Hashrate of RTX 4070 Super in cryptocurrency mining

rtx4070 super hashrate mining ethash kawpowAt the beginning of 2024, Nvidia introduced enhanced versions of its GeForce RTX 4000 series graphics cards with the "Super" designation. The first updated graphics card to hit the market was the RTX 4070 Super, which we will compare to the base RTX 4070 and examine its capabilities in cryptocurrency mining. Especially considering that the cost has remained unchanged compared to the regular RTX 4070, remaining at $599.



Comparison of Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 Super graphics cards:

Specifications RTX 4070

From the table, it can be seen that the main change in the RTX 4070 Super compared to the RTX 4070 is the increased number of CUDA cores by 21.7%, which, in turn, affected the GPU chip's performance in FP32 mathematical calculations by the same percentage. This parameter directly influences the performance of graphics cards in mining GPU-dependent algorithms such as Autolykos, Beamhash, Blake3, MTP, Octopus, and others.

On the other hand, the memory subsystem of the RTX 4070 Super remains unchanged, and the memory bandwidth will be at the same level of 504 Gbit/s. Therefore, on algorithms like KawPoW, FiroPow, and Ethash, the mining performance will remain the same as that of the regular RTX 4070.

Hashrate of the RTX 4070 Super on various mining algorithms:

ETHash/ETChash (Ethereum classic): 66Mh/s 140W

EthashB3 (Hypra): 66Mh/s 140W

KawPow (Ravencoin): 35Mh/s 200W

Pyrinhash (Pyrin): 7,8Gh/s 160W

Karlsenhash (Karlsen): 1600Mh/s 125W

NexaPow (Nexa): 120Mh/s 190W

Autolykos2 (Ergo): 122Mh/s 80W

DynexSolve (Dynex): 3.86Mh/s 80W

Radiant (Radiant): 1.3GH/s 120W

Blake3 (Alephium): 2.4Gh/s 160W

Blake3Ironfish (Ironfish): 21,5GH/s 150W

Conclusion: The RTX 4070 Super graphics card received minimal changes and, in terms of its parameters, sits squarely between the RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 Ti. Since the memory subsystems of all three models (RTX 4070, RTX 4070 Super, RTX 4070 Ti) are identical, they will show similar results on memory-dependent algorithms. The GPU difference can also be considered minimal as they are manufactured using the same TSMC 4N technological process. In other words, the energy efficiency of all three Nvidia graphics cards is the same, and the increase in performance is achieved through equivalent increases in power consumption.

The choice between the three considered graphics cards should primarily be based on price. As the RTX 4070 Super has the same recommended price as the RTX 4070, and the RTX 4070 Ti is significantly more expensive at $799, the choice in favor of the RTX 4070 seems obvious. However, it is essential to consider the prices in retail stores, as the RTX 4070 Super is a new model, and prices in stores may be inflated, while last year's models, RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 Ti, may be sold below the recommended prices.

Among all the showcased innovations, the RTX 4070 Ti Super with a recommended price of $799 appears to be the most interesting solution. It has the potential to become one of the optimal graphics cards for mining in the entire RTX 4000 series, which we will definitely consider in our future reviews as a mining graphics card.
