Nvidia Has Delayed The GeForce RTX 3070 Retail Launch

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 graphics cards have launched to critical praise but frustratingly scarce availability. In an effort to curb further consumer frustration, Nvidia has decided to delay availability of its upcoming RTX 3070 to October 29 from its original launch date of October 15.

For those of you paying attention to the next-gen graphics card war, yes, that is exactly one day after AMD’s scheduled RX 6000 Series announcement on October 28.

The ever-watchful eyes over at VideoCardz noticed the stealthy change on Nvidia’s GTX 3070 landing page.

Nvidia later issued the following statement:

“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

Trump said early Friday that he had tested positive along with his wife and one of his closest aides, throwing his campaign into deeper disarray just one month before the election.

TikTok’s ban has been temporarily delayed.

A US District Court judge has granted TikTok’s request for a preliminary injunction, delaying a planned ban on new downloads of the app that was supposed to go into effect starting Sunday at 11:59 p.m. ET.

The US Justice Department had until Friday to either delay the ban or file legal papers defending it. The DOJ filed a sealed opposition to TikTok’s preliminary injunction to block the ban of the video app, but Judge Carl Nichols of the District Court for the District of Columbia has ruled in TikTok’s favor. 

“We’re pleased that the court agreed with our legal arguments and issued an injunction preventing the implementation of the TikTok app ban,” TikTok said in a statement. “We will continue defending our rights for the benefit of our community and employees. At the same time, we will also maintain our ongoing dialogue with
