Nvidia is said to be working on a refresh of the RTX 4080, RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4070 as super models. This will allow the manufacturer to wait until 2024 for the next generation of graphics cards, which will not arrive until 2025.
Known for hardware leaks Twitter-account hongxing2020 The social media platform announced that Nvidia will be bringing back its Supermodels. According to the website Videocards hongxing2020 has often been right with hardware rumors in the past. at least Three super graphics cards Said to be in development: RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super and RTX 4070 Super. However, it should be noted that the leaked account once predicted an RTX 3090 Super, which never materialized.
Not the first rumor about an RTX 4000 refresh
Nvidia hasn’t released a super model since the RTX 2000 series. Instead there were more TI models. In early October, however, another leaked account on Twitter reported one New RTX 4080 for 2024, which will be marketed as either the TI model or the S model (Super). It is supposedly based on the RTX 4090 (test) to AD102 GPU and should end up in the same price range as the RTX 4080 (RRP: 1,329 euros) with a power consumption of less than 450 watts. The regular RTX 4080’s power consumption is 320 watts, the RTX 4090’s 450 watts.
Nothing more is known about the alleged supermodel of the Ada Lovelace generation. The main question is how the super versions of the RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 Ti (test) can differentiate themselves from the previous models without overshadowing the RTX 4080 and at the same time being attractive to interested parties. The performance of the RTX 4070 Ti is currently about 20 percent behind the RTX 4080. The same gap is roughly between the RTX 4070 and 4070 Ti. Additionally, there has never been a “Ti Super” model from Nvidia until now.
Supermodel as gap filler until RTX 5000?
It is difficult to tell whether there is any truth to the rumours. you should View rumors with a certain degree of skepticism, has been in the rumor mill several times as TI or a supermodel but has never appeared. As a “gap filler” for them Long wait until the RTX 5000 series (Blackwell) In 2025, new RTX 4000 graphics cards cannot be ruled out. Intel recently took a similar approach with the 14th Core i generation, the Raptor Lake refresh (test), to be able to offer “new” products, although a true Raptor Lake successor isn’t expected to appear until the second half of 2024.
