UPDATE: RTX 3070 is available now in New Zealand

A statement from Nvidia has just been released announcing a delay for the Nvidia RTX 3070 launch by almost two more weeks, with the new date being late October.

Via Nvidia: Production of GeForce RTX 3070 graphics cards are ramping quickly. We’ve heard from many of you that there should be more cards available on launch day. To help make that happen, we are updating the availability date to Thursday, October 29th. We know this may be disappointing to those eager to purchase a GeForce RTX 3070 as soon as possible, however this shift will help our global partners get more graphics cards into the hands of gamers on launch day.

The RTX 3070 is a very exciting graphic card, and with its more affordable price point and relaxed power requirements, this new graphics card is sure to be extremely popular. The RTX 3070 is geared to support the latest features, including NVIDIA Reflex for high FPS gamers, and Broadcast for streamers.

Performance charts released by Nvidia show the GeForce RTX 3070 delivers similar or faster performance than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, and is on average 60% faster than the original GeForce RTX 2070.

With performance shown close to that of the previous flagship, the RTX 3070 is looking like a gaming beast!

The RTX 3070 isn’t the only new graphics card that’s coming though, with legitimate looking leaks for the RTX 3060Ti popping up too things are really going to get good for gamers in the mid-range, which based on these performance charts, is very close to the previous generations top end!

Seems to be selling out fast; I didn't think the 3070 would be that popular.
