UPDATE: NVIDIA RTX 3070 Release Date DELAYED
As NVIDIA confirmed during the stream, the GeForce RTX 3070 graphics cards will be available in October. They previously had announced the card would be available on October 15, however, this date has now changed to October 29.
The change was first noticed by VideoCardz before NVIDIA issued a statement confirming the 3070’s delay.
“Production of GeForce RTX 3070 graphics cards are ramping quickly. We’ve heard from many of you that there should be more cards available on launch day,” stated NVIDIA. “To help make that happen, we are updating the availability date to Thursday, October 29th.”
“We know this may be disappointing to those eager to purchase a GeForce RTX 3070 as soon as possible,” the company continued. “However this shift will help our global partners get more graphics cards into the hands of gamers on launch day.”
October 29 is one day after AMD’s scheduled announcement of its RX 6000 Series announcement.
