Nvidia RTX 4080 Ti or RTX 4080 Super: What to Expect from the Upcoming Graphics Cards
Change is on the horizon for NVIDIA’s RTX 40 Series graphics cards. Recent rumors suggest that the company is planning to release refreshed variants under the ‘Super’ branding. Let’s take a closer look at what we can expect from the rumored RTX 4080 and 4070 GPUs getting a ‘Super’ refresh.
Nvidia Reportedly Planning To Launch ‘Super’ Variant Of RTX 40 Series GPUs
According to a credible hardware leaker known as Hongxing2020, the RTX 40 Series lineup might see the arrival of three new graphics cards: RTX 4080, RTX 4070, and RTX 4070 Ti. The leaker hinted at the possibility of these GPUs getting a refreshed ‘Super’ variant soon.

While there is no concrete information about the specifications, we can speculate on possible upgrades for the RTX 40 Series ‘Super’ variants. These upgrades might include increased VRAM capacity, higher clock speeds, improved memory bandwidth, and a higher TGP (total graphics power).
Speculated specifications of the ‘Super’ variants:
|RTX 4070 Super||12GB GDDR6X|
|RTX 4080 Super||20GB GDDR6X|
|RTX 4070 Ti Super||16GB GDDR6X|
As of now, there is no specific release date mentioned in the leaks. However, considering the previous rumors about an RTX 4080 Super or 4080 Ti arriving in 2024, it is possible that these ‘Super’ variants will be launched next year.
Take the Leak with a Grain of Salt
Although these leaks have generated excitement, it’s important to approach them with caution. There are a few reasons to question the authenticity of the rumor. NVIDIA previously used the ‘Super’ branding for the RTX 20 Series but reportedly canceled it for the RTX 30 Series. Additionally, combining the ‘Ti’ suffix with the ‘Super’ suffix is unconventional for NVIDIA. The potential model name, ‘RTX 4070 Ti Super,’ sounds unusual.
Nevertheless, it is still early in the stage of RTX 40 Series ‘Refresh’ variant leaks. NVIDIA might introduce new ‘Ti’ variants, adjust VRAM capacities, or launch entirely new RTX 40 Series GPUs with the ‘Super’ branding. The forthcoming release of the RTX 50 Series is also something to look forward to. We will keep you informed about any developments from NVIDIA, so stay tuned!
