In the realm of graphics cards, the latest leak about Nvidia's RTX 4070 Ti Super has us buzzing with excitement. These benchmarks reveal that this new GPU is nipping at the heels of its predecessor, the RTX 4080. It's quite a feat for a graphics card that's expected to launch at a price of just $799. However, let's not forget that the RTX 4080 was outrageously overpriced when it first hit the market.
Like its predecessor, the RTX 4070 Ti Super boasts a whopping 16GB of VRAM, leaving the original RTX 4070 Ti's 12GB in the dust. Not only that, this new Nvidia GPU also flexes more CUDA cores, RT cores, and Tensor cores, making it a serious contender for our best graphics card guide, especially at the enticing price point of $799.
Thanks to a set of benchmark results that surfaced in the Geekbench browser, we can now catch a glimpse of the RTX 4070 Ti Super's performance. Now, this benchmark focuses on synthetic compute tasks rather than gaming, so don't expect to see frame rates from your favorite games just yet. However, it does provide a clue about how the RTX 4070 Ti Super stacks up against other Nvidia GPUs in terms of overall performance.
The benchmark was conducted on a system powered by an Intel Core i9-14900K and 32GB of 7,200MHz DDR5 memory. Clocking in at 2,640MHz, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super put on quite a show. In the OpenCL test, the system scored an impressive 229,043, marking a 10.8% improvement over the average score of the original RTX 4070 Ti. Surprisingly, there's only a 4.8% difference between this score and the average score of the RTX 4080, which stood at 240,076.
Now, let's talk Vulkan. Two results were recorded: 192,032 and 222,435. The latter is a jaw-dropping score, indicating that the GPU was likely overclocked to achieve such a feat. For the sake of comparison, the average result for the RTX 4080 was 208,667, making the lower result of the RTX 4070 Ti Super 8.8% faster than the original RTX 4070 Ti. Stepping up to the RTX 4080, we see a similar increase of 8.7%.
Of course, we can't directly translate these results into gaming frame rates just yet. You'll have to wait for our comprehensive RTX 4070 Ti Super review next week to get the full scoop. However, in terms of raw shader performance, it seems that the RTX 4070 Ti Super will be giving the RTX 4080 a run for its money, and that's fantastic news for gamers everywhere. Finally, we can attain this level of performance without breaking the bank!
