Tomorrow, August 26, 2021, a major replacement of Nvidia RTX 30 series graphics cards is taking place in Best Buy stores in the United States. , so pay attention to tired PC builders.
GeForce graphics cards are limited to one per customer, especially one per SKU, and are only available in certain locations. Hopefully this will ease the box madness we’ve been expecting a bit with online retailing this past year for a bit. That said, I suspect we’ll see a few arrive at dawn to have a chance at a new GPU, so don’t get carried away if you expect to be among them.
You can consult the complete list of participating stores on the website Best Buy website (update: now goes to an error page). Or, if you prefer to live dangerously, you can leave a list of location-filtered values posted by your Twitter account GPURestock.
Below are the stock numbers and list of Best Buy stores for the Founders Edition 3000 Restock Series store of approximately 17,000 units. The order on the sheet is: 3090, 3080, 3070, 3060 Ti, 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti https://t.co/ LMOQMjwI9b pic.twitter.com/w1PI7FtLNEAugust 24, 2021

Best Buy is the chosen retailer for Nvidia Founder & # 39; s Edition graphics cards, so that's supposed to be what you'll find in store tomorrow. The aforementioned leak also suggests that this is the case, but Best Buy has not confirmed it on its website.
To get one, you have to be early. Staff will start handing out tickets that guarantee you a graphics card on the day from 7:30 and the store will open from 8:00. This is all local time, depending on the store in question.
Once the tickets have been distributed and the graphics cards have been counted, it is ready for this round of replacements. God speed.
