Nvidia’s RTX 30-series graphics cards are among some of the more desirable products difficult to buy due to a number of reasons, including a global chip shortage. If you are looking to get your hands on an RTX 30-series GPU easily, you are probably going to have to wait until later this year.
During its Q1 2022 earnings call, Nvidia announced that shortages regarding the RTX 30-series are expected “to remain supply-constrained into the second half of the year.” Despite the short supply and high demand, Nvidia announced that it made $5.66 billion in revenue last quarter, with gaming revenue up by 106%.
Last year, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang anticipated supply shortages to last until 2021. In January, Nvidia’s chief financial officer, Colette Kress, anticipated that supply for the RTX 30 series would “likely remain lean throughout Q1.”
The issue is likely to impact any future cards coming to the RTX 30-series, which Nvidia may announce at least one new card on May 31st.
