NVIDIA’s RTX 4080 16GB will hit the shelves on the 16th of November. While that date is more than 2 weeks away from us, some retailers in the UK have the RTX 4080 available for purchase. The listed price starts from £1450 (~$1700), which is a massive 45% more expensive than NVIDIA’s $1199 MSRP.
4080 Already Available
Over laptopsdirect, the RTX 4080 is listed for purchase with deliveries starting 3 weeks from today. The GPUs in question are Palit’s RTX 4080 GameRock OC/non-OC and OmniBlack. Similarly, you can also purchase these GPUs on installments starting from £47 ($55) a month.
Without any doubt, the pricing is extremely high even for a custom variant. The RTX 4090 is currently suffering the same fate being priced at £1929 ($2240). Remember that this is the lowest price we could currently find at laptopsdirect. Despite the GPU mining apocalypse having ended, we are still seeing record high prices. If AMD’s upcoming RDNA3 matches the 4080 or even the 4090 in performance while costing less, NVIDIA may be forced to drop prices. Even though NVIDIA is not directly at fault here, a slightly lower cost does benefit us all.
RTX 4080 16GB
The RTX 4080 16GB is packed with 16GB of GDDR6X memory over a 256-bit bus where the effective bandwidth stands at a whopping 720GB/s. Such insane bandwidths can be achieved thanks to the 22.5Gb/s memory which is 20% faster than last-gen. The 4080 16GB is equipped with the state of the art AD103 GPU and 9,728 CUDA Cores for that extra compute performance. To top it off, it consumes just 320W of power.
