Something to look forward to: The Founders Editions of Nvidia’s Ampere cards will be here soon, and while plenty of consumers are poised to snap one up asap, some prefer to wait for third-party cards from AIB partners. Thanks to a German website, we now have an idea of how much they will cost.

Nvidia launches the $699 RTX 3080 on September 17 with the $1,499 RTX 3090 following a week later on September 24. If you’re eyeing an aftermarket card with their overclocked GPUs and memory, better components, and improved cooling solutions—an important element when it comes to Ampere—German retail site Caseking.de has listed several models.

Thanks to a tweet from prolific leaker @momomo_us, we know the price for a number of SKUs from Gigabyte, Asus, Zotac INNO3D, PNY, Asus, and INNO3D.

Tom's Hardware helpfully converted the prices from Euros to US dollars. In Europe, the RTX 3080 Founders Edition costs $710, while the RTX 3090 is $1531.

Caseking.de prices for RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 cards

Make & Model Price
Zotac GAMING RTX 3090 Trinity $1694.73
Zotac GAMING RTX 3080 Trinity $795.11
Gigabyte RTX 3080 Gaming OC $776.01
Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC $747.97
Gigabyte RTX 3090 Gaming OC $1617.00
Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC $1583.87
INNO3D RTX 3080 iChill X4 $769.63
INNO3D RTX 3080 iChill X3 $759.44
INNO3D RTX 3080 Twin X2 $751.80
INNO3D RTX 3090 iChill X4 $1578.78
INNO3D RTX 3090 Gaming X3 $1558.15
INNO3D RTX 3090 iChill X3 $1586.62
PNY RTX 3080 XLR8 Gaming EPIC-X RGB $731.74
PNY RTX 3090 XLR8 Gaming EPIC-X RGB $1559.66
Asus RTX 3090 TUF Gaming $1611.91
Asus RTX 3080 ROG Strix $795.36
Asus RTX 3080 TUF Gaming $779.38
Asus RTX 3090 ROG Strix $1699.51

Note that none of the cards, even the lower-end models, are cheaper than the Founders Editions, likely due to their size and powerful cooling systems. Asus’ high-end ROG Strix 3090 is an eye-watering $1,699.51, around $170 more than the Founders Edition in Europe.

No word on when these cards will arrive, but we shouldn’t have too long to wait. There’s no sign of the RTX 3070, which releases in October priced at $499.

Nvidia recently boasted that the RTX 3080 would be able to hit over 100 fps in many top titles at 4K with max settings and RTX on. AMD, not wanting to be forgotten, is reminding people that Big Navi is on the way with a Radeon 6000 Easter egg in Fortnite. We've also heard that team red might release a 16GB model that undercuts the RTX 3080.

I understand they can't make this stuff free, but this is getting ridiculous. I remember when the 8800 ultra came out and everyone thought the $700 price tag was insane.

However, I will remain open minded going into this. If the 3090 has twice the performance of the 3080 then I suppose the price is justified. Looking at the size of the 3090's heatsink I wouldn't find that surprising.

3090 is 100% not double the speed of 3080, I would be surprised if you got extra 40% and that's a push, this is why in my opinion the rumored 20GB RTX3080 will probably be the best buy if the price doesn't exceed $899 - $999

The 3090 is going to be about 20% faster than the 3080. The 3090 is the Titan level product. Titan level products were never known for value, at least as gaming cards. If you are looking for value, it's always best to avoid the top of the line card. The 3080 and 3070 looks to be pretty fast. I'm actually surprised that the 3080 will probably be a better value than the 3070. The 3080 will probably be close to 50% faster but only about 17% more expensive. Hopefully AMD's offerings are fast too and we see some competition bring prices down.

I don't understand why the price is an issue.

"Gamers" don't need much more than a 3070 which is being released at $499.

Cards like 3080 and 3090 are for professionals. If you can't afford it, buy something cheaper.

"Professionals" - especially Youtubbers and editors will make their money back on these purchases within a month.

And if all else fails, there's plenty of lightly used 2080Ti's on the market for $500!!!

The 2080Ti was a 1080p and 1440p beast with Ray Tracing.


There are some 2080Ti owners who will buy a second identical 2080Ti and use the bridge to run dual cards.

There will be a market for 2080Ti cards for a considerable time.

How much is nVidia paying you?

I wouldn't pay more than $350 for a 2nd hand 2080Ti at this point.

And I'll happily be buying one when they're available at as close to that price as possible.

But I sure would like a 3080...

The 3070 is the answer to everyone's prayers.

But rather than just buy that...ooooh now, I need to spend way, way more.

Come on AMD! We need some pressure on these prices. I don't want to pay $100 over MSRP on my 3070 in October.
You can ask AMD to put pressure on the market all you want but I doubt they would like to release products just to help sell their competition's. If people want AMD to compete with Nvidia just so they can get Nvidia products for cheap, then (IMO) they shouldn't compete at all.

Never heard of INNO3D before. I typically buy MSI graphic cards. Bummed not to see their prices listed, but imagine they're in the same ballpark as the others. I'll be jumping on the highest clocked 3080 I can find as soon as they become available.

It has 20 percent more cuda cores then the 3080. Only "justifying" it by saying it "not a consumer card" with 24 gb of ram but clearly this is not a titan or a quadro.

That is the exception not the norm.

He is correct you will generally see them from $500-$700 used. And you still have some clowns asking $1000+ for them depending on where you look.
The price is only going to go down regardless of an exception. Point is you can get one at that price if you look hard enough. Not sure why that triggers some people?

Since when is a difference of opinon being "Triggered"

That term get tossed around far to much when you can't see the person on the other end. or even know if they are smiling or taking a bath while typing out a message lol.

As 2080ti-equivalent new xbox will only cost $499, nvidia needs to reduce price of 3070.

The xbox series x isn't a 2080ti equivalent.

It's barley a 2080s one and really it best compared to the 2080 itself.

These cards are delivery anywhere from 50%-100% more power over that.

NV own marketing material reference Titan in it. So it this not good enough or does it have to save Geforce Titan?

Until the consoles are out and a direct comparison is done you cannot make this statement like its a fact.

You say that but what dot he hundreds of other users on the avsforum owners thread on the 4k/OLED TV's do to power our 4k/120hz panels?


Many gamers have moved on beyond the days of 1440p / 60hz gaming you seem to think every is stuck at.

4k high refresh rate is going to take serious power and the display aren't coming their here I've had one now for over a year and just been waiting for even a single hdmi 2.1 device to launch so I could even experience my screen the way it was meant to be at 4k/120hz.


Of the cards released only the 3090 has a real shot of keeping the display happy and like I said I'm but one of many 1000s of others with the itch to game and get the most out of their new toys.
