How to watch Nvidia’s launch of the RTX 4000 Super today

Nvidia’s RTX 40 Super graphics cards are just around the corner, with Nvidia teasing an unveiling of its mid-generation refresh of its Ada Lovelace GPUs ahead of CES 2024. The cards are expected to update a number of midrange to high-end graphics cards from the RTX 4000-series with increased CUDA core counts, enhanced clock speeds, and potentially more competitive price tags.

But that’s all speculation until Nvidia shows us what it’s been working on. If you want to be there when the news drops about just how powerful (and maybe affordable?) these cards actually are, here’s how to watch the RTX 40 Super launch.

NVIDIA Special Address at CES 2024

Nvidia teased the debut of the RTX 40 Super cards on X (formerly Twitter) in early January, pointing to a single online location at a set date and time: Twitch.tv/Nvidia, 8 a.m. PT (11 a.m. ET) January 8.

That’s not the only place you can watch the broadcast, though. Nvidia will also go live for its special pre-CES launch of these cards on its YouTube channel on the same date and at the same  time.

Nvidia is expected to debut a number of new RTX 40 Super graphics cards, though they won’t be comprehensive. This isn’t a full refresh, it’s an addition of a few mid-tier GPUs to better compete with AMD’s reduced pricing, and toutilize some of Nvidia’s better-binned GPUs that it’s stored up since the original RTX 40 launch.

Rumors and leaks suggest Nvidia will debut the RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super, and RTX 4070 Super at its pre-CES event. The RTX 4080 Super will allegedly get a slight CUDA core bump of around 500 cores, an improvement of a few percentage points on its base and boost clocks, and slightly faster memory. The RTX 4070 Ti Super will have around 800 more CUDA cores than its non-super counterpart, as well as a wider memory bus, giving it around 300% extra memory bandwidth. The RTX 4070 Super, however, will reportedly receive over 1300 new CUDA cores, bringing it much closer to the RTX 4070 Ti.

These cards are slated to launch throughout January, starting with the 4070 Super, and ending at the end of the month with the 4080 Super.

All of this is pure speculation for now, so don’t take it as fact. Along with the rumored specifications, we also have some interesting leaks around pricing. The RTX 4080 Super has been rumored to be priced between $1,000 and $1,200 — around the price of the existing RTX 4080. The RTX 4070 Ti is rumored to be priced at $800, and the RTX 4070 Super at just $600. These prices are very close to the existing non-Super models, suggesting Nvidia is using more aggressive pricing with its Super refresh to better target AMD’s RTX 7000 GPUs that have received price cuts.

Should you buy the RTX 4080 now or wait for the RTX 4080 Super?

Nvidia's RTX 4080 didn't have a warm reception when it first launched, but a series of slow price drops have made it a more attractive option among the best graphics cards. However, stock is quickly drying up, with most retailers offering only a few models at list price. Is now finally the time to pull the trigger?

Stock is likely disappearing due to Nvidia's Super refresh. The RTX 4080 Super is now official, and Nvidia has confirmed it will replace the RTX 4080 in its current lineup. With the new card arriving shortly, it's looking like you'll have to be patient if you want the best bang for your buck.

Nvidia did the unthinkable with the RTX 4080 Super
Jeff Fisher holding the RTX 4080 Super at CES 2024.

I'm floored. We all knew that Nvidia was releasing new Super graphics cards at CES 2024, but I never expected Nvidia to drop the price with the release of the RTX 4080 Super. The updated model, which will replace the RTX 4080 that released at $1,200, is arriving for $1,000. Nvidia has been the primary driving force behind high GPU prices, but the RTX 4080 Super is a strange change of course that actually brings prices down.

A big reason why is that the RTX 4080 Super isn't too different from the RTX 4080. It's using the same AD103 GPU, but it comes with the full die, equaling 10,240 CUDA cores. It's just a 5% bump over the base model, and the Super version comes with the same 16GB of GDDR6X memory and the same 320 watts of power draw.

Nvidia already makes some of the best graphics cards, but it's also not resting on its laurels. Although the RTX 40-series -- bolstered by a refresh -- is still very recent, Nvidia is also working on its next-gen GPUs from the RTX 50-series.

Although the release date of RTX 50-series GPUs is still far away, various rumors and leaks give us a better clue of what to expect. Here's everything we know about Nvidia's upcoming generation of graphics cards.
