Aside from the above changes you will find that both 4080 Super and 4080 have pretty much the same specs. We will check a list of all its specs along with the specs of other cards by Nvidia that can be considered its competition in a bit, but for now, here is how the new design looks like.

Design and Looks

Speaking of the card’s design and looks Nvidia has decided to spice things up this time around. They went ahead with a pure Black matte design which can be annoyingly a finger-print magnet. Luckily, you won’t have to bother about it much as it can be cleaned quite easily. You can see a minimal GeForce RTX on its side.

Its dimensions are as follows:

  • Length: 304 mm
  • Width: 137 mm
  • Height: 61 mm
  • Slots: 3-Slot

Now, this card might feel quite large, which in many ways it is. But it is there up in the leagues with the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080. Also keep in mind its TGP is 320 W, so it is reasonable to expect the card to heat up easily. However, the card’s big design works in its favor and it stays quite cool while also being quiet.

On its back you can find the following Display Output Slots:

  • HDMI 2.1: x1
  • DisplayPort 1.4a: x3

As for its power connector requirements, you have the options of 3x PCIe 8-pin cables (adapter is included in the box) or 1x 450 W or greater PCIe Gen 5 cable.
