The Nvidia RTX 4080 has arrived a month after the Nvidia RTX 4090. Based on early reviews, Nvidia’s latest “Lovelace” graphics card is about 30 percent faster than its predecessor, the Nvidia RTX 3080, and overall faster than the entire Nvidia RTX 30 series. Like the RTX 4090, this massive card also boasts the new DLSS 3, which can exponentially increase frame rates in video games.

But is the $1,199 Nvidia RTX 4080 worth the asking price? While it certainly offers better performance than previous-gen cards, those boosts may not mean much to those who are happy with their existing GPU. However, serious PC gaming enthusiasts who want a current-gen Nvidia card but can’t afford the $1,599 RTX 4090 could find it worthwhile.
