There has already been a lot of speculation on the GeForce RTX 4090 specs on the web, but now the source has cited the parameters of the more affordable and therefore potentially more popular GeForce RTX 4080 model. If the data about the price and parameters are confirmed, this model is doomed to become a hit.
The GeForce RTX 4080 is credited with an AD102 GPU with 14,000 CUDA cores — about 4,000 fewer than the GeForce RTX 4090. On a memory bus width of 384 bits, you can not count on, its bit depth will be 256 bits. But the amount of GDDR6X memory will be 16 GB. In total performance should be higher than the GeForce RTX 3080, by 60-80%. That is, GeForce RTX 4080 will obviously be faster than GeForce RTX 3090/3090 Ti.
Of course, the TDP will be higher. According to the source, the value will rise to 450W – that’s 100W more than the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB of memory. And finally, the price. The source is the least certain of these data, but at the moment the price of the GeForce RTX 4080 is projected at $ 700 – that is, it is assumed that the official cost of new items will be at the level of the GeForce RTX 3080. According to the latest data, the GeForce RTX 4090 will be $400 more expensive than the GeForce RTX 3090, and it is logical to assume that the GeForce RTX 4080 will be more expensive than the GeForce RTX 3080. However, whether, and if so, by how much – still an open question.
