Exploring the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Super: 5 Essential Findings from Tests

A mere week after unveiling the GeForce RTX 4070 Super at CES 2024, Nvidia’s $599 graphics card is already primed to launch. Review embargoes lifted for Nvidia’s new 1440p champion this morning ahead of a full release tomorrow morning. The biggest change to the GeForce RTX 4070 Super is the infusion of a whopping 20 percent more CUDA, ray tracing, and tensor cores in this new model, all at the same price as its vanilla namesake. Unsurprisingly, this results in a big boost in gaming performance. All these extra cores also push the RTX 4070 Super’s ray tracing prowess to new heights, making it the undisputed ray tracing champ. The GeForce RTX 4070 Super has its “total graphics power” rating bumped to 220 watts, 20W more than the vanilla 4070. It still comes with 12GB of memory over a 192-bit bus, making it great for 1440p gaming, but lighter than you’d want for 4K. The OG 4070 is sticking around, but at a lower $549 price point.
