The GeForce RTX 4080 with 16GB of memory (the 12GB variant has been cancelled) will go on sale on November 16th. Despite the fact that this date is more than two weeks away, North American online platforms have already begun to include the novelty in their catalogs.
So, on the Newegg website, two variants of the GeForce RTX 4080 are presented – PNY XLR8 Gaming VERTO GeForce RTX 4080 in normal and overclocked versions. The cost is for the first one only, and it is the recommended $1,200. The price of the OC version will be higher, but obviously not by much. Thus, at least in the US, it will be possible to buy the GeForce RTX 4080 for the official price. Another question is how quickly such proposals will disappear. The experience of the GeForce RTX 4090 showed that all versions at the recommended price were quickly sold out, after which prices soared on sites like eBay. It is possible that this situation will repeat itself with the GeForce RTX 4080.
