Enthusiasts who have been struggling to get their hands on one of NVIDIA’s popular GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards may want to consider stopping by Best Buy early in the morning tomorrow, as the electronics retailer will finally have some for sale again.

Per tradition, only select Best Buy stores will be participating in this GeForce RTX 30 Series in-store only event. The official list can be found here. (The site appears to keep going down due to traffic, but keep trying.)

Readers may want to avoid a spreadsheet from GPU Restock Monitor that’s being shared by major outlets (see tweet below). It suggests that the chain will have as many as 17,000 GeForce RTX 30 Series units to sell in total, but the list doesn’t seem to be accurate. The locations don’t fully line up with Best Buy’s information.

The list also claims that GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, GeForce RTX 3070, and GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards will be available, but it’s unclear which models Best Buy might actually be selling.

NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards are, of course, limited to one per purchasing customer.

Blue Shirts at participating stores will start handing out tickets at 7:30 a.m. local time that morning. We’ll hand out one ticket per purchasing customer in line. If you get a ticket, you will be guaranteed the opportunity to purchase a graphics card inside the store beginning at 8 a.m. local time.

    Voodoo cards have surprisingly high value for collectors even today, even though they are functionally worthless for modern games. Nostalgia is a powerful drug.

  7. Just thought I’d share. Nvidia said they were shipping 17,000 cards to best buy. BB has 1000 stores. That’s 7 cards per store.

    lol

    DOH!

    Yeah, 17 per store. Still not that many, given the current demand.

    I am betting more popular stores get more units and so on. But yea that’s not a lot of cards for pent up demand.

  11. Just as a thought more than anything, I wonder how many cards it would take to satisfy current demand

    Start with about 200k, and see how long that takes to sell, At lower quantities, after miners grab an over sized share, it enables scalpers to buy out the rest of the stock.
