Phil Hayton >Published Aug 5, 2022 >Gaming hardwareNvidiaA potential Nvidia RTX4080 specs update has been posted. The upcoming GeForce graphic card will likely arrive with fewer CUDA Cores than originally anticipated. While the specs for the RTX 4000 GPU appear to be secure, the tweak suggests that the green team's plans for gaming PCs are still in flux.
Kopite7kimi has leaked the latest RTX 4080 - just like other RTX 4000 leaking leaks - and lists updated specs based upon insider information. The AD102 configuration isn't changed in any way, but it will now supposedly have 9,728 CUDA cores instead of 10,240.
It isn't the first RTX4080 downgrade. Earlier spec predictions pointed towards a staggering 14,080 CUDA Cores. The latest information suggests that the RTX 4080 will come with 16GB of GDDR6X VRAM and a 256-bit data bus. It also has a power draw of 420W.
Nvidia's RTX4000 ambitions are subject to change. We recommend waiting for an official announcement before relying on specific specifications. The RTX 4070 will also arrive with revised specifications. It'll have 12GB of GDDR6X RAM and can allegedly keep pace with the RTX 3090T.
Nvidia and AMD are releasing the next-generation graphics cards. Both lineups will be available in the coming months. The Lisa Su confirmed that high-end Radeon cards would be available "later in the year", but the rumour mill isn't sure if there will be a next-gen GeForce ETA.
Although the RTX 4090 is expected to arrive first, there are reasons to believe that it will be the last RTX 4000 GPU to arrive by 2022. This means that we may have to wait until next year for the RTX 4000, RTX 4070 and RTX 4800, but considering the current mix-up of speculation, it's better to wait for something official.
