Massive GPU stock: RTX 3070 Ti goes on sale and RTX 3080 in stock at Best Buy Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

Update: As we reported, Best Buy has a number of RTX GPU options in stock right now, with the RTX 3080 available to buy – at least for now.

Our GPU restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider knows we’ll see new RTX graphics cards in stock soon through his retailer sources; we haven’t seen Best Buy RTX 3070 Ti stock yet today. He’ll send you Twitter alerts – if you follow his Twitter account and turn on notifications.

RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards were part of today’s Newegg Shuffle (which is now over) and Best Buy and Amazon could be next. RTX GPU stock alerts will look like this:

People dislike this ‘lottery’ method of buying GPU stock, but manufacturer websites are unable to handle the volume of traffic sent to their pages. Other tactics are being used to thwart bots: EVGA, for example, allows its EVGA Elite members exclusive access on the 3070 Ti by 24 hours (non-members have a chance to buy it tomorrow, June 11).

The fact that the RTX 3070 Ti is on sale for the first time today, June 10, means it’s going to be hard to track down. We did yesterday: we exclusively reported that two retailers would have the RTX 3080 and RTX 3080Ti in stock along with the RTX 3070, RTX 3090 and RTX 3060 yesterday. Sure enough, both Newegg and Antonline came through and so did our GPU alerts.

Trust factor: In addition to helping 39,500 people get next-gen consoles through his Xbox and PS5 restock alerts, Matt is tracking GPU stock in the US. Here’s what we expect to see today and tomorrow from multiple American retailers:

Yesterday (and maybe again this week):

The Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti is going to be in stock in the US for the first time today, June 10, according to Newegg, or at least that’s what we can gather from their official Twitter account’s now-deleted tweet.

We’re going to see plenty of other GPU stock this week and next (confirmed), just like we did on Wednesday (we called it massive for a reason as two retailers in the US had GPUs), including the still-hard-to-find Nvidia RTX 3080.

Here are the places to check for RTX GPU inventory:

Newegg: The Newegg Shuffle went live with the RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3090, RTX 3060. There were also two non-Nvidia graphics cards from AMD: RX 6700 and RX 6900.

For today, Newegg sent out a now-deleted tweet that mentioned that the RTX 3070 Ti from Nvidia will be available as part of its Newegg Shuffle (lottery) at 6am PDT to 10am PDT (so 9am EDT to 1pm PDT). That’s a long four-hour window (longer than many other Newegg Shuffle opportunities). The retailer did the same on the launch day of the RTX 3080 Ti when that GPU launched last week.

Antonline: Next week. Antonline often has RTX graphics cards in stock weekly and pairs them with other components (just like Newegg does). So you’ll also be buying a motherboard, case, monitor or something else with it. The difference with Antonline is that it’s first-come-first-serve (vs Newegg’s lottery), so if you’re fast enough, this is the one to watch. You just have to be okay with a GPU bundles with tons of extras.

Best Buy: Best Buy often has the Nvidia RTX GPUs at their normal MSRP online, and we’ve seen people wait nearly 20 hours in line when it’s an in-store restock (see our RTX 3080 Ti launch line coverage). Because the RTX cards from Best Buy aren’t part of a bundle and because they’re at retail price, they last less than a minute in some cases and we advise people to keep trying until they’re totally sold out.

We’ll let you know if the RTX 3070 Ti is in stock at Best Buy later today.
