Retailers have started decommissioning the last-gen Ampere cards, starting from the top of the stack. The GeForce RTX 3090 and 3090 Ti have already been replaced by the RTX 4090 and 4080 across every major online store. The RTX 3080 is on the same path. The RTX 4070 Ti release will further accelerate the process. We had a look at some popular retailers and got the following data:
BestBuy, Microcenter, and BHPhotoVideo have straight-up discontinued the RTX 3090, while Newegg and Amazon are selling the few remaining units at a fat markup. The same can be said for the RTX 3090 Ti.
Newegg has priced the RTX 3090 at around $1,700-$1,800 for both the Founders Edition and board partner variants. The Zotac Gaming Trinity is the exception, with the weakest PCB of the lot. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is even scarce, with a starting price of $1,799 for the Founders Edition and $2,069 for the AIC models.
The GeForce RTX 3080 can still be had for MSRP at some stores, but now that the RTX 4070 Ti is out, it won’t be long before the shelves are cleared out:
BHPhotoVideo and BestBuy have already discontinued the RTX 3080, while Microcenter and Newegg still have some units left. The latter still has some SKUs for its $699 MSRP if you’re willing to go for some lesser-known brands.
