NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 vs RTX 4070 Super: 33 Gaming Benchmarks

We compare the GeForce RTX 4070 and the 4070 Super across 33 gaming benchmarks to decide the winner!

The GeForce RTX 4070 Super was the most well-received of the three Supers. It is an upgraded variant of the RTX 4070 with more cores, more cache, and a slightly higher power limit. The memory size and bus width are identical to the 4070, as are the core and memory clocks. In this post, we’ll compare the two GPUs across 33 gaming benchmarks to pick the winner.

Test Bench

  • CPU: Intel Core i9-13900K.
  • Cooler: Lian Li Galahad 360.
  • Motherboard: ASUS Z790 Maximus Hero.
  • Memory: 16GB x2 DDR5-6000 CL30.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 vs RTX 4070 Super: Specs Comparison

Like the RTX 4070, the GeForce RTX 4070 Super leverages the AD104 GPU. Both are paired with 12GB of GDDR6X memory via a 192-bit bus. However, the RTX 4070 Super features 7168 cores (+22% more), up from 5888 on the RTX 4070. These are spread across 56 and 46 SMs, respectively. While the memory and bus width are the same, the RTX 4070 Super packs slightly more L2 cache at 48MB versus 36MB on the vanilla 4070.

The Super also increases the TBP (Total Board Power) to 220W, up from 200W on the 4070. Coming to the pricing, the RTX 4070 Super retails at $599 (RTX 4070’s launch MSRP), while the 4070 has dropped to $519. This establishes an almost $100 price delta between the two GPUs.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 vs RTX 4070 Super: 1080p Gaming Benchmarks

1080p remains the most popular resolution among gamers, with 59.70% of Steam users still relying on an FHD display. At 1080p, the gaming performance largely relies on the shader or core count and fixed function units (ROPs and TMUs). A small to moderate-sized cache is also beneficial as it reduces the memory latency and bus traffic.

Rasterization Average, Efficiency, and Performance/Dollar

In 1080p rasterization, the GeForce RTX 4070 Super is 13% faster than the 4070 on average across eleven games. Most titles are 13% to 15% faster on the Super, although there are some outliers like Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Ghostwire Tokyo, where the delta extends to 20% and 30%, respectively. Likewise, games like “The Callisto: Protocol” and Hitman 3 perform similarly on the two GPUs.

The GeForce RTX 4070 has the highest average power consumption (TBP) in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, where it draws an average of 195W. The RTX 4070 Super maintains an average power draw of 219W, leading to a slightly higher power efficiency figure over the 4070. The value-for-money aspect of the two GPUs is almost identical with a tiny advantage for the latter.
