The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will go on sale at 6 am PT / 2 pm BST / 3 pm CET today, June 10th. If you want to be able to buy one at that time, you will want to come prepared.
The RTX 3070 Ti is among two of our favorite graphics cards in terms of price and performance: the GeForce RTX 3070 and the GeForce RTX 3080. To put it bluntly, it’s not the GPU we were expecting, but if you think it will that it’s easier to buy a tossed one, you’re surprised.
Very good, enough fault and penumbra. Let’s find out what we know about the card before launch.
First, the RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition will be sold exclusively at Best Buy in the United States and Scan in the United Kingdom. Nvidia stopped sales of these cards through its own web store after finding them unsuitable for the purpose, which is why it will have to search anywhere else in hopes of finding one.
While opting for an in-store version of the RTX 3080 Ti, Best Buy reports that the RTX 3070 Ti will only be available online at launch.
Something to note also with Best Buy: the retailer has previously staggered the availability of graphics cards to try to manage the immense demand on their pages and store servers. This means that you may want to monitor the store page for a while longer after launch to be able to purchase the card. Essentially, don’t give up at 6am, if it looks like stocks are no longer there, maybe not.
If the Founders edition isn't available in your country or you're just not interested in this model, you can also purchase cards designed by third parties today. Some of which will reach the PVP of the card $ 599 (£ 529, € 619).
We have received the following models from Nvidia, which will arrive at MSRP in the UK. Unfortunately, we have not been able to confirm the US price, but it is likely to be the cards if you want to save some cash.
- Palit RTX 3070 Ti 8GB GamingPro (to Ebuyer)
- Zotac RTX 3070 Ti 8GB Trinity (to Ebuyer)
- Asus RTX 3070 Ti 8GB TUF Gaming (to Ebuyer)
- Gigabyte RTX 3070 Ti 8GB Eagle (a Scan the UK)
As always, we recommend that you set up an account with your local reseller and fill in as much information as possible in advance. This can help speed up the payment process and possibly prevent disappointments.
We also recommend that you do not cool down furiously. While you may need to play F5 a few times to be one of the first on the page, be careful not to overdo it. You don't want to end up behind a DDoS protection page, as the clock strikes 6 in the morning.

Scanning will be in high demand later today and has strong DDoS protection, so don't be too late. We also recommend that you stay in place for a while; we’ve heard stories from customers who have successfully purchased graphics cards up to 30 minutes after launch.
