Nvidia Ships New RTX 4080 Silicon, Probably Still Too Expensive

Despite its price, the GeForce RTX 4080 is one of the best graphics cards for modern gaming.However, the Hong Kong press HKEPC (opens in new tab) Nvidia claims to have a new AD103 die ready for its GeForce RTX 4080, which could improve the bill of materials (BOM) for its Ada Lovelace graphics cards. There is now evidence to suggest that this is accurate.

The GeForce RTX 4080 is currently shipping with AD103-300 silicon. However, HKEPC sources claim that the graphics card will soon switch to the AD103-301. now, Galax (opens in new tab) started listing branded GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards with “AD103-300/301”, lending credence to HKEPC’s claims.

However, moving from AD103-300 to AD103-301 may not benefit consumers. Despite the silicon difference, his AD103-301 based GeForce RTX 4080 GPU should feature a similar level of performance to his regular AD103-300 variant. Nvidia’s partners are probably the ones getting the best deals from new silicon.
