Larian Studios would like to test the role-playing game Baldur's Gate 3 with the new Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card. But this is sold out everywhere, which makes development difficult.
The rollplay Baldur's Gate 3 has been in the early access phase for a few days. This naturally has to struggle with problems for a pre-release version of a game. Including graphic. But Larian Studios have had a problem fixing these errors.
Larian doesn't have an RTX 3080 for testing BG 3
A PC role-playing game should of course run smoothly with as many hardware configurations as possible. Therefore different systems are tested. Including different combinations of processors and graphics cards. But this is exactly where the development studio has a problem. Because you cannot test BG 3 with an Nvidia RTX 3080. The graphics card was sold out immediately upon release, similar to the PS5 and Xbox Series X models.
"Funny story: Because the card was so popular, we couldn't find a card to test before launch," Larian wrote, addressing Nvidia. "We still don't have one. At this point, we're pretty sure the RTX 3080 doesn't even exist and that it's just" made up ". Prove that it exists by sending us one."
According to Nvidia, the current situation around the new graphics card is a demand problem. There should be no supply problem. The demand is just significantly greater than expected. The chip maker does not think the situation will improve this year. So if you are hoping to get hold of an RTX 3080 in 2020, you need a lot of luck or have to be prepared to pay exorbitant prices on Ebay. Because there are some offers of the graphics card, but at significantly higher prices.
