Love the existing GeForce RTX 40 Series, but hate the “SUPER” name? Better get shopping, then, as the latest rumors suggest that some of NVIDIA’s current, standard models will be gone sooner than expected.
Per a recent post from China’s Board Channels, vendors and manufacturers are currently waving goodbye to the GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070 Ti in anticipation of their SUPER variants, and with that comes the idea that both of these GPUs will be harder to find by the end of the December, or maybe even as early as the end of this month.
NVIDIA has recently reduced its allocation for the GeForce RTX 4080, the inventory of which is already low at manufacturers, it’s claimed, while the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is facing something similar, with recent shipments said to be on the lower side.
Here’s how the post reads, as reported by other outlets:
RTX4080 series: NVIDIA did not allocate a significant quantity of GPUs in the Q4 quarter. Consequently, the inventory levels at various AIC manufacturers are very low. It is anticipated that by November, the inventories of graphics card brands will be depleted and cleared.
RTX4070TI series: The last batch of shipments from NVIDIA in the Q4 quarter was not substantial. Based on the current inventory situation of AIC brand manufacturers, it is expected that clearing the inventory will be swift, with a possibility of completion as early as November and at the latest by December. The primary factors influencing the timeline are the factory’s inventory clearance speed and rhythm control.
A poster from the Board Channels revealed last week that NVIDIA was discontinuing some of its GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs, namely, the GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070 Ti:
According to relatively accurate information, several NVIDIA RTX40 series GPUs have entered the discontinuation stage, and the follow-up is only to digest the inventory cutoff, mainly involving two GPU series NV that have stopped mass production.
NV has stopped mass production of RTX4080\4070TI series GPU models. The last distribution of goods in the 2023Q4 quarter has ended. Each AIC brand has digested its own inventory and is waiting for the arrival of subsequent new products.
There’s no new word yet on whether more SUPER GPUs might be coming (GeForce RTX 4090 SUPER?), but NVIDIA is expected to reveal the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER, GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, and GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER during CES 2024.
