTX 3080/3090 Water Blocks are exclusively compatible with some third-party RTX 30 series cards, they are not compatible with the Founders Editions. Backplates are also offered for 36.90EUR (black) and 43.90EUR (nickel).

A compatibility list can be seen below. The company says models for STRIX and TUF series cards will follow within a couple of days. A version for NVIDIA's Founders Editions is also in the works, EK promises they're working on something really special for those cards.

EK-Quantum Vector RTX 3080/3090 Water Blocks
EK®, the leading computer cooling solutions provider, is ready to offer its premium high-performance GPU water block for reference PCB layout NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX™ 30 Series graphics cards. The brand new water block is aptly named EK-Quantum Vector RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB, and it is very important to keep in mind that this reference design water block is not meant for Founders Edition graphics cards – those will get their own, separate, specifically designed EK water blocks.

“This latest graphics card launch was no different from the last one. The information that was available to us prior to the launch was very scarce. With new information surfacing each hour, we had made some drastic decisions that we thought were the best choice for both our customers and our partners. Over the night, we have completely redesigned our 2nd generation Vector water blocks aimed for reference layout graphics cards,” said Edvard König, the founder of EK.

This also means the water blocks that were showcased in the EK webshop until today are no longer relevant, along with the pricing that has been updated.

An EK Water Block for Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and 3090 Graphics Cards
The new water block is purpose-designed with a much thicker 11.2mm copper base to clear the tall capacitors on most reference design graphics cards. This gives the water block advantage on the market of having a clean design and a wider compatibility list, without sacrificing any coolant flow restriction.

These 2nd generation Vector water blocks directly cool the GPU, VRAM, and the VRM (voltage regulation module) as cooling liquid is channeled right over these critical areas. The water block is in contact with MOSFETs and chokes to maximize cooling and minimize the chances of coil whine, unlike some products that are currently available on the market.

These newly developed water blocks feature optimized flow paths that reduce hydrodynamic instabilities and vortexing (dead spots) inside of them. Additionally, this new design allows the terminal to be screwed directly onto the copper cold plate of the GPU block, making it more rigid and reducing the chances of damaging the water block.

An Open Split-Flow cooling engine design is implemented, which proved to be a superior solution for GPU water blocks. It is characterized by low hydraulic flow restriction, meaning it can be used with weaker water pumps or pumps running on low-speed settings, and still achieve top performance. The jet plate and fin structure geometry have been optimized to provide even flow distribution with minimal losses and optimal performance when used in any given coolant flow orientation, again, unlike some products that are currently available on the market.

The fin array is populated by 27 microfins with 0.5 mm wide microchannels that provide optimal cooling performance, without unnecessary flow restrictions or clogging hazards. The machining time of cold plates for these new reference design water blocks is almost twice as long compared to any other EK water block ever made.

The base of the block is CNC-machined out of nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while its top is CNC-machined either out of glass-like cast Acrylic or durable black POM acetal. To cater to the old-school liquid cooling enthusiasts, EK is still offering bare copper models of these water blocks, which are not equipped with any RGB effects whatsoever. The 2nd generation Vector GPU water blocks also feature plexi and acetal terminals that match the top cover material. The watertight sealing is ensured by high-quality EPDM O-rings, while brass standoffs are already pre-installed and allow for a safe and easy installation procedure.

Current Compatibility List for EK-Quantum Vector RTX 3080/3090 Water Blocks:
  • Gainward GeForce RTX 3080 Phoenix
  • Gainward GeForce RTX 3080 Phoenix GS
  • Gainward GeForce RTX 3090 Phoenix
  • Gainward GeForce RTX 3090 Phoenix GS
  • GALAX GeForce RTX 3080 EX Gamer

  • PNY GeForce RTX 3090 24GB XLR8 Gaming EPIC-X RGB Triple Fan Edition (VCG309024TFXPPB)

    We recommend that you refer to the EK Cooling Configurator for a precise compatibility match. We are checking compatible graphics cards and adding them to the database daily.

    D-RGB Lighting on EK-Quantum Vector RTX 3080/3090 D-RGB Water Block
    The aesthetic end-piece is housing the addressable D-RGB LED strip. This water block boasts a total of 12 individually addressable RGB LEDs, and it is compatible with popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. The arrow marking on the 3-pin D-RGB LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB (addressable) header.

    Backplate for the 3080/3090 Water Block
    EK recommends the purchase of a retention backplate, which improves the overall aesthetics of your graphics cards, and also provides additional passive cooling for the GPU core, VRAM on the 3090 cards, and backside of the printed circuit board VRM section.

    Citing market sources, DigiTimes claims AMD is on track to hit a laptop processor marketshare of 20 percent this year. This would be a record for the company. The Ryzen APUs are able to capture marketshare from Intel but the latter still reigns supreme.
    AMD is making major gains in the notebook processor market in 2020, thanks to strong demand from the education sector. Notebook vendors having been seeking more support from AMD to meet the needs from the education sector, as a result of shortages of Intel processors. Strong demand for notebooks is expected to last, but shipments have been undermined by shortages of components, such as PWM ICs, which in turn have prevented notebook battery makers from fulfilling all orders. Tight supply of 8-inch foundry capacity has been blamed for the component shortages, and Foxconn is looking to secure more 8-inch foundry support. It reportedly is seeking to take a stake in Malaysia-based Silterra.

    Tom's Hardware argues the launch of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 series is aggravating PSU shortages. The site notes power supply production was severely disrupted earlier this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, at a time when demand for desktop PCs unexpectedly increased. Higher PSU prices are expected and the increased maximum power draw of NVIDIA's Ampere GPU family isn't good news if you need a new PSU right now.
    Since the Nvidia Ampere Keynote, we've known the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are going to be absolute power suckers, Nvidia itself recommends a bare minimum of a 750W power supply for the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, but you'll need larger power supplies for some systems. Our testing backs that up, too; we observed up to a 335W average power draw from just the 3080. This means many of us will need new power supplies, unfortunately right during a PSU shortage that has sent pricing skyward on some models (more on that shortly).

    Those hoping to get their hands on a GeForce RTX 3080 will have been disappointed yesterday as stock ran out extremely fast. NVIDIA's webshop and e-stores around the world were hit by massive demand. In a statement, NVIDIA apologizes for the inconvenience.
    “This morning we saw unprecedented demand for the GeForce RTX 3080 at global retailers, including the NVIDIA online store. At 6 a.m. pacific we attempted to push the NVIDIA store live. Despite preparation, the NVIDIA store was inundated with traffic and encountered an error. We were able to resolve the issues and sales began registering normally.

    To stop bots and scalpers on the NVIDIA store, we’re doing everything humanly possible, including manually reviewing orders, to get these cards in the hands of legitimate customers.

    Over 50 major global retailers had inventory at 6 a.m. pacific. Our NVIDIA team and partners are shipping more RTX 3080 cards every day to retailers.

    We apologize to our customers for this morning’s experience.”
    The company didn't specify how many cards were available at launch. According to the rumor mill, supply of NVIDIA's Ampere GPUs may be quite limited this year due to production issues. NVIDIA's $1,499 GeForce RTX 3090 will follow on September 24th.

    NVIDIA is pretty much waving goodbye to its SLI multi-GPU technology. For the past couple of years now, both AMD and NVIDIA have pretty much abandoned multi-GPU technology. The next step for NVIDIA is to stop creating new SLI driver profiles. Starting on January 1st, 2021, the GPU giant will no longer be adding new SLI driver profiles to its GeForce driver releases.

    The green team argues that the DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs support multi-GPU technology and that game developers should switch to native implementations. Whether game developers will bother to implement this in their code remains to be seen. With the arrival of the Ampere generation, the only SLI-capable GPU is the $1,499 GeForce RTX 3090. It's really becoming a very small market.
    With the emergence of low level graphics APIs such as DirectX 12 and Vulkan, game developers are able to implement SLI support natively within the game itself instead of relying upon a SLI driver profile. The expertise of the game developer within their own code allows them to achieve the best possible performance from multiple GPUs. As a result, NVIDIA will no longer be adding new SLI driver profiles on RTX 20 Series and earlier GPUs starting on January 1st, 2021. Instead, we will focus efforts on supporting developers to implement SLI natively inside the games. We believe this will provide the best performance for SLI users.

    Existing SLI driver profiles will continue to be tested and maintained for SLI-ready RTX 20 Series and earlier GPUs.

    For GeForce RTX 3090 and future SLI-capable GPUs, SLI will only be supported when implemented natively within the game.

    What DirectX 12 games support SLI natively within the game?
    DirectX 12 titles include Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Civilization VI, Sniper Elite 4, Gears of War 4, Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation, Strange Brigade, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Zombie Army 4: Dead War, Hitman, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Battlefield 1, and Halo Wars 2.

    What Vulkan games support SLI natively within the game?
    Vulkan titles include Red Dead Redemption 2, Quake 2 RTX, Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation, Strange Brigade, and Zombie Army 4: Dead War

    How about creative and other non-gaming applications — will those still support multiple GPUs?
    Yes, many creative and other non-gaming applications support multi-GPU performance scaling without the use of SLI driver profiles. These apps will continue to work across all currently supported GPUs as it does today.

    Per NVIDIA – NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs deliver a huge leap forward in performance, enabling gamers, creators, and developers to experience entirely new worlds of gaming and imagination. Powered by NVIDIA Ampere architecture – NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture – the new GeForce RTX™ 30 Series boasts new RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and streaming multiprocessors to deliver jaw-dropping performance at 4K, and even 8K, resolutions. This amazing performance, however, means both the RTX 3080 and 3090 draw over 300W of power at load to render the latest games and applications at previously unseen frame rates, making them some of the thermally demanding GPUs on the market. A Hydro X Series custom cooling system equipped with new XG7 RGB 30 Series Water Blocks is able to tame the temperatures that these new cards are capable of generating, by carrying the heat to a dedicated radiator and efficiently exhausting it from your system, allowing it to quietly run at optimal performance even while playing the most demanding games.

    With a core block made from precision milled nickel-plated copper and a total-conversion shroud finished in stylish black aluminum, each XG7 RGB Water Block provides the premium cooling your graphics card needs to reach its full performance potential. More than 50 high-density micro-skived cooling fins sit atop the GPU core, fed by a high-flow coolant channel that allows for massive thermal transfer from the GPU to your custom cooling loop’s coolant. The transparent acrylic top plate provides a crystal clear view of the flow channels and your coolant, making it a highlight of any custom cooled PC.

    The XG7 RGB’s total conversion design cools more than just the GPU though, with active cooling for the entire card’s memory and VRM, encased in a durable and refined aluminum casing with a full-length aluminum backplate. It is also the only GPU water block currently on the market with pre-applied thermal material and thermal pads, making installation quick, easy, and totally clean – no measuring, cutting, or spreading required.

    16 Individually addressable RGB LEDs are integrated directly into the XG7 RGB, delivering vibrant, customizable lighting when combined with CORSAIR iCUE software and a CORSAIR iCUE RGB Lighting Controller such as the iCUE Commander PRO. RGB Lighting can be synchronized in iCUE, along with other components such as Hydro X Series CPU Water Blocks, Pump/Reservoir Combos, and iCUE-compatible CORSAIR components and peripherals, to create a spectacular light show across your whole system.

    Whether your next upgrade is an RTX 3080 or top-of-the-line RTX 3090, CORSAIR Hydro X Series XG7 RGB GPU Water Blocks unlock the true potential, and performance, of today’s most powerful graphics cards.
