Key Takeaways
  • Our performance testing at 1440p showed the RTX 4070 Ti to be around 7% faster on average than the RTX 4070 Super. For a product half a tier below the RTX 4070 Ti, the RTX 4070 Super catches up nicely.
  • The RTX 4070 Super managed to consume 15% less power than the RTX 4070 Ti in our testing, improving the already excellent power consumption of the 40 series moving forward. 
  • As of early February 2024, the RTX 4070 Ti costs at least $130 more than the RTX 4070 Super if you plan to buy both cards new.
  • The RTX 4070 Super builds up on the formula of the rest of the RTX 40 series of cards nicely while putting a relatively fair price tag on itself. The RTX 4070 Super makes much more sense to purchase than the RTX 4070 Ti.

Architectural Difference

  1. Clock Speed: The RTX 4070 Ti outshines its newer sibling with higher base and boost clocks, hitting 2310MHz and 2610MHz, respectively, compared to the RTX 4070 Super’s 1980MHz and 2475MHz.
  2. TDP: The newer card has a lower TDP of 220W, whereas the RTX 4070 Ti has a higher TDP of around 285 watts. This comes with an uplift in the power of the suggested PSU recommendations of both processors as well.
  3. VRAM: Both cards have the same memory configuration, 12GB of GDDR6X memory over a frustratingly narrow 192-bit bus.
  4. RT Cores: The RTX 4070 Ti has a few more RT cores than the RTX 4070 Super, which, along with its higher Cuda core count and clock speeds, promise better ray tracing performance, though that is to be seen in our gaming tests.

After the underwhelming RTX 20 series, Nvidia introduced Super variants for improved performance and value. This trend continues with the lackluster RTX 40XX series. How do the Super versions stack up against the Ti variants? Keep reading the RTX 4070 Super vs RTX 4070 Ti comparison to find out!

The RTX 4070 Ti outpaced the newer RTX 4070 Super by around 6.9% in average framerate, potentially noticeable depending on the game’s performance. Adjusting settings on the RTX 4070 Super can match the Ti variant’s performance. The 1% lows showed a close 6.8% difference between the two.


Editor`s Note
Image

Both the RTX 4070 Ti and the RTX 4070 Super only support DisplayPort 1.4a, which is capable of doing a 4K video output at 120Hz. AMD’s newer Radeon cards support the more modern DP 2.1 standard.

Somehow, Nvidia managed to improve on the already excellent power efficiency of the RTX 4070 Ti with the RTX 4070 Super. The older card had substantially lower power consumption overall by around 15% than the RTX 4070 Ti, which can make a noticeable difference in the amount you’ve paid in power bills over the years.

Difference33%38%

Nvidia has dropped the MSRP of the RTX 4070 Ti from $799 to $749 with the release of the Super cards, but this does not help its value proposition at all. Some variants of the RTX 4070 Ti have started to appear for even less, like the MSI Ventus OC, but the price difference of these cards still remains vastly different from each other.


What We Recommend

RTX 4070 Ti: The RTX 3070 Ti entered the market with a steep $300 MSRP increase, launching at $499 compared to its predecessor’s $799. Despite a modest performance boost, this significant price hike deterred many potential buyers. Even today, the RTX 4070 Ti offers marginal performance gains over the RTX 4070 Super at a considerably higher cost. 

RTX 4070 Super: The RTX 4070 Super is Nvidia’s best value card, potentially capitalizing on the less favourable value propositions of the RTX 40 series. It delivers similar performance, lower power draw, and a more reasonable price to the 4070 Super. Despite the seemingly unfair comparison, our recommendation strongly favours the newer card.

To cap this comparison off, there is very little reason to purchase the RTX 4070 Ti over the RTX 4070 Super because of its bad price-to-performance ratio together with the RTX 4070 Super, almost matching it in terms of performance.
