Nvidia cancels the launch of 12GB RTX 4080 graphics card named and price has caused controversy

Nvidia previously announced that the RTX 4080 graphics card launched in mid-November has attracted a lot of attention, but the same product has two versions, 16GB and 12GB. The difference in performance is actually quite a lot. After causing controversy, Nvidia finally decided to cancel the 12GB version. .

When Nvidia first announced the RTX 4080 graphics card, there were two versions. Although the naming seems to be only different in memory capacity, in fact, the RTX 4080 12GB has 7680 CUDA cores, and the 16GB version has 9,728. The 12GB version is 2.31GHz-2.61GHz, and the 16GB version is 2.21GHz-2.51GHz. As a result, the two versions have great differences in the performance of Tensor-TFLOPs, RT-TFLOPs and Shader-TFLOPs. The difference in game performance can reach 30%, but the price is not far behind, so it has been widely criticized.

Nvidia recently mentioned that they also realized that the naming of the 12GB RTX 4080 was confusing, so they decided to cancel the launch of this version, and only the 16GB version will be available. As for whether the 12GB version will be renamed and relaunched later, it has not yet been announced.
