The raffle at this stage covers the Founder Edition models, as in NVIDIA
's own GeForce RTX 3080
, GeForce RTX 3090
, and GeForce RTX 3070
. No word if partner cards
from the likes of MSI
will be affected, but since its announcement the demand and interest in NVIDIA's RTX 30 series has been, well, insane.
With the Founders Editions catching the eye of many due to their striking and stylish design
, one that promises improvements in cooling and overall noise. The RTX 3080 Founders Edition has quickly become one of the most anticipated bits of tech for 2020.
Which is no small feat considering that we're also on the cusp of a new generation of high-end consoles.
Initially the Founders Editions were not going to make their way here
, but then NVIDIA heard the outcry from Aussies wanting to purchase one of the cards on launch. The good news is they're coming
, the bad news is that to keep access fair the single supplier with limited stock -- Mwave
-- will be holding a raffle over the next couple of days to let people express interest and win the chance to purchase an NVIDIA branded RTX 3080, 3090 or 3070.
In a statement to Press Start
, Mwave confirmed the demand has been huge. “After a huge response from the local community for the Founders Edition, NVIDIA has arranged a limited amount of stock for the region. MWAVE will be hosting an online raffle to provide a fair go for every fan keen to get an opportunity to own the cards.”
