Despite the RTX 3070 launch being pushed back, ostensibly to allow retailers to stock up on the card, Danish stockist Proshop has released information saying they only have 106 of the 4280 cards they have ordered from manufacturers, representing a mere 2.5% of their required inventory.

Although an additional 185 cards are confirmed to be in transit to Proshop, this still represents a shortage of the 3,989 units they have ordered from Asus, Gigabyte, Inno3d, and MSI.

The RTX 3070 launch is scheduled for 29th October, just 8 days away at the time of writing, and if the experience of Proshop is an indication of what other retailers are experiencing, the RTX 3070 release could be a similar debacle to that of the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. If this is the case it would appear the entire strategy for delaying the RTX 3070 until supply could meet demand has failed, though admittedly the situation would likely be even worse had the delay not occurred.

Proshop’s current RTX 3080 inventory is reportedly 479 of the 8,925 total ordered units, and their RTX 3090 stock is just 148 out of 1,912 total ordered units, despite the launches of both of these cards on September 17th and 24th respectively. The entire reason we have access to Proshop’s inventory figures is because the retailer felt it needed to respond to customers who were understandably annoyed about the meager number of cards available for purchase, making this information visible to the public on October 7th.

In a recent Q&A, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said expected demand for the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 to “outstrip all of our supply through the year”. It looks as if the same could also now be true for the RTX 3070.
