Retailers have begun listing GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards ahead of their launch next month on November 16, and one of the first appears to be the XLR8 Gaming VERTO GeForce RTX 4080, a custom option from PNY that features a 2,505 MHz boost clock, 16 GB of GDDR6X memory, and ARGB lighting. A listing from Newegg can seemingly confirm that this GPU will be available for $1,199.99, a price that lines up almost exactly with the starting MSRP that NVIDIA has listed for the GeForce RTX 4080 on its official website. PNY had been planning to release a XLR8 Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 (12 GB) as well, but that has been canceled following NVIDIA’s decision to unlaunch that variant in order to reduce confusion among users.
