NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 SUPER expected to coexist on the market

Board Channels, the website and forum managed by people in close contact with board partners, has provided another update. This platform serves as a source for early leaks and rumors regarding upcoming GPU and CPU releases. While its accuracy in specifying specs may be questionable, it maintains a good track record regarding product changes and their market availability.

The RTX 4070 isn’t subject to the same fate as the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards, which are said to be going through a gradual phase-out as mass production shifts to SUPER variants. Instead, the company plans to introduce the RTX 4070 SUPER alongside the current model, with both models remaining side by side. Although the focus will be on the RTX 4070 SUPER, the standard RTX 4070 is expected to remain on the market for an extended period.

RTX 4080 SUPER: Will replace the RTX 4080 series, indicating the discontinuation of the RTX 4080 series.

RTX 4070 Ti SUPER: Will replace the RTX 4070 Ti series, signifying the discontinuation of the RTX 4070 Ti series.

RTX 4070 SUPER: Will not entirely replace the RTX 4070 series; instead, it will coexist with the RTX 4070 series for an extended period. However, the focus will primarily be on the sales of the RTX 4070 SUPER series.

Earlier reports indicated that NVIDIA is fulfilling final orders for the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Ti, with board partners anticipating inventory clearance by year-end. However, the RTX 4070 is expected to remain unaffected, continuing its availability as usual.

The potential reason the RTX 4070 is treated differently is because it is more popular and has lower specs than the SUPER model. While other SUPER GPUs are rumored to offer a 5% to 10% increase in CUDA cores, the RTX 4070 SUPER boasts a 22% increase in cores, placing it in a different product tier. With the alleged discontinuation of the RTX 4070 Ti non-SUPER, NVIDIA would be left with only one 12GB model. Therefore, it appears reasonable for NVIDIA to maintain the original RTX 4070 in the market.

However, the complete picture is yet to unfold, with pricing standing as the most significant unanswered question. NVIDIA might adjust its product stack to lower price points or replace existing SKUs with slightly upgraded specifications. With two out of three existing models phased out, both options remain possible.

Sources indicate that NVIDIA plans to unveil the new RTX 40 SUPER models at CES. It’s unclear at this point whether all three cards will be available simultaneously or if NVIDIA will opt for a gradual rollout, evaluating the market and gamers’ reactions.
