Nvidia eliminates a model of its RTX 4080 a month after its launch

Nvidia has made a very curious move with the RTX 4090 on the market and with its RTX 4080 on the starting line for a launch scheduled for November, and has eliminated a model of its graphics cards. Yes, just as you read it and will hear it for days. The RTX 4080 12GB model It was going to be launched together with its older sister, 16 GB, but the Californian company has decided prohibit its sale.

Perhaps as much as prohibiting, no, but the verb you choose would not be far away either. Remember that this first batch of 2022 would come with 3 graphics card models: RTX 4090, RTX 4080 16 GB, and finally the RTX 4080 12 GB model. The latter already raised a cloud of dust the day of its announcement as a cropped version Y Halfway from an entry-level and mid-range of the Ada Lovelace generation.

Be that as it may, the official statement from Nvidia leaves no room for debate. As we read on the website of Jen-Hsun Huang’s company, the 16 GB model “doesn’t have the right name”; while her older sister, within the same range, remains as a release scheduled for November.

Now, what will happen to this model of RTX 4080? We are not talking about a blur on the desEsports Extrassheet, but about a restructuring with the models already manufactured and ready for their first batch of sale next month. Nvidia cites that “having two GPUs with the 4080 designation is confusing”, so this model will look for a new nameperhaps, as one of Ada Lovelace’s even younger sisters.

It should be noted that we are facing a mix of specifications. We are talking about a GPU with a 192-bit memory interface, well below the 384-bit of the RTX 4090 and 7680 CUDA cores. A graphics card on horseback that is close to a possible model Basic RTX 4060but it will maintain, in case no modifications are made via software, certain specifications close to the 4080 model. We will see how Nvidia acts in the coming weeks.
