Nvidia delays its RTX 3070 launch until October 29th

Nvidia’s website has been updated, listing their upcoming RTX 3070 graphics card with a new October 29th release date. This change has delayed the release of their RTX 3070 graphics card for two weeks, placing the launch after AMD’s Radeon RDNA 2 reveal on October 28th. 

At this time, the reasoning behind the delay is unclear. Given the issues surrounding the company’s RTX 3080 launch, it is possible that Nvidia wants to give their AIB partners more time to test their custom models before launch. Alternatively, Nvidia may be trying to increase their day-1 stock levels, allowing more Geforce fans to purchase RTX 3070 graphics cards on launch day. 

Nvidia’s RTX 3070 graphics card will release on October 29th at 2 PM BST. Nvidia’s RTX 3070 promises RTX 2080 Ti-like performance for £469, so you can be sure that this graphics card will sell at launch.
