It looks like Best Buy is going old-school to combat the filthy bots. Waiting in line launch day reminds me of my youth.
The fix for bots snapping up stock of the latest graphics cards: simply don’t sell them online. At least that appears to be Best Buy’s answer to the ongoing tussle between man and machine for cutting-edge tech; for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launch, Best Buy will be only selling Founders Edition cards in-store. “Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition graphics card will have limited quantities available on Thursday, June 3, at select Best Buy stores only,” the company outlines in a post.
