Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 16GB is set to launch on November 16, 2022. Nvidia has set an official price tag of $1199, and the PC gaming market will soon be able to test the latest release from the company.
While the GeForce RTX xx80 tier graphics card has seen a historical price jump of $500, European countries have it even worse. According to a recent Reddit post, the GeForce RTX 4080 could cost €1800 or more in Finland.
The image shows Asus GeForce RTX 4080 16Gb graphics cards. Variants like the Asus TUF RTX 4080 start from €1849, but higher tier variants like the Asus Rog Strix graphics cards can go up to nearly €2000.
It has also been pointed out that this is an €1100 increase over the launch price of the GeForce RTX 3080. Compared to the price in dollars, this is a two-times increase for the cost of the xx80 tier of GPU.
Furthermore, Nvidia has recently canceled the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB. The graphics card was criticized after the original announcement, and consumers believed it was not suitable for an xx80-tier graphics card. Nvidia recently announced that the graphics card had been “Unlaunched.”
It should also be noted that the screenshot could show placeholder prices. Another user has pointed out that the image does not mention placeholder prices, but it would be best to wait for further confirmation before concluding.
Furthermore, graphics card pricing has rapidly fallen for the last few months. But Nvidia appears to be determined to continue the trend of absurd pricing, despite reluctant buyers.
On the other hand, AMD is also gearing up for a brand new line-up of graphics cards. Consumers hope the company could shake things up, releasing GPUs at more reasonable prices than Nvidia.
The GeForce RTX 4080 16GB is set to launch in just a few weeks. Nvidia is doing well, but its current pricing model could push consumers away. While these graphics cards are already expensive in the US, parts of Europe have seen insane price increases, and Nvidia has not shown any signs of cutting prices anytime soon.
