Nvidia’s RTX 3000 series is finally starting to hit store shelves, with its flagship RTX 3080 card leading the pack when it releases September 17. It’ll be available from a few major retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, and you can sign up to get email notifications from Nvidia the moment it (and other RTX 3000 series cards) become available. But with no-preorder options up for grabs at any RTX 3000 series partner retailers, you’re going to want to make sure you’re up to date on where and how to buy an RTX 3000 card as early as possible. That’s why we’ve gathered up a list of the different RTX store pages that are up right now, so you can get your hands on the new best graphics cards before they likely sell out, at least in the first frenzied wave.
Releasing September 17th at a starting price of $699.99 for Nvidia’s own Founders Edition version, the card on everyone’s mind right now is the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. According to our review, it’s both powerful and surprisingly well priced — “for $700, you get 30% better performance than the outgoing RTX 2080 Ti and pocket $500 in savings.” There’s no doubt the 3080 will be in high demand, which makes it unfortunate that pre-orders aren’t an option. That said, a number of retailers have store pages up right now in anticipation of launch, and you can sign up to get notified when they go live.
Best Buy currently has RTX 3080 options from Nvidia (the Founders Edition), Gigabyte, MSI, Asus and EVGA listed. Again, you can’t pre-order any of these, but you can sign up for notifications. Prices range from $699.99 to $849.99 depending on model and manufacturer.
Amazon, meanwhile, doesn’t have any options straight from Nvidia. Instead, it carries models from PNY, Zotac, MSI, EVGA, Gigabyte and Asus. Like Best Buy, you can only sign up for notifications as ofthis writing. Unlike Best Buy, Amazon doesn’t have any prices listed.
