The RTX 4080 SUPER, NVIDIA’s latest GPU, has been released, featuring slight improvements in specifications. However, it stands alone in the SUPER lineup as the only card to experience a notable price adjustment.
The RTX 4080 SUPER runs on the AD103-400 GPU, with 10240 CUDA cores—a modest 5% increase from the original RTX 4080. While memory capacity and technology remain unchanged at 16GB GDDR6X, the memory speed has been elevated to 23 Gbps, making it the fastest GDDR6X memory in any desktop GPU. However, it’s important to highlight that the card is constrained by a 256-bit memory bus, resulting in a bandwidth that falls behind the RTX 4090.
NVIDIA has chosen to retain the power specifications of the RTX 4080 SUPER at the default 320W. However, numerous models available in the market offer higher TDP right from the start, with some supporting 400W and beyond through overclocking.
Unlike the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER unveiled last week, the RTX 4080 SUPER will showcase a Founder’s Edition, a custom design by NVIDIA. This specific card is usually accessible through official NVIDIA stores or specific partners, and its availability may differ based on region.
