Nvidia has lastly introduced the $799 RTX 4070 Ti launching Jan 5
The Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti, née RTX 4080 12GB, has now been formally introduced at Nvidia’s CES Particular Deal with (opens in new tab) in information that may come as a shock to no-one. Such is the leaky GPU trade that we might already had each the $799 launch value and the January 5 launch date (opens in new tab) unveiled.
However now Nvidia has proven off a number of extra of its personal efficiency metrics, promising this third-tier Ada GPU will “max out your 1440p gaming monitor,” so sayeth Nvidia’s Jeff Fisher. Nvidia’s numbers present the cardboard outperforming the RTX 3090 Ti by fairly a way, but it surely’s most likely price noting the numbers are more likely to be taken below one of the best case situations with DLSS 3 and Body Technology thrown in for good measure.
I would recommend ready for some impartial numbers earlier than leaping to any efficiency conclusions. I’ve a sense you will not have to attend too lengthy…
We already know a good quantity concerning the RTX 4070 Ti, particularly on condition that Nvidia had beforehand introduced it because the RTX 4080 12GB on the tail finish of 2022 earlier than subsequently unlaunching it (opens in new tab) given the consternation about having two disparate GPUs below the very same identify.
The RTX 4070 Ti then has the identical spec, makes use of the identical AD104 GPU, however now comes with a $100 lower cost tag. That is doubtless solely going to make each the RTX 4080 16GB (opens in new tab) at $1,200+ and the RX 7900 XT (opens in new tab) at $899 much more unpalatable than they already are.
With this anticipated equivalent spec meaning the RTX 4070 Ti goes to come back with fewer CUDA cores than the RTX 3080 10GB, a reminiscence system extra akin to the RTX 3060, and a GPU that is solely a bit of greater than the one inside an RTX 3050.
If it is something like the prevailing RTX 40-series playing cards then will probably be counting on a mixture of excessive clock speeds and a surfeit of L2 cache to push it forward of the upper spec earlier gen GPUs.
One unhappy factor to notice is that Nvidia continues to be not providing any hope to mainstream avid gamers by way of any GPU releases extra tailor-made in direction of a wise funds. Positive, the $799 price ticket is decrease than AMD’s new playing cards, and the unique value it was listed at below the outdated RTX 4080 12GB badge, but it surely’s nonetheless an enormous sum of money for a single element.
On that entrance Fisher explains that “the RTX 30-series continues to be one of the best GPU for mainstream avid gamers,” with out even a touch of the disappointment to which that phrasing will likely be acquired.
