Recent tweets from established insider @momomo_us reveal images of Gigabyte’s upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Super series video cards. Additional renderings have also been found on the internet showing accelerators from the same series by Inno3D.
Gigabyte Prepares for GeForce RTX 40 Super Series Release
Based on available data, Gigabyte is planning to launch the future GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super and RTX 4080 Super cards as part of the AORUS Master series. Leaks have given us a glimpse of what these video cards might look like. It appears Gigabyte will continue with a 3.5-slot construction for these accelerators.
Features of GeForce RTX 4080 Super and RTX 4070 Ti Super
The future GeForce RTX 4080 Super is expected to feature a chip with 10,240 CUDA cores and 16 GB of GDDR6X video memory, operating at speeds up to 23 Gbit/s – the highest in the RTX 40 series. A GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super is tagged to debut at the same time, with 8,448 CUDA cores and the same 16 GB of GDDR6X video memory, though running at a slightly slower speed of 21 Gbit/s. Both cards will replace their non-Super counterparts while maintaining the same level of power consumption – 320 watts for the RTX 4080 Super and 285 watts for the RTX 4070 Ti Super.
Release of Aero Models and Design Specifications
Gigabyte is planning to release Aero versions of each new model, which consumers preferring white components should welcome. Both RTX 4070 Super Aero and RTX 4070 Ti Super Aero appear to have a 3-slot construction. Unlike these, RTX 4080 Super Aero is expected to maintain its non-Super counterpart’s design and dimensions – 32cm in length and 7.5cm in height.
New WindForce and Gaming Series Cards
For consumers looking for more budget-friendly alternatives, Gigabyte will be releasing the RTX 4080 Super in both WindForce and Gaming series. The WindForce series accelerator will likely be a budget-friendly option and is speculated to be priced at the NVIDIA-recommended retail price levels. The Gaming version is intended for consumers who want a visually appealing design, featuring ARGB backlighting around the fans, and could be a diverse option for those looking beyond the standard black design, especially for accelerators costing around $1000.
Possible Release of Budget-Friendly Eagle Ice Line
Earlier leaks suggest that Gigabyte may release the Eagle Ice line, featuring a fresh, white design making it suitable for budget video cards. However, further information about these accelerators is not currently available, which could indicate a later launch.
Inno3D’s Plan for GeForce RTX 4070 Super iChill X3
Another manufacturer, Inno3D, is preparing to release the GeForce RTX 4070 Super iChill X3, featuring a design upgrade compared to its predecessor, which is due to debut next week. The update will extend to the Twin X3 and X2 series as well.
NVIDIA’s Anticipated Announcement
In related news, NVIDIA is poised to announce its new GeForce RTX 40 Super video card series next week. The release schedule appears to be the RTX 4070 Super on January 17, followed by the RTX 4070 Ti Super on January 24, and the RTX 4080 Super on January 31. The cost of these new accelerators remains undetermined.
