Nvidia RTX 4080 Super RTX 4070 Super RTX 4070Ti Super RTX 4080 Super Specs

The RTX 4080 SUPER despite being the most powerful in the RTX 40 SUPER series, actually has the least improvements over its non-super counterpart. Compared to the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER’s and RTX 4070 SUPER’s 10% and 20% core count increase over their non-super counterparts, the RTX 4080 SUPER only has a 5% increase over the RTX 4080. However, the RTX 4080 SUPER sports the largest “discount” over its non-super counterpart at an 18% discount compared to the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER’s 12.4% discount.

The ASUS ROG Strix RTX 4080 SUPER is our largest GPU to date measuring 357.6 x 149.3 x 70.1mm. However, when looking at it on the side, I must commend ASUS for having the side profile of the ROG Strix card look smaller than it seems. There are no protrusions allowing the heatsink to be fully exposed for optimal cooling.

Like the rest of ASUS’ RTX 40 series GPU lineup, the ASUS ROG Strix RTX 4080 SUPER has a BIOS switch next to its 12VHPWR connector albeit it’s a bit more difficult to notice and access especially to non-enthusiasts due to the installed full metal backplate. The switch can be accessed underneath and it’s set to Performance profile by default. This is also the profile we used to test the GPU for our benchmarks.

The ASUS ROG Strix RTX 4080 SUPER has a full metal backplate that has a cut-out behind the GPU die as well as to where the PCB ends. The cutout exposes the heatsink acting similar to Nvidia’s flowthrough cooler concept.

It’s baffling to see that ASUS is the only GPU brand to go the extra mile to provide an additional video-out port for a total of 5 video outputs. The ASUS ROG Strix RTX 4080 SUPER has three display port 1.4a ports and two HDMI 2.1a ports that support HDCP 2.3.

Blender is a widely used, free, open-source 3D creation suite. It supports the whole 3D pipeline process from modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, and even motion tracking. Blender has become a standard for CPU benchmarks with the BMW27 and Classroom Scene most used. This prompted the company to release Blender Open Data Benchmark in 2018, a benchmark-specific version allowing users to run a preset benchmark and share the results online like 3DMark.



V-Ray Benchmark is a stand-alone version of V-Ray developed by Chaos Group. It is designed to test the CPU and GPU by rendering sample scenes at a fixed amount of time. V-Ray is a plug-in mostly utilized by 3D computer graphics software applications mainly for industrial design, product design, architecture, film, and video game production. V-Ray is not limited to 64-threads as it supports multi and mega-threading.
