Finding Nvidia RTX 3080 stock in the US has suddenly become the hardest boss level for gamers looking to upgrade their graphics card.
There are four online stores we constantly track, and most have the sought-after Nvidia graphics card for MSRP, or close to it. We've found the RTX 3080 in stock at Amazon, Best Buy, Antonline and the Newegg Shuffle recently.
RTX 3080 news at Newegg on a daily basis
RTX 3080 stock is currently part of the Newegg Shuffle, the popular products lottery that offers you a chance to buy graphics cards and maybe an Xbox Series X restock every weekday (and sometimes Saturdays).
Today, July 14, the RTX 3080 is available – one from MSi and another from Gigabyte – but be warned the price climbs to over $1,000 for both graphics cards. Normally, Newegg will sell the Gigabyte RTX 3080 for $699, but a Gigabyte motherboard is thrown in, too, and that makes the price go up another $401. The MSI RTX 3080 Gaming Z Trio 10G is just that expensive at $1,159.99 – it comes unbundled.
here's the full RTX GPU lineup from the Newegg Shuffle today:
- RTX 3080
- RTX 3070
- RTX 3060
- RTX 3080 Ti
The Newegg Shuffle selection window for the RTX 3080 and other graphics cards ends at 1pm PDT.
Overdue RTX 3080 stock at Best Buy for MSRP
Best Buy always has Nvidia graphics cards for MSRP, including the RTX 3080 – but finding them in stock is easier said than done. It's been five weeks since we saw the RTX 3080 Founder's Edition in stock.
Best Buy has been far from consistent with its product restock efforts, but among its GPU stock, the RTX 3080 is in stock most consistently on a Thursday or occasionally on a Friday. So we'll update our RTX 3080 restock news when it happens: last month, it did restock at 4:15pm EDT on a Thursday, but we're constantly tracking it.
There's a problem: the Best Buy restock time is never consistent. Of course, this all depends on Best Buy RTX 3080 stock; there's no guarantee it'll be this Friday.
RTX 3080 bundles at Antonline
Antonline is due to have RTX graphics cards in stock this week and the online store always pairs them with other components (just like Newegg does). So you'll also be buying a motherboard, case, monitor or something else with it.
The difference with Antonline is that it's first-come-first-serve (vs Newegg's lottery), so if you're fast enough, this is the one to watch. You just have to be okay with GPU bundles with tons of extras – everything tends to be at MSRP when you add it up, but the price is steep.
Other RTX 3080 stock sources
There are other options for RTX 3080 stock outside of these online retailers. At times we've seen Microcenter carry Nvidia and AMD cards at its local stores with a strict limit of one purchase per person per month. However, it's harder to track the RTX 3080 at the many store locations around the United States.
GPU manufacturers like EVGA and Zotac have gone with a virtual queue system, not unlike the PS5 restock at Sony Direct, and they have been an extra source to find a brand-specific RTX card. We've seen Zotac restock the RTX 3080 at midnight on certain weekdays, while EVGA has favored mornings, but the next restock date is almost impossible to determine.
