NVIDIA’s RTX 40 series graphics cards, including the GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080, seem to be quite popular among PC users looking for the best graphics for their computing devices. Newegg knows this, as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 has taken its top spot in the top-selling graphics card list, with the flagship RTX 4090 GPU taking the No. 3 spot among buyers.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 is the top-selling GPU on Newegg, followed by the RTX 4090 in a close 3rd place
This news really comes as a surprise as recent reports have shown that the GeForce RTX 4080 has been underselling in the market. Newegg reports that the store’s top seller 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 in the top 5 consumer favorites due to the lower price found in the RTX 30 series GPUs.
AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6600 are further behind the most expensive RTX 4090 GPU, though NVIDIA’s graphics card currently costs $1,599.99, and both AMD models are priced at $479 and $329, respectively. dollar However, Newegg’s competitor, Amazon, lists different top-selling graphics cards that differ from PC seller.

Amazon reveals that the best-selling graphics card is the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060. The RTX 4080 and 4090 cards are much more affordable. For example, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090 is ranked 15th, while the RTX 4080 is almost twice as far behind at 28th. What could cause such a dramatic difference in sales? Several factors play into the comparison between Newegg and Amazon. Amazon sells more than just computer hardware and components around the world. The online retail giant also sells books, clothing, movies, and more, while Newegg is more focused on what you’ll find through them.
Additionally, there’s always been a history of review moderation on the web, with Amazon seemingly taking the spotlight for third-party sellers “softening” their products with five-star ratings. And since retailers don’t display sales by the number of units sold, Newegg or Amazon could be outselling others on specific GPUs, making it hard to tell which graphics card is actually the best-selling.
AMD has released Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX versions ($899 and $999), and Newegg has the cards at the bottom of the list, even at fantastic prices. This could change dramatically over the next month as the tech giant has reportedly shipped around 200,000 units for its Q4 2022 delivery. After the end of the year, the best-selling card of 2022, we may have to wait to see if the AMD numbers change.
