NVIDIA is expected to launch (or at least announce) the GeForce RTX 40 Super GPUs on the 8th of Jan, 2024. As part of a “Special Address,” Jensen or Jeff Fisher is expected to unveil the Ada Lovelace Refresh and counter AMD’s recently rolled-out Radeon RX 7700 XT/7800 XT lineup. The event will be held during CES 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the US, and will be the only consumer-centric hardware event of H1 2024.
The packaging of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super leaked out a few days back. The 4070 Ti Super will switch from the AD104 to the larger AD103 GPU. A healthy shader count upgrade from 7,680 to 8,448 cores is expected. You can also count on faster memory and a wider bus. The L2 cache should stay unchanged at 48MB.
The GeForce RTX 4070 Super will be the most important of the three, challenging AMD’s Radeon RX 7800 XT. A lofty upgrade over the stock 4070, it’ll pack 7,168 shaders (up from 5,888), a fatter L2 cache (36MB->48MB), and potentially, a wider bus, though I’m not sure if it’ll happen as we’re looking at a low-res GPU.
The RTX 4080 Super is said to be a minor upgrade over the RTX 4080 with slightly more cores and (maybe) faster memory. The RTX 4080 leverages the (almost) fully enabled AD103 GPU with 9,728 shaders and 64MB of L2 cache. Its Super variant can enable the few hundred unused cores on the die, and if Jensen feels like it, pair it with faster memory.
