To update

And we go! The Best Buy links haven’t popped up yet, but stock is available at newegg right now! The Add to Cart button is clickable on a variety of SKUs.

Can you buy the RTX 4080 in the NVIDIA store?

You would certainly think so, but this answer is most likely no. Nvidia’s site looks like a store when you look in the graphics card section. But as we saw with the previous RTX card, clicking the “Buy Now” button brings up a pop-up screen with a list of retailers. Those that we have already highlighted numerous times in this article.

The 4080 buttons are grayed out so far and just say “coming soon,” but we expect them to show links to retailers later today. There are a few buttons ready on the 4090, but when you click through to select retailers, they are of course out of stock. Stay with us if you want the latest information on RTX 4080 pre-orders today.

Good date: We’re seeing a lot of retailers offering email notifications once stock is online for currently inactive listings on the site, usually with a button like ‘Notify when available’. We wouldn’t have much faith in that option for RTX 4080 reserve stock today, as they’re often too slow to send out those emails for items that get hacked as soon as they hit digital shelves again. They work much better for out-of-stock items with less demand.

Nevertheless, B&H Photo is actually blocking RTX 4080 pre-orders behind a waiting list, in which you really need to register. Buyers will receive an email once stock is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. So basically it’s going to be a crazy fight, but at an unknown time. Excellent.

So your best bet is still to be very ready at 9am ET/2pm. However, if you miss it today, it might be worth signing up for email notifications and just regularly checking back for the links we’ve featured over the next few days. We’ve barely seen the 4090 since launch day though, so today really feels like your best shot at the RTX 4080.

Next up is Best Buy. The selection isn’t as vast as Newegg’s, but the big box retailer has done well on recent GPU releases and it’s always worth looking for stock. MSI, Asus, Gigabyte and more are represented today.

Ok, so let’s get you set up with some links to the currently listed RTX 4080 units that will be released for pre-orders later today. First off, here’s a list of what Newegg has in the US. We’ll keep updating this list as other models come online.

We’re only a few hours away from the launch of the RTX 4080 now. If you’re planning on trying to get a good one as they become available, there are a few things you can do before the GPU launches to improve your chances of successfully buying one.

First, we recommend saving all your important billing and shipping information to the accounts you use at various retail sites. This ensures that you won’t have to worry about entering these details at checkout, helping you to quickly and easily confirm your order. Every second counts when shopping for a highly anticipated GPU like the 4080, so take some time to input your information before you race.

It’s also a good idea make sure you have a stable and reliable internet connection available before launch time. After all, it’s going to be hard to pay in a timely manner if web pages take forever to load! People with high-speed Internet plans won’t have to worry about this, but if your connection isn’t ideal, it’s worth optimizing your speed as much as you can. Make sure you’re not streaming video or doing large downloads while you’re trying to snag a card, and if the system you’re using to scan for available 4080s uses Wi-Fi, try to stay as close to a network access point as possible.

Once you’ve saved all your billing and shipping details and have a stable connection out of the box, you’re ready for the big launch. Good luck! —Brendan Lowry

Hello everyone and welcome to our live blog for the launch and launch of NVIDIA’s highly anticipated RTX 4080 GPU! While quite expensive compared to previous generations of 80-series cards, the 4080 represents one of the best GPUs money can buy if you need something for high-performance 4K gaming, streaming, editing, and content creation, or intensive. productivity work. Positioned around $400 below the MSRP of the RTX 4090, the 4080 will be a great option for people who want top-tier GPU power but can live without the best of the best.

Now that the GPU supply chain woes have finally started to ease, hopefully getting your hands on an RTX 4080 will be easier than buying a 30-series GPU. We anticipate the card will be sold worldwide. world on launch day, but if the launch goes as the 4090 did, there will be stock on hand for a good part of the day. Additionally, you can expect multiple waves of new cards to hit the digital shelves over the next week, along with a variety of pre-built systems that will combine the 4080 with other core components such as Intel 13th Gen “Raptor Lake” CPU and fast modules best ddr5 ram in the market.

This is because previous generation 30-series cards have seen huge price drops, giving budget and mid-range gamers the opportunity to pick up a quality GPU at a great price. While the 3070, 3080, and 3090 fall short of what the 4080 and 4090 are capable of, they are still fantastic cards in their own right and offer incredible value. I’ve been driving a beautiful 180hz 3440×1440 ultrawide monitor every day with a RTX 3070 Y i5-12600K-gear powered for the better part of two years, and even when gaming on the highest settings the experience has been great.

What is the price and MSRP of the RTX 4080?

While less expensive than the RTX 4090’s $1,599 MSRP, the RTX 4080’s price is still pretty high. At $1,199, the new card is nearly twice as expensive as the last-gen RTX 3080, so don’t expect to own one if you’re on a tight budget. However, for people who can afford it, the RTX 4080 offers some of the best GPU performance for gaming and productivity available on a PC, making it an attractive option for high-end gaming, streaming, content creation, and more. other creative apps.

Note that while the MSRP of $1,119 is the base price for the 4080, some versions of GPUs made by NVIDIA partners like ZOTAC, MSI, and GIGABYTE will command higher prices due to their custom cooling designs and other added features like RGB lighting and mini screens.

Should I buy an older graphics card instead of a 4080?

Not a bad idea at all, especially since the 40-series launched at higher prices than last year’s models. We’ve seen several 30-series cards of late at much more reasonable prices now that scalpers have lost interest. You should 100% avoid having used units show up on auction sites and the like, as they could be ex-crypto farm models that have taken a beating around quite a bit over the last year or so.

Is the RTX 4080 12 GB version still being released?

No, Nvidia officially canceled last month after the initial disclosure. Now things are much simpler as the RTX 4080 will only come in a 16GB model. Much of this was due to backlash from the gaming community that saw a 12GB model far less powerful and more in line with what you’d expect from a 70-series card. No RTX 4070 has been announced, but perhaps the canceled RTX 4080 12GB model will end up returning early next year as a 4070 card.

What time does the RTX 4080 go on sale?

Expect to see retailer listings for the RTX 4080 to go live around 6am PT, 9am ET and 2pm GMT on November 16, 2022.

Some of the listings are already online, but you cannot add them to your basket. But once these times hit, expect to see those buttons appear greyed out and you’ll be able to buy one if you’re fast enough. updating your screen will also help after these times.

Where can I find RTX 4080 pre-orders?

In the US, the first places to check will be Best Buy and Newegg, as those stores have online listings right now ready to go once pre-orders officially begin. We have linked to those listing pages above. B&H Photo is likely to get listings online that day.

Amazon, despite being the world’s largest retailer, is strangely slow with graphics card releases and we didn’t see them get involved with the 4090 release last month. It’s worth checking for sure, but we’re not optimistic. The same goes for Walmart, as we’ve only seen a few overpriced third-party sellers put GPU units online in the past.

In the UK Overclockers, Scan, Ebuyer and Novatech have several SKUs ready at the moment. Amazon and Currys don’t show anything up front. We don’t expect to see much movement from Amazon once everyone else goes live, but Currys has stocked other GPUs in the past, so it might be worth checking out.
