Nvidia seems to have stopped selling its GeForce RTX 30 series Founders Edition GPUs. The company has removed the video cards from its online store. Nvidia still offers RTX 30 video cards from other manufacturers in its own webshop.
Nvidia recently removed the RTX 30 Founders Editions from both its US web store and its various web stores for EU countries, noted French tech website Cowcotland. At the time of writing, all Founders Edition GPUs offered by Nvidia in the RTX 30 series, from the RTX 3060 Ti to the RTX 3090 Ti, are no longer available through the Nvidia web store.
Nvidia’s web store still offers Ampere graphics cards with custom designs from other manufacturers, in addition to Founders Editions of the newer GeForce RTX 40 series. The RTX 30 Founders Editions also seem to be available at other major retailers, such as Amazon, also writes Tom’s Hardware. It is not known whether these will continue to be available in the long term, or whether these are still residual stocks.
The first GeForce RTX 30 video cards were announced in September 2020. These were the first GPUs on Nvidia’s Ampere architecture. Nvidia has now announced and released its first video cards in the newer RTX 40 series, although the midrange GPUs such as an RTX 4060 and RTX 4070 are still missing from that line-up.
