NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 becomes Newegg’s bestseller, RTX 4090 takes third place

NVIDIA’s RTX 40 series graphics cards including the GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 seem to be very popular among PC users who are looking for the best graphics for their PC. Newegg knows this, with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 as the top selling graphics card, with the flagship RTX 4090 GPU at number three among shoppers.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 takes the best selling GPU spot at Newegg followed by the RTX 4090 in a close third place

This news comes as a surprise as recent reports have shown that the GeForce RTX 4080 is lacking in sales across the market. Newegg reports that the best seller in the store is the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4080 Gaming OC graphics card ($1,269.99). Interestingly, previous-generation graphics cards, such as NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti models, remain a top five favorite with consumers due to the lower prices found in the RTX 30 series GPUs.

AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6600 are even further behind the top-of-the-line RTX 4090 GPU, though the NVIDIA graphics card is currently $1,599.99 and both AMD models are $479 and $329, respectively. However, Newegg’s competitor Amazon offers different graphics cards selling differently from the PC vendor.

Amazon reveals that the best-selling graphics card is the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060. The RTX 4080 and 4090 are far behind in sales. For example, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090 is in fifteenth place, while the RTX 4080 is around twenty-eighth. What could cause such a dramatic difference in sales? A few factors come into play when comparing Newegg vs Amazon. Amazon is a global seller of more than just PC hardware and components. The online retail giant also sells books, clothes, movies, and more, while Newegg is more central to what you might find through them.

Additionally, there has always been a history of review moderation online, as Amazon seems to be in the spotlight for third-party sellers who “upgrade” their products to a five-star rating. And since retailers don’t display sales in numbers of units sold, Newegg or Amazon has outperformed the other in specific GPUs, making it difficult to say which graphics card is truly the best-selling.

AMD has released the Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX variants ($899 and $999), and on Newegg the cards are at the bottom of the list, even with the great prices. This could change dramatically over the next month as the tech giant has reportedly shipped around 200,000 units for supply in the fourth quarter of 2022. We may have to wait to see the best-selling card of 2022 beyond the end of the year to see if AMD’s numbers change.
