New information about the Nvidia Super GPU has appeared on the web, a few days before CES 2024

Leaks of new information Nvidia Super GPU have become very frequent in the last few days, and all before the next CES 2024 fair in Las Vegas. The slow trickle of information has been steady for the past few months, leaving very little detail about the cards when they are finally released, and the new information just closed the circle.

We're talking about RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 The Super and RTX 4070 Super cards, which will be the first three models of the Nvidia Super GPU line. Thanks to various retail outlets and distributors around the world, we already have a significant amount of information about the upcoming cards. The information may not be perfect, but it gives a pretty clear picture of what these cards will look like.

The RTX 4080 Super is expected to see a modest speed bump to 23Gbps for its 16GB GDDR6X memory. This will result in a 2.6% increase in bandwidth, reaching 736GB/s over a 256-bit memory bus. On the other hand, the RTX 4070Ti/4070 Super will still use a memory speed of 21Gbps.

An Nvidia Super GPU will consume almost the same as a Non-Super GPU

Clock speeds will also see slight adjustments, with the RTX 4080 Super going from 2205/2505 MHz (base/boost) to 2295/2550 MHz compared to the non-Super version. The RTX 4070 Ti Super and RTX 4070 Super are expected to retain identical speed increases over the original models (2610 MHz and 2475 MHz). There is only a minor change in the base clocks, now registered at 2340MHz and 1980MHz.

The power consumption specifications or TDP are said to be 320W for the RTX 4080 Super, 285W for the RTX 4070Ti Super and 220W for the RTX 4070 Super. Basically, only the RTX 4070 Super will experience a small increase of 20W in power consumption. The 12VHPWR connector makes an appearance again, but unfortunately, none of the leaked custom models use standard connectors, which means Nvidia may be forcing partners to use high-power connectors. VideoCardz.

All of the above Nvidia Super GPU specs are based on leaks and speculation, so things may change at the last minute or be incorrect.

Note that various GPU models from popular partner companies including Asus, Gigabyte and MSI have been spotted online. MSI plans to introduce at least 12 new models, four from each SKU. There was also a recent Asus RTX 4070 Super Dual OC Edition leak spotted by @momomo_us on X/Twitter.

Recently, Aorus (Gigabyte's gaming division) also released teasers for the upcoming GPU that will be shown at CES. While we can't decipher which GPU it is in the teaser image, it appears similar to Gigabyte's Aorus Master series with ‘Windforce bionic shark' fans and an RGB ring around each valve.

The teaser comes just a day after an EEC filing revealed the entire inventory of Gigabyte's upcoming GeForce RTX 40 Nvidia Super GPUs. The company is expected to invest at least 10 RTX 4080 Super, 11 GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super and 12 GeForce RTX 4070 Super cards.

Nvidia has scheduled a special presentation for January 8, and while the call doesn't specify what will be announced, it's pretty clear what's coming.

Judging by various hints over the past few months, the Nvidia Super GPU series, ie. The RTX 40 Super will arrive in January 2024. While this may be disappointing for enthusiasts who were hoping for an early release of the RTX 50 series, this is good news for those who made the wise decision not to buy the RTX 40 series of GPUs. It's also interesting because we haven't seen Super Refresh since the RTX 20 series.

Of course, performance is still key, and that's all that's left to learn about these new cards. Nvidia will likely release some performance data, but we won't know exactly how powerful the next-generation Nvidia Super GPU cards are until independent testing results come out. Or they arrive at our test, what not.
