As we march into the launch of NVIDIA’s next-gen GeForce RTX 40 sequence “Ada Lovelace” GPUs, we’re listening to extra in regards to the Ada launch lineup: GeForce RTX 4090, GeForce RTX 4080 16GB, and GeForce RTX 4080 12GB in response to the newest leaks.
NVIDIA shall be launching the GeForce RTX 4090 in all its next-gen GPU glory in October, however in November we’ll be greeted by not one, however two new GeForce RTX 4080 graphics playing cards. The primary is the higher-end GeForce RTX 4080 with 16GB of GDDR6X reminiscence, clocked at the next 23Gbps bandwidth for as much as 768GB/sec of reminiscence bandwidth.

Inside, the GeForce RTX 4080 16GB will use the brand new AD103-300 GPU with 9728 CUDA cores, with a GPU increase of as much as 2505MHz (almost the identical because the RTX 4090, with a lift clock of as much as 2520MHz). NVIDIA’s new GeForce RTX 4080 has a default TGP of 340Wwhereas it may be modified as much as its most energy restrict of 516W. Keep in mind, the 340W + 516W energy numbers are for the RTX 4080 16GB graphics card mannequin.
The second GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card will characteristic a cut-down AD104-400 GPU with 7680 CUDA cores, and would usually be what NVIDIA would name the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti or RTX 4070. As an alternative, NVIDIA has made a “last-minute identify change” for this mannequin says VideoCardz. As an alternative of the RTX 4070 Ti or RTX 4070, as a replacement, we’ve got the RTX 4080 12GB.
RTX 4090, RTX 4080 16GB, RTX 4080 12GB TGP (default, most)
- RTX 4090 24GB (default 450W, as much as 660W)
- RTX 4080 16GB (default 340W, as much as 516W)
- RTX 4080 12GB (default 285W, as much as 366W)
RTX 4090, RTX 4080 16GB, RTX 4080 12GB reminiscence + bandwidth
- RTX 4090 24GB GDDR6X @ 21Gbps (as much as 1008GB/sec reminiscence bandwidth)
- RTX 4080 16GB GDDR6X @ 23Gbps (as much as 736 GB/sec reminiscence bandwidth)
- RTX 4080 12GB GDDR6X @ 21Gbps (as much as 504 GB/sec reminiscence bandwidth)
NVIDIA’s second GeForce RTX 4080 will drop down from 16GB of GDDR6X reminiscence to 12GB of GDDR6X reminiscence, in addition to down from 23Gbps bandwidth all the way down to 21Gbps bandwidth. The facility consumption on the RTX 4080 12GB can also be a lot decrease, with a default TGP of 285W and a most of 366W TGP.
Meaning the RTX 4080 16GB and RTX 4080 12GB have a reasonably vital distinction in energy numbers, with the RTX 4080 16GB’s default TGP being 340W, it is 55W increased than the 285W from the RTX 4080 12GB. As for the utmost TGP, the RTX 4080 16GB has 516W which is a whopping 150W increased than the RTX 4080 12GB.
A few weeks in the past we heard in regards to the higher-end GeForce RTX 4080 with 16GB of GDDR6X reminiscence that includes a higher-end 12-layer PCB, in comparison with the 10-layer PCB on the common RTX 4080 12GB graphics card. For reference, the RTX 4090 has a 14-layer PCB in response to the very newest leaks.
We must always count on a hefty efficiency improve with the RTX 4080 16GB, which ought to kinda change into the brand new GeForce RTX 3090 Ti competitor however in Ada Lovelace type… leaving the RTX 3090 Ti destroyer to the RTX 4090. Nonetheless, the RTX 4080 16GB goes to be a power to be reckoned with, particularly within the lovely NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Version type and in customized AIB type the place I am positive we will see thermal methods prepared for 516W+ and max energy limits reached with pleasure.
We initially heard about NVIDIA’s new GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070 launching in September, however these plans have modified in a couple of methods: first, there is not any RTX 4070 launching now (RTX 4080 12GB is the “new” RTX 4070 or no matter x070- class launch NVIDIA had deliberate) and so they additionally missed their launch window, delayed into November.
