At yesterday's quarterly event, NVIDIA management admitted to being quite pleased with the market debut of the first two members of the Ada Lovelace gaming architecture in the form of GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards, but is soon going to introduce new models in the family.Now we found out that the next NVIDIA presentation will be held on January 3, at CES 2023.Source image: NVIDIAOn the eve of NVIDIA sent out the invitations to the press at a virtual event, which will be held during CES 2023 in Las Vegas, reports news resource PCMag.The presentation will be broadcasted on January 3 at 8 am local time.The only thing mentioned is NVIDIA's willingness to share information about \"cutting-edge innovations made possible by accelerated computing\".You can watch the broadcast directly on the official NVIDIA website.It is possible that the event in early January, among other things, will allow NVIDIA to bring back the relevance of GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card with 12 GB of memory, whose announcement was hastily canceled earlier.Most likely, this graphics solution will debut under another name, because earlier NVIDIA employees acknowledged the mistake of using the designation \"GeForce RTX 4080\" for two different graphics cards.It is assumed that the said graphics card with 12 GB of memory can go under the name GeForce RTX 4070 Ti with a price lower than the initially planned $ 899.The launch of AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX ($999) and Radeon RX 7900 XT ($899) next month forces NVIDIA to think about countermeasures, which would not undermine profitability of GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce RTX 4080.The appearance of a third video card in the family could well restore the balance of power.
NVIDIA will compensate manufacturing partners for the cost of packaging for the \"unannounced\" GeForce RTX 4080 12GB graphics cards
As reported by sources VideoCardz two partners working with NVIDIA, reported the company's intention to compensate them for the cancellation of RTX 4080 graphics cards with 12 GB of memory, at least - in terms of the cost of packaging for them.Source image: NVIDIAI'm talking about those partner companies that have already released boxes for the promised graphics cards, but never waited for deliveries.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.
