Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card with 16GB of memory is a little more than two weeks away, so it is about time for manufacturers of add-in-boards (AIBs) to start sharing images of their products. TechPowerUp and VideoCardz published the first photos of GeForce RTX 4080 cards from Gigabyte and MSI. For avid readers who are wondering about the melting issue, we can confirm your worst 16-pin fears.  

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card uses the AD103 graphics processing unit based on the Ada Lovelace architecture with 9728 CUDA cores connected to 16GB of 22.4 GT/s GDDR6X memory on a 256-bit interface. The product, which could join the ranks of the best graphics cards for gaming, is expected to consume up to 320W of power. That figure is in line with the consumption of Nvidia’s previous-generation GeForce RTX 3080 graphics board. So expect these units to come with huge coolers.

Gigabyte’s GeForce RTX 4080 Eagle graphics card comes with a monstrous 3.5-wide triple-fan cooler that is also rather ‘tall.’. VideoCardz does not disclose the graphics card clocks, though it definitely will not be clocked lower than Nvidia’s recommended 2210 MHz base and 2505 MHz boost clocks. The board will use a 12VHPWR (12+4-pin power connector), though we do not know whether Gigabyte will bundle Nvidia’s 16-pin adapter with the product.
