NVIDIA isn’t shy about the raw power these cards wield. The RTX 4080 Super, arriving January 31st for $999, boasts a significant speed boost over its predecessor, claiming to be twice as fast in games when you factor in the magic touch of DLSS 3 Frame Generation. This advanced AI-powered technology essentially creates new frames on the fly, boosting performance without demanding extra graphical grunt from the GPU. Leaks suggest the 4080 Super packs a hefty 10,240 CUDA cores, faster clock speeds, and blazing-fast 23 Gbps memory – a potent cocktail for smooth, high-resolution gaming.

Not everyone needs the most extreme muscle, and that’s where the RTX 4070 Ti Super and 4070 Super shine. Launching on January 24th for $799 and January 17th for $599, respectively, these cards target budget-conscious gamers without sacrificing performance. The 4070 Ti Super receives a much-needed memory upgrade to 16GB, putting it on par with AMD’s offerings, while the 4070 gets a 20% core boost, promising to surpass even the mighty RTX 3090 in terms of raw speed – while consuming significantly less power.

It’s impossible to ignore the elephant in the room – DLSS 3. This revolutionary technology is a game-changer, adding significant performance jumps without sacrificing visual fidelity. While some concerns about input latency exist, NVIDIA is aggressively refining the technology, and the Super series represents a key step forward.

AMD’s Radeon 7900 series might feel the heat from these Super cards, especially at the $599 price point with the RTX 4070 Super. NVIDIA seems determined to offer competitive pricing across the spectrum, making high-end performance more accessible than ever.
