Wondering where to buy the Nvidia RTX 4080 when it goes live? You’re going to need our help. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 goes on sale on Wednesday November 16 at 9am ET / 6am PT / 2PM GMT (those times may change, as this is based on when the RTX 4090 went on sale).
Speaking of the RTX 4080’s bigger sibling, the RTX 4090 sold out almost instantly when it launched on October 12 (we’re still keeping an eye on potential stock in our where to buy the RTX 4090 live blog).
With the Nvidia RTX 4080 offering an impressive amount of power, but for less money, we can imagine this GPU selling out incredibly quickly as well, especially if people who couldn’t get an RTX 4090 then try to get the 4080 to tide them over.
So, if you’re wondering where to buy the Nvidia RTX 4080 you’ll need all the help you can get, and we’ll help by listing all the places you can buy from when stock goes live.
The day is here! The Nvidia RTX 4080 goes on sale today, Wednesday November 16 at Wednesday November 16 at 9am ET / 6am PT / 2PM GMT, and pages have already started popping up from retailers, showing you what’s on offer.
Keep those pages open as they could crash once the GPUs go live. We’ll be running this live blog to help you out as well, and will highlight everywhere that has stock, giving you the best chance to get hold of the new GPU.

While we wait for the RTX 4080 to go on sale in a few hours, make sure you check out our Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 review.
It was a tricky GPU to review, to be honest. While it’s undoubtedly one of the best graphics cards at the moment, and performs amazingly in games (out performing the mighty RTX 3090 Ti), it’s also incredibly expensive. Selling for around $1,299/£1,269 for the Founders Edition, it’s a lot more expensive than the RTX 3080.
The price means that it’s not too far off the RTX 4090 when it comes to price. So if you are spending so much money anyway, should you skip the RTX 4080 and go for the RTX 4090 instead?
While that’s what I’d recommend to a lot of enthusiasts, there is a problem: the RTX 4090 remains extremely hard to buy. Without being able to get stock of the RTX 4090, then the RTX 4080 will (for a few hours today, at least) be the best GPU you can buy right now.
We do expect the RTX 4080 to sell out quickly, though, so you’ll need to be fast.

One of the best things you can do while waiting for the RTX 4080 to go on sale is to get prepared ahead of the stock getting released. Have the retailer pages at the top of this page open in preparation. You may find in the rush to buy an RTX 4080 that the websites crash and will not let you get in, so having them open and ready to go ahead of time is essential.
