There's no doubt that Nvidia's RTX 3080 is a beast of a GPU, but unfortunately the GPU did not have a smooth launch. Upon launch, a majority of the GPU stock was claimed by bots, with only a lucky few being able to get the GPU. Not only was the launch rocky, users also started to complain that several third-party RTX 3080 GPUs had a defect.

Recently, it was reported that AMD is being quite cautious with the RX 6000 GPUs, at least on the performance side, so that they don't see the same fate as the RTX 3080. And it seems that even Nvidia itself learned a lesson from the mess, as the company is now said to be producing a larger supply of the RTX 3070 GPUs.

The information comes from the Japanese website PC Watch, which supposedly contacted several Japanese Nvidia GPU partners who claimed that there will be a larger stock on RTX 3070 units in comparison to RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 units. However, it isn't clear whether the retailers refer this to the overall stocks or launch day stocks. The only way to find out is to wait until the GPU launches. Another reason why Nvidia would choose to increase the stock number is due to the fact that the RTX 3070 is an attractive GPU and many users are willing to pick it up over the expensive RTX 3080 and 3090.

While this information comes from the Asian market, we aren't sure if this is also going to be the case with American partners.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 features 5,888 CUDA cores, 1.73 GHz of Boost Clock, and 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. According to Nvidia, the RTX 3070 is faster than the RTX 2080Ti.

An unofficial report also stated that Nvidia has canceled the RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 launches on October 29.
