According to reports, Gigabyte intends to release the upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super and RTX 4080 Super cards in the AORUS Master line. Thanks to recent leaks, an idea of the appearance of these video cards has emerged.. Apparently, Gigabyte will retain the 3.5-slot design in these accelerators.

The upcoming GeForce RTX 4080 Super will likely have a chip with 10,240 CUDA cores and 16 GB of GDDR6X video memory operating at speeds of up to 23 Gbps, which will be the highest in the RTX 40 series. At the same time, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super accelerator with 8448 CUDA cores and 16 GB of GDDR6X video memory operating at 21 Gbps should debut. Both video cards will replace their non-Super counterparts, but will retain the same TDP level — 320 W for the RTX 4080 Super and 285 W for the RTX 4070 Ti Super.

The report states that Gigabyte plans to release Aero versions of each new model, which is likely to be well received by consumers who prefer white components. The RTX 4070 Super Aero and RTX 4070 Ti Super Aero appear to have a 3-slot design. In contrast, the RTX 4080 Super Aero will likely retain the design of its non-Super lineup counterpart, measuring 32cm in length and 7.5cm in height.

For consumers looking for more budget-friendly alternatives, Gigabyte will release the RTX 4080 Super in the WindForce and Gaming series. The WindForce series accelerator is positioned as a budget option and is likely to be priced in line with NVIDIA's retail price recommendations. As for the Gaming version, it is aimed at consumers who want an accelerator with a more attractive design and ARGB lighting around the fans. This variety will add more options for those who expect more than a boring black design, especially for accelerators costing around $1000.

Earlier leaks hinted that Gigabyte could release an Eagle Ice line, which would feature a fresh white design tailored for lower-end graphics cards.. However, there is no more information about these boosters at the moment, which may indicate a later launch.

Inno3D plans to release the GeForce RTX 4070 Super iChill X3 with an updated design relative to its predecessors, and next week will present a new version of the video card. A similar update will apply to the Twin X3 and X2 series.

Let us remind you that NVIDIA should announce a new line of GeForce RTX 40 Super video cards next week. The RTX 4070 Super is expected to be released first on January 17th. The RTX 4070 Ti Super should launch on January 24th, and the RTX 4080 Super on January 31st. The cost of the new accelerators remains a mystery.
