Lower shipments until late SeptemberAllegedly, shipments of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and GeForce RTX 3060 will face a reduction of 50 percent in early September. The restricted supply is expected to last until at least late September.
VideoCardz independently heard from sources at NVIDIA's board partners that COVID-19 is to blame. New outbreaks at Chinese factories are resulting in capacity issues. The site is unsure whether the issue exclusively affects certain board partners or only certain assembly lines.
We have learned through our independent sources that board partners expected lower shipment of GPUs (not exclusive to RTX 3060 series) due to some Chinese factories being partially closed or not working at full capacity due to new local outbreaks of COVID. This information appears to confirm this fact, however, we are not sure if this is only affecting certain board partners (often sharing the same component suppliers) or only certain assembly lines.
