Architectural Differences

  1. Clock Speed: The RTX 4070 Ti Super has a base clock of 2340MHz, noticeably higher than the RTX 4080’s base clock of 2205MHz. The new card takes the cake in terms of boost clock, too, with a clock speed of 2610MHz against the RTX 4080’s 2505MHz.
  2. Cuda CoresThough both graphics cards use the AD103 chip, the much more cut-down version of the RTX 4070 Ti Super has 15% fewer Cuda Cores than the RTX 4080, which should translate into gaming performance linearly.
  3. RT & Tensor CoresThe RTX 4080 brings a boost in RT and tensor cores along with its boost of Cuda cores, making the performance of this card that much more promising. It has 15% more RT cores and 15% more tensor cores.
  4. TDP: The RTX 4080 has a higher 320-watt TDP, while the RTX 4070 Ti Super is rated for a TDP of 285 watts.

By using the same GPU die for their RTX 4070 Ti Super as the RTX 4080, Nvidia might be eating into the user demographic of the latter card, giving users a more budget option to enjoy 4k gaming.

Difference50%25%

For most people, the price of both of these cards is very excessive. Though the RTX 4070 Ti Super is substantially cheaper than the RTX 4080, it is nowhere near a bargain in itself. Both cards are nearly impossible to find below the current MSRP as of late February 2024.


Our Conclusion

RTX 4070 Ti Super: The RTX 4070 Ti, originally planned as an RTX 4080 with reduced VRAM, falls short of the RTX 4080’s performance, especially at higher resolutions. Tailored for optimal 1440p performance, it serves a distinct audience. Testing has highlighted limitations in higher resolutions. 

RTX 4080: For 4K gaming, the RTX 4080 excels with ample VRAM for longevity. While the price is steep if top-tier performance is paramount and budget permits, the RTX 4080 is a worthwhile investment

To conclude, the difference between choosing the RTX 4070 Ti Super vs RTX 4080 boils down to the resolution you want to game at and your budget. The RTX 4070 Ti Super does give you a bit more performance for your dollar, but at the high end, diminishing costs are a given.
