Best Buy has listed the Founders Edition version of the new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti priced at $ 1,200. And if you’re in the market for one of the green team’s most enthusiastic cards, this is surely the one you want; it will be cheaper than just about any third-party card and much cheaper than the ones you’ll find from small retailers that charge the GPU mining nightmare.
And we don’t even want to get close to what you’ll find in detail on Ebay.
The $ 1,200 price of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti may seem super high at first glance … who am I kidding? It really is super high. When the GeForce RTX 3080 can get seriously in the frame rate race to earn considerably less money, the extreme price of the RTX 3080 Ti sticker feels painfully high, even if it can practically match the new size of GeForce RTX 3090 in games.
So yes, it’s a very powerful gaming graphics card and eats 4K games for breakfast, and in a normal GPU world, we’d be happily talking about it like the Titan-esque card.
But when a full retail version is released tomorrow, June 3, you’ll still want to be in line for a version of MSRP Founders Edition if you want a new graphics card. Of course, there are some third-party GPUs that will be released to MSRP, such as Zotac and Asus, and may have slightly higher cooling, but will likely still have the same chip coolers as their RTX 3080 ancestors.
And we think the brightest cover of FAITH looks prettier, right, Jacob?

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is a graphics card for 4K gaming, just like the Nvidia RTX 3090. Best Buy is the only chance to get a Founders Edition card in the United States, and it is arguably the most attractive version of the card. There are some third-party MSRP options, but many will far exceed that $ 1,200 price tag.
Okay, but what makes it a "bargain"?
Despite the recent fall in the fortunes of the demon's cryptocurrencies, the GPU market remains a barren nightmare, populated only by groups of mercenaries who shoot to make money from desperate PC gamers and voracious crypto monsters. .
Unprecedented shortages and demand have caused prices on the wild west border of retail to skyrocket, which is what makes the price of the RTX 3080 Ti PVP a frankly depressing deal.
At Amazon, that $ 1,200 will only allow you to get an AMD RX 6700 XT. It's a decent card in itself, but a GPU that's not a patch of this enthusiastic GeForce silicon. There are even GeForce RTX 3060 cards nearly $ 1,200. And the AMD RX 6800 XT? Well, it's almost $ 2K, and you'll find some overclocked RTX 3080 Ti cards.
Damn, even the RX 580 retails for over $ 700 today. After all, he was one of the cryptographic brigade’s favorites.
Real-world comparative prices are an indicator of the wear and tear of the graphics card market today and a miserable sign of the times.
