As we head into CES 2024, the graphics card world is buzzing about the prospect of a new Nvidia RTX 4070 Super graphics card, and it’s safe to say we’re as excited as anyone for the new GPU to hit the scene.
The RTX 4070 Super will offer gamers another tempting option, even if it’s more at the high end of the price spectrum for a seemingly mid-range card, but it should be an attractive alternative to the Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti, especially since it’s rumored goes that it offers about the same level of performance for a few hundred dollars less. Whether it will be one of the best graphics cards of 2024 remains to be seen, but we like to see its chances.
But given stiff competition from the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT, will the RTX 4070 Super be enough for Nvidia to regain Team Green’s mid-range dominance? Here’s everything we know about the next big GPU we expect to see in 2024.
Nvidia RTX 4070 Super: Get to the point
- What is it? Nvidia’s next upper mid-range graphics card
- When will it be available? It may be launched as early as January 2024
- What will it cost? Rumors estimate it to be between $599 and $649 in the US
Nvidia RTX 4070 Super: release date
While nothing is certain yet, an RTX 4070 Super announcement is reportedly expected at CES 2024, possibly as early as January 8, 2024. The card would then go on sale on January 17, 20241, followed by the RTX 4070 Ti Super on January 24. , followed by the RTX 4080 Super on January 31.
Nvidia RTX 4070 Super: price
The Nvidia RTX 4070 Super is expected to retail for between $599 and $649. This would put it at or slightly above the RTX 4070, and since the RTX 4070 is expected to sell even after the launch of the RTX 4070 Super at market, it’s likely that the card will sell for a little more than the RTX 4070. So either the RTX 4070 will see a price cut, or the RTX 4070 Super will sell for a little more than the base model.
This would still place both cards higher than the competing AMD RX 7800 XT, so AMD would still have a significant advantage based on price.
Nvidia RTX 4070 Super: specifications and performance
We don’t know anything yet about the RTX 4070 Super in terms of specs and performance, but a recent rumor from IT Home, a Chinese tech site that is a regular source of rumors about computer components, places its performance close to that of the RTX 4070 Ti. , which would require a lot more than the 5,888 CUDA cores that the RTX 4070 has, so the RTX 4070 Super is likely a cut-down version of the Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti.
According to TechPowerUpwill have the RTX 4070 Super 7,168 CUDA cores, 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a 192-bit memory bus and an effective memory clock speed of 21 Gbps, with a core boost clock speed of 2,610 MHz.
