Retailers around the world have started listing custom Ada graphics card models from chip maker AIB partners as Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards hit the retail market on November 16th. Although not as fast as the GeForce RTX 4090, the GeForce RTX 4080 is still one of his best graphics cards.
Initially available in both 16GB and 12GB variants, after much criticism and user backlash, Nvidia decided to ‘discontinue’ the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB. Nvidia must have been under a lot of pressure to cancel the graphics card launch. However, there is no need to grieve the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB as the vendor will likely recycle it into his GeForce RTX 4070 tier SKU. Nvidia’s benchmarks showed the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB to be up to 30% slower than his 16GB variant, so sales will be tough. Additionally, rumor has it that Nvidia has reimbursed its partners for packaging and rebranding costs.
The GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition will retail for $1,199 in the US and £1,269 in the UK. For example, Newegg lists his PNY XLR8 Gaming Verto GeForce RTX 4080. $1,199.99 (opens in new tab)the price of the overclocked version (PNY XLR8 Gaming Verto OC GeForce RTX 4080) remains the same do not know (opens in new tab)The standard version comes with a 2,505 MHz boost clock, the same speed as the Founders Edition.

Cyberpunk 2077 (New RT Overdrive). As always, pay some attention to benchmarks provided by vendors.
Despite the eye-popping price, the GeForce RTX 4090 sold out almost instantly when Ada’s flagship debuted on October 12th. His GeForce RTX 4080 with a slightly higher price is expected to follow suit. Although the Ethereum boom is over, consumers still have to fend off scalpers.
