NVIDIA’s new Super series of RTX 40 cards includes the RTX 4070 Super, the RTX 4070 Ti Super, and the RTX 4080 Super. We have already talked about the latter two so in this article let’s take a quick look at the RTX 4070 Super, its specifications, upgrades, expected price in Nepal, and availability.

NVIDIA RTX 4070 Super Overview:

Super variants of NVIDIA graphics cards are basically GPUs with slightly improved performance and sometimes added features. The RTX 4070 is no different and sees a bit of a hardware upgrade. But thanks to RTX 40 series exclusive features like DLSS 3, and Frame Gen, it still might be a worthwhile upgrade from older RTX 70 cards. 

NVIDIA RTX 4070 Super specs

Getting into the basic overview, the Nvidia RTX 4070 Super features 7168 CUDA cores, 224 texture mapping units, and 80 ROPs: all upgrades from the RTX 4070. The base and boost clock frequencies remain the same though, at 1.98GHz and 2.475 GHz respectively. Similar is the story with memory and memory bandwidth where you’ll be getting 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM with a 192-bit memory bus and a total bandwidth of around 504 GB/s. TGP gets a slight bump of 20W to 220W. So, overall speaking, you are getting more cores and computing units while the rest of the specs remain pretty similar to the non-Super card. 

Performance Gains

With all that, NVIDIA says that the 4070 Super should be up to 15% faster than its vanilla variant. It is optimal for playing games at max settings at 1440p resolution with over 100 FPS.

As such, it might be a worthwhile upgrade for those with an RTX 3070 or RTX 2070 card. It seems to offer almost double the performance (or a lot more with Frame Gen) over the older cards in the graph NVIDIA presented.

The new NVIDIA RTX 4070 Super even outperforms the previous generation RTX 3090 using a fraction of the power at 220W. (RTX 3090 operates at 350W)

Besides gaming, the extra Tensor cores (from 184 to 224) should help with Machine Learning and AI applications, and streaming should be smooth sailing as well.

NVIDIA RTX 4070 Super Price in Nepal and Availability 

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Super will be available starting January 17th with a starting price of USD 599 (same as last year’s RTX 4070). The 4070 Super will also be available in a ‘Founders’ edition directly from NVIDIA. When it makes it here, we expect the NVIDIA RTX 4070 Super price in Nepal to be somewhere around NPR 89,000.
