NVIDIA has hinted at the imminent launch of the GeForce RTX 40 SUPER series less than a week before its debut, teasing the release on social media. While the company hasn’t directly labeled their profile/cover images with references to the SUPER series, the teaser suggests the arrival of new GeForce RTX cards on the horizon.
On January 8th, during the CES 2024 Special Address, NVIDIA plans to unveil the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER, RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, and RTX 4070 SUPER. The presentation will showcase the new GPUs, offering comprehensive specifications and pricing information. It’s important to note that these cards won’t be accessible for purchase until January 17, which marks the official launch date for the first of the three. Notably, two SKUs (4080S and 4070TiS) are anticipated to substitute current models, while rumors suggest the RTX 4070S will coexist with its non-SUPER variant.
The fastest variant, RTX 4080 SUPER, won’t showcase increased memory capacity but will provide a marginal speed enhancement (23 Gbps compared to 22.4 Gbps). Moreover, the card will feature more CUDA cores than its non-SUPER counterpart (10240 vs. 9728) while retaining the identical TDP of 320W.
The RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, equipped with a 16GB memory boost, positions itself as a potential rival to the AMD RX 7800 XT. Notably, the card will integrate additional CUDA cores while maintaining the original model’s 285W TDP.
Significantly, the RTX 4070 SUPER, anticipated as the most substantial upgrade in the SUPER series, will premiere with 7168 CUDA cores, marking a 20% increase. Noteworthy is that this model is the sole member of the SUPER series with a higher TDP compared to the original version. The RTX 4070 SUPER is scheduled to be the initial card to hit the market on January 17th.
