The launch date is not far, at the time of writing it’s just shy of two weeks to go until pre orders for the RTX 4080 are shipped.
As we saw with the release of the RTX 4090, stock levels for the GPU might not be enough for everyone to get one. One of the best ways to guarantee you get stock is via pre order, and though pre orders haven’t technically begun we’re going to show you where we think you’ll have the best chances of grabbing one this year.
We expect pre orders to be filled quickly, and usually they only go live a few days before the actual release date, so if you miss out on a pre order have a look where to buy the RTX 4080.
Where to pre order the RTX 4080 from?
Though pre orders haven’t gone live yet, we saw pre orders available on Amazon and Best Buy (which covers the US and Canada), and in the UK from Overclockers, Ebuyer, and Scan.
Alongside trying to pre order online, several tech retailers in the UK will have pre orders available for the RTX 4080. Currys is an example of a popular high street retailer that might stock the RTX 4080.
