the micro center First retailer to display prices of Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 4080 graphics card. Pricing starts at Nvidia’s advertised MSRP of $1199, but most cards easily surpass this, with AIB’s flagship card peaking at $1,549.99, just $50 less than the RTX 4090’s MSRP. The Ada LoveLace GPU will be available on November 16th in both Aftermarket and Founders Edition models.
Micro Center has a total of 13 RTX 4080 listings from five companies: Asus, PNY, Zotac, Gigabyte and MSI. Gigabyte has the most listings at 4, with the Eagle model starting at $1,999.99, the OC version starting at $1,239.99, and the Gaming variant jumping up to $1,269.99. The most expensive Gigabyte model is $1,349.99 and comes with the top-of-the-line Aorus Master version. Unfortunately, Gigabyte’s Aorus Xtreme model hasn’t arrived yet, but we expect that version to be released soon.
Asus has three MicroCenter listings featuring two RTX 4080 TUF variants and the flagship RTX 4080 ROG Strix. The first RTX 4080 TUF variant (non-OC version) starts at $1,199.99, while the second will feature a factory overclock at a significantly higher $1,499.99. I’m not sure why the price is so high, but if you’re looking to buy one of these cards, the slight 100 MHz clock speed boost isn’t worth the extra $300. Especially if one of these GPUs can be overclocked. yourself.
Surprising no one, Asus’ ROG Strix RTX 4080 with its incredibly massive triple-fan cooler design is the most expensive 4080 GPU in MicroCenter’s arsenal at $1,549.99.
Like Asus, MSI has three 4080 listings on their MicroCenter website, featuring the MSI RTX 4080 Ventus, Gaming X Trio and Gaming X Trio OC variants. The Ventus is the cheapest model at $1,279.99. Sitting in the middle is his Gaming X Trio with a $1,324.99 reference clock and an overclocked version at his $1,399.99.
Zotac has two listings on the Micro Center website, including Trinity and AMP Extreme. Trinity is priced at $1,199.99 and AMP Extreme is priced at $1,399.99. Curiously, there is no Zotac factory overclocked Trinity OC, but we hope to see that card soon.
Rounding out the five brands is PNY, which currently only has one RTX 4080 listed on Micro Center’s website. The model listed is the RTX 4080 XLR 8 Gaming Verto Epic-X RGB for $1,199.99.
Closer to the RTX 4090
The RTX 4080 will be a very expensive graphics card, priced well over four figures and just below Nvidia’s MSRP for the RTX 4090.
If you buy an RTX 4080 in the future, consider how far away you are from the RTX 4090. If the budget for the RTX 4080 could hit $1,500, we recommend considering the RTX 4090. Cards are available for as little as $50 extra on select models.
