The Nvidia RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070 graphics cards have been announced and they are available now. The cards sold out in a short period of time and now there are some models that you can buy. Here are some custom RTX 3080 variants that you can buy from Amazon right now.
Note: Some of the prices can be inflated due to high demand and low supply. We recommend buying cards as close to MSRP as possible. If you miss your chance or are late then you can come back later around Christmas for the next restock.

Custom Nvidia RTX 3080 Graphics Cards From Amazon
While these are custom versions, they are still an RTX 3080 at the core. The following are the specifications of the reference design model for reference:
- CUDA Cores: 8,704
- Boost Clock: 1.71GHz
- VRAM: 10GB GDDR6X
- Memory Interface: 320-bit
- TDP: 320W
- Required power connectors: 2 x PCIe 8-pin
With that out of the way, it is worth mentioning that the boost clock speeds of the custom cards are not available. Nvidia does not allow AIB partners to market the boost clock speeds and for that reason, we do not what they are until the cards are released.
The following are the different custom RTX 3080 graphics cards that we have spotted from different AIB partners on Amazon:
The following are the RTX 3080 listings that we have from Asus:
This is yet another triple fan design. This one is from Asus and is part of the TUF series so you know that it is going to last a while. This is supposed to be on the cheaper side of the spectrum. There is some RGB lighting on the card but it is nothing too fancy.
The card has a pretty beefy cooler and you should get away with overclocking. It comes in all black so it should blend in well with the rest of your build.
If you have other Asus components in your build or peripherals that you are using then you can sync the RGB lighting.
The boost clock speeds of the graphics card is in line with the reference design model but you might be able to get a better overclock from the custom cooler as compared to the reference design model if that is something that you are interested in.
Here we have the ASUS TUF Gaming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 OC, which is similar to the graphics card that we have seen above but it comes with a factory overclock out of the box. The graphics card has a boost clock speed of 1785 MHz compared to the reference design model that can boost to 1710 MHz.
Other than that, the card is similar to the non-OC model.
Here we have the ROG Strix 3080 from Asus and as the name implies, this comes with a factory overclock out of the box. We can confirm that the card can boost to 1935 MHz which is higher than the 1710 MHz boost clock of the reference design model. You might also be able to get away which a higher overclock if that is something that you are interested in.
This is a triple fan card that comes with plenty of RGB lighting which is pretty common for Asus gaming products. For outputs you have 3x DP and 2x HDMI.
The following are the RTX 3080 listings that we have from Gigabyte:
Like all the other cards on this list, this is also a triple-fan card. This is an odd design compared to the others but this is still a custom RTX 3080 so the performance is going to be on par with the reference design if now better. This is an OC version so it is going to have a factory overclock out of the box.
The card has a subtle design and will fit right into your build. It does not have much flashiness or bling but it will get the job done and offer the performance of an RTX 3080.
Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming OC
This is another triple-fan card from Gigabyte and the design is similar but the color scheme looks much better. The black and grey design is something that we have already seen in previous-generation cards.
The naming scheme suggests that this is also going to be a factory overclocked card so you are going to get higher boost clocks out of the box. We do not know what the boost clock is as Nvidia does not allow AIB partners to reveal that but we should know in a few days.
Other than that, there is an RGB zone on the shroud. It is not as large as some other models but it is a cool feature to look at. The Gigabyte logo lights up as well.
The following are the Nvidia RTX 3080 custom design listings from Zotac:
The Trinity series cards come with a rather interesting shroud design. The coolers are pretty aggressive and the ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity is another triple-fan card. The cooler is very beefy and will be able to deal with overclocking.
The RGB lighting on the side will look really cool if you have a case with a side panel. We do not know the boost clock speed of the graphics card but it should match the performance of the reference design is not better.
Zotac is known for making some really great graphics cards at a lower price point, so if you are looking to pre-order an RTX 3080 then this is an option that might work for you.
The following are the listings from PNY:
We start things off with the PNY GeForce RTX 3080 10GB XLR8 Gaming Epic-X. This si a triple-fan card with plenty of RGB lighting on the shroud. This is a very interesting design and is a bit different from the other cards that we have seen. The card comes in grey and black.
The following are the listings from EVGA:
Next, we have the EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3. There is an RGB lighting zone on the shroud and there is a logo on the back as well. The design is “different”. It comes in black and should blend in well with the rest of your build. This is also a triple-fan card.
The design of the EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 ULTRA is similar to the non-Ultra. The naming scheme would have us believe that this model will have higher clock speeds.
The EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 XC3 BLACK has the triple fan design but does not come with the RGB shroud.
The EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 XC3 Ultra is similar to the EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 XC3 but the naming has us believe that this model will have a higher clock speed.
The following are the listings from MSI:
The MSI RTX 3080 Ventus 3X 10G OC has a nice gunmetal finish which we have seen from MSI before. This is another triple-fan card. The naming would have us believe that this card will have a factory overclock out of the box.
MSI RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio is also a triple-fan card and the naming scheme would have us believe that this model will have higher clock speeds.
These are all the custom Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics cards that you can pre-order from Amazon right now. More listings are going to show up as we get closer to launch and we will update this article as soon as they go live. So stay tuned for more pre-order listings.
