NVIDIA 'unreleased' the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB

NVIDIA this week announced that it is cancelling the release of the 12GB GeForce RTX 4080. The video card was not ‘named correctly’ and that would be the reason, according to the company’s statement. Additionally, the 16GB RTX 4080, now the only RTX 4080, will be released on November 16th.

‘The RTX 4080 12GB is a fantastic graphics card, but it’s not named correctly. Having two GPUs with the RTX 4080 designation is confusing,’ NVIDIA said on its official website.

‘So we’re hitting the ‘unlaunch’ button on the RTX 4080 12GB. The RTX 4080 16GB is incredible and is on its way to delight gamers everywhere on November 16th. If the lines around the blocks and the enthusiasm for the 4090 are any indication, the reception for the 4080 will be awesome’, concludes NVIDIA with several photos of huge lines around the stores at the launch of the RTX 4090.

The announcement of the 12GB GeForce RTX 4080 was widely criticized everywhere. The criticism was unanimous: the video card should be called RTX 4070. It’s no wonder that NVIDIA itself says that the GPU was not named correctly.
