The average performance increase of the NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti SUPER in 3DMark tests is 8%, showcasing a notable improvement over the RTX 4070. While the RTX 4070 SUPER demonstrated a significant performance boost compared to the RTX 4070, initial tests on the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER suggest a more modest enhancement.
In summary, the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER exhibits a 15% decrease in speed compared to the RTX 4080, while outperforming the original RTX 4070 Ti by 8%. The gap between these models is anticipated to widen with the upcoming SUPER update for the RTX 4080 expected at the end of January. The original RTX 4080 is slated for discontinuation upon the release of the new card. Similarly, the non-SUPER variant of the RTX 4070 Ti faces a similar fate, with the new SUPER version offering gamers a comparable price but with a slight power boost.
Synthetic benchmarks, especially for the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, might not present the whole picture. This specific model boasts an expanded memory capacity of 16GB, a 4GB improvement from the non-SUPER version. While 3DMark benchmarks may not fully exploit the augmented frame buffer, they could reveal the advantages of enhanced bandwidth. The increased memory capacity might influence high-resolution gaming with Ultra settings, leading to varying outcomes depending on the specific title. GPU-bound games could potentially demonstrate a double-digit performance boost, while others may exhibit more modest gains.
The launch date for the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER is set for January 24, with initial reviews anticipated to be accessible a day prior. In contrast to the RTX 4080 SUPER and 4070 SUPER, the 4070 Ti variant will not showcase a Founder’s Edition design. Consequently, performance variations may arise depending on the specific model tested. Nevertheless, the review coverage on January 23 will concentrate on the so-called MSRP models, all anticipated to share similar clocks and TDP settings.
