GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER With AD102 GPUs Confirmed By Colorful

Colorful has officially announced that their latest RTX 4070 Ti SUPER cards, known as “V2,” include the NVIDIA AD102 graphics processor. This marks the first confirmation from a board partner regarding the new specification for this SKU.

While Colorful has not specified the exact variant of the AD102 GPU, information from yesterday suggested it might be the AD102-225. If true, this would make it the fourth RTX 40 series card to feature a non-standard GPU.

NVIDIA seldom discloses the exact GPU processor for specific models, making this information hard to obtain. However, reviewers’ guides for media typically provide these details. While NVIDIA can technically swap the GPU at any time with nearly identical specifications, minor differences such as power consumption or access to certain encoding capabilities often emerge in practice.

These differences hinder global launches of non-standard models and are likely the primary reason why these models are usually restricted to certain regions, due to the limited availability of such GPUs. The objective remains consistent: to sell heavily cut-down GPUs that do not meet the standards for higher-tier SKUs, such as the RTX 4090D.

Regarding the specifications of individual models, Colorful has introduced new iGame Vulcan and iGame Advanced series. By focusing on the Vulcan model and utilizing Colorful’s comparison tool, we can see that the new card labeled as V2 employs the AD102 GPU. The clock speeds and memory specifications remain unchanged, but since this card is essentially an RTX 4090D with reduced specs, it features a more advanced cooler. The card is 1 cm thicker and uses nine 8 mm heat pipes instead of the previous configuration of four 6 mm and two 8 mm ones. In theory, this should enable the card to achieve higher boost speeds due to improved cooling capacity.

In terms of power, both cards have a non-reference 310W specification, so it is unclear if the AD102 model actually requires more power, similar to the MSI card, which had an increased TDP from 285 to 295 watts.
