With the launch of the RTX 3080 in under 10 days, Best Buy is already listing the RTX 3080 Founders Edition for $699.99 on their website. Of course you can't buy it right at this second, you'll have to wait until September 17th before upgrading your gaming rig.


The RTX 3080 is going to be one best graphics cards for high refresh rate, high resolution gaming, we expect it to be a great ray tracing card at 1440P and 4K resolutions. For now we know the card will deliver almost double the performance of the RTX 2080 Ti for half the price.  The RTX 2080 Ti by itself is already a great performer that outclasses everything in gaming performance from the previous generation. This is a exciting time for buyers who want incredible high resolution gaming performance at a more reasonable price.
