NVIDIA RTX 4070 Super and RTX 4070 Ti Super/4080 Super to Feature 12GB and 16GB of VRAM

The launch dates of NVIDIA’s RTX 40 “Super” refresh leaked a while back. The official unveil is scheduled for the 8th of January, during CES 2024. The availability will vary from card to card, with the RTX 4070 Super hitting retail shelves on the 17th of Jan. The RTX 4070 Ti Super will launch on the 24th of Jan, while the RTX 4080 Super will be available on the 31st of Jan. The memory specifications of these cards leaked out the other day.

The GeForce RTX 4070 Super will be the first to launch on the 17th of January with 7,168 cores (vs. 5,888) and 12GB of GDDR6X memory. The bus width will remain the same at 192-bit while the L2 cache will be bumped up to 48MB (vs 36MB). It’ll also feature a higher TBP of 240W (vs 220W), offering an uplift of 15-20%. Out of all the Supers, this is getting the most notable, meant to tackle the Radeon RX 7800 XT.

The RTX 4070 Ti Super will launch on the 24th of Jan. Equipped with 8,448 cores (vs 7,680) and 16GB of GDDR6X memory (vs 12GB), it’ll be an all-round upgrade over the base Ti. The bus will also be widened to 256-bit (vs 192-bit), while the L2 cache and TBP will remain unchanged at 48MB and 285W, respectively. These changes should grant the 4070 Ti Super a 10-15% uplift over the existing variant.

The RTX 4080 Super will hit retail shelves on the 31st of January. A mild upgrade over the 4080, it will leverage the full-fledged AD103 die with 10,240 shaders (vs. 9,728) and 16GB of GDDR6X memory across a 256-bit bus. The cache and power will remain unchanged at 64MB and 320W, respectively. In terms of performance, you’re looking at a modest 3-5% improvement over the base model.

The prices of the RTX 4070 Super and 4070 Ti Super should be the same as their non-Super counterparts. The RTX 4080 Super is a bit of a mystery. At $1,199, it’ll cost the same as the 4080 or slightly cheaper at around $999. Meanwhile, the RTX 4070 Ti and 4080 will be discontinued, and the 4070 will get a price cut.
