Did You Know NVIDIA has a Verified Priority Access Program for Buying RTX 40 Series GPUs?
Sign Up for Limited Access to RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 Cards
This one got by me somehow, but NVIDIA offered a Verified Priority Access trial program when the GeForce RTX 4090 Founders Edition launched. According to news posted on geforce.com on Wednesday (11/16/2022), NVIDIA will continue testing this program, “with a few new additions”.
Firstly, Verified Priority Access will give a limited number of opportunities to purchase GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards shortly after the worldwide release on November 16th. At the same time, a limited quantity of GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards will also be made available. Invited users will receive a unique link to purchase a single graphics card on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.
Secondly, we are working with our participating etail partners and add-in-card partners to include more GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 models in the Verified Priority Access trial, in addition to NVIDIA’s limited Founders Edition design. Availability of these additional models will vary by etailer.
Lastly, we’re opening sign-ups to be considered for a Verified Priority Access invitation. There may be many more sign-ups than cards available in this trial, so enrolling does not guarantee getting selected for an invitation. At this time, sign-ups are open for NVIDIA Accounts that were created on or before November 15th, 2022.
Signing up for the program requires, as mentioned above, an NVIDIA account created before the RTX 4080 launch. If you already used GeForce Experience prior to this launch, and you want one of these Founders Edition cards (without the markup), then sign up here.
Once you sign up, you’ll get a confirmation email like the one I got, pictured above. But don’t worry, I’m not going to use this to get one, so you won’t have to compete with me.
