NEW YORK, BRONX (ORDO News) — NVIDIA has made a significant move in the graphics card market by halting production of the RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4080 video cards, signaling the imminent release of new models in early January.
For enthusiasts and gamers eyeing these specific models, the clock is ticking, as the existing supplies are expected to dwindle rapidly in the weeks to come.
The upcoming lineup includes the RTX 4080 SUPER, RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, and RTX 4070 SUPER. The RTX 4080 SUPER is anticipated to bring a modest upgrade by incorporating a full AD103 GPU into the card. On the other hand, the 4070 Ti SUPER will outshine its predecessor by offering enhanced memory compared to the existing Ti variant.
Manufacturers collaborating with NVIDIA to produce these cards have revealed that current supplies are on the brink of depletion. Inventory levels across various Add-in-Card (AIC) manufacturers are reported to be at critically low levels, and it is anticipated that graphics card stocks will be entirely exhausted by November.
The Q4 shipments from NVIDIA have been relatively light, and the remaining inventory is projected to be swiftly absorbed, potentially as early as November or extending into December.
Over the past year, the prices for the RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti have exhibited remarkable stability. Presently, the RTX 4080 is available for approximately $1,100, offering a marginal discount from the $1,200 MSRP but not a substantial one.
What adds an intriguing layer to this development is the competitive landscape. AMD has introduced more cost-effective alternatives in this segment, such as the RX 7900 XTX 24GB and RX 7900 XT 20GB models.
These AMD options provide larger memory capacities compared to NVIDIA’s offerings, with the latter limited to 16GB. The introduction of the SUPER option is not anticipated to alter this dynamic significantly.
For those contemplating the acquisition of RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4080 models, the window of opportunity is closing rapidly. As the current stock is projected to vanish in the coming weeks, prospective buyers are advised to act promptly if they wish to secure these GPUs before they become relics of the past.
