Nvidia may bring RTX 4080 Ti in early 2024

Last year, NVIDIA unveiled its next-generation GeForce RTX 4080, built upon the Ada Lovelace architecture. This graphic powerhouse, equipped with the AD103-300 GPU, boasts 76 Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs), translating to 9,728 CUDA cores. Operating at a foundational frequency of 2.21GHz and an accelerated 2.51GHz, it’s complemented with 16GB of GDDR6X memory, a 256-bit memory bandwidth, and a memory speed clocking at 23Gbps.

Recent whispers among the online community suggest NVIDIA is orchestrating the release of a subsequent graphics card, potentially christened the RTX 4080 Ti or RTX 4080 SUPER, with anticipations leaning towards an early 2024 debut. Setting it apart from its RTX 4080 predecessor, this new entrant will transition its chip from AD103 to AD102. Moreover, the card’s overall power consumption is projected to remain under 450W, with its price point mirroring the current RTX 4080.

Drawing from the intel at hand, the imminent card’s total power draw might surpass the RTX 4080’s 320W, and the CUDA core count could potentially eclipse 9,728. Speculation is rife that NVIDIA may grace this new iteration with an augmented memory capacity, perhaps 20GB, implying a corresponding memory bandwidth of 320 bits. Given that certain non-Ti variants haven’t fully harnessed the potential of the Ada Lovelace architecture chips, rumors pertaining to the RTX 4080 Ti or RTX 4090 Ti have been aplenty in recent times.

The extant RTX 4080 bears an official Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $1,199. Should the RTX 4080 Ti/RTX 4080 SUPER command a similar valuation, it could presage a price reduction for the original RTX 4080 in due course. It’s noteworthy that NVIDIA’s rival, AMD, seemingly implemented a price cut on its RDNA 3 architecture-based Radeon RX 7900 XT/XTX. Thus, should NVIDIA reciprocate, it would hardly be a turn of events to raise eyebrows.
