Tech giant NVIDIA has announced the international launch of its highly anticipated GeForce RTX 4070 Super. With a recommended retail price of $599, the graphics card is now also available in Russia. However, the cost is substantially higher there compared to the international price. It will share the market with the original GeForce RTX 4070, which has officially dropped in price from $599 to $549.

The GeForce RTX 4070 Super is based on the AD104-350 graphic processor and boasts 7168 CUDA cores – 1280 more than the original RTX 4070. It comes with the same 12GB GDDR6X memory, running at a speed of 21 Gbps, and supports a 192-bit bus with a bandwidth of 504 GB/s.

The GeForce RTX 4070 Super power consumption is 220W, which is 20W more than the original RTX 4070. The manufacturer sets the maximum power limit for a reference sample at 240W.
Initial tests show that the new GeForce RTX 4070 Super performs up to 16% better than the original RTX 4070, with results fluctuating based on the game in question.
