UPDATE FOR FORUM MEMBERS - TO INCREASE CHANCES OF GETTING ONE ON LAUNCH DAY!

The following cards are in stock right now and shall be available to order around 14:00 today, quantities are limited and expected to sell out straight away, GOOD LUCK!

- Gigabyte Eagle
- Gigabyte Gaming
- Asus TUF
- Palit Gaming Pro
- Palit Gaming Pro OC
- Zotac Trinity


Stock arriving over next few days:
- MSI Ventus
- MSI Trio
- Asus TUF
- Palit Gaming Pro
- Gigabyte Eagle
- Gigabyte Gaming
- Zotac Trinity


The numbers incoming are limited, as such the majority will probably be waiting until October to receive a card, as demand at launch will seriously out strip supply this month.

Unfortunately hitting MSRP has proven tough, the MSRP's were set when the pound was 1.33-1.34 this can easily be confirmed by checking charts, and stock has been arriving at OcUK purchased at rates of 1.27-1.29 as such MSRP's are a real struggle. Brands are working with us to allow us to hit MSRP, but unless the pound recovers back to 1.33-1.34 levels then the prices will go up by approximately £30-£40 a card, so do be warned, pre-ordering will save you money but the window of opportunity to do so shall be slim, potentially minutes at 14:00


October shipments are looking much more plentiful, plus hopefully Brexit discussions will find a positive outcome and thus MSRP's shall be met again but unfortunately I cannot predict where the pound shall be in a weeks or months time it could get better and thus prices go back to MSRP (1.33-1.34) or it stays where it is now and prices remain higher or it gets worse.......

Be patient, we do expect huge demand come 14:00 and I realise that many of you won't be getting a card tomorrow so we ask for you to be patient please as we shall be working hard to secure as much more future allocation as possible to meet demand.

NVIDIA have a truly incredible product and you also get the FREE Watch Dogs and GeForce NOW promotion when buying from OcUK also.

This is a heads up for OcUK forum members only, don't post it on other websites it is to give you guys better odds of getting one on release day.

Less than one hour and counting.

Also we have left all cards listed as Pre-Order, even the in stock cards, this is simply again to give forum members a better chance but also because we feel as our website updates every 60s and due to cache can take longer it will help avoid disappointment from customers placing orders for cards showing in stock or 10+ when the stock actually sold out whilst they were ordering but due to the 60s cycle or website cache the customer was unaware.

As such OcUK will not display any cards in stock, even though we have stock on above lines. :)

Don’t suppose you know yet but similar expectations on 3090? I hear NV gave the AIB vendors no time to make the coolers/designs so longer to wait on all of those other versions.
