Love the existing GeForce RTX 40 Series, but hate the "SUPER" name? Better get shopping, then, as the latest rumors suggest that some of NVIDIA's current, standard models will be gone sooner than expected.
The cat has been out of the bag for weeks now that NVIDIA is reportedly planning a GeForce RTX 40 series refresh but there could be more changes happening. According to a post from Board Channels (via VideoCardz), NVIDIA is reportedly halting mass production of its GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4080 graphics cards. The post also states that the final shipments of these cards, from NVIDIA to its partners, have been made and the add-in-card partners are now awaiting the first batch of the SUPER series cards. At this point, for both, it appears the focus is moving old inventory in order to make room the next round of graphics cards.
NVIDIA is readying SUPER versions of its GeForce RTX 4080, GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, and GeForce RTX 4070 desktop GPUs, and something that users should expect to see on their spec sheets are familiar TGPs. That's the latest word from kopite7kimi, who added to the rumor pile today with the claim that NVIDIA's new SUPER GPUs will have the same power consumption as the company's current, non-SUPER models. If true, this would mean that the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER will feature a TGP of 320 watts, while the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER will feature a TGP of 285 watts and 200 watts, respectively. kopite7kimi shared the supposed core counts for the GeForce RTX 40 SUPER Series over the weekend, including what is claimed to be 10,240 CUDA Cores for the GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER (vs. 9,728). The leaker also suggests that the Ti SUPER branding isn't happening.
ASUS has updated its catalog of GeForce RTX 40 Series graphic cards with the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti White OC Edition, a variant of the existing model that, as the name might suggest, comes with a shroud and three axial-tech fans in white rather than the usual black. According to a list of key features that ASUS shared, this new GPU is largely identical to the standard model, capable of boosting up to 2,760 MHz in OC mode, 150 MHz higher than NVIDIA's reference. ASUS hasn't confirmed its pricing yet, but the TUF Gaming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti OC Edition, which ASUS introduced back in January, is currently going for $859.99 at retailers that include Newegg.
Which branding does NVIDIA like better, Ti, or SUPER? New rumors that have hit the web today would suggest that the company can't really decide, as hongkongxing2020, an account that has been said to have a decent record of hardware leaks, has claimed that the company is preparing new GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER and GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER graphics cards, with one model going so far as to combine both brandings. This particular model will supposedly be the GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER Ti, according to the aforementioned leaker. NVIDIA first introduced the SUPER branding as part of its GeForce RTX 20 Series in 2019, but the naming failed to make its way to the Ampere generation.
For your consideration, we have the MSI GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPRIM X 12G video card (912-V513-078). The SUPRIM version from MSI represents their top-of-the-line in any given video card and is generally chocked full of...
GIGABYTE has introduced two new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti water-cooled graphics cards in the form of the AORUS GeForce RTX 4070 Ti XTREME WATERFORCE 12G and AORUS GeForce RTX 4070 Ti XTREME WATERFORCE WB 12G. They feature RGB Fusion, a protection metal backplate, aerospace-grade PCB coating for dust and moisture protection, Ultra-Durable top-grade components, and extended warranty for registered members, and they're also certified by GIGABYTE's GPU Gauntlet sorting technology, which "guarantees the higher overclocking capability in terms of excellent power switching," according to the company.
Igor's Lab has shared a set of benchmarks that demonstrate how the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT might perform versus its siblings and NVIDIA's GeForce RTX GPUs when it inevitably releases. According to the benchmarks, which are simulated, the Radeon RX 7800 XT will deliver a level of performance that sits between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and Radeon RX 6800 XT in the realm of 4K, offering greater frame rates than the GeForce RTX 4070. "Sim." (red bar) corresponds to "the benchmarked Radeon Pro W7800 with half the memory," while "calc." (yellow bar) was "extrapolated based on the efficiency of an RX 7900XT (Watts per FPS), which yields quite plausible results," author Igor Wallossek explained.
ASUS has announced that it will be releasing its first GeForce graphics cards under the ProArt brand in the form of the ProArt GeForce RTX 4080 and ProArt GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. Designed for creators (and/or those who would prefer a cleaner aesthetic), the ProArt GeForce RTX 4080 and ProArt GeForce RTX 4070 Ti are described by ASUS as being compact and powerful graphics cards designed for professional workstation production, featuring a 2.5-slot footprint for compability with a wide variety of cases, axial-tech fans with dual ball bearings for increased durability, GPU Tweak III for optimizing system performance and cooling, and support for NVIDIA Studio drivers. Neither of these graphics cards appear to have gone up on ASUS' official site yet.

Thermaltake has announced two new pre-built high-performance gaming PCs to its LCGS (Liquid Cooling Gaming System) product line in the form of the Avalanche i477T and Quartz 360T. The Avalanche i477T is equipped with a 13th Gen Intel Core i7-13700KF CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti GPU, while the Quartz 360T features an AMD Ryzen 7 7000 Series CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. These pre-built systems are now available at Best Buy, where they've been listed for $2,299.99 and $1,699.99, respectively.
Interest in AMD GPUs appears to be gaining in at least some parts of the world. According to data shared by TechEpiphany, AMD managed outsell NVIDIA last week at Mindfactory, one of Germany's top electronics retailers, with 2,110 GPUs sold versus green team's 1,690. Leading the pack was the Radeon RX 7900 XT, AMD's second-most-advanced RDNA 3 graphics card for gamers, which sold 430 units, followed by NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4070 Ti with 370 units. AMD's sales are said to be driven by the discounts that the GPUs have received as of late, while Intel critics are pointing out that the Arc A750 only sold 10 units. The numbers for the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti would also indicate that plenty are willing to pay for the GPU despite its $799 starting price, which some have claimed to be too high.
