NVIDIA Is Preparing a Faster GeForce RTX 4080 Ti GPU; To Be Priced Same As RTX 4080

There are rumors suggesting that NVIDIA is planning to release a more powerful GPU called the GeForce RTX 4080 Ti in early 2024, with a price point similar to that of the RTX 4080. The source of this information is MEGAsizeGPU, which indicates that NVIDIA will introduce a new graphics card in the early months of 2024. This card could potentially be named either the GeForce RTX 4080S (SUPER) or RTX 4080 Ti. However, it is more likely to bear the “Ti” designation, aligning it with NVIDIA’s existing Ada Lovelace product offerings.

Irrespective of the naming convention chosen, the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Ti graphics card will utilize the AD102 GPU core, offering a slightly enhanced core configuration compared to the RTX 4080 Non-Ti/S. The expected TGP (Total Graphics Power) for this new variant is targeted at 450W, though it will likely operate in the 380-420W range in practical terms. Additionally, there may be a memory upgrade, featuring a 320-bit interface and 20 GB of VRAM, whereas the existing RTX 4080 comes with a 256-bit interface and 16 GB of VRAM. Given the notable performance and specification gap between the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090, this card aims to bridge that difference.

Regarding the pricing, reports indicate that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Ti graphics card will likely be priced similarly to the current RTX 4080. The RTX 4080 has an MSRP of $1199 US, but it is commonly available for around $1050-$1100 US at various retail outlets. This suggests the possibility of an official price reduction for the existing RTX 4080 graphics cards, possibly to $999 US or lower, while the RTX 4080 Ti occupies the $1199 US price segment. This adjustment in pricing would bring more coherence to the pricing structure of the higher-end Ada Lovelace cards.

It’s worth noting that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080, priced at $1199 US, faced criticism for its unfavorable price-to-performance ratio in the consumer market. While recent price reductions may boost sales to some extent, the card remains one of the least favored choices among the NVIDIA RTX 40 series lineup.

The RTX 4090 will continue to be the flagship model at $1599 US. However, the introduction of the 4080 Ti implies the possibility of a future RTX 4090 Ti model with a higher price tag. If NVIDIA intends to release the GeForce RTX 4080 Ti in early 2024, we might expect an official announcement around CES 2024, which is a few months away.
