[PLUS] Nvidia Geforce RTX 4080 in the extended print test

Geforce RTX 4080

On November 16, Nvidia’s second graphics card of the “Ada Lovelace” generation went on sale – and made waves. Nvidia’s confident retail price of 1,469 euros is double the Geforce RTX 3080 launched two years ago and sparked a renewed, ongoing debate. In the big test of the Geforce RTX 4080 16GB, PCGH explains the pros and cons.

Three is less than two

The Geforce RTX 4080 16GB is based on the same technology as the Geforce RTX 4090 launched on October 12. With the Ada Lovelace microarchitecture, Nvidia is fully committed to old virtues that (graphics) processors have benefited for decades: A combination of significantly more refined Manufacturing, significantly higher clock rates and fine-tuning of the arithmetic units leads to impressive performance and efficiency. All three Ada graphics chips confirmed so far – AD102, AD103 and AD104 – are produced by the Taiwanese chip manufacturer TSMC in the 4N process, a variant of TSMC’s 5-nanometer production adapted to Nvidia’s wishes.
