NVIDIA has announced that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 will officially release on October 17th. And while its MSRP is set at $499, the Founders Edition is priced at $599. As such, we can expect every custom-made RTX2070 to be priced at $599 and not at $499 (similarly to what is happening with both the RTX 2080Ti and the RTX 2080).
Beautiful any way you look at it.

Now I have to be honest here; I don’t know whether the availability of the RTX2070 will be better than the one for both the RTX 2080Ti and RTX 2080. While we’ve already pre-oredered our RTX 2080Ti from EVGA, we haven’t heard anything yet about an estimated time of arrival (most likely because we are in Europe and not in North America). According to reports, AIBs may start sending more units early next month.
So yeah, while the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2070 will officially release on October 17th, we don’t really know whether it will be available to anyone else other than YouTube influencers or reviewers. I mean, this is exactly what is happening with NVIDIA’s latest RTX graphics cards so here is hoping that the green team will address this availability issue sooner than later.
Kudos to Metal Messiah for bringing this to our attention!
