I’m not terribly surprised that the three models of RTX 4080 still in stock at Box are the rather ugly looking Palit GameRock OmniBlack models. Still, as long as they play fine, who cares what they look like?
Box in the UK still has stock. Pick up the following below:
CCL also has the following bundle in stock:
This bundle contains the MSI GeForce RTX 4080 GAMING X TRIO 16GB Graphics Card and MSI MPG A850GF 850W 80 PLUS Gold PSU for £1,546. That’s a decent amount, especially as many people upgrading to the RTX 4080 may need to get a new PSU as well to power the card, so this could save you a bit of money.
CCL Online in the UK also has RTX 4080 in stock:
Luckily, it looks like stock at Newegg is holding up. Here’s some more great prices I’ve just found:
Back to the US, and at the moment, Micro Center seems to only have RTX 4080 stock in store, rather than being available online, so worth checking if there’s a store near you with stock. This was a handy way of getting an RTX 4090 when other online retailers had sold out.
The cheapest models of the RTX 4080 that we’ve found at Overclockers (and are still in stock) are:
Get them while they last!
Stock at Overclocks UK includes:
Back over in the UK, Overclockers UK has plenty of RTX 4080 stock it looks like.
More Newegg RTX 4080 stock in the US:
The following models are in stock at Newegg:
Newegg in the US seems to have stock of RTX 4080!
Best Buy seems to be selling out in the US despite many of them saying ‘coming soon’. Keep an eye on the Asus NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB GDDR6X for $1,549 as that is coming soon.
ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB TUF Gaming for £1,269 is live, but selling out fast.
Scan in the UK has some!
Best Buy in the US still has its RTX 4080s as ‘Coming soon’….
OK deals are now live! Let’s see where you can get the RTX 4080 from…
It’s a lot bigger than the RTX 3080, and around the same size as the RTX 3090 and 3090 Ti, so make sure your PC has enough room to install this three-slot GPU.
I’ve installed the RTX 4080 I’ll be testing creative apps out later this week. It’s a big GPU!
And here are the UK retailers:
Amazon in the US and UK doesn’t seem to have RTX 4080s showing at the moment. Hopefully in a few minutes that will change.
We are now 13 minutes away from RTX 4080 going on sale, and I’ll keep you up to date with stock updates as they come. For quick access here are US retailers you should check first:
As an aside, I know physical looks aren’t everything when it comes to GPUs, but the Palit GameRock Midnight Kaleidoscope GeForce RTX 4080 (opens in new tab) looks pretty naff to me. Maybe it’ll be nicer in real life, but the shots of it on the Box website make it look a bit cheap – which as £1,399.99 it most certainly isn’t.
In the UK, the retailer box looks like it has a hefty selection of RTX 4080 models (opens in new tab) to choose from.
They range in price, with the Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 (opens in new tab)Palit GameRock Midnight Kaleidoscope GeForce RTX 4080 (opens in new tab)and Palit GameRock OmniBlack GeForce RTX 4080 (opens in new tab) being the cheapest. They’ll go on sale at 2PM GMT for £1,399.99.
So, when I say ‘cheapest’, I mean they will still be pretty damn expensive.
The Nvidia website is a good way of seeing stock levels of a variety of RTX 4080 flavors. So, not just Nvidia’s default Founders Edition, but also variants made by the likes of PNY, Asus, MSI and more.
You also get prices and ideas where to buy the RTX 4080s from. Both the Nvidia UK RTX 4080 (opens in new tab) and Nvidia US RTX 4080 web pages are now live.
These are definitely worth keeping open.
Some retailers have also made it so that only people on a waiting list can buy the GPUs.
For example, B&H has made its RTX 4080 stock ‘Waiting List Only’ (opens in new tab). This means that only people who have signed up for stock alerts will be able to buy one.
The good news is that it’s free and easy to do just that – click the ‘Notify When Available’ button and add in your details to get on the waiting list.
One of the best things you can do while waiting for the RTX 4080 to go on sale is to get prepared ahead of the stock getting released. Have the retailer pages at the top of this page open in preparation. You may find in the rush to buy an RTX 4080 that the websites crash and will not let you get in, so having them open and ready to go ahead of time is essential.
The price means that it’s not too far off the RTX 4090 when it comes to price. So if you are spending so much money anyway, should you skip the RTX 4080 and go for the RTX 4090 instead?
While that’s what I’d recommend to a lot of enthusiasts, there is a problem: the RTX 4090 remains extremely hard to buy. Without being able to get stock of the RTX 4090, then the RTX 4080 will (for a few hours today, at least) be the best GPU you can buy right now.
We do expect the RTX 4080 to sell out quickly, though, so you’ll need to be fast.
While we wait for the RTX 4080 to go on sale in a few hours, make sure you check out our Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 review.
It was a tricky GPU to review, to be honest. While it’s undoubtedly one of the best graphics cards at the moment, and performs amazingly in games (out performing the mighty RTX 3090 Ti), it’s also incredibly expensive. Selling for around $1,299/£1,269 for the Founders Edition, it’s a lot more expensive than the RTX 3080.
The day is here! The Nvidia RTX 4080 is now on sale! The good news is that while it’s selling out fast, there is still stock available at certain retailers in the US and UK.
We’ll be running this live blog to highlight everywhere that has stock, giving you the best chance to get hold of the new GPU.
