The line at Microcenter that spanned several days during RTX 3090 launch week was about way more than just GPUs. FASCINATING.
Shoutout to the awesome guys there who let me use their pictures and footage in the video. So great meeting everyone there!

Yes, BitWit another good video keep up the good work, I'm 17 Years Old and going on for about 3 years now I've been really interested in computers so one day when this pandemic is over I think me, you, Paul's Hardware, Linus Tech Tips, and Jay all should get together because y'all would really be impressed by my extensive knowledge of computers that I have and I included the word extensive because of watching y'all, my knowledge has gotten greater so thank you for all that each of y'all as you tubers do.

Do retailers have any incentive to fix the bot problem? They sold the GPU’s, made their $$, who cares what happens after that.

they no longer honor the customer made list. saw a 6800 in their inventory and just got back from there a few hours ago (said there are no GPUs and that the inventory on their site was a glitch). they said you have to wait in your car and at 10:30 theyll put out a QR code to scan that puts you in a virtual line

I got really lucky because I went to buy my 3080, everyone said they were out of stock, but I still took a look, and mixed with the 2070s, hidden within the stacks of 2070s, there was an Asus tug gaming 3080. I never felt so lucky before.

Im completely new to building. I’ve never touched brand new parts. So I tried going to micro center yesterday in Tustin. I live in Hesperia. There’s still a wait list just to go into the store now during peak hours. And their shelves are empty on cards ! Wrong time to try and get into this gaming pc world. They offered me a prebuilt I took it home then opened the box and there was no mouse or keyboard .... I went back to the store and got my money back... I need to watch more of your vids man ! I need someone who is tech savvy to help me on this new journey. Also, it’s nice to know you’re in SoCal man ! Love the content too !

I camped for my Strix 3080 about a month ago. We had a similar system in place, but all of us only camped that one night so it wasnt this crazy. About half of the line were a part of the MC discord for my city and we laid out rules about leaving to eat/using the bathroom (if you didnt wanna go in a corner), and when it started raining (while being super cold) we all kind of called a truce to sit in our cars until about 6 am lol

Why don't they do an email/google form sign up raffle system like we do in the artisan keycap community? Makes it fairer and counters bots a lot better. Especially if you have a challenge question or keyword.

Congratulations to those people who came up with that wait system. The manufactures of the cards caused these debacle's knowing they'd be launching cards with too little inventory. The manufacturers want the return investment as bad as the scalpers. Technology will destroy itself

I’m a scalper I laugh when these gamers think that the lines are gamers and they beat out the scalpers. Most scalpers are sneaker resellers and we have being doing and online release once a week minimum throughout a whole year. They have bodies or people they pay to line up and destroy normies. And what’s funny is they think botting and copping these things is so easy but rather we invest tons of time and money to have monitors and bots are not cheap. They can cost around $2k+ and you need to buy proxies, setup profiles, and etc. It takes tons of time

3 months later and most of us still haven't even had the opportunity to buy a 3000 series card. They shouldn't have launched, Consoles shouldn't have launched either. Unless it was some grand scheme so they could scalp their own products at a 150% mark up then their business plan just doesn't make sense.
