Review | Nvidia RTX 4070 Super: The power needed to enjoy different games at the highest quality

The Nvidia family of graphics cards continues to grow and not long ago, last January the new Nvidia RTX 4070 Super arrived, a card that is an improved version of the previous RTX 4070 and that arrives accompanied by a jump in the performance, as well as an excellent relationship between price and power. This is how during the last weeks we have been testing the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Super – MSI Gaming X Slim, a card that attracts a lot of attention both for its slim design and its power.

When talking about the Nvidia RTX 4070 Super we are talking about a card built on the Ada Lovelace architecture, with 16 GB GDDR6X of dedicated memory and 7168 Cuda cores, as well as 3rd Generation Ray Tracing cores and 4th generation Tensor Cores. In this regard, it must be remembered that while the CUDA cores are in charge of performing complex calculations, the Ray Tracing cores are in charge of ray tracing; while the Tensor Cores, which arrived with the 20 series in 2018, are also in charge of mathematical operations, playing a quite relevant role in everything related to technologies such as DLSS.

Without a doubt one of the most notable elements of this card and the cards that make up the Nvidia 40 series, are the technologies that accompany it, This is how with the RTX 4070 Super we have access to DLSS 3.5, the latest version of Nvidia technology that allows greater performance in different games using the dedicated cores and that to put it in simple words It allows us to play at higher quality without requiring so many resources.

It should be remembered that with DLSS 3, unlike DLSS 2 that is available on previous generations of Nvidia graphics cards, uses artificial intelligence to create entirely new frames instead of just pixelswhich allows access to a much more fluid game.

But let’s get to what matters, gaming performance…

Without a doubt, the Nvidia RTX 4070 Super stands out for its power, largely due to the aforementioned technologies, This is how in games like Cyberpunk 2077 we can maintain a fluid game close to 90 frames per second in a resolution of 1440p, with the graphics on high. Similar is what happens with Call of Duty Warzone, where although the frames per second go up and down quite a bit due to how the game is optimized, they move between approximately 140 and 170, delivering quite fluid and more than decent performance for a game its size.

In the case of more recent games, such as Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, a game that was released on May 16, We have no problems maintaining 100 frames per second when playing in high quality, giving a more than attractive experience for one of the best games in recent years.

Something that should be mentioned is that these high quality performances are achieved by having DLSS activated, in our case by focusing on quality, although you can always play and gain a few extra frames per second if you deactivate features such as ray tracing or focus DLSS on performance.

It should be mentioned that Nvidia DLSS is not the only technology that the RTX 4070 Super offers and we also have access to Nvidia Reflex, a technology that seeks to reduce system latency in competitive games such as Valorant or CoD: Warzone. That is, reduce the time between clicking the mouse and our action being reflected on the screen. This certainly comes back to the card in an attractive option for all those who enjoy the most competitive games, and they not only look for the best visual appearance, but also to have the best performance when playing.

It’s not all games…

Since not everything in life is games, The RTX 4070 Super card also works for those fans of live broadcasts with the Nvidia Broadcast application, which allows access to different features powered by AI, either to eliminate background sounds or the noise that forms in the images.

It also allows things like removing the background, blurring it, or replacing it with some other image that we want. Finally, it also gives access to Eye Contact technology, which through artificial intelligence allows us to always look at the camera, even if we are looking elsewhere.

Finally, In the RTX 4070 Super, we also find artificial intelligence that allows us to accelerate editing applications such as Adobe Illustrator or Premiere, And through the use of AI, Nvidia drivers allow greater performance, thus saving work time, both when editing and when rendering.

In conclusion…

The Nvidia RTX 4070 Super is an excellent card that perfectly combines everything: power, new technologies and price, and it is a card at a quite attractive price in relation to other options available on the market. At the same time, it allows you to enjoy all the technologies related to boosting game performance through the use of artificial intelligence and dedicated cores, such as Nvidia DLSS 3.5 and Nvidia Reflex. In addition, its different components allow you to play at a resolution of 1440p or even 4K while maintaining a fairly high and stable frame rate, becoming an excellent accompaniment for next-generation games.
