The announcement and start of sales for the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti desktop graphics card are set to take place next week. However, a mistake by the French office of NVIDIA resulted in the characteristics of the card being published on the official website ahead of time.
The information was quickly deleted, but not before internet users captured it. It was revealed that the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is a renamed version of the previously cancelled GeForce RTX 4080, with a graphics chip containing 7680 CUDA cores and operating at a frequency of up to 2.61 GHz. The card also has 12 GB of GDDR6X memory.
Internal tests show that the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is up to 3.5 times faster than the GeForce RTX 3080 in games such as Cyberpunk 2077, although this figure is based on the use of NVIDIA’s DLSS image scaling technology. The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is set to go on sale on January 5th, with a rumoured price of $799.
Performance data from 3DMark suggests that the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is 12-20% faster than the GeForce RTX 3080, depending on the test. It is also 32-39% faster than the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and 20-30% slower than the GeForce RTX 4080.
In terms of performance, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is roughly on par with the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti in 3DMark. A photo of the AD104 GPU, which the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is based on, has also been released. The card is expected to be available for purchase from selected partners.
It is worth noting that the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is not the only new graphics card set to be released by NVIDIA. The company is also rumoured to be working on a GeForce RTX 4060, which is expected to be a more budget-friendly option.
Overall, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is shaping to be a powerful and potentially popular graphics card. Its performance in games such as Cyberpunk 2077 and its potential for use with NVIDIA’s DLSS technology make it an attractive option for gamers. However, the rumoured price of $799 may be a barrier for some, especially considering the current economic climate. It remains to be seen how the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will be received by the market when it is officially released next week.
