We ran the numbers and Nvidia’s RTX 4080 cards don’t add up

So it started. The next-gen graphics feast we’ve been waiting for is here. However I have been very disappointed. Nvidia has taken the wraps off its new RTX 40-series graphics cards, also known as Ada Lovelace, and the numbers don’t add up.

High-end RTX 4090 (opens in new tab) From a technical standpoint, the motherboard and the AD102 GPU it contains look great.But what Nvidia does with two RTX 4080 boards (opens in new tab) is deep, very disappointing, and maybe even cynical. Let’s prove it with numbers. Lots of numbers.
