    I queried this with live chat support. They have thousands of orders to go through, so will be several hours until they finish processing. Likely the reason only Saturday delivery was available too.

    I appreciate the explanation, thank you. And apologies for name dropping a competitor, completely slipped my mind during the panicked refreshing! Now edited out.

    I tried to contact live chat but they closed it, even though it's supposed to be open until 10pm!

    Ah ok, that makes sense thanks for clearing it up. Just hope they don’t cancel it

    Probably exhausted with the amount of queries they’ve been getting from people asking about 3080ti’s

    Check if the money has been taken out your accounts ? i got a 3080 FE in todays drop and money has already been taken but just says You have 1 successful pending order on website . I'm pretty confident it will all go through fine :)

    That's the issue though, one person on multiple devices / browsers. Multiply that by thousands for total connections. They'll be severely limiting the number of connections that can reach the "buy button".

    That was simply to check if there was something wrong with my pc. Primarily using the pc since 14:05. Nothing.

    Just a little strange you had to be lucky on your page refresh to qualify for a card.

    There have been a few posts on here saying "I've got the site open on my pc & phone" etc. It all adds up to a lot of connections.

    The site went down during the 3080 launch so it's probably due to that.

    It was up and running the whole time. Even seconds after it was on the nvidia website. No option to buy on the website for me but others had the option.

    Took me about 5 minutes of refreshing thinking am I doing something wrong. Just the specs and price of the card showing.

    Quite a few in the same situation. On FB (certain retailers page) there’s a fair few comments of others having the same problem.

    Just seems very odd to me. Would have been much better on the nvidia website, might have stood a chance then even with all the bots haha.

    I had several browsers open for all the big retailers and didn't once see an option to add anything to a cart. Very frustrating indeed.

    Hopefully, I'll happily buy a 3090 or a 3080ti at RRP right now.

    I had multiple sites open over 2 PCs and the FE page for redirect and not once did I get a buy button appear on multiple cards... I was there before the 2pm start time until 2:30pm and nothing.
