The GeForce RTX 4080 doesn't currently occupy a spot on our best graphics cards page, largely due to its price. But it has apparently become the best-selling graphics card on Newegg. Meanwhile, the flagship GeForce RTX 4090 currently sits in fourth place.
Despite reports claiming poor GeForce RTX 4080 sales, according to the U.S. retailer, the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4080 Gaming OC, which usually sells for $1,269.99, has sold the most. However, a graphics card that costs over a grand isn't what everyone needs. The more budget-friendly GeForce SKUs, such as the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and GeForce RTX 3060, remain popular among consumers. Thoaw last-generation Ampere graphics cards sit comfortably in second and third place.
The GeForce RTX 4090 is perhaps the biggest surprise, though. Notwithstanding the eye-watering $1,599 MSRP, the Ada Lovelace graphics card finds itself in the top five, beating more affordable options like the $479 Radeon RX 6700 XT or $329 Radeon RX 6600.
On the other hand, Amazon's top-selling graphics card list shows a different reality. According to Amazon, the GeForce RTX 3060 is the highest-selling graphics card. And the GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4090 are miles away from the GeForce RTX 3060 in terms of sales. The GeForce RTX 4090 sits in the 15th position, whereas the GeForce RTX 4080 is all the way at the bottom in 28th place.
The problem with best-selling lists is that retailers never share the number of units sold. Therefore, we should treat the lists with caution. For example, the GeForce RTX 4080 is reportedly selling well for Newegg. In contrast, Amazon's enjoying great sales from the GeForce RTX 3060. While some may argue that Amazon's data looks more credible, we'll leave that to you to decide. It could also be just down to Amazon being a place for more casual consumers, while Newegg has traditionally courted a more enthusiast PC component audience.
AMD recently launched the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT, starting at $999 and $899, respectively. But while the RDNA 3 graphics cards are in stock at Newegg, they're almost at the bottom of the barrel in terms of sales. The Radeon RX 7900 XT is 88th on Newegg's list, while the Radeon RX 7900 XTX ranks 16th on Amazon's list, with the Radeon RX 7900 XT trailing right behind.
AMD had reportedly prepared over 200,000 units of Radeon RX 7900-series graphics cards for sale, so stock shouldn't be a problem and many sold out on launch day. So, having just launched earlier this week, it will likely take some time before AMD's RDNA 3 offerings penetrate the list of most-sold graphics cards. The fact is that those cards are out there, and Nvidia has some stiff competition, which is good for consumers.
