Sony’s PlayStation 5 opened pre-orders today, and it’s an utter fiasco so far — there was no communication about when, where, or how to get one without competing with scalpers. But perhaps we can help you get your hands on Nvidia’s new RTX 3080 graphics card, a GPU that finally powers 4K 60fps gaming or better for $700?
Truth be told, we don’t know when all of these retailers will begin — we’ve already seen this MSI card go in and out of stock — but Newegg recently tweeted that orders begin at 6AM PT, and an Nvidia community manager said the same, so that seems like a pretty safe bet. It’ll definitely happen by end-of-day Thursday, because September 17th is launch day.
