NVIDIA has once again raised the bar in the gaming world with the release of its GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER GPU. This new graphics card, now available for purchase, offers enhanced performance and features at a competitive price point, starting at $999 US.
A New Era of Gaming Performance
The GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER GPU is the latest addition to NVIDIA’s RTX 40 Desktop GPU Family. It is available in both Founders Edition and Non-FE models, with a variety of custom models to choose from.
The RTX 4080 SUPER GPU is a significant upgrade from its predecessor, offering 5% more cores and the world’s fastest GDDR6X memory running at 23.00 Gbps. This makes it an ideal choice for 4K enthusiast gamers, providing them with the power and speed necessary for high-fidelity gaming.
Superior Features at a Lower Price
What sets the RTX 4080 SUPER GPU apart is not just its enhanced performance, but also its price. Despite its superior features, the card is priced $200 US lower than its predecessor, making it a more affordable option for gamers.
The RTX 4080 SUPER GPU is equipped with the latest technologies such as RTX ray tracing, DLSS 3.5, and an AI-rich software and hardware suite, all designed to deliver a seamless and immersive gaming experience.
Power Efficiency: A Game Changer
The RTX 4080 SUPER GPU also stands out for its power efficiency. While the GPU is rated at 320W, the actual gaming wattage is around 246W on average, which is almost half the TGP of the RTX 4090 and much lower than what the Radeon RX 7900 series consumes. This makes the RTX 4080 SUPER GPU a more energy-efficient choice for gamers.
What is a GPU?
A GPU, or Graphics Processing Unit, is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display device.
What is RTX ray tracing?
RTX ray tracing is a rendering technique that generates an image by tracing the path of light as pixels in an image plane and simulating the effects of its encounters with virtual objects.
What is DLSS 3.5?
DLSS, or Deep Learning Super Sampling, is a technology developed by NVIDIA that uses AI and machine learning to produce an image that looks like a higher-resolution image, without the rendering overhead. DLSS 3.5 is the latest version of this technology.
What is GDDR6X memory?
GDDR6X is a type of graphics card memory that offers higher speeds and improved power efficiency compared to its predecessor, GDDR6. It is currently the fastest graphics memory in the world.
What is TGP?
TGP, or Total Graphics Power, refers to the maximum amount of power that a graphics card can consume. It is an important factor to consider when evaluating the power efficiency of a GPU.
