Even More NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Custom Graphics Cards Listed At Microcenter With Prices Between US$1199-$1549

Microcenter has also listed several NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 custom graphics cards with prices starting at US$1200 and going up to US$1550.

Thirteen custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 GPUs appear on MicroCenter’s website, but consumers may have to buy in person

Pricing for custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 models appears between $1199.99 and $1549.99, but none are available online. A total of thirteen different GPUs are listed from manufacturers such as ASUS, ZOTAC, MSI, GIGABYTE, and PNY. The new cards listed by the retailer include the following:

  • ASUS TUF: $1,199.99
  • ASUS TUF OC: $1,499.99
  • ASUS ROG STRIX OC: $1,549.99
  • GIGABYTE EAGLE: $1,199.99
  • GIGABYTE EAGLE OC: $1,239.99
  • GIGABYTE GAMING OC: $1,269.99
  • GIGABYTE AORUS MASTER: $1,349.99
  • MSI VENTUS 3X OC: $1,279.99
  • MSI GAMING X TRIO: $1,324.99
  • MSI SUPRIM X: $1,399.99
  • PNY XLR8 GREEN: $1,199.99
  • ZOTAC TRINITY: $1,199.99
  • ZOTAC AIRO AMPLIFIER: $1,399.99

Gigabyte, ASUS, and PNY share the spot for the lowest priced bid of the new RTX 4080 series graphics cards, while ASUS holds the sole spot for the highest priced bid with its ROG Strix OC model.

The only noticeable fact from all users viewing the listings is the “NOT AVAILABLE ONLINE” notification for the thirteen new graphics cards. Sometimes retailers do this as a placeholder for the latest products before release, but aren’t used as often with the words “CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE” in their place.

“Official” specifications of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16 GB

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB graphics card will use a reduced AD103-300 GPU configuration with 9,728 cores or 76 SMs enabled out of a total of 84 units, while the previous configuration offered 80 SMs or 10,240 cores. While the full GPU comes with 64MB L2 cache and up to 224 ROPs, the RTX 4080 would end up with 48MB L2 cache and lower ROPs also due to its scaled-down design. The board should be based on the PG136/139-SKU360 PCB. The graphics card is said to offer a maximum clock frequency of 2505 MHz.

As far as memory specs go, the GeForce RTX 4080 has 16GB GDDR6X capabilities that will scale to 22.5Gbps speeds on a 256-bit bus interface. This will provide up to 720 GB/s of bandwidth. This is still a bit slower than the 760 GB/s bandwidth offered by the RTX 3080 since it comes with a 320-bit interface but a low 10 GB capacity. To compensate for the lower bandwidth, NVIDIA could integrate a next-generation memory compression suite to compensate for the 256-bit interface.

Is it possible that MicroCenter is forcing consumers wanting to buy the latest custom GeForce RTX 4080 GPUs from their favorite manufacturer to come to stores, especially as we are at the start of the holiday season and many retailers are currently offering sales? ? Or is it only listed as a placeholder for the official map launch on November 16th?

MicroCenter may also attempt to sell the above graphics cards in special bundles closer to the day after Thanksgiving, also known as “Black Friday”, with “Cyber ​​Monday” appearing the following week. We’ve seen board makers agree that retailers create bundles for sale, so the concept isn’t abnormal.
