RTX 4080 Super or RTX 4080 Ti May Arrive In 2024 Within RTX 4080 Price Range

Nvidia (via MEGAsizeGPU) is reportedly making an RTX 4080 TI class card, with a rumored release date in early 2024 to rival the best graphics cards. The rumored RTX 40-series (Ada Lovelace) GPU may carry the RTX 4080S (Super) or RTX 4080 Ti model name, featuring the RTX 4090's AD102 GPU die and a power rating below 450W.

One of the most exciting aspects of MEGAsizeGPU's tweet was his claims that the RTX 4080S/Ti could have a value in the "...same price range as the RTX 4080". The wording suggests the RTX 4080S/Ti is not merely another SKU to fill in pricing gaps in Nvidia's Ada Lovelace lineup but to rectify Nvidia's horrible pricing at the high end potentially.

If the rumor is accurate, we can expect Nvidia's RTX 4080 Super/Ti to be priced right around, if not directly at the RTX 4080's $1,199 MSRP. To compensate, this would inevitably drop the RTX 4080's price by at least $100-200, if not more. We've already seen RTX 4080's price tag drop below quadruple-digit pricing.

This move would incentivize more customers to purchase Nvidia's RTX 4080 class graphics cards. When the RTX 4080 launched, the graphics card was heavily criticized for its incredibly high pricing. As a reminder, the RTX 4080 launched at nearly double the price of its predecessor, the RTX 3080, which hit the market for $699.

A price discount for the RTX 4080 would also enable the GPU to better compete with AMD's more competitive RX 7900 XTX flagship GPU. The 7900 XTX is the better card of the two for rasterized gaming, with performance that can slightly outperform the RTX 4080 at 1440P and 4K resolutions while costing $100-$150 less (compared to the RTX 4080's $1,199 MSRP). A price cut of a few hundred dollars would enable the RTX 4080 to compete far better with the RX 7900 XTX while offering superior power efficiency and ray tracing performance for gamers who use ray tracing.

Beyond pricing, there is room for an RTX 4080S/Ti class card in Nvidia's lineup. The difference in core count and SM count between the RTX 4090 and 4080 is a whopping 50%, so the RTX 4080S/Ti could be much faster than the RTX 4080 if specced properly. But, as always, take these rumors with a grain of salt since there's no guarantee that Nvidia will release an RTX 4080 Super or RTX 4080 Ti, although it would make sense.

    I hope this is true, and we get Super cards down the rest of the stack.
    If they make a 4070 Super to take over the $800 price point, using AD103 with a 256-bit bus and 16GB VRAM, and 68 SMs (halfway between the 4070 Ti and 4080), that would be my next graphics card.

    The article is absolutely wrong on the price difference between msrp of 4080 vs 7900xtx. It’s not $100-150….it’s $200 dollars. And even more with street pricing. I don’t understand how you can get that wrong unless it’s purposeful.

    Think that's more wishful thinking than anything. As long as nVidia and AMD are making money hand over fist in the enterprise market, and Intel sill flounders, there's nothing keeping consumer GPU prices from rising, because neither AMD nor nVidia has to sell a single one, so there's no reason to lower prices.

    The 4080 doesn't interest me unless its less than $750. And that was a year ago when it was announced. As it's a year into it's lifecycle it's losing more and more value to me. No thanks Nvidia.

    It's ironic that peak prices for GPUs matched the times where games are less appealing.

    Youtube is full of people complaining that games "aren't fun anymore", "what ruined games", "where games went wrong", and stuff like that.

    Keep holding your breath, Nvidia wants to see how many of you faint before they have to release the cards.

    Shall I buy AMD or NVIDIA?

    My watercooled NVidia GT-210 gets me native 8K 360FPS on cyberpunk, and thats with ray tracing enabled. So I have no need to upgrade yet

    7900XT can be found around $700 with the same performance as 4080, only fuuuls buy into ray gimmick and fake generation. You want to spend money on Nvidia get the 4090, being the fastest you can justify paying more than double for it

    One day technology may advance to the point where dlss is undistinguished from native, where path tracing really brings that sense of realism and frame generation brings a real feel of boost to the table, and when that day comes it will be probably Nvidia giving it, THENets pay some high dollars for the tech. Right now though? Nvidia truly is asking way more for their GPUs than it's worth

    Have you ever seen raytracing, DLSS quality, and frame generation? Everything you just stated is already here as you state them. Only people with a really good eye have to double take a single paused frame with a comparison frame with the tech off to tell which one is which. The only one that is obvious to spot in a still frame is frame generation, not so much in moving content.
