First images of the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 4080 EAGLE

Already there are only a few weeks left for the first GeForce RTX 4080 to hit the market. As you may remember, only models equipped with 16 gigabytes of RAM will finally do so, after NVIDIA took the smart, in my opinion, decision to cancel the launch of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB, announced a few weeks earlier at the launch event of the new generation of technology graphics.

Its arrival on the market will take place on November 16, that is, in two and a half weeks, and the recommended price by NVIDIA is 1,469 euros, although we can certainly expect that many of the models based on this reference design will add multiple elements that will raise their price. That it is more or less substantial is no longer so predictable, but given what happened with the RTX 4090, it should not surprise us too much to find prices well above that of the NVIDIA base design.

And in many cases, it is the “extras” of each model based on the common design that make the difference. Models specially designed for overclocking, solutions that integrate a liquid cooling system, designs with and without LEDs… manufacturers have a wide margin to customize their proposals and, in this way, compete in such a complex market and that, in the case of the high range, it also has a limited scope, since they are not devices within the reach of any pocket.

This explains to us that, as its official launch date approaches, we have more and more interest in knowing the specific proposals of each manufacturer and, therefore, that each leak is welcomed with open arms. Such is the case of Videocardz, which has managed to acquire the first images of a GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 4080 EAGLE. A card that, as we could already imagine, has a design that has little or nothing to envy to many of those that we have already seen from the RTX 4090. We do not know, for the moment, the specifications of this model, but let us remember the generic ones of NVIDIA:

GeForce RTX 4080 16GB
Plate-SKU PG139-SKU360
Architecture Ada (TSMC 4 nanometers)
CUDA kernels 9,728
Execution units 76
maximum frequency 2,510 megahertz
base frequency 2,210 megahertz
Memory 16 Gigabyte GDDR6X
memory bandwidth 256 bit
TGP by default 320 watts
maximum TGP 516 watts
connectors 1x HDMI 2.1a, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a
Feeding 3 x 8-pin PCIe cables or 1 x 450W or more PCIe Gen 5 cable

How could it be otherwise, we find a design that uses three fans not working symmetrically Well, as you can see in the photo, the orientation of the blades of the central one is the reverse of that of the two side fans, a very efficient design that we have already seen in other models, and that substantially improves the inlet flow- output (cold-hot), something key for the proper functioning of devices with these characteristics. And if it looks familiar at a glance, there are reasons for it, since it features the same 110-millimeter fan design as the RTX 4090 Gaming OC cards.

We can also check that its size is much larger than what we can consider its predecessor, the RTX 3080 seriesWell, we find that it has jumped to 3.5 slots. It is equipped with a 16-pin power connector and offers a port configuration consisting of three DisplayPort 1.4a and one HDMI 2.1.
