NVIDIA RTX 4080 Drops to $899 (-$300): RTX 4070 Series GPUs Lead Bestsellers

NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4080 (no, not the Super) has been discounted to an all-time low on Amazon. From its launch price of $1199, the 80-class Ada Lovelace GPU has dropped to $899, $100 less than the official MSRP of the RTX 4080 Super. If you didn’t already know, the RTX 4080 and 4080 Super perform about the same. Ergo, this is as good as getting the RTX 4080 Super.

The PNY GeForce RTX 4080 features the same specifications as the RTX 4080 Founders Edition, with a boost clock of 2.51 GHz (versus 2.55 GHz on the 4080 Super). The memory clocks in at 22.4 Gbps versus 23 Gbps on the RTX 4080 Super. The shader count, at 9728, is 512 less than that featured on the 4080 Super (10240). This affects the RT, Tensor Cores, and TMUs, but the rest is the same.

The GPU bestsellers chart is dominated by NVIDIA’s RTX 4070 series graphics cards, including the RTX 4070, 4070 Super, 4070 Ti, 4070 Ti Super, etc. At Mindfactory, Germany’s largest hardware retailer, the RTX 4060 Ti is the most popular GPU, followed by the RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super, RX 7800 XT, and the RTX 4070. There are three 70-class GPUs among the top six SKUs.


Amazon and Newegg have similar bestselling charts, with at least four RTX 4070-class GPUs among the top ten graphics cards. Some of these aren’t even priced fairly. For example, the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4070 Gaming OC V2 is going for $559 (-$10 code) but shouldn’t cost more than $419 as it competes with the Radeon RX 7900 GRE.
