NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 GPU Specs Rumor: 4080 SUPER AD103, 4070 Ti SUPER AD102/AD103 & 4070 SUPER AD103/104
There have been continued uscasummer rumors surrounding the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 “SUPER” GPUs and the latest one from Kopite7kimi talks about the possible specifications of the three cards. Once again, these specifications can change and Kopite7kimi himself states that the specs are “several weeks” old. NVIDIA is known to test various configurations before finalizing one. The same is true for the naming scheme and the pricing which isn’t finalized until the very last moment. With that said, let’s talk about the GPUs.
Well, if everything you said OK, we will see:
RTX 4080 Super, AD103-400, 10240FP32;
RTX 4070 Ti Super, AD103-275 or AD102-175, 8448FP32, 48M L2;
RTX 4070 Super, AD104-350 or AD103-175, 7168FP32, 48M L2.
I still doubt with them, especially the Ti Super. I cannot fully agree.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER Specifications (Rumored)
Starting at the top, we have the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER which is rumored to use the AD103-400 GPU with the full 10,240 cores, 320 TMUs, 112 ROPs, and 64 MB of L2 cache. The chip will use a 256-bit bus interface which would suggest a 16 GB GDDR6X memory, same as the RTX 4080 Non-SUPER. So that suggests that NVIDIA has both 20 GB (AD102 / 320-bit) and 16 GB (AD103 / 256-bit) SKUs but what makes it to retail remains to be seen.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER Specifications (Rumored)
Next up, we have the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER which Kopite7kimi believes is a really weird naming choice and to be honest, it kind of is. But as for the specifications, the card is said to feature AD103-275 / AD102-175 GPU SKUs with the same 8,448 cores across both variants and 48 MB of L2 cache.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER Specifications (Rumored)
Lastly, there’s the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER which is said to come in AD104-350 or AD103-175 SKU configurations with the same 7,168 cores across both variants. The GPU is expected to get 48 MB of L2 cache. It looks like this card would stick with the 12 GB GDDR6X memory though we can expect NVIDIA to push the memory speeds up using better Micron DRAM which can reduce the stress on the lower 192-bit bus interface. So to sum things up, the following is the core count bump as suggested by the rumor:
- RTX 4080 SUPER vs RTX 4080 Core Count = +5% Increase (10240 vs 9728)
- RTX 4070 Ti SUPER vs RTX 4070 Ti Core Count = +10% Increase (8448 vs 7680)
- RTX 4070 SUPER vs RTX 4070 Core Count = +22% Increase (7168 vs 5888)
Based on these, it looks like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER would be the biggest upgrade and that might be due to the fact that the green team might be considering the AMD RX 7800 XT as true competition in this segment. The 4070 Ti SUPER is suggested to get a 10% increase in cores and the RTX 4080 SUPER might be the smallest upgrade with a 5% core count bump. This means that an RTX 4080 Ti can still be added to the lineup.
Once again, Kopite7kimi isn’t displaying a lot of confidence in these specifications and since we are still a good few months away from a possible launch (2024), a lot can change so it’s wise to take all of these with a grain of salt.
