Within a day or less, NVIDIA’s partners began to “launch” GeForce RTX 4080 12GB graphics cards. Multiple partners’ announcements will remain barren until they are completely removed.
In short, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 12GB couldn’t compete in performance with the 16GB variant. for groups and individuals who envisioned the future of the GPU in line with the rest of the series. This uproar caused NVIDIA to rethink the card’s place in its new Ada Lovelace line and officially released a statement that they would be removing the GPU from release, even after it hit board partners, and decide to rename it in the future. .
Price is also an issue, as the cost of the new 80 segments is very high, with the RTX 4080 being 33% higher than the 3080 12GB and 71% higher than the 3080 10GB.
Now the general public is looking at companies forced to adapt to change and pull GPU listings from their designs and websites., Companies such as PNY, which created the GeForce RTCX 4080 XLR8 VERTO graphics card EPIC-X RGB Triple Fan, now absent from their website, or MSI, which recently showed off its RTX 4080 12GB GPU series on their official store, but at this time of writing has also been removed from their site.
We know that almost all custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 12GB models had no name on the shroud itself and the only marketing that separated the two variants was the box (packaging) and the BIOS itself. It’s not necessarily a big deal for most AICs to change and NVIDIA will compensate for it in time, effort and cost while getting them ready for the next launch.
Other companies had less to worry about because no cards were published on their websites, like ASUS, Palit, Gigabyte and others. NVIDIA still plans to launch the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB next month, but it’s unclear what the company plans to do with the now-defunct model.
