Hoping they use this as an opportunity to restructure both of the 4080's.
The 12 GB needs to be renamed to 4070 and both cards need a price cut of at least $200. Using the 4090 as a baseline.
The 16 GB model would probably do fine at $1200 but is there really a market for the 12 GB at $900? Nvidia must have seen the writing on the wall.
$700 for a **70 is still crazy. Needs to be around $500.
It is also 24-30% slower than the 16GB.
Typically the **70 is closer to around 20-24% slower than the **80 if I am not mistaken.
So if we're looking at 24-30% slower, this is a weak entry for a **70 as it is. Even if they rename this to a "4070", it will still be fairly lackluster, and it would absolutely need to be $500 or less. The 4080 12GB is more like a "4060ti" or "4060 Super".
