We have always been told that the scarcity of a commodity can add exponentially to its value at times. It is one thing to speak about things like these in principle and another to experience them in reality. Good or bad, it’s hard to make out but a similar story has followed for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 series. The new Ampere technology GPUs have been plauded for the immersive graphics they promise to bring. However, since their arrival, it has been a difficult task to get our hands on these futuristic GPUs. There came a period of negativity with too much of scalping issues with some major retailers involved. Recently there has been relief over various custom GeForce RTX 30XX cards, as restocking continues. Shopblt is another retailer that has started taking pre-orders now.
