Scalpers struggling to sell more than eight RTX 4080 cards a day

Tom’s Hardware has a great analysis of the eBay US sales on GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards. It looks like the RTX 4080 has turned into a true nightmare for scalpers.

The peak demand for RTX 4080 is over, but was there ever a peak? NVIDIA has a hard time convincing gamers to their latest AD103-based model. Sales of RTX 4080 are not great as enthusiast turn their eyes to RTX 4090, which indeed costs more but offers a significant performance boost over RTX 4080.

The numbers don’t lie, and eBay US sales show exactly this trend. The RTX 4090 now outsells RTX 4080 by a factor of 3.4. NVIDIA’s gamble to launch another $1000+ card has clearly not paid off. And it’s even worse for people benefiting from scarcity which is typically associated with new hardware releases. Not with RTX 4080, fortunately (and unfortunately for scalpers).

RTX 4080 on eBay

  • GeForce RTX 4080 sales numbers are incredibly low compared to the flagship, with the RTX 4090 outselling the RTX 4080 3.4 to 1.
  • An average of eight RTX 4080 graphics cards are sold per day on eBay US.
  • Sales of the RTX 4080 on eBay have flat-lined or declined since the launch date.
  • The average RTX 4080 on eBay is priced about 30% over MSRP, which is noticeably less lucrative than the RTX 4090 (38% over MSRP).
  • The average RTX 4090 price on eBay during its first week was 54% over MSRP, with 64 cards sold per day.
  • In the wake of the RTX 4080 launch, the flagship 4090 seems to be getting more popular.

NVIDIA RTX 4080 is not in short supply, on the contrary, it is easily available, with more cards reaching the market each day. Since the card launched, only 65 cards were sold on eBay. This means that on average, only 8 RTX 4080 cards are sold each day.

Scalpers may soon be forced to lower their absurd prices and maybe even consider selling them at a loss. Things may get even more complicated for NVIDIA once AMD launches its Radeon RX 7900 series in just three weeks. Both of the upcoming Radeon cards are to cost less than $1,000 (at least as long as reference models are considered).
