It may not have the same value as some of the other cards, but the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 is the top dog when it comes to delivering heaps of gaming performance without going overboard on price like the RTX 3090. With loads of CUDA cores, Tensor cores, and RT cores, the RTX 3080 delivers on 4K graphics. But with all that power, the RTX 3080 got tons of attention from cryptominers, and stock has been incredibly hard to find.
Even now, the RTX 3080 is one of the hardest models to find available for sale. There are occasionally models available with dramatically inflated prices — we’re talking RTX 3090 territory — and even then they’re not as regularly seen as the other cards in the lineup. One of the surest ways to actually get your hands on the RTX 3080 is just to skip the retailers selling the card on its own and go for a prebuilt or custom-built PCs. Given some sellers are asking more than double the retail value of the graphics card alone, it can make more sense to just buy a pre-built with the RTX 3080 inside, since big systems integrators aren’t charging the same exorbitant prices for the RTX 3080 inside their systems and you actually get more PC parts for the money you spend.
Beyond this, there aren’t many good options for getting the card at the. Shoppers in Australia have some options from mWave, but they’re more expensive than we’d like to see. After recent crackdowns on cryptomining and other cryptomining developments, we could see availability start to improve though, so if you’re comfortable waiting, you may have better luck in the near future.
