NVIDIA’s RTX 40 “Super” Refresh looks real and may come after the holiday season. Three SKUs are planned: The RTX 4080 Super 16GB, the RTX 4070 Ti Super 16GB, and the RTX 4070 Super 12GB. The first two will leverage the AD103 GPU, while the latter will be based on the AD104. The GeForce RTX 4080 Super will likely adopt the fully-enabled AD103 die with 10,240 cores across 80 SMs and (maybe?) faster 24Gbps memory.
It should be up to 15% faster than the RTX 4080, with a price tag of $999 to $1,199. Depending on how Jensen feels, that’s a smidge more performance for the same price or less. The RTX 4070 Ti Super will get a VRAM upgrade (from 12GB to 16GB). A cut-down AD103 die with slightly fewer cores than the RTX 4080 should do the trick. Expect the same memory and bus configuration as well. The resulting GPU should be as fast as the RTX 4080 with a market price of $799-$899.
The GeForce RTX 4070 Super will be based on the AD104 die. It will look similar to an RTX 4070 Ti, with fewer cores and similar performance. A price of $599 to $649 is being planned. Although the specifications may have been finalized, the price hasn’t. Depending on how the holiday season goes, we might get the same price tags or lower.
If the best-case scenario comes true, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and 4080 may be discontinued or discounted. The RTX 4070, being a popular SKU, won’t be discontinued, but may get a price cut. As for AMD, depending on how the RTX 4070 Super and RTX 4080 Super are priced, a price cut or refresh may become compulsory.
