Nvidia has launched the new RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070Ti Super, and RTX 4070 Super GPUs for CES 2024. The mid-life refresh of the 4000 series has some very welcome price reductions compared to the outgoing models.
The RTX 4080 Super will retail for $999 as compared to the $1,199 of the original RTX 4080.
The RTX 4070Ti Super will be $799 which is the same price as the outgoing RTX 4070Ti launched at.
The RTX 4070 Super will be $599 which is also the same price the outgoing RTX 4070 launched at.
Of high interest to the SFF community is the RTX 4070 Super as Nvidia is claiming it will give better performance than the last generation RTX 3090 while only using 220 watts of power in a 2-slot form factor. This could lead to some very small card designs and substantial increase in performance per liter of volume. Nvidia’s reference model offering is 244mm long, 112mm wide, and 2-slots thick. Additionally, the RTX 4070 Super offers 7,168 CUDA cores compared to the 5,888 of the RTX 4070 while maintaining the same boost clock, and a slightly higher base clock.
Switching to the RTX 4070Ti Super, we see a less of an increase in CUDA cores, but a substantial overhaul of the VRAM. The RTX 4070Ti Super will now have 16GB of GDDR6X on a 256-bit bus as opposed to the 12GB on a 192-bit bus of the original RTX 4070Ti. That should add some longevity to the purchase of this card while also giving a nice performance bump in bandwidth limited situations.
The RTX 4080 Super doesn’t feature very many performance related changes as compared to the outgoing RTX 4080. However, it does feature a $200 price cut in comparison. This brings the card down to $999 from $1199, which may be more palatable to the gaming public. Nvidia is promising twice the performance of the last generation RTX 3080Ti at 320 watts of power usage. However, Nvidia factors DLSS 3.0 into that assessment which has frame generation for the 4000 series GPUs. As such the non-frame gen performance will likely not be much more than the current RTX 4080. Nvidia claims it’s 1.4X faster than a RTX 3080 Ti without frame generation in their presentation.
The RTX 4080 Super will be available on January 31, 2024. Click here for the RTX 4080 Super product page.
