NVIDIA RTX 4080 16GB is much faster than RTX 4080 12GB 

NVIDIA shares some new benchmarks for its upcoming RTX 4080 series, reports Overclock3D.

These benchmarks feature three games, all tested at 4K resolution with Core i9-12900K system. Games tested include A Plague Tale: Requiem, F1 22 and Microsoft Flight Simulator. Official benchmark charts (which we included below) are actually a showcase of DLSS technology in action, however these charts also feature pure raster performance without any resolution upscaling boosters.

According to this data, the RTX 4080 16GB would be 24% to 30% faster than a 12GB variant. That is indeed a wide gap between both cards that share the same SKU name, but entirely different configurations.

Here’s a reminder that RTX 4080 16GB features AD103 GPU with 9728 CUDA cores while RTX 4080 is equipped with AD104 processor with 7680 cores. That’s 26% more cores on the 16GB variant. However, major changes can also be seen in memory bus width (256-bit vs. 192-bit) and TDP range (320W vs. 285W).

It also looks like RTX 4080 12GB won’t be able to outperform RTX 3090 Ti in benchmarks, but it at least it is 10-20% faster than original RTX 3080. Both models are to launch in November, but NVIDIA is yet to confirm the exact date.
