We've run the numbers and Nvidia's RTX 4080 cards don't add up
 

 
$900 for a 192-bit graphics card? Seriously?

And so it begins. The next-gen graphics fest we've all been waiting for is here. And yet I'm already massively disappointed. Nvidia has pulled the wraps off its new RTX 40-series graphics, otherwise known as Ada Lovelace, and the numbers don't add up.

The top-end RTX 4090(opens in new tab) board and the AD102 GPU it contains look great from a technical perspective. But what Nvidia is doing with the two RTX 4080 boards(opens in new tab) is deeply, deeply disappointing, perhaps even cynical. Let's demonstrate that with numbers. Lots of numbers.

When Nvidia launched the existing Ampere generation and the RTX 30-series roughly two years ago, the RTX 3080(opens in new tab) series board was a slightly cut-down version of the RTX 3090 using the same GA102 chip and with around 80% of the functional units of its bigger sibling. In turn, the RTX 3070 used the next-tier GA104 GPU and delivered in the region of 55% of the hardware of the RTX 3090.

Rumor is that the 4080 12GB was originally the 4070.

Nvidia is tossing the chum in the water for the suckers who will pay for this because they don't know no better. And there will be alot who will pay

i mean it's kinda common sense at this point, if you have a 30 series you skip a series. No need to read into the numbers anyone presents to you, normal people use "the Eye test". Unless you hate money there is no reason to upgrade. paying 800/1600 respectfully for 20 FPS. Regardless which 30 series you own its hard to move now with mining via crypto is dead the market is flooded. I'm sitting on 7 3070's currently. i will say if you settled for a 3060-3070, it is a good time to get a 3090 at a heavy discount thats worth the jump.

the current price of the 40 cards doesnt matter . we will find out what the price increase to performance is and then we can talk. i dont care if the 4080 16 gb version is 200 dollars more then the 3080 if it turns out its 2-3 times faster. your paying for the rate of advancement at that point
