Well, it's idiotic. They should have let people sign up for a 3080ti queue months ago as elite members, really. The fact that we had to wait until today was just stupid.We can't blame them too much for supply issues with the global chip shortage, but EVGA had NINE months to prepare their web presence for high traffic launch days, and they failed miserably
Well, it's idiotic. They should have let people sign up for a 3080ti queue months ago as elite members, really. The fact that we had to wait until today was just stupid.
How feasible is this though, really? We're not talking Best Buy or Newegg here. Evga is a component manufacturer who happens to do direct sales, not a major retailer. From a business standpoint, it would be incredibly foolish to ramp up server capacity for a half dozen product launches a year that require it. Putting permanent measures in place doesn't make sense. Even if they can ramp up server capacity for 24 hours only (and I honestly don't know how the world of web hosting works... is this possible?)... my guess is what it would cost to handle the colossal traffic bubble is disproportionate to what they're going to make in sales today.
