While Reddit has definitely been going viral due to the recent situation with the GameStop stock, another discussion brews up but this time, not talking about stock but rather suggestions of the best RTX 3080 stock tracker apps.
Where can I buy RTX 3080?
The RTX 3080 restock has definitely been hard to purchase ever since the RTX 3080 release date despite commanding quite a price. Of course, the price of the Nvidia RTX 3080 is very affordable in comparison to the Nvidia RTX 3090 which still commands quite a shocking price for a GPU. Despite popular retailers having them every once in a while, they oftentimes run out very fast.
A certain thread on Reddit posted by u/usrlocalopt talks about how the user tried the distill browser extension, however, it seems quite distracting and also does not really help when the user is away from the computer, which was reportedly when a number of places actually had available stock.
RTX 3080 stock online
The Redditor said that hotstock.io paid tier was also within the options due to allowing more than a single website/product tracking. However, they are still showing Best Buy's very own FE stock to be last available back on October 1. The Redditor then noted that this is wrong since there were actually a few available stocks in the course of the past few days which then made the user question the platform's effectiveness.
It was then stated that distill.io could be another option. However, despite being on top of an alert, it is still almost completely impossible to fight and beat the bots. The Redditor then noted that they have no idea just how the hell are certain people able to get their very own orders through checking out.
RTX 3080 SMS alerts
According to another user ArghZombiesRun, the Redditor had tried to pay for a month of the distill.io basic credit some time yesterday in order to add the SMS alerts and also have the browser checks done locally at a 10 second refresh cycle. The premium costs around $15.
Through some stroke of luck, the Redditor noted that there were 8 palit cards that had just come into stock recently and that the Redditor was able to make a purchase. However, it still remains to be seen as to whether or not the order pushed through and is not cancelled. It was noted, however, that this could really help interested buyers especially if they are willing to leave their own PC on.
If yes, everything then becomes a case of trying to make sure that the users' phone is signed into whatever site that users are trying to track the stock on as well as the payment card already automatically added and etc. The Redditor noted that the tracking was done on the Amazon UK pages. As of the moment, it can be quite hard to get your hands on the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 restock online but the suggestions by these Redditors offer another possible solution.
