    I have not seen to many non FE 3000 GPU drops lately. The other store qué has not moved for nearly a month now.

    Hopefully you get you GPU soon.

    No one knows for sure, but my guess is there going to be less ASUS non OC GPU made going forward.

    More profit in making/selling OC Cards. All there have to do is a tiny manufacturer overclock.

    Also with the new models released. Is there enough Silicon and Memory to go around.

    Hope I'm wrong

    Guys, whilst I understand your frustrations I won't allow this thread to devolve into the river of vitriol that it was a few months back, especially, if it involves personal attacks against staff again. So please, I want to nip this in the bud now....take this as the only warning, if it does I'll be asking admins to hand out permanent bans.

    As for speaking to a manager. Gibbo and I are both part of the senior management structure and we are in constant contact with the Managing Director..and you talk to us pretty much daily...which makes the accusations of lack of communication laughable. No other company offers this level of open communication.

    Trust me when I say, you aren't going to get any better responses from anybody else in the company. We're as close to the pulse as it's possible to get.

    A Samsung Odyssey G9, which I got on sale from OC in November. It's currently driven by a GTX1060, which is performing better than I thought with the big screen.

    Similar for me. I did a big upgrade to a ten year old machine, placing orders for components in November after a fairly late change of mind to opt for Ryzen 5900, which I ordered on launch day. I was waiting with parts in their boxes at home for a 2TB NVME which didn't arrive until Feb so that's when I put the new system together, minus a 3080 Strix OC that I ordered on 20/10 (started at 1223, last known position 441).

    Having only found this forum fairly recently and seeing what you guys are saying, and starting to get a bit bored of the wait, and seeing the crazy prices on the well known auction site, my overton window's shifted to the point where a £1600 6900XT starts looking like good value :cry:. I'd certainly pay the difference and switch to a 3080ti in an instant. Or I wonder about joining the scramble for a 3070ti FE, on the basis that my screen isn't quite 4k so doesn't need quite the muscle. This may be a short sighted move.

    I've ended up with Strix components by accident rather than design especially given that I thought RGB was for teenage boys. But as a 40-something man, I quite like it now so I'd like to stick with a Strix card but their hen's teeth nature does limit the options hence considering Radeon and other AIBs. Anyway, we'll see what next Friday's stock update shows...

    is that the monitor with 1440p 240hz? If so that’s really nice for a 3080, although I would go with Alienwares version it just looks nice plus it has G-SYNC ultimate, if I’m being honest I’m not a huge fan for Samsung and their monitors. They don’t look that nice IMO, not well built.

    No point in sending update emails if there isn’t any updates. He probably isn’t sending them because there is no new stock coming in :(

    That's the one. I think it looks pretty good personally and so far been impressed with it. The size is great for work too, especially massive spreadsheets, and I like to wind folk up by sharing in the full ultrawide in Teams.;)

    I've been lurking here the past 8 months, decided to give up my place in my queue for Gigabyte 3080 Gaming OC and brought a pre-built with the same card in because I simply can't deal with the waiting any longer lol. Went from Position 394 on 6th November to Position 72 as of 2 weeks ago. Hope everything picks up again soon, you're all stronger men than me!

    Oh no I’m not saying it’s bad to have time off I’m just checking I haven’t fallen off of my waitlist! No problem at all if whoever sends them out is off, just checking I wasn’t supposed to have received an update when I didn’t.
    Holiday and work life balance is important, friends :)

    It's not bad to have time off. We all need it, and of course we make sure that our tasks are handled by another colleague meanwhile, so customers aren't affected. I'm sure ocuk does the same.

    I have an ASUS ROG STRIX XG27UQ 4K 144hz 27” it’s really nice. I was thinking of getting a 1440p 240hz but I already bought this monitor before I was even thinking about going to get a PC with the 3080. The jump from 1440p to 4K is definitely noticeable and it looks amazing. Not sure about 144hz to 240hz as I have never had a 240hz monitor before.
