Nvidia has officially announced Super variants for its widely popular RTX 40 series desktop GPUs at CES 2024, putting an end to months of speculation.
The Super lineup, consisting of the RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super and RTX 4070 Super, brings enhanced features and performance to cater to the diverse needs of gamers.
The Super GPUs, based on the Ada Lovelace architecture, introduce support for DLSS 3 and DLSS 3.5, in addition to the first and second generations of Nvidia's supersampling technologies.
These advancements promise to elevate the gaming experience, providing improved visual fidelity and performance.
RTX 4080 Super: Elevating 4K Gaming
Nvidia touts the RTX 4080 Super as the powerhouse for 4K gaming enthusiasts.
This premium GPU features the full AD103 GPU, boasting 10,240 CUDA cores and 80 SMs.
Additionally, the company claims that it outperforms its predecessor the RTX 4080, delivering twice the performance of the RTX 3080 Ti graphics card.
The RTX 4080 Super also introduces faster 23Gbps GDDR6X memory, contributing to its impressive capabilities.
Priced at $999, it's set to release on January 31.
RTX 4070 Ti Super: High-End 1440p Experience
Targeting high-end 1440p gaming, the RTX 4070 Ti Super features the AD103 chip from the RTX 4080 family.
With 8,448 CUDA cores, a 256-bit aggregated memory bus and 16GB GDDR6X memory running at 21Gbps, it promises a 10% increase in cores, equating to around 10% higher frame rates on average.
Priced at $799, the RTX 4070 Ti Super will be available on January 24.
Notably, it will not receive a Founder's Edition, requiring buyers to opt for OEM options such as MSI or Gigabyte.
RTX 4070 Super: Mid-Range 1440p Option
The RTX 4070 Super is the best fit for users seeking a mid-range 1440p gaming experience with excellent value.
Launching on January 17 with a price tag of $599, it features a significant GPU upgrade, boasting 7,168 CUDA cores compared to its predecessor's 5,888.
Despite this increase, the memory specification remains unchanged at 12GB GDDR6X at 21Gbps, maintaining affordability.
All three Super GPUs are set to replace their non-Super counterparts—the RTX 4080, RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4070.
Nvidia positions the RTX 4090 as the current flagship, claiming it to be "substantially faster" than the new RTX 4080 Super.
In addition to the GPU releases, Nvidia's CES keynote revealed that DLSS support is coming to the PC port of Horizon Forbidden West, the RTX Remix tool is set to release in beta later this month, and two upcoming Activision Blizzard games will join the GeForce Now platform shortly.
