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.

Welcome to the drought. Stock disappeared a few hours into launch day and we've struggled to find anymore since.
However, it's not all bad news for America, as a recent Newegg Shuffle had some RTX 3080 Ti cards up for grabs, and Best Buy's supplementing its online stock with in-store options (opens in new tab). Keep checking Tom's Hardware (and follow us on Twitter) to see live updates when stock returns.

Well, the good news is Amazon does have one RTX 3080 Ti available on their landing page. The bad news is that it's $2,529 — joining its other heavily scalped family members. But the existence of a landing page at least shows you can expect Amazon to drop more listings soon.
