The launch of the Turing graphics card is being paused. The 12GB RTX 4080 was originally unveiled alongside a much more powerful 16GB model, but now it's been admitted that it messed up with the name. The RTX 4080 is a great graphics card, but it isn't named right. The 4080 designation is difficult to understand.
The 12GB version of the RTX 4080 won't be available until November 16th, but the 16GB version will be available that same day.
When the 16gigabyte model was different, the 12gigabyte model was labeled as an RTX 4080. The base clock of the RTX 4080 was supposed to be 2.31 GHz, but it was increased to 2.61 GHz. The base clock of the 16GB RTX 4080 is 2.21 GHz, which is more powerful than the base clock of the previous generation of the Turing architecture.
It means that anyone hoping for a cheaper card will have to wait longer. Next month, the 16GB version of the RTX 4080 will be available for $1,199, and a different version of the 4080 is planned for later in the year.
