Tom’s Hardware has a great record of GeForce RTX 40 sales on eBay in the United States. The RTX 4080 seems to have been a horrifying experience for scalpers.
Demand for RTX 4080 has passed its peak, but was there really a spike? NVIDIA is struggling to convince players to buy their newer AD103-based model. Many gamers look to the RTX 4090 instead of the RTX 4080 because it costs more but has a huge performance advantage.
This trend can certainly be seen in the increasing number of US transactions on eBay. The RTX 4090 sells at a rate 3.4 times higher than the RTX 4080. NVIDIA’s bet to release another $1000+ card fell through. And for those who get an advantage due to the limited supply of a newly released piece of gear, the situation is dire; however, not with the RTX 4080.
•Sales of the GeForce RTX 4080 are extremely low compared to the flagship, with the RTX 4090 outselling the RTX 4080 by 3.4 to 1.
•About eight RTX 4080 graphics cards are sold daily on eBay in the United States.
•Since its release, sales of the RTX 4080 on eBay have stagnated or declined.
•Compared to the RTX 4090’s average markup of 38% over MSRP, the RTX 4080’s average markup of 30% over MSRP is significantly lower.
•In the first week, an average of 64 RTX 4090 cards were sold daily and the average retail price was 54% above MSRP.
•After the RTX 4080, the flagship 4090 seems to be gaining popularity.

The NVIDIA RTX 4080 isn’t hard to find; on the contrary, new cards are constantly being released, making it a good choice for gamers. Since the card’s release, only 65 cards have been sold on eBay. This indicates that an average of only 8 RTX 4080 cards are sold per day.
Some speculate that scalpers may soon be forced to lower their ridiculous prices and may consider selling at a loss. Things could get significantly more complicated for NVIDIA when AMD releases its Radeon RX 7900 series in three weeks. Both future Radeon GPUs are expected to cost less than $1,000.
