NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER Will Not Directly Replace RTX 4070, Both Models To Coexist

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER Will Not Directly Replace RTX 4070, Both Models To Coexist

In the latest rounds of the NVIDIA RTX 40 SUPER rumor mill: it was claimed that these SUPER models will eventually supersede their standard counterparts, and will replace them entirely as the original card is set to cease production. While that is true for RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Ti – both models are claimed to be making way for their SUPER variants as production ceases, the RTX 4070 SUPER will not replace the vanilla card entirely.

According to information in the Chinese web forum Board Channels (only accessible by logged-in accounts), the source claims that both RTX 4080 SUPER and RTX 4070 Ti SUPER will replace their respective standard namesake. Meanwhile, RTX 4070 SUPER “will not entirely replace the RTX 4070 series; instead, it will coexist with the RTX 4070 series for an extended period”. The post also noted that focus will be put on the SUPER variant.

One possible reason why the RTX 4070 didn’t get the cut is due to the gap that presents in the 200W to 285W segment, occupied by RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 Ti respectively. In theory, AMD could slot in a card in this region and initiate a price war if the performance is up to par, thus filling this gap with the SUPER variant accompanied by increased TGP, and by extension performance, will close up that gap for competition to strike. It’s worth noting that both AMD and Intel have no new plans for GPU releases, however.

On the contrary, RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4080’s SUPER counterparts represent a tiny spec bump that does not change the TGP rating whatsoever, so it’s entirely reasonable for NVIDIA to directly replace them with slightly updated hardware. Team Green is expected to announce these GPUs this coming CES in January 2024, as the company has booked a slot for its keynote event, though it remains unclear whether the company will go for staggered or simultaneous release of these models.

Pokdepinion: We’re around one month away if CES is indeed the announcement – so we just wait, then.
