NVIDIA surprised many with the RTX 40 SUPER series, which we never expected to see since it never made it to the RTX 30 series. With that being said, the RTX 40 SUPER series cards will be replacing its non-SUPER counterpart, similar to what we’ve seen in the past. This time, we’ll be taking a look at the PNY GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER 16GB VERTO Overclocked Triple Fan DLSS 3, one of the models PNY has in its arsenal this time.

We’ve compared its performance with the RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4080 as a quick benchmark. Now, let’s explore the expected performance of the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC. Also, we will be calling it the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC to make things easier to read due to the lengthy name.

The RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC arrives in a simple packaging with adequate protection overall. Inside the box, you’ll find a user’s guide, an anti-sag bracket to support the card’s weight, and a 2 x PCIe 8-pin to 12VHPWR adapter.

In terms of design, the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC sports a large yet minimalist triple-fan cooler, similar to what we’ve seen on the RTX 4080 SUPER VERTO OC. It occupies three slots in your PCIe expansion card area, so ensure your PC case has sufficient clearance. Being part of the VERTO series, the RTX 4070 SUPER VERTO OC does not come with RGB lighting, making it a suitable choice for users who prefer systems without RGB illumination.

For RTX 40 series cards, the 12VHPWR header is now standard, requiring users to accommodate it. If your power supply already includes the 12VHPWR cable, you can continue using it; otherwise, utilize the provided adapter to power the card. The recommended power supply for the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER is at least 750W, slightly higher than the RTX 4070 Ti.

In terms of display output options, you’ll find the typical 3 x DisplayPort and 1 x HDMI ports.

Test System Setup

As previously stated, we’ve conducted performance tests on the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC, comparing it against the RTX 4080 FE and RTX 4070 Ti. For our gaming benchmark tests, we selected a range of AAA titles to run at their highest settings. These tests were carried out at an ambient temperature of 28°C, using the following configuration:

Games benchmark – Raster

  • Alan Wake 2 (4K, Highest Settings)

When it comes to raster performance, NVIDIA’s RTX 4070 Ti SUPER is tailored for optimal 1440p gaming, mirroring the capabilities of the RTX 4070 SUPER. However, it boasts significant power, allowing it to smoothly handle numerous AAA titles at a 4k resolution with frame rates exceeding 60fps. Notably, it accomplishes this feat across most titles, barring more demanding ones such as Alan Wake 2 and Cyberpunk 2077.

  • Alan Wake 2 (1440P, Highest Settings)

Scaling down to 1440p, the improved performance of the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC becomes apparent, closely trailing the 4080. This is especially noticeable in games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Horizon Zero Dawn, F1 22, and Metro Exodus. Across other titles, the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER outperforms the RTX 4070 Ti for the most part, except for more demanding titles like Alan Wake 2 and Cyberpunk 2077.

  • Alan Wake 2 (1080P, Highest Settings)

Regarding 1080p resolution, all tested cards perform as expected. Frankly, gaming at this resolution seems unnecessary when the graphics card is more than capable. Overall, we observe an average of 15% better performance on the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC compared to the RTX 4070 Ti.

Games benchmark – Ray Tracing

Transitioning to ray tracing performance, we intentionally excluded DLSS 3 from this test to provide a clearer evaluation of the base ray tracing capabilities of the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC compared to other cards, without the aid of frame generation.

  • Alan Wake 2 (4K, Highest Settings) (1)

At a 4k resolution, most tested titles achieve playable frame rates of 60fps or higher. However, the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC faces challenges with demanding titles like Alan Wake 2, Cyberpunk 2077, and Metro Exodus. It generally outperforms the RTX 4070 Ti in most tests, showcasing significant improvement over the MSRP model. Nevertheless, it falls short of delivering the expected performance level close to that of an RTX 4080.

  • Alan Wake 2 (1440P, Highest Settings) (1)
  • Alan Wake 2 (1080P, Highest Settings) (1)

Similar trends are observed at both 1440p and 1080p resolutions, where the performance of the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC appears more consistent and reasonable compared to what was observed with the MSRP model a few weeks ago. The performance boost here is akin to what was witnessed in the raster benchmark results, approximately 15%.

Thermals & Power Draw

Now turning to power consumption and thermals, the GPU load temperature peaked at about 77°C under heavy loads. Both the memory junction and GPU hotspot temperatures too, exhibit load temperatures of 92°C and 95°C respectively. This, of course, can be improved by increasing the fan curve using the VelocityX Verto Edition software.

I think that PNY could afford to be more aggressive on the fan curve. The heatsink is very well designed and the cooler is still able to remain silent at even higher RPM. Hence, benefiting from the lower temperatures. Besides, PNY shouldn’t be worry too much about the acoustics as users would install the card in a PC case and enjoy playing games at high frame rates.

During our testing, we observed an intriguing aspect: the RTX 4070 Ti SUPER appears to draw a little bit more power when using a 12VHPWR connector capable of delivering up to 450W. Despite its rated TGP of 285W, the maximum power draw reached 342W according to PCAT but only for a short moment. However, conducting additional tests did not yield any significant performance improvements. For now, we won’t be commenting any further on this observation until we manage to gather more findings to answer the reason behind this.

In most gaming scenarios, particularly with demanding AAA titles like Alan Wake 2 and Cyberpunk 2077, the average power draw hovers around 280W. Less demanding titles i.e Far Cry 6, The Division 2, Forza Horizon 5, etc will only draw about 260W at most throughout the entire gaming session.

Final Thoughts

In terms of performance, the PNY GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC remains a strong contender capable of 4K gaming, closely trailing the anticipated performance level to that of an RTX 4080. Our testing reveals it outperforms the RTX 4070 Ti by approximately 15% in gaming. While the 16GB of memory appears underutilized most of the time, particularly at resolutions of 1440p or lower. Nonetheless, depending on the user’s workload, more VRAM is always welcomed.

Regarding cooling performance, we observe a slightly higher overall load temperature across the board when compared to the outgoing RTX 4070 Ti but this is understandable due to the added 15% performance. Though like I’d said before, PNY has been going easy with the fan curves and they should consider increasing it more to make better use of their cooler design – if you already spend the time and effort to improve your cooler, why limit its performance when the fan curve is the reason to all this? Let’s go all out and this card will easily compete with other

In summary, the PNY GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER VERTO OC delivers the expected performance of an RTX 4070 Ti SUPER, which is commendable. The selling price at RM 4,288 is about RM200+ higher than the RTX 4070 Ti but you get what you paid for – higher core counts on the CUDA cores, RT cores, and Tensor cores that give you better gaming performance overall. You’re also getting 16GB worth of memory, which comes in handy especially if you’re working on video rendering with this card. If you’re upgrading from something older than the RTX 30 series or RX 6000 series, it’s worth considering.
