On January 8th, 2024, NVIDIA introduced the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, a high-performance graphics card designed for the PC gaming community. This card is built using the 5 nm process technology and features the AD103 graphics processor, specifically the AD103-275-A1 variant. It is fully compatible with DirectX 12 Ultimate, ensuring it can efficiently run the latest games and support upcoming titles with advanced features like hardware-ray tracing and variable-rate shading. The AD103 processor is a large chip with a 379 mm² die area and contains 45,900 million transistors. While it shares the same GPU as the fully-enabled GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER, the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER has fewer shader units to align with its design specifications. It includes 8448 shading units, 264 texture mapping units, and 112 ROPs. Additionally, it is equipped with 264 tensor cores for improved machine learning performance and 66 ray tracing acceleration cores for advanced rendering. The reference clocked cards come with 16 GB of GDDR6X memory, connected through a 256-bit memory interface. It operates at a base clock speed of 2340 MHz and can boost up to 2610 MHz, while the memory runs at 1400 MHz (22.4 Gbps effective data-rate). For power, the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER uses a triple-slot design and is powered by a single 16-pin connector, with a maximum power consumption of 285 W. It offers various display outputs, including 1x HDMI 2.1 and 3x DisplayPort 1.4a, and connects to the system through a PCI-Express 4.0 x16 interface. At launch, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER is priced at $799, positioning it as an attractive option for those seeking top-tier graphics performance. 

The ASUS RTX 40 STRIX series represents their most advanced air-cooled graphics card to date, boasting a factory overclock and a design that blurs the line between technology and performance. This review focuses on the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER ROG Strix "O16G Gaming" model, notable for its pre-tuned optimization. This card stands out with its remarkable cooling solution, arguably the most sophisticated in its category. Its design fuses metal components of dual tones and adjustable RGB LED diffusers for a modern aesthetic. The latest ROG STRIX iteration includes improved features like Axial-Tech 0dB fans and an enhanced heatsink with a vapor-chamber plate. Additionally, it offers gamer-centric amenities such as an ARGB header, additional case-fan headers, and dual BIOS options.

The manufacturer has boosted the GPU Boost clock speed to 2670 MHz, adding to its appeal. Despite the card's expected price range of $849-899, which exceeds NVIDIA's suggested $799 MSRP, its performance merits attention. When further optimized, it can approach speeds near 3.0-3.1 GHz, and the memory works at 24 Gbps when tweaked. With these high-end specifications and components, let's proceed with a detailed review of this graphics card.
