It’s no longer news to anyone that the RTX 4090 is a true beast of graphics performance, such is its weight, size, power consumption, and of course, price. But do you know how far down the step is? That is, the RTX 4080? Well… A little far…
RTX 4080 is 20~30% slower than RTX 4090. Is it worth it?
Therefore, the first benchmarks referring to the RTX 4080 have already started to arrive on the Internet, with the graphics card starting at ~1600€ (probably more in Portugal), offering an interesting level of performance! By being ahead, with some margin, of the RTX 3090 Ti, but still being quite far (20~30%) from the performance of the current queen of the graphics market, the RTX 4090.
The tests were done in the 3DMark suite, and of course, in some popular games, such as Forza Horizon 5, CoD MW2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Cyberpunk 2077 and Borderlands 3.
That is, the RTX 4080, which now appears to be priced ‘ugly’. This after the announcement of AMD, which launched the new Radeon RX 7900 XTX and XT at $999 and $899, respectively, wants to stay in the space between the RTX 4090 and RTX 3090 Ti.
Do you think the price makes sense for the performance? Or will NVIDIA really have to change prices? Is this in order to rival AMD, and thus present a really interesting product in the grand scheme of things? Share your opinion with us in the comments box below.
