NVIDIA announced that it would be "unlaunching" the GeForce RTX 4080 (12 GB) on October 14, reasoning that having two GPUs with the 4080 designation would be "confusing."

[…] in response to the question of the decision to cancel the release of the RTX 4080 12GB model, which was unexpectedly announced last weekend, products with different memory capacities for the same model name are usually to provide the same performance at a reasonable price, but this RTX 4080 16GB and 12GB The performance difference was significant.

The model name is decided so that consumers can predict the performance to some extent, but we asked for your understanding that the RTX 4080 16GB and 12GB was canceled because it was judged that the difference was large and could cause confusion to customers.


Duh.

side note:
"unexpectedly" announced?

side side note:
Why does Korea get to have their own CEO? I've never heard of that, without it being some sort of subsidary.

If NVIDIA is something like Sony, well, NVIDIA has an "CEO" on all continents that sells NVIDIA products.

A lot of countries require a separate entity be I'm them that has specifc citizen requirements on ownership. Any company in India has a India branch that is 51% owned by Indian citizens.
