With every NVIDIA GPU series launch, we have seen shortages in supply for these graphics cards, well, NVIDIA has lots of reasons to defend, but the major fault is still of the foundries like TSMC and now Samsung. With RTX 30-series, NVIDIA used Samsung’s 8nm nodes, and it had its issues during launch; however, now seems to be supply issues as well.
Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 30 GPUs have been in tight supply due to unsatisfactory 8nm process yield rates at its foundry partner Samsung, according to industry sources says the recent report from Digitimes.
Already getting hold of an RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 is very hard and adding to this the problems will likely increase for NVIDIA. However, mid-range cards like RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti are found to be in stocks sometimes but thanks to the increased demands, they are getting sold out soon as well.
In the meantime, it is also reported that NVIDIA will end the production of RTX 20 series Super cards, which seems unverified but interesting enough. Surely, the budget RTX 2060 and GTX 16-series will be in production until their Ampere replacements come to the market in ample quantity.
