What about Nvidia's cheaper RTX 4080 12GB?
Nvidia originally planned to launch 12GB and 16GB variants of their RTX 4080 graphics card, with their 12GB model launching with a baseline price of $899 while the 16GB model had a baseline price of $1199. After releasing benchmarks for both graphics cards, it became clear to consumers that Nvidia's RTX 4080 12GB graphics card was significantly weaker than Nvidia's RTX 4080 16GB GPU, so much so that the 12 GB models' RTX 4080 branding was seen as misleading by many consumers.
With Nvidia's own benchmarks showcasing benchmarks that were 25% behind their RTX 4080 16GB, Nvidia's RTX 4080 12GB became a product that was increasingly difficult for the company to justify. As such, the company decided to "unlaunch" their RT 4080 12GB graphics card. Rumour has it that Nvidia's RTX 4080 12GB will return with RTX 4070 Ti branding and a lower price tag.
