Nvidia’s latest series of graphics cards has arrived. And while RTX 3080 pre-orders unfortunately weren’t available to secure a card before release, you can now pick up a new Ampere series graphics card from a wide range of retailers now that we’ve reached the the 17th September 2PM BST (9AM PT) release date.
Many of us have been very excited to get our hands on the new Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics cards following their announcement at the start of September. Sitting in between the RTX 3070 and RTX 3090, the RTX 3080 is positioned in a similar spot to the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Super as the high-end choice.
If you’ve come here looking to buy the RTX 3080 then you’ve probably seen the huge excitement surrounding the card so far – especially after the remarkable numbers in the early Digital Foundry benchmarks, which showed gains of up to 90 per cent in certain games compared to the outgoing RTX 2080 at 4K resolution.
