Colorful GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER BattleAx 16 GB Graphics Card Review: More VRAM, Same Price

It’s been over a year since NVIDIA introduced its Ada Lovelace GPUs, kicking things off with the RTX 4090 and finishing up the initial lineup with the RTX 4060. At CES, the company unveiled its new 40 SUPER family, designed to offer a mid-cycle upgrade over the existing cards. The company officially adds more performance by increasing the core counts, offering more VRAM across certain variants, and increasing the performance per dollar value of its Ada family.

Today, NVIDIA is releasing the second card within its “SUPER” portfolio, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER. The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER graphics card is designed for high-fidelity & high refresh rate 1440p gaming and the addition of 16 GB VRAM should ensure a very playable 4K experience too. The graphics card is priced at $799 US at MSRP.

The pricing is the same as what the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Non-SUPER GPU launched for but that variant has now been completely replaced by the 4070 Ti SUPER. The 4070 Ti SUPER GPU is a big upgrade when it comes to VRAM which is now on par with the RTX 4080 and soon-to-release RTX 4080 SUPER. Will the card stack up against the competitor RX 7900 XT with its upgraded core and VRAM? Let’s find out.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 SUPER Gaming Graphics Cards

Turing wasn’t just any graphics core, it was the graphics core that was to become the foundation of future GPUs. The future is realized now with next-generation consoles going deep in talks about ray tracing and AI-assisted super-sampling techniques. NVIDIA had a head start with Turing & Ampere and its Ada generation will only do things infinitely times better.

The Ada GPU does many traditional things which we would expect from a GPU, but at the same time, also breaks the barrier when it comes to untraditional GPU operations. Just to sum up some features:

  • New Streaming Multiprocessor (SM)
  • New Turing Tensor Cores
  • New Real-Time Ray Tracing Acceleration
  • New Shading Enhancements
  • New Deep Learning Features For Graphics & Inference
  • New GDDR6X High-Performance Memory Subsystem
  • New HDMI 2.1 Display Engine & Next-Gen NVENC/NVDEC

The technologies mentioned above are some of the main building blocks of the Ada GPU, but there’s more within the graphics core itself which we will talk about in detail so let’s get started.
