The GeForce RTX 3080 TI is officially set to go on sale starting today and Newegg has announced on Twitter that Nvidia's latest and almost greatest gaming GPU will be available tomorrow at 6 AM PT via its Newegg Shuffle.
For those who don't know, the Newegg Shuffle is a system deployed by the e-tailer giant to draw among potential customers when the product demanded is facing supply constraints and such, something which perfectly applies to graphics cards these days due to ether mining and generally to most other silicon too.

Nvidia launched the RTX 3080 Ti on June 1. It was rumored that Team Green would pin the card as a direct competitor against rival AMD's 16GB RX 6900 XT at the $999 price point. However, that clearly didn't happen and instead, the card was unveiled for a price 20% higher at $1,199. In terms of specifications, the 3080 Ti comes equipped with 10,240 Ampere CUDA cores and packs 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM across a 384-bit wide memory bus.
Alongside the 3080 Ti, Nvidia also announced the RTX 3070 Ti which will be available for $699 on June 10th. This one packs 6,144 Ampere CUDA cores and comes with 8GB of GDDR6X VRAM across a 256-bit wide memory interface.
