In what appears to be a major step towards ending the GPU shortage, Nvidia and its partners are making GeForce RTX 30 series cards available through the Campaign Restocked and Reloaded. There is no condition attached here. If it’s in stock, it’s in stock and ready to buy.
To be clear, not all SKUs are back in stock, but a fair amount of 30-series GPUs can be found direct from partners or retailers like Amazon and NewEgg. On the bright side, prices seem a bit closer to MSRP than they have been for the past couple of years, with some models only over their mark by around $50.
The restocked and reloaded page is simple to navigate and includes links to every 30-series GPU model. While some options like the RTX 3070 are still out of stock, available models include the RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3090 Ti and the RTX 3050.
For those who prefer to skip all the different model tabs, EVGA had a more consolidated list of its 30-series GPUs ready for purchase. See you at EVGA website to get a good look at all of its replenished GPUs. EVGA notably kept its EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti FTW3 BLACK GAMING card at Nvidia’s $1,999 MSRP. Most of the other cards available still exceed the MSRP, but also include built-in cooling solutions, so the price hike is reasonable. The Lower 30 series models are also available from retailers like NewEgg.
Several desktop systems from various pre-built gaming PC companies were also listed. For the past couple of years, buying a pre-built rig was one of the cheapest ways to score a new GPU. Given Nvidia’s new campaign, however, things seem to be changing.
While the restocked and reloaded campaign could signal the start of a greater return to normality, there are a few things that seem odd about all of this. First of all, it’s a bit strange to see a manufacturer announce that boards released over a year ago are in stock, as pointed out video cardz. Second, it reads oddly that there’s suddenly a lot of GPUs to do after all this time. No reason to look a gift horse in the mouth, though.
