What’s the skinny? After the negative backlash, NVIDIA received online regarding the launch of the RTX 3080 and then the RTX 3090. NVIDIA has decided to push back the launch of the RTX 3070 by two weeks. The new release date of 3070 is October 29, 2020.
“We know this may be disappointing to those eager to purchase a GeForce RTX 3070 as soon as possible, however this shift will help our global partners get more graphics cards into the hands of gamers on launch day.”
The RTX 3070 has the potential to be one of the best-selling GPUs in a long time, offering a great price to performance. With AMD’s announcement of their new GPU lineup coming the day before, on the 28th, NVIDIA’s 3070 being pushed back to the 29th gives people who were considering the 3070 a chance to hear what Dr. Lisa Su and AMD have to offer with their new lineup.
