It is reported that the boxes will be collected and destroyed, as finished products are likely to come out under another name.According to sources, the manufacturer intends to simply forget about the intention to release the corresponding version of the GeForce RTX 4080 - the usual sticker with corrected data, pasted over the finished boxes already released sample, apparently, will not be enough.
It is not known yet whether the company will compensate other costs, including, for example, work on packaging.
As you know, NVIDIA unexpectedly \"de-announced\" the promised GeForce RTX 4080 12GB, it is not excluded that the card will still be released in a series of GeForce RTX 4070 Ti or 4070.
In this case, the cost of packaging and preparation for shipment is very significant, in addition, the models will have to be removed from the former packaging, re-stickers with serial numbers and codes, and possibly even re-flash them, although the latter may be possible to avoid - just change the name in the driver, and PCI Device ID can remain the same.Canceling GeForce RTX 4080 12GB - not the first time that NVIDIA changed its plans at the last moment.
For example, instead of GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 20 GB of memory later it was decided to release a version with 12 GB.
Nevertheless, some GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 20GB cards appeared later on Russian market, which indirectly confirms the fact that the cards had time to go into limited edition.
However, in the case of GeForce RTX 4080 12GB technical problems may be much less, because there are no serious changes planned for the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB variant conversion with another name, if they are made at all.
