NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card
January 5, 2023
Continuing its tradition of releasing a new graphics architecture every two years, this year NVIDIA presents the Ada Lovelace GPU. Ada GPU is built on the foundation laid down by Turing. NVIDIA describes the Ada Lovelace GPUs as a quantum leap over Ampere, and the GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition based on the NVIDIA Ampere GPU is superior in every way over the previous generation.
The Ada GPU architecture has a lot to talk about in this review, but so does the new RTX lineup. The Ada suite delivers faster shader performance, faster ray tracing performance, and faster AI performance. Built on an all-new process node and featuring an architecture designed from the ground up, Ada is a killer product with a lot of numbers to speak of.
The foundation for Ada was to take everything NVIDIA had learned with its Turing & Ampere architectures and not only improve it but also to use its DNA to shape a product into an entirely new performance class. NVIDIA made long claims when they introduced the Ada lineup last month with up to 4x performance claims and we’ll find out if NVIDIA hit all the marks with their Ada architecture because this review will be your how-to path to what makes Ada and how it performs against its predecessors.
Today, we are going to take a look at the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card. We’ll be looking at different models of the AIB since the 4070 Ti doesn’t feature the Founders Edition.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series gaming graphics cards – the biggest GPU performance jump in recent history
Turing wasn’t just a graphics core, the graphics core was the basis for future GPUs. The future is now being realized with next-generation consoles that delve into the conversations around ray tracing and AI-assisted supersampling technologies. NVIDIA had a head start with Turing & Ampere and their Ada generation will do things infinitely better.
Ada GPU does many of the traditional things we expect from a GPU, but at the same time, it also breaks the barrier when it comes to non-traditional GPU operations. Just to summarize some of the features:
- New Streaming Processors (SM)
- New Turing Tensor cores
- New real-time ray tracing acceleration
- New shader improvements
- New deep learning features for graphics and inference
- New high-performance GDDR6X memory subsystem
- New HDMI 2.1 and next generation display engine from NVENC / NVDEC
The above technologies are some of the building blocks of the Ada GPU, but there is more to the graphics core itself that we will talk about in detail, so let’s get started.
