NVIDIA Allegedly Halts RTX 4080/4090 Production to Keep Prices From Dropping

There’s some interesting info coming from the rumor mill. According to Moore’s Law is Dead, NVIDIA has halted the production of its RTX 40 series GPUs, most notably the RTX 4080 and 4090, to keep prices in check. The production capacity of these parts is taken over by the H100 “Hopper” data center GPUs. Contacts with TSMC force Team Green to keep a line open for each GPU, but most of the capacity is being moved to the AI-centric hardware.

On the bright side, NVIDIA has already produced a year’s worth of RTX 40 series GPUs capacity, and poor sales keep ample stock on shelves. Consequently, there may be enough units in the retail market for consumers, and the higher demand for the H100 data center part is hindering the production of the RTX 40 series parts.

As per retailers, the RTX 4080 and 4090 demand remains low but consistent. Unfortunately, stock for these GPUs has almost dried out, limiting sales despite mediocre demand. Looking at Newegg listings indicates that there’s still plenty of stock for the RTX 4080 and 4090 despite the prices being all across the board. All I can say is take this report with a grain of salt.
