According to a recent leak, Nvidia may be preparing to add Super Refresh for their Nvidia GeForce RTX graphic cards. If this is correct, this will affect 40 series graphic cards. This latest series of Nvidia graphics cards launched in October 2022.
New Super Refresh for Nvidia GeForce RTX Graphic Cards
Reliable hardware leaker is claiming that Nvidia may be introducing the SUPER refresh to at least three of its existing graphics cards: the GeForce RTX 4070, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, and the GeForce RTX 4080. The “SUPER” moniker has historically been used by Nvidia to indicate mid-series updates for multiple SKUs. However, this would mark the first time Nvidia has created a SUPER refresh for a Ti card if the leak is really true.
Meanwhile, their recent track record suggests reliability, but there is also another possibility which this leak is not true. Also, no word has been given as to when these mid-series updates are slated to roll out, but more information is likely to come if there is a valid true thing behind this leak.
If a refresh does happen, perhaps this will mean price cuts for some of the existing cards in Nvidia’s lineup. Nvidia’s RTX 4070 did finally see a price cut recently, however, the Founders Edition still remains at its $600 price point. For comparison, the RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti have both seen discounts long before the RTX 4070.

Another interesting aspect of this leak is the potential RTX 4080 SUPER. The debate between the Nvidia RTX 4080 and the RTX 4090 skews toward the latter in most cases, but perhaps the SUPER could help tilt things in the 4080’s favor if price points change or if performance is boosted enough by the mid-series update.
Aside from any other potential updates, Nvidia officially announced and launched DLSS 3.5 for RTX GPUs. The proprietary Nvidia technology DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) offers players the ability to enhance image quality by doubling frame rates and improving resolution.
