“Fantastic graphics card, but misnamed.” Nvidia cancels GeForce RTX 4080 with 12GB of memory

Nvidia today officially announced that the third graphics card of the GeForce RTX 40 line – the GeForce RTX 4080 with 12 GB of memory – will not be available. She’s cancelled.

The official statement says that the GeForce RTX 4080 is “fantastic graphics card but misnamed”, and the presence of two GeForce RTX 4080 in the series is confusing. Therefore, the companypresses the cancel button“. At the same time, Nvidia confirms that the GeForce RTX 4080 with 16 GB of memory will be released as planned on November 16th. And the company expects the same warm reception as in the case of the older GeForce RTX 4090.

Apparently, the GeForce RTX 4080 with 12 GB of memory will still be released, but under a different name: for example, like the GeForce RTX 4070 or RTX 4070 Ti. Which is logical: rumors initially attributed this designation to this model, but Nvidia marketers decided otherwise. And now the company has not come up with anything better than just canceling the video card.

In the meantime, the GeForce RTX 4080 with 16 GB of memory is preparing to hit the store shelves, the GeForce RTX 4090 is turning into an increasingly scarce commodity: in the USA it is resold for 2-6 times the recommended price (and people buy!), and in China there are huge queues for the Founders Edition.
