Newegg’s new website only sells GPUs
Demand for GPUs seems to have cooled, but Newegg is doubling down on PC graphics card sales by launching a new site devoted entirely to selling the products.
The retailer today launched JustGPU.com(Opens in a new window)which is designed to make selecting the right desktop graphics card easier for novice PC builders.
“Customers spend a lot of time researching GPUs on the internet, including performance details and pricing,” said(Opens in a new window) Jim Tseng, director of product management at Newegg. “We’re reducing customer hassle and frustration by providing a streamlined resource with this new personalized shopping site.”
The site, which is currently in beta, first notifies visitors of the latest GPU deals at Newegg. Users can then view a list of top-selling graphics cards, including how each product performed on popular games, such as Call of Duty: Warzone, Cyberpunk 2077, and Halo Infinite.
As you can see, the site shows the frames per second for the game, depending on the resolution and the chipset the GPU is running. Another notable section of the site is called “Choose Your Fighter”, which lets you pit one GPU against another and compare the specs and performance of multiple games in an easy-to-view format.
However, JustGPU.com has a notable hole: it doesn’t catalog older products such as Nvidia’s RTX 2000 series, which is still on sale at Newegg. Instead, it only promotes the latest generation graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD.
JustGPU.com doesn’t have much Newegg branding on it either. But if you click on a product, you’ll be taken to the retailer’s standard Newegg site, where you can complete the purchase. The company says JustGPU.com is meant to “supplement” its main site, so don’t expect the graphics card inventory on Newegg.com to go away.

Newegg is launching the site a month after the retailer introduced its Gaming PC Finder tool, which can also help you find the right graphics card for the PC titles you want to play. So it looks like the company is experimenting with new ways to streamline the GPU buying process for inexperienced PC builders.
Still, we recommend checking out our reviews for more information on which cards to buy (and which to avoid). Many products on JustGPU.com have 4.5 or 5 stars, based on user reviews left on Newegg.com.
