GPU shipments might be even lower in September due to new COVID outbreaks

The Nvidia RTX 3070 3080 and 3090

Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti will reportedly be facing enormous supply constraints in September, according to a new report by Chinese media outlet IT Home. This report comes hot on the heels of some really positive news recently about GPU shipments reaching a very high figure of 123 million units in Q2.

The site states that both RTX 3060 and the 3060 Ti will see around a 50% reduction in their shipments compared to what it has been during the first 20 days or so, in August. This information apparently comes from forums where add-in-board (AIB) vendors and other entities in the supply chain management share and discuss such details with each other.

The supply issues for the two Nvidia GPUs will reportedly persist at least until the end of September when things may start gradually improving again.

VideoCardz, however, adds that the problem won't be limited to the RTX 3060 and 3060 Ti only, and all other graphics card SKUs from both AMD and Nvidia will allegedly be affected by this too

Apparently, several GPU manufacturing factories in China are affected by the restrictions put in place due to the new outbreaks related to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of such imposed lockdowns, these factories aren't able to work to their full capacities, explains the report.

There was also a recent report of high GDDR6 prices that are similarly affected by the global ongoing chip shortage issue which are further adding to the woes of GPU manufacturers and AIBs.
