Staking in improved core counts for better performance at no extra cost, all of the new  RTX 40 Super graphics cards from Nvidia have been massive steps ahead of their former-gen compatriots. The most recent upgraded Super card from Nvidia, the GeForce RTX 4080 Super, features a slightly altered recipe: The super success Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 Super Founders boasts of is not from the excellent performance gains but rather fantastic prices.

Although it has yet to do much in performance improvements from the original RTX 4080, the GeForce Card of RTX 4080 Super commands an exciting price range worth $999. If you want ray-tracing and the best picture quality, this is your latest pincher to spend. It collected the Editors’ Choice award from the high-end graphical cards tuned for 4K gaming.

Pros
Affordable
Outstanding ray-tracing efficiency
A little boost in general performance over original RTX 4080
Significance power draw and thermal performance

Cons
$999 is still a lot of cash.
Under load, it becomes a little hot.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 it’s the Complete AD103

As the old Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 is being replaced by at least one brand new model every year, it is essentially the same as its predecessor, with no great difference between them. When comparing the RTX 4080 Super and the vanilla RTX 4080, a more striking change, other than the specification, is the price, as you have to part with $1,199 for the RTX 408o instead of $999 for the Super. When the RTX 4080 first hit the market several months ago, its $1,199 price didn’t read out much. Nevertheless, after releasing a new graphics adapter priced at $999 from AMD, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX started making it harder to offer this graphics system card for suggestions.

This wasn’t the reason for performance – the two cards were more or less equal playing against each other on different tests and even, in some situations, swapping positions. Though one can make a case that the RTX4080 was better, especially in newer games that allow ray tracing, it did not have enough of an advantage to double up $200.

Test Competition and Configuration

Intel Core i9-12900K, Asus ROG Maximus Z690 Hero, and Corsair Hydro Series H100X water coolers made up the GPU test bed. A 1 terabyte Corsair MP600 Pro NVMe 4.0 SSD and 32 gigabytes of 5,600 MHz Corsair Vengeance RAM make up the system’s hardware. A Corsair HX1500i 1,500W 80 Plus Platinum power supply powers the entire system, guaranteeing enough juice for any graphics card we throw at it.  Michael Justin Allen Sexton and his team used Windows 11 pro for all testing.

The Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XT from AMD are two of the top rivals to Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4080 Super. Neither the pricing nor the performance of most Nvidia cards are quite comparable; for example, the RTX 4090 is too expensive to be a serious rival, and the RTX 4070 Ti Super lacks the necessary muscle. Even though they were comparing the original Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080—a competitor—this is primarily an academic exercise due to the high price tag, lack of hardware, and impending discontinuation of the product.

Wrap Up

Nvidia has created another version by bringing forth the RTX 4080 Super, which is priced at $999. Regarding the hardware, Nvidia hardly changed anything in this RTX 4080 Super version compared to the original. Yet performance was enhanced by some little detailed modifications. It’s still worth a purchase!
