Two sooner GPUs, one higher deal

For the discerning gamer who did not rush out to seize NVIDIA’s RTX 40-series GPUs over the previous couple of years, the corporate’s new Tremendous playing cards are genuinely compelling. All of them ship much more energy than earlier than — a lot in order that the $599 RTX 4070 Tremendous is definitely a good 4K gaming card. However the $999 RTX 4080 Tremendous can be a strong deal for power-hungry avid gamers, because it’s $200 lower than the unique 4080. Between these two playing cards, NVIDIA now has fascinating improve choices for mid-range and high-end avid gamers.

However what of the brand new RTX 4070 Ti? It is caught proper between its two siblings, with no clear viewers. In any case, in case you’re able to spend $799 on a video card, stretching a bit extra for the 4080 Tremendous may make extra sense for the extra energy. In any other case, you may as nicely simply get the 4070 Tremendous, overclock it a bit, and spend the additional $200 on one other SSD or extra RAM. It is a conundrum solely of NVIDIA’s making, one which may have been solved by giving the 4070 Ti Tremendous a slight $50 low cost. (And it is much more complicated when some playing cards, just like the ASUS mannequin we reviewed, are priced above MSRP.)


The RTX 4070 Ti Tremendous is quicker than the unique 4070 Ti, but it surely’s now in a complicated place between the $599 4070 Tremendous and $999 4080 Tremendous.


  • Glorious 1440p and 4K efficiency
  • Quicker than the 4070 Ti
  • Cool temperatures

  • Worth hasn’t budged from $799

Similar to the 4070 Tremendous, the 4070 Ti Tremendous and 4080 Tremendous function extra CUDA cores than the unique fashions, in addition to barely greater clock speeds. The 4070 Ti Tremendous packs in 8,448 CUDA cores in comparison with 7,680 on the 4070 Ti, whereas the 4080 Tremendous has 10,240 CUDA cores as a substitute of 9,728. The 4070 Ti Tremendous additionally has 4GB extra VRAM, bringing it as much as 16GB of GDD6X reminiscence, whereas the 4080 Tremendous sticks with 16GB. (NVIDIA doubtless does not wish to edge a lot nearer to the beastly RTX 4090, which is now promoting for lots of greater than its authentic $1,599 launch value.)


The 4080 Tremendous is a strong worth for high-end gaming, because it’s each sooner and $200 lower than its predecessor.


  • Glorious 4K and 1,440p efficiency
  • Cool efficiency with quiet followers, Cool efficiency with quiet followers

  • Nonetheless far costlier than earlier high-end playing cards

Given the RAM bump, I anticipated the RTX 4070 Ti Tremendous to be far sooner than the 4070 Ti, but it surely ended up scoring solely 742 factors greater within the 3DMark TimeSpy Excessive benchmark. It fares higher on video games, scoring 15fps greater in each Halo Infinite (104fps) and Cyberpunk 2077 (93fps) whereas enjoying in 4K with maxed out graphics and ray tracing settings. The 4080 Tremendous’s outcomes have been equally muted: It hit 289 extra factors than the 4080 in TimeSpy Excessive, and it was 10fps greater in Cyberpunk (103fps) whereas enjoying in 4K with ray tracing.

Content material creators may even respect the extra horsepower. The 4070 Ti Tremendous scored 87,707 factors within the Luxmark HDR benchmark and seven,424 factors in Blender’s take a look at, in comparison with 75,997 and seven,247 on the 4070 Ti tremendous. The 4080 Tremendous hit 99,515 factors in Luxmark HDR in comparison with 94,832 factors from earlier than.

These are the outcomes you’d count on by merely throwing extra CUDA cores into these playing cards, so I am not precisely upset. However after benchmarking each GPUs and evaluating their outcomes to the 4070 Tremendous, I am extra underwhelmed by the 4070 Ti Tremendous. I can perceive NVIDIA not eager to make it a lot sooner, but it surely severely must be cheaper than the unique 4070 Ti. In any other case, like I stated, the 4070 Tremendous is much extra compelling, and I would not be stunned if cheaper 4070 Ti playing cards pop up.

NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti Super and 4080 Super

We reviewed the ASUS TUF Gaming 4070 Ti Super (which is at the moment promoting for $850), in addition to NVIDIA’s Founders Version 4080 Tremendous. The ASUS GPU sports activities three followers and a typical heatsink design, whereas NVIDIA’s card as soon as once more makes use of its distinctive (and really efficient) vapor chamber cooling setup. Each playing cards hovered round 75 Celsius underneath load, however the ASUS GPU was noticeably louder due to these three giant followers. I may nonetheless hear the 4080 Tremendous spin up underneath stress, but it surely wasn’t almost as loud.

Should you can’t inform by now, the most important promoting level of the 4080 Tremendous is that it is $200 lower than the unique. Not solely is it a greater deal by itself, however its cheaper price ought to (hopefully) assist to scale back the price of older 4080 playing cards ultimately too. And in case you’re not able to shell out $999 for a video card, then the $599 4070 Tremendous isn’t any slouch both.
