The RTX 4080 SUPER disappoints: 20GB of memory is nowhere to be found and the improvement is only minimal. How are the other models doing?

The last few weeks have been discussing new additions to the family of desktop graphics cards Nvidia Ada Lovelace. The green team should officially rebuild them early next year, during a presentation that is part of the popular trade show CES 2024. The broadcast will be available to watch on January 8, as we informed you here on Thursday.

Specifically, there was talk of the fact that Nvidia will release three new models, i.e. SUPER variants of already existing graphics cards from the RTX 40 series. Specifically, we are talking about RTX 4080 SUPER, RTX 4070 Ti SUPER and RTX 4070 SUPERwhich will focus on adding CUDA cores, or graphics memory.

But as far as the specifications are concerned, the situation was confused from the beginning. The statements of individual leakers or news portals often differed, so it was not really known what to expect. However, the trusted foreign server Wccftech has now evidently obtained all the key information, which includes not only the parameters, but also the details regarding the approximate performance.


Let’s start with the best model. RTX 4080 SUPER will bring 10,240 CUDA cores, through the larger AD103 graphics chip in the AD103-400 configuration. 320 TMU and 112 ROP should be available. The cache capacity is then 64 MB. Regarding graphics memory, previously discussed Unfortunately, we will not get 20 GB, and the wider bus with the alleged 320-bit interface will not be present either. So you can count on 16GB of VRAM of the GDDR6X type and a 256-bit bus. The TGP value remains at the same 320 W as in the case of the standard RTX 4080.

If we then focus specifically on performance, the RTX 4080 SUPER is said to be average 3-5% faster than the classic RTX 4080. However, Wccftech notes that some models from Nvidia partners will be able to provide up to a 10% increase in performance.


Now let’s take a look at the specs of the strangest graphics card in the entire lineup, and perhaps the most unusual effort from Nvidia in recent times – RTX 4070 Ti SUPER. The confidential designation, which at first even the insiders themselves did not want to believe, was already confirmed in a recent leak, and the closer we get to CES 2024, the more likely the release of this model seems.

The RTX 4070 Ti SUPER will reportedly get it 8,448 CUDA cores, either with the AD103-275 chip or with the AD102-175 chip. Both variants have 48MB L2 cache. It will be a pleasant change 16GB of GDDR6X memory, which will use a bus with a 256-bit interface. Compared to the classic RTX 4070 Ti, owners of the SUPER variant will therefore be able to use 4 GB more VRAM (and with higher throughput). The RTX 4070 Ti SUPER will reportedly deliver 15% increase in performance, which definitely sounds better than the RTX 4080 SUPER. TGP will remain at 285W.


And finally the RTX 4070 SUPER. This card boasts by a high increase in CUDA cores, which will get 7,168 (instead of the original 5,888). As for the GPU specifically, either the AD104-350 or the AD103-175 will be available. This time too, the card will offer 48MB of L2 cache. Unfortunately, neither the memory capacity nor the bus width changes. However, due to the addition of a high number of CUDA cores consumption increases, from 200 W to 220 W.

Despite the fact that the RTX 4070 SUPER will offer more than 20% more CUDA cores than the RTX 4070, the increase performance by only 14% on average.

Wccftech also mentions that it will get the RTX 4070 SUPER new power connector, which will be CEM 5.1 Gen5. Previous RTX 4070 models used either eight-pin or twelve-pin (depending on the AIB approach).


Many of you would certainly be interested in the price (and of course us too), but unfortunately, it seems that Nvidia has not yet agreed on specific amounts. Previously, we could only hear that the RTX 4080 SUPER will receive the same price as the classic RTX 4080 at its original release. In the Czech Republic, it could therefore cost something around 36,000 crowns, which will nicely fill the gap between RTX 4080 and RTX 4090.
