NVIDIA RTX 4080 Angers Graphics Card Enthusiasts Over New Controversy

The definitive announcement of the RTX 4000 has been, without a doubt, the most important event of the year for NVIDIA. The green team became the king of the mambo and concentrated on itself all the attention of the market of graphics cards to show the future of technology.

With its RTX 4090 and 4080 as flagships of the new Ada Lovelace generation, the company has real beasts on its hands, but not everything is rosy. The RTX 4080 has become a point of contention that has angered fans, and the reason for that has to do with its two versions.

Counting on 16 and 12 GB of VRAM, NVIDIA differentiates between two models of RTX 4080. Although it may seem that the only difference between them is the amount of memory, they are, in fact, two very different graphics, and the enthusiast community is not happy about this. And the differences are quite remarkable.

RTX 4080 12GB

RTX 4080 16GB

CUDA kernels

9728

256 bit

320W

As you can see, although the 12GB model has slightly higher frequencies, it has a much lower amount of CUDA cores. In addition to this, its bandwidth of only 192 bits makes it a much inferior graphics card. All this has shown that the model is not only a version with less VRAM, but a worse graphics card in general.

The enthusiast community has picked up on all of this and started their protest, as we can see on the PC Master Race subreddit. The forum has been filled with memes and complaints, among which users maintain that they are trying to sell an RTX 4070 at the price of 4080.

This remains to be verified, we lack performance tests compare both charts and offerings from previous generations. It is disappointing to think that the enormous prices of the RTX 4000 may not be justified, and that we have before us a generation that does not live up to expectations.
