If you’ve been waiting for cheaper third-party GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards to arrive since the Founders Edition was unveiled a few months ago, B&H Photo’s discount on the RTX 2080 might be a sign that this trend is close to kicking into gear.
Until supply runs out, you can get Zotac’s GeForce RTX 2080 AMP GPU for $699 — $100 cheaper than its usual price. You’ll also get a free digital copy of Battlefield V with purchase. According to Zotac’s product page for the RTX 2080 AMP, this GPU’s clock speed can be boosted to 1,830MHz, which is just beyond the standard Nvidia’s Founders Edition card in its overclocked state, and well above what Nvidia sets as the reference clock speed for the RTX 2080.
At $699, the RTX 2080 now falls within range of the older GTX 1080 Ti — a card that, up to this point, we were somewhat comfortable recommending for those who want to game at 4K resolution. So if you’re on the hunt for a new graphics card that’s equipped to handle ray tracing, there’s currently no better or cheaper option than this RTX 2080.
