    I don't know about you guys ... but I'm having more fun on this thread than I ever would have if I got my 3080......
    Kinda makes me sad seeing people get their cards because I know deep down that they're leaving the rest of us and never coming back :(


    The mutual displeasure makes me feel like I'm.....Part of something :p

    "Worst of all computer parts were thrown around the warehouse and dropped, i witnessed a whole pallet of computer parts being shipped tipping over from a flt driver who thought it was funny to drive around the warehouse."

    Generally depends one when the payment went through and how many other people did the same, you might have been queued. Check you email for order confirmation, and tomorrow you SHOULD get a weekly update assuming they actually send out the updates.

    I'm taking that stuff with a pinch of salt. This could well be true, but it could also be a disgruntled/fired employee who knows exactly what to say to hurt the company...

    It's all too easy to find confirmation bias in stuff like this. I wonder if you were to look at the same site for their competitors, you'd get the same kind of reviews?

    So I'm 26 in the queue for a 3080 TUF non OC. That would be covered by a 'small' (10-30) shipment, so I'd expected the shipment described as 'okay' (50ish) would cover my order quite easily and I've seen a number of Asus cards going out today- but no dispatch email for me yet.

    I'm curious as to what's happening, hopefully the warehouse just ran out of hours to dispatch goods today.

    :(

    Sounds like the card should be delivered in approximately 4 years. Ideally for the release of 5080.

    Hopefully you are lucky and receive dispatch tomorrow but the way previous deliveries of supposed ok stock has turned in to low poor numbers on dispatch do not hold your breath.

    Gigabyte Gaming OC. Very nice card.
    Was in for a MSI Trio, but gonna cancel as soon as I can get round to it.

    I’m actually glad. Pretty much the same card, but the backplate on the gigabyte is metal compared to apparently flimsy plastic ‘graphene’ on the MSI.

    Hi all, new here.

    Noticed on the 24th November there was a post about in incoming shipment. Is there any news on when this is likely going to be up for order or is it a case of repeatedly hitting F5 24/7 till one pops up?

    Hopefully readers are old enough and wise enough to know how to get past the issues of disgruntled emmployees and confirmation bias by looking for patterns in what is reported, and not individual incidents which may or may not be true. The lack of management support, an us & them attitude, poor pay, lack of care are issues which come through time and again and are unlikely to be just down to disgruntled employees or confirmation bias.
