Updated August 8, 2021 at 2:16 PM: The RTX 3090 Founders Edition is now out of stock through Scan in the UK. We've added a listing for a different RTX 3090 that is in stock at the time of this update, though it is more expensive.
It's difficult to purchase the best graphics cards at the moment due to stock shortages and scalpers buying up any available units. But if you're in the UK and looking for an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, you're in luck. You can purchase the powerful graphics card through Scan for its suggested retail price of £1,399.
As the current flagship card from NVIDIA, the RTX 3090 has top-of-the-line specs. For context, here are the specs of the RTX 3090 vs the RTX 3080.
|RTX 3080||RTX 3090|
|Memory||10GB GDDR6X||24GB GDDR6X|
|Transistors||28.3 billion||28.3 billion|
|Node||Samsung 8nm||Samsung 8nm|

Its current price of £1,399 isn't a discount, but it will feel like one in comparison to the inflated prices seen on the second-hand market and from some retailers.
The RTX 3090 is the king of NVIDIA's graphics cards. It delivers incredible performance for gaming and professional use. Finding it in stock and for its suggested retail price is rare, but that's exactly what's available through Scan right now in the UK.
