The RTX 3080 Ti is finally out, and it's occupying a firm if niche spot in between the regular RTX 3080 and the RTX 3090. That means it's got plenty of power, but also veers (hard) toward the expensive, premium end.
Granted, stock for the best graphics cards is low enough right now that they all basically veer towards the expensive. You can go aftermarket, but as you can see from our GPU Pricing Index, that's not likely to save you much.
With that in mind, we've prepared this guide on how you can snag an RTX 3080 Ti from official sources. We've actually seen stock in Europe lately! Plus, it seems like some American stores, like Best Buy in particular, have learned from past launches. So be sure to read on to find out how different retailers are selling the latest addition to the RTX 30-series family.
