With the launch of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 gathering everybody’s attention including scalpers and such, Team Green is dropping yet another bomb as they say goodbye to the RTX 4080 12GB.
As announced in the latest blog post, NVIDIA cites “Having 2 different RTX 4080 designation is confusing” as the sole reason for the canceling of the lower-end model that was supposed to be priced at USD899. Researching enough leak posts prior to the launch of the Ada Lovelace cards and the response of the community, one can easily reveal the comments and ideas behind the originally “RTX 4070” being branded as the RTX 4080 12GB is just another way of sucking money out of fellow gamers’ wallet without much effort.
Can we see it return as an actual RTX 4070? Well, let’s see what Jensen is going to do next year and what sort of explanation he can come out with.
