PC gamers have had a difficult time acquiring Nvidia’s latest generation of ray-tracing enabled GPU’s, like the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, thanks to scalpers and miners. This GPU shortage has been so bad that gaming laptops as of late have become a fairly approachable value proposition. Historically, gaming laptops charge a premium for their form factor and for coming pre-built, much like pre-assembled desktop PCs.
This situation could change soon, however, as Best Buy may be getting restocks of the 30-series cards October 1st. As reported by our sister-site PC Gamer, Twitter account GPURestock, which has leaked GPU restocks in the past, posted a tweet showing a search using the Best Buy app.
If users search for RTX and filter for “items in stock,” the app shows listings for your store’s pending Founder’s Edition RTX cards ranging from the 3060 to the 3080.
