please save your money and hold onto it till this issue is resolved, most of the inventory that will come will be now these SKU’s , so once the issue is resolved, only then invest your money.
The availability is still a concern now for the RTX 3080, although many retailers have listed them and have given some price, but these are just for info only, further there is an issue observed with almost all of the AIB board partners who have basically cheaped out on the Capacitors and are reportedly crashing on 2Ghz+ performance, so as of now.
Early adoption is always risky, i would say wait for a month at-least as this is entirely a new 8nm architecture and will take its time to mature.
You can also wait as new RTX 3080 16GB as well 3070 16 GB are also leaked to be coming , dont know if there will be a CUDA core increase as well. As well AMD 6900XT is also reported to be at par with RTX 3080 by some online sources.
After first lauching of the GPU in india, it will out of stock from the all markets in one or two nights. So, in the first stage the shops will sell it in MRP Rupee+ GST+ Extra Cost for their profit.
This GPU is not launched in India till now. So it would be difficult for me and also others to give you the perfect date. But I can provide you a Bonus tip for buy this.
So don’t buy the GPU at the first lauching stage. The famous gamer or tech YouTuber’s will definately make review and unboxing for this product. So after running 2 to 3 months of this gpu and after getting prper rivew and notification. You can deside, wheather you buy it or not.
