Opinions? - Personally: if I can get one I'll pick up a 4080 16GB card. - That said, this is a perfect example as to why manufacturers should be required to post the card specs on the boxes. I CANNOT abide by the fact that they are selling 2 completely different GPUs under the same card name with the only notation that one is 16GB, while the other is 12GB. These are in fact 2 completely different cards, with 2 different GPU skus, different SM counts, different CUDA core counts, and different Memory Bus bit counts / throughput. Let's call it what it is: a damn 4070. Yes, we can see the difference in the above "spec" sheet, however in the store these are not posted anywhere... especially not on the box the card comes in. It's a blatant money grab. Nvidia knows they cannot sell an RTX 4070 for $899 US. So they come up with this sku, name it a variant of the 4080, and boom... an apparently "cheaper" 4080. The average consumer is going to buy this card thinking they are getting a cheaper 4080... same card, with less memory, and $300 cheaper. Shame on Nvidia. Gotta make that money back from the average consumer now that your honey pot of miners has dried up, hmmm?
