NVIDIA’s RTX Lineup Expands: 4070 Coexists with New SUPER Counterpart

Recent reports have indicated that NVIDIA has finalized the launch schedule for its GeForce RTX 40 series SUPER, which is set to debut around CES 2024 at the beginning of next year. This latest release, based on the Ada Lovelace architecture, will introduce three models: the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER, GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, and GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER. Of these, the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Ti have ceased production, with current stock expected to be depleted by December, paving the way for the RTX 4080 SUPER and RTX 4070 Ti SUPER to take their place.


According to the statement by boardchannels, despite the discontinuation of the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Ti, the RTX 4070 will not be affected and will coexist in the market with the newly released GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER. However, with the arrival of the RTX 4070 SUPER, NVIDIA is likely to shift its focus more towards the new products, although the RTX 4070 is anticipated to remain available for a considerably longer duration.

The primary reason for the distinct treatment of the RTX 4070 is its lower specifications and pricing. If the RTX 4070 were to be discontinued, it would create a significant gap between the RTX 4060 Ti and RTX 4070 SUPER. Moreover, NVIDIA would be left with only one 12GB memory product in its lineup, making the retention of the RTX 4070 a more logical decision.

The GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER is equipped with either an AD104-350 or AD103-175, featuring an increase in L2 cache from the current 36MB of the RTX 4070 to 48MB. The number of CUDA cores will also rise from 5888 to 7168, a substantial increase of approximately 21.7%. The memory capacity will remain at 12GB. The PCB is designated as PG141-SKU335, and the total power consumption of the card is expected to increase slightly by 20W to 220W. The performance improvement is estimated to be around 14%, closely aligning with the current RTX 4070 Ti.
