Nvidia has notified partners of GeForce RTX 40 SUPER GPUs
Recent reports have indicated that Nvidia has finalized the release timing for the GeForce RTX 40 Series SUPER, targeting the period around CES 2024 in the early part of next year. This new lineup, based on the Ada Lovelace architecture, includes three models: the RTX 4080 SUPER, RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, and RTX 4070 SUPER.
According to Wccftech, as the launch date of the GeForce RTX 40 Series SUPER draws near, Nvidia has informed its partners of upcoming updates and shared more detailed information about the new graphics cards, including specifications and design requirements.
The GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER features the AD103-400, with a 64MB L2 cache. It will boast 10,240 CUDA cores, an increase of 512 cores (approximately 5.3%) compared to the existing RTX 4080’s 9,728 cores. The memory capacity remains at 16GB. With a PCB designated as PG139-SKU355, its total power consumption is expected to stay at 320W. Performance improvements are anticipated to be modest, around 5%, with the rumored official suggested retail price (MSRP) ranging from $999 to $1,099.
The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, equipped with either the AD103-275 or AD102-175, will have a 48MB L2 cache and 8,448 CUDA cores. This represents a 10% increase over the current RTX 4070 Ti’s 7,680 cores. Its PCB, labeled PG141-SKU323, maintains a total power consumption of 285W. The most significant change for this model is in its memory: it will feature 16GB of GDDR6X, expanding the memory bus width from 192-bit to 256-bit. However, combined with the memory speed, the total bandwidth will be lower than that of the RTX 4080 SUPER. A performance increase of about 15% is expected, with the rumored MSRP between $799 and $849.
The GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER, carrying either the AD104-350 or AD103-175, will see its L2 cache increase from the current RTX 4070’s 36MB to 48MB. The number of CUDA cores will rise from 5,888 to 7,168, an increase of approximately 21.7%. It will maintain a 12GB memory capacity, and its PCB, marked as PG141-SKU335, will see a slight increase in total power consumption to 220W. Performance improvements are estimated to be around 14%, closely rivaling the existing RTX 4070 Ti, with the rumored MSRP between $599 and $649.
Additionally, Nvidia had initially planned to release the GeForce RTX 4090 SUPER, but recent, more stringent regulatory measures have led the company to abandon this plan.
