As another big launch of an Nvidia graphics card, it is expected to be a popular choice. Although its stock of it and popularity may not be as good as the RTX 4090. As it’s the first of the 80 models to reach over $1k.

Is the RTX 4080 too expensive?

Now this generation has seen another increase in pricing. And the 4080 price, is rather significant and puts it into new territory for the lower-level card than the flagship.

Although the performance has improved, this shows some stagnation. As the 20 series saw, it may mean it’s best to skip the generation. As it has put the card out of reach for too many people.

However, the new AMD RDNA 3 cards are expected to bring some good competition to the market. And they are going to cost less than the Nvidia cards. So it may be a good alternative, especially as even the 7900 XTX flagship costs less than the 4080.

Therefore it may be worth waiting around for that before jumping the gun on a new GPU. Although sometimes an upgrade might be overdue and you may still be eager to get one.
