Even though there are a lot of complaints of poor availability of NVIDIA's latest video cards, FUD Zilla claims the launch of the GeForce GTX 1080 was the highest volume high-end video card launch to date. The site heard from multiple sources that the GTX 1080 is the best-selling card in the history of the GPU, and that launch sales were much higher than with the GeForce GTX 980 or GTX 980 Ti:
Many of our colleagues were writing about the shortage of Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 and 1070 cards and they got things mostly right. Our multiple sources close to AIB partners told us that the 1080 is the bestselling high-end card in the history of GPU.
Everyone we talked to, outside of Nvidia of course, has confirmed that Geforce GTX 1080 launch was the biggest volume high end card launch, that was ever deceived by Nvidia at launch date. This got confirmed by both AIB and retail / etail sources and guess what, it all sold out in minutes. The numbers were much bigger than with Geforce GTX 980 or Ti launch, but it still sold within minutes.
