Tech giant Nvidia officially unveiled a new line of its flagship GeForce RTX 3000 series GPUs in early September. The company has already started selling some of its GPUs, while others have yet to go on sale. And among the latter, the GeForce RTX 3070 can be distinguished, the launch of which, unfortunately, was postponed. In an official post, which was posted on its own blog, the company admitted that it is aware of the fact that the news may disappoint some fans.

Nevertheless, the company also mentioned that “this transfer can significantly help our global partners to get much more video cards for further transferring them into the hands of gamers on launch day.” That is, to put it simply, this transfer will satisfy even greater demand for the manufacturer’s new video cards, because there will be more of them in every store. And yes, if we talk directly about the date itself, now the GeForce RTX 3070 video cards will be released on October 29, and not 15 as originally planned.

And in general, this delay was really necessary, because not so long ago the manufacturer had to officially apologize for the catastrophic shortage of stocks of its new GeForce RTX 3080 video card.Nvidia then said that it was not ready for the huge demand for its own graphics processors that in turn and led to the immediate sale of all initial batches of cards. So let’s hope that the postponement of the release of the GeForce RTX 3070 will avoid such an unpleasant situation a second time. And besides, the likelihood of a much greater excitement around the aforementioned video card once again confirms its price. The GeForce RTX 3070 will have a starting price of $ 499.

That is, this graphics processor will be the cheapest option out of all three available Ampere-based chips. Finally, according to Nvidia, the upcoming GeForce RTX 3070 will match the performance of the most powerful graphics card of the previous generation – the RTX 2080 Ti. Well, if we compare the upcoming new product with the RTX 2070, then the 3070 will be 60 percent better than it on average. So there is a very high probability that after a few years, it will be the RTX 3070 that will become the most popular option, which enjoys the most popularity.
