Undecided between opting for the 4070 or adopting the added power of the 4080? RTX 4080 deals may tip you towards the latter, and this piece is for you. Because there are a couple of factors you’ll want to consider before parting with your money on a new graphics card.

Naturally, if you need a new graphics card right now, you need a graphics card and it may be hard to wait. So I’d recommend checking our PC and Tech deals section, where we work to bring you the latest and greatest offers on GPUs in general. If your need isn’t urgent, here are a couple of things to think about. And, ultimately, why I’d wait for RTX 4080 deals right now.

RTX 4080 deals in November?

Will there be more RTX 4080 deals in the future? The answer to this question is, ultimately, yes. But will it take weeks, months, or longer for decent drops? I’m confident it won’t take too long, considering we’re quickly coming up to a prime shopping period. Black Friday GPU deals will surely see RTX 4080 discounts emerge. But there is another factor here, price trends.

MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 pricing since launch – noting a steep drop for Prime Day

Much like my research on the RTX 3090, I’ve used the price-tracking site Camelcamelcamel to understand the shifts in RTX 4080 pricing since its arrival in November 2022. What does it tell us? Two clear things. First, standard RTX 4080 variants generally follow the same trend of a slow drop in price this year. For Example, the MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 4080 has gone from around $1,300 to $1,200 since first being listed on Amazon, with some discounts in the middle.

But the biggest drop in price came in mid-July, which saw that specific card on sale for $1,109 for Prime Day. That reveals the second point, that Black Friday is likely to see standard RTX 4080 cards go down to at least that price. But I think we’ll see it lower, particularly because of a stable $1,200 price since the end of September, and the impact of the year’s largest deals event.

New variant considerations

There’s a further point here too. With RTX 4080 Super rumors emerging, any new variant may be looking at an early 2024 release – regardless of whether it’s needed. The weight of those rumors could lead to further drops in November, but probably not unless buyer demand dries up…or Nvidia officially confirms the card is coming. What’s more likely is a sharp dip for the 4080 during Black Friday (I’d expect close to $1,000, since prices will probably best Prime Day), followed by a return to low pricing as soon as any RTX 4080 Super is confirmed.

Either way, if you’re looking for an RTX 4080 right now, I’d probably hold off for a week or two. See the early Black Friday deals arrive and any offers there first. But there’s a high chance that you’ll get more value in the very near future – and every dollar counts when you’re spending big on graphics.
