NVIDIA has officially unveiled the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card which should be the first RTX 40 series card under the $1000 price bracket.
NVIDIA Unveils GeForce RTX 4070 Ti: Targets $799 RX 7900 XT With All the RTX & DLSS3 Goodies!
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card is exactly what everyone expected, and it is the re-release of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB graphics card that was never released by the green team due to its very different performance but similar naming scheme. Now, almost two months after its planned release, it has been released
GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB The RTX 4070 Ti is finally revealed. Most of you will find that its specs remain roughly the same as the card it was once supposed to be, so let’s start from there.
“Official” NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12GB Specifications
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will use an “Ada Lovelace” AD104-400 GPU configuration with 7680 cores or 60 SMs enabled which is a full fat SKU. The GPU will pack 48MB of L2 cache and feature a 192-bit bus interface, which is why we get up to 12GB of GDDR6X capacities. The memory is said to run at 21Gbps for a memory bandwidth of 504GB/s. The card is said to be clocked at 2610MHz but the peak frequency will be higher.
- “Official” NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12GB Graphics Card TBP – 285 watts
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 8GB TBP “Official” – 290 watts
In terms of power, the TBP is now set to be rated at 285W which is a 35W drop versus the RTX 3080 10GB model and a 5W drop from the RTX 3070 Ti. The new graphics card is expected to perform better than the RTX 3080, but looking at specs beyond the 4080 16GB, there will be a significant gap between both models of about 30-40%.
In terms of performance, NVIDIA is emphasizing the use of RTX and DLSS3 as well as the new RT-overdrive mode when comparing the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card against older RTX 30 GPUs. Thus, it is worth waiting for the final reviews which will give you a more apples-to-apples performance comparison.

One of the most important aspects of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card will be its price which is currently the lowest out of all the next generation graphics cards that NVIDIA and AMD have launched. At $799, the RTX 4070 Ti is $100 cheaper than the RX 7900 XT, $200 cheaper than the 7900 XTX, $400 cheaper than the RTX 4080 and half the price of the RTX 4090 ($1,599). It remains to be seen if the card is worth the value but based on the performance numbers shown by the green team we think the RTX 4070 Ti could end up being a worthy competitor to the RX 7900 XT and should also deliver some great efficiency numbers as we’ve seen in the rest of the CPUs. Graphics: Ada Lovelace.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will hit retail shelves on January 5th, and unlike the rest of the two RTX 40 series cards, the RTX 4070 Ti will not feature any Founders Edition variant, but will only be available in custom variants. Here’s a look at the different custom models of the RTX 4070 Ti that will be available on launch day.
