All first stock of the RTX 3080 Ti, such as Best Buy’s in-store stock, appears to be sold out. Newegg’s lottery-like Shuffle has also ended; if selected, you will be informed between 5PM and 9PM ET.

The Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti is here, at least for people lucky enough to locate one. Announced earlier this week together with the forthcoming RTX 3070 Ti, the 3080 Ti serves as the stricter successor to the GeForce RTX 3080, an outstanding graphics card that created 4K gaming that much more affordable and exemplified exactly how transformative DLSS technology may be.

Such as the RTX 3090, Nvidia’s latest flagship touts impressive 1440p and 4K performance, albeit at a smaller, quieter package with half the VRAM. It certainly is not cheap at $1,200, but given the ongoing semiconductor shortage along with also the outlandish street prices of most GPUs right now, the RTX 3080 Ti could be more affordable at MSRP than if you were to succumb to the resale market.

While we anticipate availability to be restricted at launch and during the rest of the calendar year, many retailers now have the RTX 3080 Ti in stock. Best Buy announced yesterday it would give customers a opportunity to purchase a Creator’s Edition of the card at select stores these days, however, unlike past years, Best Buy will just offer you the GPU in-store. Clients that are hoping to pick this up at launch will have to line up early and procure a ticket at 7:30AM local time before it goes on sale at 9:00AM local time. If you’re reading this today, odds are good that you’re already too late.

Visiting your regional Micro Center might be your only other viable alternative, if you are expecting to receive one . That retailer lists five RTX 3080 Ti models on its site from Gigabyte, Asus, EVGA, and MSI. If you are looking to purchase the RTX 3080 Ti online, your choices are limited.
