An RTX 4070 Ti Super faster than a 4080 – it’s possible!


In the world of GPU modding, we find Paulo Gomes managing to exceed the performance of an RTX 4080 with an RTX 4070 Ti Super on steroids. Of course, knowing him, a VRAM change was made, but still!

RTX 4070 Ti Super: after a VRAM change, the card outperforms the RTX 4080!

RTX 4070 Ti Super

First of all, a quick reminder. An RTX 4070 Ti Super is 16 GB of GDDR6X memory at 21 Gbps on a 256-bit bus. The GPU, an AD103, has 66 SMs containing a total of 8448 cuda cores. As for the RTX 4080, we’re now talking about a GPU with 76 SM, or 9728 cuda cores. As for memory, we have 16 GB GDDR6X, also based on a 256-bit bus. However, VRAM is also faster, at 22.4 Gbps.

For the occasion, Paulo Gomes changed the memory chips on the 4070 Ti S. After this, overclocking was applied, pushing the memory to frequencies between 24 and 26 Gbps. In the end, on Unigine Superposition 8K, the score posted by the modded card was higher than that of the RTX 4080: 8870 pts vs. 8525 pts. By way of comparison, the original card posted a score of 7212 pts.

At the same time, TecLab was doing the same, modding a 4070 Ti S, but running the card with even faster memory: 26 Gbps. Thus, combined with GPU overclocking, the score fell to 9133 pts, a performance close to that of the RTX 4080 Super this time.
