Sony’s PlayStation 5 opened pre-orders today, and it’s an utter mess so far— there was no communication about when, where, or how to get one without competing with scalpers. But maybe we can help you get your hands on Nvidia’s new RTX 3080 graphics card, a GPU that finally powers 4K 60 fps video gaming or better for $700?
Truth be informed, we don’t understand when all of these retailers will begin– we have actually currently seen this MSI card enter and out of stock– however Newegg just recently tweeted that orders begin at 6AM PT, and an Nvidia neighborhood manager stated the exact same, so that appears like a quite sure thing. It’ll definitely take place by end-of-day Thursday, because September 17 th is launch day.
But we do understand where you may wish to look: Amazon, < a data-cdata =" " has-subtag="real" href="https://bestbuy.7tiv.net/c/482924/633495/10014? u = https % 3A % 2F % 2Fwww. bestbuy.com % 2Fsite % 2Fsearchpage. jsp % 3F_dyncharset % 3DUTF-8 %26 browsedCategory % 3Dabcat0507002 %26 id % 3Dpcat17071 %26 iht % 3Dn % 26 ks % 3D960 %26 list % 3Dy %26 qp % 3Dgpusv_facet %253 DGraphics %2520 Processing %2520 System %2520 %28 GPU %29 % 7ENVIDIA %2520 GeForce % 2520 RTX % 25203080 % 26 sc % 3DGlobal % 26 st % 3Dcategoryid % 2524 abcat 0507002 % 26 type % 3Dpage % 26 usc % 3DAll % 2520 Classifications % 26 irclickid % 3D 05 GS7kSuzxyOUX 70 UfQwQyYMUkiXr 11 VzW1wzI0 % 26 irgwc % 3D1 % 26 ref % 3D 198 % 26 loc % 3DIGN % 25 E2 % 2580 % 258 A % 26 acampID % 3D0 % 26 mpid % 3D 1442478 & sharedid = theverge.com" rel="sponsored nofollow noopener" target =" _ blank" > Best Buy , and Newegg all have committed landing pages that list all the cards they plan to offer– however do note that they’re mostly third-party styles from the likes of EVGA, MSI, and Gigabyte, each with different coolers than the ones you’ll discover on Nvidia’s own Creator’s Edition card. For the precise card we evaluated with its new push/pull cooler and 12 – pin power adapter, you may also wish to attempt Nvidia itself.
You might wish to watch on those links above. You could likewise attempt a tracker like this one at NowInStock.net ; I have actually used their Google Groups variant to nab a Nintendo Switch before.
Update September 17 th, 12: 08 AM ET: Added Newegg and seeming Nvidia verification of a 6AM PT start time for orders.
