You'd think that the arrival of Nvidia's RTX 3080 and the imminent announcement of AMD's Big Navi GPUs would result in a spate of great graphics card deals from retailers looking shift old stock, but alas, you'd be wrong.

Update: many retailers are now out of stock of the RTX 3090, so here's an update on UK and US availability.Nvidia's monstrous RTX 3090 is upon us.

Having a graphics card inside your PC is crucial, as you won't be able to play all your favourite games without it.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090: release date, where to buy, price and specs

Here’s where you can actually buy an RTX 3080 right now

The RTX 3080 went on sale yesterday for seemingly all two minutes before it vanished into a puff of broken websites, out of stock stickers and ludicrous Ebay scalpers.

Fortnite now supports ray-tracing, because why not?

What does Fortnite need ray-tracing for, anyway? Epic's blockbuster murderfest isn't exactly gunning for hard realism, after all. Regardless, RTX ray tracing brings high-fidelity reflections, shadows and ambient occlusion to Fortnite today, alongside support for DLSS 2.0 to run those high-res rays at an agreeable frame rate. Fine, you've got me - I'll admit it does look quite nice after all.
