According to a well-known leaker with a proven track record, Nvidia will be rebadging its canceled GeForce RTX 4080 12GB graphics card to the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. While the move is a logical one, it is still unknown exactly when this Ada Lovelace product of his will hit the market, the price, and the ranking of the best graphics cards.
When Nvidia officially unveiled the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB back in September of this year, it was a pretty weird graphics card to begin with. The board featured his AD104 from Nvidia in full configuration with 7680 CUDA cores and a 192-bit memory interface. According to Nvidia’s own benchmark results, it’s about 30% slower than the RTX 4080 16GB despite the model number of the RTX 4080.
After heavy criticism from the community, Nvidia canceled the 4080 12GB without revealing the fate of the full-fledged AD104 GPU. Apparently, the product will now be called the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. @kopite7 you, tend to have accurate information. However, he is not an official source, so his information should be interpreted with a pinch of salt and pepper.

The RTX 4070 Ti seems like a fitting name for a product made possible by the AD104, but the question remains as to when Nvidia will roll it out. It follows the cards, but sometimes Nvidia launches Ti and non-Ti parts at the same time (RTX 2080 Ti and 2080; RTX 3060 Ti). In most cases, Ti parts come later (for example, 1080 Ti, 1070 Ti, 3090 Ti, 3080 Ti, and 3070 Ti).
Depending on Nvidia’s decision, the RTX 4070 Ti and the regular RTX 4070 could launch at the same time, or at least in the near future. But as we’ve seen since the discontinuation of the 4080 12GB, there’s no clear rhyme or reason for how Nvidia is going.
It’s a safe bet that the vanilla GeForce RTX 4070 doesn’t use a full AD104 GPU, and there are even rumors that it could come with 10 GB of memory with a 160-bit interface. The product easily beats Nvidia’s RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti, perhaps matching or leaving RTX 3080-series models, but that may require creative benchmarks (such as DLSS3). .
Nvidia was supposed to release the RTX 4080 12GB this year, but we don’t know if the same has been rebadged for the RTX 4070 Ti. We may speed up the launch of the RTX 4070 or launch the Ti model ahead of the vanilla model. Both decisions have advantages and disadvantages.
By launching the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti model this year for $899 and keeping the regular RTX 4070 model a secret, Nvidia hits the sales and average selling price (ASP) targets it set when it announced the RTX 4080 12GB You will be able to However, the AMD RX 7900 XT, which is set to launch on December 13th, also costs $899, but given that it clearly has much better specs than the AD104, the RTX 4070 Ti should be priced lower. I can’t help but think about it.
Alternatively, by launching a vanilla RTX 4070 ahead of the Ti model, Nvidia could lower AMD’s prices while leaving room for more top-of-the-line offerings. is, of course, significantly lower than $899. This means Nvidia has a lower ASP.
I’m not sure which way Nvidia will go, or if it might do something else entirely. The RTX 4080 arrives next week and we’ll soon find out how it fares when it joins the GPU benchmarking tier. At that point, we’ll have to wait until AMD’s RDNA 3 launches in December to see where the card drops. raises more questions than
