GeForce GTX 680 availability
 
I've been wanting to get a new GTX 680 from any vendor, but I have had a lot of difficulty locating one. All the main e-tail sites like Newegg and Frys are out. I went to ebay and Amazon, but I'm unwilling to pay $100 or more over MSRP to those scalpers. Anyone hear about the availability of the GTX 680. It's obviously extremely difficult to locate at MSRP, but I'm hoping that the availability will improve soon. I never thought a $500 video card would sell out so quickly maybe TSMC is having problems with 28nm process, but the HD 7970 seems to be available.

This reminds me of my attempts to get an ATI X800 XT PE back in 2004. I was never able to buy one even though I spent a TON of time online at various sites.

At 6:30 est always check the evga website and keep hitting f5 to refresh. That is how I got mine .

It seems that is when they update the inventory system. I notice it shows up anywhere form 6:30 until about 6:50

But only is there for maybe 2-3 minutes so make sure you have an account and logged in already

I got mine by pure luck.

I had notifications turned on at both newegg and evga... forwarded my e-mail to my work just in case... at work, received notification from evga... went to purchase... was sold out by the time I finally got my CC info in... went to newegg (just to check (AND they NEVER notified me))... they had some in stock, so I purchased one... checked again... they were sold out within 5 minutes of my purchase.

So... there are cards being delivered, constantly... but obviously, in small quantities. One can't really label that as a "paper launch". You just have to be swift and lucky to nab one now... or pay the overage on places that are gouging with the supply vs. demand thing. :(

:lol:

For all intents and purposes, it's a paper launch until they remain stocked for more than 10 minutes at a time.

MSI and Galaxy are in stock on Newegg atm.

Received notification that the Asus was in stock at Newegg at 5:25pm. Already out of stock, but there are 12 customer reviews :)

I've purchased products from Newegg before, but have never completed a review or provided a rating on their web site. Does their review/rating policy require that the product be purchased from them before they allow a customer review? I imagine they would to reduce the amount viral marketing that takes place on the Internet.

That's good info there. Maybe they are selling out so fast that notifications aren't being sent.

Its been a long time since I lived in Texas (2003 - 2004) and bought from New Egg but I think anyone can review a product but if you have bought the product then it mentions that in the comment.

I wish they would get some in stock ,it is almost a paper launch because it is really hard to find one and they are upping the price because of it.I would like to go to newegg and have more then one option to choose from.What I really would like to see is a GTX-670 and see if it is going to be like a GTX-580 to GTX-570 in performance.I hear rummors that there will be a GTX-670-Ti and a GTX-670 and a GTX-690.I might go with a GTX-690 if the performance is good and they don't have it way over priced.
