The Nvidia RTX 4080 release date is so near we can taste it, and there's reason to believe the GPU will come in two VRAM flavors. Currently, reports suggest the RTX 4000 lineup will include 12 and 16GB versions of the mid-range graphics card, but they're not expected to arrive at the same time.
Zed_Wang, a Twitter leaker, claims that both versions of the Nvidia RTX 4080 GPU will be released and launched at the same time. The benchmark compares the GeForce RTX 1060, an entry-level graphics card with 3 and 6GB RAM.
According to well-known graphics card insider Kopite7kimi, Nvidia originally intended to create an AD103 version of the RTX 4090, but the GPU is apparently now classified as an RTX 4080.
Nvidia seems to be unable to make up its mind about the RTX 4070 specs, but adding more memory will help players join the 4K gaming monitor bandwagon.
If you've been following the RTX 4000 rumors, you'll most likely have that recommended grain of salt on hand. Nvidia has yet to announce its release date or specification schedule, and the company seems to be more concerned about shifting existing RTX 3000 stocks.
While various insider rumors suggest that the RTX 4080 and its siblings will not be available until this Halloween, other reports suggest that board partners may be able to switch supplies of custom cards, like the MSI RTX 3090 Suprim X. However, if you're eagerly waiting to develop the finest gaming PC on the market, you might have to wait a little longer.
