EVGA’s GeForce RTX 30 inventory is so good that the company no longer needs the queue system for new orders
EVGA is bringing its queue system to the end for most RTX 30 graphics cards sold through the official website.
The queue order system was often considered the only way to purchase a custom RTX 30 graphics without spending hours looking for graphics cards in stock. EVGA queues allowed many gamers to simply wait for the card to be in stock and automatically secure the card for order. We have often heard about gamers waiting months for a card to be in stock through this system, but in most cases, this was the best way to buy a graphics card from EVGA at a good price.

However, the situation in the GPU market has changed dramatically in recent weeks. The RTX 30 inventory is so good that EVGA no longer needs this queue system, in fact, customers may now buy two cards without waiting (previously it was only 1 card per order). While the queue system has been removed for most RTX 30 graphics card models, EVGA may still keep it enabled for products that are harder to ship.
The discontinuation of the RTX 30 queue system is a good sign that the market is healing after the longest GPU shortage in history. We are just a few months away from the next-gen launch, thus board partners such as EVGA are now doing their best to sell as many Ampere cards as possible before transitioning to the newer architecture.
