The GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards are clearly in much less demand than the RTX 4090. Nvidia’s new 3D card has reportedly become the second 3D card in the past two years that has never run out of stock in Canadian stores since the launch of the novelty. The first such card was the Radeon RX 6500 XT.
At the same time, the reasons for the weak demand for these two adapters are completely different. In the case of the AMD card, it was about low performance and a 64-bit bus, and even a very low price did not save the product, and the RTX 4080 is simply too expensive for its performance.
It also seems overpriced because Radeon RX 6000 adapters are incredibly affordable right now. In particular, it is now cheaper to fully build a gaming PC based on the RX 6900 XT than to buy one RTX 4080 alone. Bitwitkyle created a PC based on Ryzen 5 5600X, RX 6900 XT with 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB SSD for $1198. Recall that the RTX 4080 only starts at $1200, and some non-reference cards cost $1500-1600.
In the US, you can now buy the RX 6900 XT for $650 without taxes, in Europe they ask for a card from 750 euros already with taxes. At the same time, in Europe, you will have to pay at least 1,500 euros for the RTX 4080.
Yes, Nvidia’s new card is on average 30% faster than the stipulated AMD card, but the difference in price is twofold.
Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX vs. GeForce RTX 4080. AMD Unboxing Photos Revealed
The Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards will be released on December 13, and reviews will be published on the same day. But thematic resources were allowed to share the unpacking today.
Despite the fact that the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT are as similar as possible on the outside, they are still not identical. The older model has a length of 287 mm and weighs 1.8 kg, while the younger one, with a mass of 1.5 kg, is characterized by a length of 267 mm. By the standards of modern Nvidia flagships, these are very compact solutions. In addition, they occupy only 2.5 expansion slots instead of three or four for the new GeForce RTX 40 products. Actually, the general photo clearly shows how much smaller AMD new products are.
Of the less significant, we can note two power connectors (8 + 8), an air temperature sensor immediately behind the fan, as well as the same three red stripes on the radiator. It turns out that they symbolize the third generation of cards based on the RDNA architecture.
Recall that we have some comparisons of new products from AMD and Nvidia, but so far, unfortunately, not in games.
The $900 Radeon RX 7900 XT outperforms the $1,200 GeForce RTX 4080. But only in one test.
Following the older sister, the Radeon RX 7900 XT also appeared in the Geekbench database, which will be sold at a price of $ 900.
Now we have the results of both new AMD products in the same tests. And if cards from different manufacturers in such benchmarks can only be compared conditionally, then a comparison of cards from the same line is more revealing.
So, the RX 7900 XT scores about 205,600 points in OpenCL, and the result in Vulkan is about 162,200 points.
In the first case, this is exactly the level of the GeForce RTX 3090, in the second, the new AMD is confidently ahead of the more expensive RTX 4080 by $ 300.
If we talk about comparing the RX 7900 XT and XTX, the second one is about 10% faster. Actually, the price difference between them is almost the same, so the cards should be very close in terms of their profitability.
Recall that the price of the RX 7900 XT, according to available data, will compete with the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. New AMD cards will be released on December 13th.
Not able to fully bypass the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, the RTX 4070 Ti graphics card will cost $ 900
It looks like the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card that came out of the rebranded RTX 4080 12GB will cost $900.
It is reported that this price has already been named to Nvidia partners. If the new product really costs $ 900, the RTX 4080 will not be able to get much cheaper. Recall, there are rumors that Nvidia will reduce the price of this adapter, but the card costs $1,200. Considering $900 for the RTX 4070 Ti, perhaps the RTX 4080 will drop in price by just $100. However, this is still just a rumour.
It’s also worth pointing out that if you’re looking solely at performance in TFLOPS, as it’s already known for the new card, the RTX 4070 Ti will outperform its older sister, offering 0.04459 TFLOPS per dollar versus 0.04065 TFLOPS per dollar for the RTX 4080. In comparison, the RTX 4090 scores as high as 0.05165.
In terms of actual performance, according to Nvidia’s own slides, the new product will perform on par with the RTX 3090 Ti or slightly weaker, but will outperform the latter when DLSS is activated.
As a reminder, new AMD graphics cards are also entering the market on December 13, and the RTX 4070 Ti will be a direct competitor for the Radeon RX 7900 XT.
