NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 might be downgraded to 9728 CUDA cores

We’ve heard updates on the RTX 4090 and RTX 4070, and now it’s finally the RTX 4080 that’s about to get new updates. The RTX 40 series has changed quite a few specs over the past few months with the most recent update coming in June. Famed NVIDIA leakster Kopite shared updates on the specs of the RTX 4090 and RTX 4070, but we hadn’t heard anything about the RTX 4080 yet.

There’s no surprise when it comes to the 4080’s specs, as there aren’t many major changes. The number of CUDA cores now stands at 9728. This means that the Streaming Multiprocessors have been downgraded from 80 to 76. Other specifications, including performance, TDP and memory, remain the same.

By default, the RTX 4080 requires a 420W power supply and is expected to ship with 16GB of GDDR6X memory spread over a 256-bit interface. Taking these latest specifications into account, we can conclude that all high-end RTX 40 models come with 21 Gbps modules.

We haven’t heard from Kopite about the 3DMark TimeSpy Extreme score. With fewer cores now, clock speeds would certainly have increased. However, we don’t have the original nor the current frequency to say more about this.

NVIDIA is expected to announce the RTX 4090 in early October and at the same time, the RTX 4080 will be announced.
