The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, the latest graphics card from Nvidia, will be available worldwide from $1,199 on June 3, the California-based technology company announced Monday.

The new graphics card will hit retail shelves at 6 a.m. PT and is expected to be available at several major outlets including Best Buy, Amazon, B&H and Newegg.

The new gaming flagship of the GeForce RTX graphics card series will be "available for purchase as custom boards—including stock-clocked and factory-overclocked models— from leading add-in card providers, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galax, GIGABYTE, Inno3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, Zotac and other regional providers around the world," Nvidia said Monday.

"Limited-edition NVIDIA Founders Edition boards will also be available. Look for GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPUs at major retailers and etailers, as well as in gaming systems from major manufacturers and leading system builders worldwide," the company added.

At Best Buy, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will only be available in stores, according to its website.

In a statement Wednesday, the retailer said "limited quantities" of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition will be available for its in-store promotional sale on June 3 at select venues across the country.

The company stated: "Employees at participating stores will start handing out tickets at 7:30 a.m. local time. We'll have as many tickets as graphics cards available at each store, which means if a customer gets a ticket, they will be guaranteed the opportunity to purchase a graphics card inside the store beginning at 9 a.m. local time.

"Graphics cards are limited to one per customer," the statement noted.
