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 managed to get your hands on one of these cards day one, you no doubt had quick reflexes. If all you see are "Out of stock" badges now, you'll have to do a bit more manual work. You can always check RTX 3080 Ti availability at NVIDIA's website (opens in new tab), but there should also see buying opportunities at major retailers.

Best Buy currently has listings for cards from NVIDIA (FE), EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, and ASUS. Amazon has a number of cards listed, though many have prices far above anything reasonable. B&H and Newegg are also retailers where you'll find stock.

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.

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 sold out essentially immediately, causing NVIDIA to apologize for a messy launch. 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 (opens in new tab), or you can head to individual retailers.

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. Have a look at our guide to NVIDIA RTX 3090 vs. RTX 3080 vs. RTX 3070 performance for a better idea about how these GPUs stack up.

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 (opens in new tab).

Amazon has a splash page with several RTX 3090 options from Zotac, PNY, MSI, ASUS, and Gigabyte, though many have limited stock or are way overpriced.

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 one of the best graphics cards 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 launched 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.
