Where to buy RTX 3080 Ti: the best prices on the mighty refresh now

By Aleksha McLoughlin

Here's where you can buy RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards now

Knowing where to buy RTX 3080 Ti stock isn't really the problem, it's the prices that some retailers are charging due to demand which means that finding the video card for its MSRP is nearly impossible. 

RTX 3080 Ti price

This high-end GPU retails with an MSRP of $1,199 and an RRP of £1,049 making it one of the more expensive ways to get into 4K gaming, but the sheer force on display (10,240 CUDA cores and 12GB VRAM) that's of little surprise that there's a steep barrier to entry. 

On that subject, given that this card launched on June 3rd 2021, only a few months ago, it's highly unlikely that you'll be able to find it for its release price set by Nvidia, even from the trusted big name retailers. Worth mentioning that some GPU makers have modified the stock cards which can sometimes alter the asking price, too.

Review: Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti is a powerhouse—but good luck finding it at $1,199 MSRP

with 164 posters participating, including story author

Nearly nine months ago, the RTX 3000 series of Nvidia graphics cards launched in a beleaguered world as a seeming ray of hope. The series' first two GPUs, the RTX 3080 and 3070, were nearly all things to all graphics hounds. Nvidia built these cards upon the proprietary successes of the RTX 2000 seriesand added sheer, every-API-imaginable rasterization power on top.

An "RTX"-optimized game ran great on the line's opening salvo of the RTX 3080, sure, but even without streamlined ray tracing or the impressive upsampling of DLSS, it tera'ed a lot of FLOPs. Talk about a fun potential purchase for nerds trapped in the house.

Even better, that power came along with more modest MSRPs compared to what we saw in the RTX 2000 series. As I wrote in September 2020:

RTX 3080's impact on the market will hopefully push the average GPU value proposition into reasonable territory. Its $699 price may not be your cup of tea, but if prices for everything beneath the RTX 3080 (and its sibling, the RTX 3070, slated to launch in October at $499) adjust according to the below benchmarks, that means a rock-solid 1080p or 1440p GPU may finally land within your budgetary reach.

...so, yeah. About that...

At the time, I was too busy running benchmarks to ask my crystal ball about an imminent future of exploding crypto values and diminishing chip and silicon supplies. The graphics card market went kablooie, and that left me holding the bag of a ridiculous claim about future GPU prices. Anyone who's been paying attention has witnessed many instant GPU sell-outs and staggering eBay listings.

Yet somehow, even though the series' existing cards are already difficult to track down, Nvidia's RTX 3000 series continues to expand—as seen in the recent announcement of two new models, the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti, which start at MSRPs of $1,199 and $599, respectively. (When fans asked you to make more graphics cards, Nvidia, I'm not sure this is what they meant.)

If you're surprised by that news, you're not alone. Last week, I learned about the new models via an unannounced knock at the door and an 11-pound box, packed with one of each new GPU as provided by Nvidia. This is the first time I can recall getting a graphics card sample from a supplier without an email letting me know that I should prep my front porch's netting to catch eager cryptomining package thieves.

An asteroid-sized asterisk, as usual

Today, the embargo has lifted on reviews of the 3080 Ti. And as has become increasingly common at Ars, this review comes with an asterisk the size of an asteroid that will likely smash your hopes of buying this card in the near future. Nvidia didn't offer any briefings about company efforts to stabilize supply, nor did the company try to guarantee that actual humans will be able to buy the RTX 3080 Ti beginning tomorrow, June 3, "starting at" $1,199. It remains anyone's guess if, when, or how a mild-mannered tech enthusiast like yourself will get a fair shake in the current market.

Should a genuine opportunity to buy this card surface, I can say that the RTX 3080 Ti finishes what the RTX 3080 started, at least for this GPU generation. Its gains over the 3080 are interesting: They're substantial, yet they aren't necessarily worth another $400 in MSRP. But on a pure gaming basis, this week's new card renders the RTX 3090, and its $1,499 MSRP, absolutely moot.

Specs for the RTX 3080 Ti land closer to the 3090 than the 3080, with the biggest difference being a gulf in VRAM. This card has 2GB more than the 3080, yet a whopping 12GB less than the 3090. That's a big VRAM differential, yet between the spec table above and the performance results below, the 3080 Ti is clearly a better choice than the 3090 if high-res gaming is your GPU priority.

That makes sense, as the 3090 was a showcase VRAM card, perfect as either an entry-level option for high-end video editing or something to attach to an 8K display. If you don't fall into either of those camps, rest assured that the 3080 Ti is a better option for GPU overspending, especially when your system is tuned to rev games at 4K resolutions and solid frame rates with very few compromises. Meanwhile, if "only 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM" is a sentence that you might say out loud with a tear falling out of your video-processing tear duct, the RTX 3080 Ti likely won't charm you.

Identical build, with one notable difference

3DMark's testing suite, including the RT-intensive Port Royal benchmark, is a good starting point to make comparisons, although AMD's latest cards get bigger wins in certain use cases than these might imply. At the very least, they show the narrow gap between the 3080 Ti and the 3090.

Last year's RTX 3080 certainly isn't chopped liver. If you find anything between the 3080 and 3090 priced near MSRP and are eager to fill your favorite 4K display with as many pixels as possible, buy first and ask model-number questions later. Depending on your ideal use case, you may want to add AMD's RX 6800XT to that list of ideal high-end GPUs, as it still has significant victories in our battery of tests. But the newer 3080 Ti does face off remarkably well against every high-end option listed in this paragraph (especially if price for you is a wholly arbitrary concept; in this marketplace, that's sadly likely).

I received the Nvidia-produced "Founders Edition" of the 3080 Ti, and its physical case and fan build look identical to the 3080 right down to its twin-fan build and "blow-through" cooling process. But one thing is definitely different this time around—the noise.

I've tested every RTX 3000-series Founders Edition up until this point, and most have done a tremendous job balancing heat, airflow, and fan speed to perform efficiently and quietly. These things rarely rev their fans to extremes. But the 3080 Ti's physical structure accommodates a more densely packed board of chips, with default power draw jumping from 320 W to 350 W. That means push has come to decibel shove in terms of keeping this GPU performant and cool.

To clarify, the 3080 Ti's decibel level does not exceed its non-Ti sibling. Rather, the 3080 Ti's gains come at the cost of the increased likelihood that its fans will rev up at default tunings, triggered by what appears to be an 81°C-ish threshold.

Average gains over 3080: 10-12%

For this review, my benchmarking tests compare the 3080 Ti against two of its nearest neighbors: the 3080 and AMD's RX 6800XT (MSRP: $649). I enlisted Ars' Senior Technology Editor Lee Hutchinson to chip in a few GPU-specific tests of the RTX 3090 FE, but these were on a different rig. As such, those RTX 3090 FE results only appear in selective tests.

Any weaker cards in my tables were tested on the same rig, which has an Intel i7-8700K CPU overclocked to 4.6 GHz, 32 GB of DDR4-3000 RAM, an 850 W power supply, and SSD storage. These tests were done in older reviews on older drivers, so their counts come with a mild margin-of-error warning.

The easy part of the review is confirming that the 3080 Ti outperforms the 3080 across the board. In rare cases, the gain over the 3080 is mild, with Gears 5 4K performance looking nearly identical between the two cards and lower gains when resolutions drop from 4K to 1440p (as is to be expected in less CPU-limited scenarios). But usually, the gains approach 10-12 percent.

Additionally, the 3080 Ti's beefy stats don't come at the cost of frame rate volatility. I've tracked most benchmarks with MSI Afterburner's "one percent lowest" frame rate count, and this time-intensive double-check answers a crucial question: whether the reported frame rate average comes with hidden frame time spikes. As the above stats show, this card holds up. (My testing rig's CPU is getting a bit long in the tooth, so your one percent stats using any of these GPUs may look even better than mine.)

Msrp edition ti 3080 founders

Nvidia just announced its new $1,199 RTX 3080 Ti graphics card, and it’s set to release tomorrow, June 3rd. It hasn’t exactly been easy to buy a graphics card as of late, though, and it seems extremely likely that demand for this new card is going to be through the roof. If you’re looking to try to pick one up, you might want to consider Best Buy, which has announced that customers will be able to line up at 81 of its stores for the chance to snag a Founder’s Edition of the card.

Here’s the full list of participating stores, if you want to see if one near you is included. On that website, Best Buy notes that staff at participating stores will hand out tickets for the cards at 7:30AM local time, and if customers receive a ticket, they’ll be guaranteed to be able to buy a card at 9:00AM local time.

Each customer can only buy one card, however, which should hopefully limit the number of cards that will be bought to be resold by scalpers. They’ll almost certainly still be in very high demand, however — especially because Best Buy is the only store in the US where you can get the Founder’s Edition of the RTX 3080 Ti.

If you’re on the fence about whether to get an RTX 3080 Ti, check out my colleague Tom Warren’s review. While he found it ideal for 1440p and 4K gaming, he also thought the $1,199 price was a little too expensive. But if you’re looking for a 30-series card right now, lining up at Best Buy for the RTX 3080 Ti on Thursday could be your next best shot to get one.

TODAY'S BEST DEALS

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has come along at a strange time. The typical time frame for a refresh might usually be nine months, about how much time separates it from the non-Ti version of the RTX 3080. And, Nvidia may have its reasons for launching this mid-generation refresh on that schedule. But, the world is in a very unusual place right now. Even the world of GPUs, from either Nvidia or AMD, has been affected.

It’s been incredibly difficult for consumers to get their hands on any of the best graphics cards. That’s because a worldwide silicon shortage has severely limited the available supply. Additionally, potential buyers have had to either deal with store lotteries or pay exorbitant prices to scalpers for the pleasure of owning one. Given Nvidia’s asking price of $1,199 for a 3080 Ti, this is a tough time to try and get one.

Yet, the RTX 3080 Ti is a very powerful card, using the RTX 3090 as a template and halving the VRAM for a more consumer-oriented card. And, though a 20GB version of the 3080 Ti is rumored to be on its way, the current iteration of the card will be able to run just about any game on the market at a 4K resolution at 60 fps. Even in more normal times, it’s not the easiest GPU to recommend. It’s not that much more powerful compared to the RTX 3080 but it is much more expensive.

Price and availability

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is available June 3, starting at $1,199 / £1,049 / AU$1,949. Prices for the RTX 3080 Ti will probably vary wildly from that minimum price, and third-party versions of the GPU will probably sell for much higher.

Given that the RTX 3080 launched in September 2020 for just $699 (£649, about AU$950), you’re paying at least twice as much for the RTX 3080 Ti. Given that this GPU has just 2GB more VRAM and 17% more CUDA cores, that 100% price mark-up might be hard to swallow right now. 

Although, this graphics card does deliver pretty much the same level of performance as the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 at $300 cheaper (at least going by MSRP), so it might be worth grabbing if you had your eyes on Nvidia’s top-end graphics card.

Chipset and features

Just like the rest of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 series, the RTX 3080 Ti is built on the Nvidia Ampere architecture, and brings with it the same improvements as the rest of the lineup. There is something new to the table, however. 

As with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 that launched in March 2021, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has a hardware-based hash rate limiter that should limit the appeal to cryptocurrency miners. We don’t test mining performance at TechRadar, so we can’t speak to how effective this limit actually is. But given that the hash rate limiter on the RTX 3060 was accidentally bypassed by Nvidia’s own driver update, we’ll just have to wait and see how well this actually dissuades miners from buying this graphics card in bulk. 

Beyond that, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is actually quite a bit beefier than the original RTX 3080, and that largely falls to core count and memory bandwidth. 

Because, sure, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti does have more VRAM, with 12GB of GDDR6X compared to 10GB of the stuff on the original card, but it’s also on a faster 384-bit memory bus. That means you get 912 GB/s of memory bandwidth on the RTX 3080 Ti compared to the RTX 3080’s 760 GB/s. With faster VRAM, not to mention just morememory, the RTX 3080 Ti should be even more adept at 4K gaming in the future.

The RTX 3080 Ti is straight up more powerful, as well. The GPU has 10,240 CUDA cores across 80 compute units, compared to the RTX 3080’s 8,704 CUDA cores. That’s a 17% increase in core count, but don’t expect a strict 17% performance increase - more on that later. 

You’re also going to get access to Nvidia’s whole suite of software features, and it’s not just limited to gaming. 

The one we are still in love with is Nvidia Broadcast, which is ostensibly designed for streamers and content creators, but we find that it is incredibly useful in just day-to-day life. We use it a lot when we’re taking meetings, or even just hanging out with friends in Discord, especially because it filters out most of the New York City street noises outside our street-facing apartment window. 

Of course, you also get access to Deep Learning Super Sampling, or DLSS. This tech uses the Tensor cores – the RTX 3080 Ti has 320 of those – to upscale a lower resolution to your native resolution. The idea is that DLSS will let you turn on more of the shiny graphics options, so you don’t have to sacrifice image quality just to hit a decent framerate, especially at high resolutions like 4K. 

Design

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti we reviewed is Nvidia’s Founders Edition, and, well, it looks like the rest of the RTX 30-series Founders Edition cards. The graphics card has an attractive black and gunmetal gray colorway. You’ll aso see Nvidia and RTX 3080 Ti branding etched into the metal. That’s not something you’ll notice once you actually have the graphics card in your PC, but it’s a nice touch. 

The RTX 3080 Ti is the exact same size and weight as the original RTX 3080, which means it’s 4.4 inches thick and 11.2 inches long, so it should fit in most cases.

There are two fans on the RTX 3080 Ti and just like the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, there’s one on the front and one on the back. This fan configuration pulls air through the front of the card, it’ll go through the card, and go out through a fan on the back of the card, probably shooting the hot air through the top of your case. 

It’s an extremely effective method of cooling the RTX 3080 Ti, and even with a peak power consumption of 350W, the RTX 3080 Ti peaks at just 78.9C. That is a lot higher than the RTX 3090’s 72C peak temperature, even though that card has the same level of power consumption. 

But it’s actually impressive that Nvidia was able to get that close in thermals, considering that it was able to shrink the cooler back down to a dual-slot design, rather than the giant triple-slot RTX 3090 Founders Edition. 

Finally, Nvidia has of course included the 12-pin power connector. It does mean that you’re probably going to have to use an adapter to power the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, but of course, Nvidia has included an adapter in the box.

Its been over a year since the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 made its debut, and the $699 is as desirable as ever, So much so that finding where to buy the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 is almost an exercise in futility. 

However, our own Tony Polanco manged to get an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti without waiting months, the more powerful sibling to the GeForce RTX 3080, and you can too if you're willing to follow his lead. 

In the meantime, we've a rundown of the core information to give you all the important things you need to know about the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. 

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 price and restocks

Available now, but very short on stock, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 starts at $699. The higher-end RTX 3090 starts at $1,499, while the RTX 3070 costs $499. 

That price is notably cheaper than its predecessor, the GeForce RTX 2080, but only at MSRP. Currently, a lot of the GeForce RTX 3080 cards that are available to buy are prices well above the recommended retail price . 

This lack of GeForce RTX 30-series cards could pave the way for Intel's Arc graphics, starting with its Alchemist graphics cards slated for early 2022. As it stands, Intel’s first Alchemist graphics card could battle Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and potentially steal some of Nvidia's gaming customers. But we'll have to wait and see on that side of things. 

We hope this overall graphics card shortage will change as 2021 gives way to 2022, but we're not expecting the dire stock situation to change any time soon. Take a look below for any potential GeForce RTX 3080 deals that may have popped up.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 packs 30 shader-teraflops (TFLOPS), 58 ray-tracing TFLops and 239 Tensor-TFLOPS. You'll also get 10GB of G6X graphics RAM, which Nvidia says is the fastest you'll find in a GPU.

If that all sounds like a second language to you, know that the RTX 3080 promises to deliver twice the performance as the RTX 2080. And if you're upgrading from an older card such as the RTX 980 Ti, you can look forward to performance gains as high as five times as what your current card is outputting. The RTX 3080 offers consistent 4K gaming at 60 frames per second, similar to the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

The RTX 3080 features what Nvidia calls the "world's fastest graphics memory," with GDDR6X VRAM that can perform at a whopping 760 GB/s. There's also new dedicated ray-tracing hardware for even more immersive lighting and shadows in your favorite PC games.

The RTX 3080 also introduces a new thermal-optimized design that promises 55% more airflow, 30% more efficiency, and the ability to be up to three times quieter during heating gaming sessions.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 performance

Nvidia has claimed the GeForce RTX 3080 is up to twice as fast as the GeForce RTX 2080 it replaces and how it will stomp the RTX 2080 Ti. It's a bold claim indeed. 

Nvidia pitted the RTX 3080 against the RTX 2080 Ti when running Doom Eternal at 4K on Ultra settings. The RTX 3080 is some 50 percent faster than the last top-end Nvidia graphics card, delivering frame rates well above 100fps. And that's likely before a lot of optimization has been done. 

Our sibling publication Tom's Hardware put the GeForce RTX 3080 to the test and declared that it delivered a "generational leap in performance." And true to its claims, the RTX 3080 offers significant gains in performance over the RTX 2080 Ti. 

"The bottom line, if you don't mind spoilers, is that the RTX 3080 FE is 33% faster than the RTX 2080 Ti, on average. Or, if you prefer other points of comparison, it's 57% faster than the RTX 2080 Super, 69% faster than the RTX 2080 FE — heck, it's even 26% faster than the Titan RTX!" Jarred Walton said in his review. 

"But there's a catch: We measured all of those 'percent faster' results across our test suite running at 4K ultra settings. The lead narrows if you drop down to 1440p, and it decreases even more at 1080p. It's still 42% faster than a 2080 FE at 1080p ultra, but this is very much a card made for higher resolutions." 

Suffice to say, the GeForce RT 3080 is one impressive graphics card, though you'll need an equally impressive overall PC to get the most out of it.
