NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards are here. Here’s how to make sure you don’t miss out.

NVIDIA’s new graphics cards (GPU) have been released, and you might be wondering where to buy NVIDIA RTX 30-series graphics cards. These Ampere-powered GPUs deliver a significant performance boost over RTX 20-series cards, and they’re crushing the list of best graphics card options. They’re also battling it out with AMD’s new Radeon RX 6000 GPUs. Availability has been poor so far, so much so that NVIDIA apologized for a messy launch, but it’s still good to know where to look to get your hands on these cards as stock rotates in and out.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was announced at Computex 2021 alongside the RTX 3070 Ti. It is touted as being twice as fast as the GTX 1080 Ti in terms of rasterization performance, and it should outperform the RTX 3080 thanks to an extra 2GB of VRAM, more CUDA cores, more RT cores, more Tensor cores, and a higher TDP. It’s also about $500 more than the RTX 3080 before any of the commonplace scalping and gouging.

If you manage to get your hands on one of these cards day one, you no doubt have quick reflexes. If all you see are “Out of stock” badges, you’ll have to do a bit more manual work. You can always check RTX 3080 Ti availability at NVIDIA’s website, but there should also see buying opportunities at major retailers.

Best Buy has a program set up for launch that can help you get an RTX 3080 Ti in person, but if that doesn’t work you can always check back for regular listings. At time of writing Best Buy has listed the Founders Edition RTX 3080 Ti for online sale. Amazon is expected to have stock when the cards drop, as is Newegg. B&H is another retailer that often has GPU stock to sell.

Keep in mind that Newegg often hosts a “Shuffle” that helps people get their hands on hardware. The event lets you pick a product in which you’re interested from a set list, followed up by a draw to pick who gets to buy said product. Shuffles happen regularly, so check back often.

NVIDIA has boosted some of the RTX 3080’s key specs for the Ti version, making it a more powerful alternative at a considerably higher price.

The NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU was the first 30-series card up for grabs from NVIDIA. It’s now officially released at a price somewhere around $700, though it’s already sold out essentially everywhere. If you didn’t manage to get your hands on the first wave of cards, don’t fret. You can check availability at NVIDIA’s site, or you can head to individual retailers.

Best Buy currently has RTX 3080 options from NVIDIA (Founders Edition), ASUS, EVGA, MSI, PNY, and Gigabyte, though stock has been cleaned out following the launch.

Amazon has a page ready for RTX 3080 GPUs from PNY, Zotac, MSI, EVGA, Gigabyte, and ASUS, though stock here is sold out or far priced far higher than it should be at the time of writing. You can sign up for notifications by clicking through to individual GPU pages.

Walmart has a number of RTX 3080 GPUs that rotate in and out of listing, though they’re all at boosted prices if available at all.

If you’re shopping at Newegg and can’t find standalone GPUs, it’s because most have been moved to the Newegg “Shuffle.” This event allows you to select products in which you’re interested, ending with you hopefully being drawn to buy the product in question. Shuffles happen regularly so be sure to check back often.

The NVIDIA RTX 3080 is positioned as an option for PC enthusiasts looking for consistent frame rates at a 4K resolution. Our testing at 1440p shows the RTX 3080 delivers about a 15% to 70% performance increase compared to the RTX 2080. At 4K, performance is nearly double in some games compared to the RTX 2080.

The 3080 has 8,074 CUDA cores and 10GB of GDDR6X VRAM. This is the card to get if you plan on gaming at 4K or 1440p.

The NVIDIA RTX 3090 was the second 30-series GPU released, and like the RTX 3080 they sold out immediately. Prices should start somewhere around the $1,500 mark, and you can check availability at NVIDIA.

Amazon has a splash page with several RTX 3090 options from Zotac, PNY, MSI, ASUS, and Gigabyte, though they’re mostly sold out or way overpriced at the time of writing. Some third-party sellers have jacked up prices, so it’s not a great buying experience. Sign up for notifications from legit retailers by clicking through to individual GPU pages.

Shuffles happen regularly so be sure to check back often.

The RTX 3090 is NVIDIA’s overkill GPU, taking over for the Titan RTX that’s comparatively about 50% slower. It’s an enormous hardware piece that can push an 8K resolution at 60FPS thanks to 24GB of GDDR6X VRAM, 10,496 CUDA cores, and a 384-bit memory interface. If you want the best and have the budget, this is the right choice. Just be sure your PC is ready to handle the RTX 3090 system requirements.

Where to buy the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti

The RTX 3070 Ti comes just a week after the RTX 3080 Ti, retailing for far less at about a $599 list price. Of course, don’t expect to find that price unless you’re very lucky; chances are, stock will be limited and prices will soon be jacked up. In any case, if you’d like to get your hands on the GPU that can crush 1440p gaming, NVIDIA’s website is your first stop. There you can check out different buying options and availability.

Following the dire state of Best Buy’s RTX 3080 Ti in-store events, the retailer has made it clear that it won’t be offering RTX 3070 Ti GPUs anywhere other than online. It currently has listed the RTX 3070 Ti FE online.

Amazon, B&H, Walmart, and Newegg are all worth checking out if you’re looking for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 TI, though expect stock to disappear almost immediately. Newegg frequently hosts “Newegg Shuffle” events that allow you to choose some items (in that case GPUs) that interest you. If your name is pulled out of a draw, you get to buy those items. Shuffles happen regularly, so check back often.

The NVIDIA RTX 3070 is an affordable way to get your hands on the performance that rivals the RTX 2080 Ti. Considering prices for the 2080 Ti were nearing the $2,000 mark just a little while ago, the $500 price range for the RTX 3070 is absolutely beautiful. This is the card for anyone who’s looking for stellar 1440p performance or who wants to dabble in 4K. Check out our NVIDIA RTX 3070 review for a deep dive on what makes this GPU great.
