The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti launches on January 5th
At $799 MSRP, the brand new Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti has been announced and is scheduled to go on sale as early as tomorrow, January 5th. Utilizing the new Ada Lovelace architecture, the RTX 4070 Ti is intended to surpass the RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards with better performance and DLSS 3 capabilities.
According to Nvidia, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will perform up to three times better than their previous flagship GPU, the RTX 3090 Ti. After the RTX 4090 and two models of the RTX 4080, the 4070 Ti is the fourth card to be unveiled for the RTX 40 series.
It shares similar specs to the canceled 12GB version of the RTX 4080, as regulatory filings showed that Nvidia “unlaunched” via a press release in response to criticism of its branding and positioning. The 4070 Ti can use up to 285 W of power and has 7,680 CUDA cores in addition to 12GB of GDDR6X memory on a 192-bit memory bus. For those worrying about power consumption, Nvidia stated that average power draw when gaming is closer to 226 W.
The Santa Clara, California-based tech company also confirmed in their press release that the 4070 Ti is “a great max settings 1440p gaming GPU”. It should also run steady in 4K as well when enabling the DLSS feature. Although the price surely is hefty, spending $800 for a GPU in line with the $2000 3080 Ti is a good value. We’re just going to have to wait for benchmarks to tell us the true story.
Due to a RTX 4090 connector cable issue that has melted for some customers, the RTX 40 series has been a hot topic as of late, no pun intended. Following the decline of cryptocurrency, we expect the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti to be readily available for gamers looking to upgrade their rig.
