As we enter a new age of video game graphics, reliance on pieces of hardware like the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 is becoming more and more prevalent. Ray Tracing, for one, is a benchmark feature for titles pushing the limits of game graphics and everyone wants their favorite title to feature it.

Below, if you're still looking, we have the latest Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 stock update. Fair warning, it's not looking too good.

RTX 3080 Stock Update

As you might expect, it isn't getting any easier to get an RTX 3080 at the moment (sorry this isn't the stock update you were hoping for!)

There are reports from all over that the reason for the stock shortage is two-fold. Alongside the general impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lack of raw materials and the Chinese New Year is being blamed for the lull in production and supply of RTX 3080's to retailers.

If we check StockInformer, it also confirms our suspicions...


The RTX 3080 is out of stock at all major PC hardware retailers in the UK. However, as you might imagine, there is stock on auction sites like eBay and CEX may have a second-hand one if you're desperate.

These aren't going to price fixed at the RRP like other retailers and caution should always be used with eBay. However, they should have some stock knocking about.
