NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti and 4080 to make way for SUPER variants
Board Channels reports that NVIDIA is no longer mass-producing two RTX 40 models.
According to Board Channels, a site that aggregates sources and information from NVIDIA card partners AMD and Intel, NVIDIA recently announced the discontinuation of two GPUs. The stock cut is now in place and these graphics cards would no longer be available starting this quarter. It seems that NVIDIA has stopped mass production of these GPUs.
The cards in question are the RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4080. NVIDIA has distributed the latest inventory and board partners are currently placing orders for their successors, the so-called RTX 4070 Ti SUPER and RTX 4080 SUPER models which are expected to launch in January.
We have yet to hear anything that suggests this is the case, but there is often a misunderstanding regarding “cessation” and stopping mass production. The first is a complete product shutdown with no more production planned, while the second may be a temporary measure as the company shifts its inventory to different models, regularly sharing the same PCB or GPU design.
NVIDIA is known to stop mass production of cards only to resume it later, depending on market needs. This was especially true during the COVID-19 period, when NVIDIA had to adjust its product portfolio on a monthly basis to meet demand.
In other words, this shouldn’t be seen as the end all be all for these GPUs, but rather a shift in NVIDIA’s focus towards new models. The RTX 4070Ti/4080 will still be produced, but not at the same scale, if this report is accurate. Additionally, the RTX 4070 Ti isn’t even designed as a Founders Edition, so mass production in this case means a limited supply of GPUs for card assembly from card partners.
