After months of rumors and leaks, Nvidia confirmed that it will unveil a new graphics card lineup soon. The post shows a video of a GeForce RTX Founders Edition graphics card hovering over the earth's horizon, depicting the date January 8th, 2024, at 8 AM Pacific time. The post effectively confirms that Nvidia will announce a new graphics card lineup at CES 2024. Lucky for us, many of the key details have already been leaked from multiple sources

These new GPUs will inevitably be the highly rumored RTX 40-series Super refresh that has been leaked online and rumored for months. Nvidia's new refresh is expected to arrive with at least three brand-new Ada Lovelace RTX 40-series GPUs: the RTX 4070 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super, and the RTX 4080 Super.

The RTX 4070 Super and RTX 4080 Super are expected to come with a noteworthy spec bump in CUDA cores over their vanilla counterparts, while the RTX 4070 Ti Super is expected to arrive with a core count jump and a big memory upgrade compared to the outgoing 4070 Ti.

The RTX 4070 Super will reportedly come with 7,168 CUDA cores, and the RTX 4080 Super will come with 10,240 CUDA cores with 24 GT/s GDDR6X memory ICs. The RTX 4070 Ti Super is reported to feature 8,448 CUDA cores, 16GB of memory capacity, a 256-bit bus, and 22.4 GT/s GDDR6X memory chips.

Of course it's worth noting that these are rumored specs. Nvidia will likely confirm all the details on January 8, and there may be a few tweaks compared to what we've heard elsewhere.

There are also rumors that Nvidia could unveil the reportedly-cancelled RTX 4090 Ti/Titan Ada as its 4th GPU under the new 40-series Super refresh, but this is not likely to happen. We've left it in the above table, more for fun that fact.

The RTX 40-series Super refresh is expected to reinvigorate the RTX 40-series by providing updated GPU configurations featuring more competitive pricing compared to the series' outgoing SKUs — similar to the RTX 20-series Super refresh. When the RTX 40-series launched, it was met with a lot of negative criticism due to sky-high GPU prices and mostly lackluster performance improvements. The relatively limited VRAM configurations and narrower interface widths didn't help.

This was particularly noteworthy in the RTX 4080 and RTX 4060 Ti, which offered incredibly poor performance per dollar at launch — and trying to pawn off the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB as a fix for the memory configurations didn't help. No doubt this is at least part of why Nvidia decided to green-light mid-cycle refresh in the first place.

There is no guarantee that the RTX 40-series Super refresh will fix the current lineup's pricing issues outright, but it should at least freshen up the market with some competitive GPUs. Either way, we will know soon enough how competitive Nvidia's RTX 40-series Super GPUs will be, with all three cards expected to launch this month, staggered at one week intervals.

    Yay, more disappointment incoming!

    the interesting thing after the launch would be how the prices of 4060ti and 4070 be adjusted with the 4070 super.

    I don't game much anymore. I just want a good consumer GenAI card for a good price. Nvidia, are you listening?

    I doubt we'll see any discount what-so-ever because there's little to no leftover 4070/4070Ti stock to dump.

    More overpriced and disappointing stuff from Nvidia, yay! /s

    Yeah, I am still just not interested in a 4080 Super for $999. I am not really interested in the 4070 Ti Super or 4070 Super either. I'll just have to wait for next gen at this point.

    4070 TiS might be interesting if it performs close to the outgoing 4080 at $799. If priced more than that, it will still be a rough sell. 4080S is still too expensive at $999, with the 4070S having the same issue at $599
