NVIDIA launches three “Super” GeForce RTX 40s, starting at 659 euros

Like AMD, NVIDIA is taking advantage of CES in Las Vegas to launch new graphics cards. No revolution, but “Super” versions of the RTX 4080, 4070 Ti and 4070. We gathered the different changes (frequencies, CUDA cores, memory, etc.) in a comparison table.

NVIDIA had skipped “Super” cards with its previous generation, the RTX 30. So we have to go back to the RTX 20 series in 2019 to find the first GeForce RTX “Super”. The new current-gen “Supers” come almost a year and a half after the announcement of the first GeForce RTX 40 series using the Ada Lovelace architecture.

RTX 4070 Super

We attack right away with the RTX 4070 Super which is positioned between the GeForce RTX 4070 and the Ti version. NVIDIA hardly changes the frequencies, but adds 21.7% of Cuda Cores to its GPU (it's still AD104), to reach 7,168 (compared to 7,680 in the RTX 4070 Ti and 5,888 in the RTX 4070). We stick to 12 GB GDDR6X at 192 bits.

Performance follows the same trend as the number of Cuda Cores: between 22 and 24% more TFLOPs in Shaders, Ray Tracing and Tensor. We have grouped all these elements in a table at the end of the news.

RTX 4070 Ti Super

We continue with the RTX 4070 Ti Super, which is therefore reasonably close to the RTX 4080. This is even more so as the 4070 Ti Super is powered by an AD103 GPU like the RTX 4080 and not an AD104 like the RTX 4070 Ti Super found in the 4070 Ti .

The number of Cuda Cores only increases by 10% to reach 8,448 instead of 7,680. But the GPU is mostly entitled to 16GB of GDDR6X at 256-bit (memory bandwidth increases to 672GB/s), instead of 12GB on the RTX 4070 Ti. The number of TFLOPS increases by about 10%.

RTX 4080 Super

Let's finish with the RTX 4080 Super. It uses 10,240 Cuda Cores compared to 9,728 for the non-Super version. Therefore, we find a full AD103 GPU, while it was reduced by a few units in the RTX 4080.

On the frequency side, it's just 2% faster at Boost frequency (2.55GHz instead of 2.51GHz). No change in memory with still 16 GB GDDR6X at 256 bits. TFLOP performance increases by 6 to 7% according to NVIDIA.

From 659 to 1,109 euros, two RTX 40s leave the list

NVIDIA announces prices of €659 for the RTX 4070 Super (available January 17), €889 for the 4070 Ti Super (January 24) and €1,109 for the RTX 4080 Super (January 31). The RTX 4070 Super and 4080 Super are eligible for “Founders Edition” (with NVIDIA design), but not the RTX 4070 Ti Super. In all cases, NVIDIA partners will also offer graphics cards.

Of the three non-'Super' cards listed today, only the RTX 4070 remains on the list, the RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti actually sitting in the closet. For several months now, the price of the RTX 4070 has been reduced by the manufacturer to $549. It maintains this value by reshaping the range.

The RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti remain priced the same as when they launched in May 2023, at $299 and $399 for 8GB ($499 for 16GB). No change either for the very high-end RTX 4090 graphics card at $1,599.

NVIDIA has published several internal benchmarks for its new graphics cards online.
