Nvidia GTX 1080 Pre-Orders Sell Out in Minutes

After years of 28nm GPUs, the market is ready for the best and latest to come out. Nvidia led this generation with their GTX 1080 Pascal GPU on the 16nm process. After reviews came out earlier this week, we were able to crown the new performance king. With availability to start next week, pre-orders popped up today and boy did they fly.

Retail availability is set to occur on May 27th this coming Friday but several e-tailers started their first round of pre-orders today. Despite only popping up for a few minutes, Amazon, Newegg and Best Buy all sold out of their pre-orders within minutes. This went for all brands like MSI, ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, Zotac and PNY. I guess when they are all reference model Founders Edition, it doesn’t matter too much which card you buy.

Given the performance, it’s not surprising there is so much pent-up demand. Of course, many of these pre-order cards might get resold on eBay for a hefty premium as many listings there have already popped up. For those who missed out, I wouldn’t worry too much as the chances of getting the few pre-order units is pretty slim. I suspect we’ll see several more rounds of pre-orders to occur in the coming week.
