hardware leaker MEGA size GPU (opens in new tab) claims that Nvidia will release the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti on January 5th. The leaker was pretty accurate about the Ada Lovelace leak, but we recommend approaching the rumored launch date with caution.
The leaker also shared what is believed to be screenshots of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti’s features. Unfortunately, this information does not confirm graphics card specifications. However, according to kopite7kimi, Nvidia will likely recycle his canceled GeForce RTX 4080 12GB into his GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. Despite his Nvidia efforts to justify the existence of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB, consumers didn’t buy into the chipmaker’s marketing. The spec difference between his SKU of 16GB and his 12GB was just too big.
Assuming the rumors are true and Nvidia doesn’t make any changes, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti should use the same specs as the later GeForce RTX 4080 12GB. We can see his 7,680 CUDA cores with a base clock of 2,310 MHz and a boost clock of up to 2,610 MHz. An AD104 powered graphics card could feature 12 GB of GDDR6X memory clocked at 21 Gbps across a 192-bit memory interface for up to 504 GBps of memory bandwidth. Nvidia’s benchmarks showed the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB to be up to 30% slower than his 16GB SKU, so we may already know how well the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will perform.
The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti should be a 285W graphics card, no change. Nonetheless, it could still feature the 16-pin power connector that debuted on the GeForce RTX 4090. So far, 23 of his GeForce RTX 4090 owners have reported that their power adapters have melted. Nvidia is investigating this issue, but the chip manufacturer has not provided an update, when can we expect to see results? I am overwhelmed by his Nvidia silence on the subject.
When it comes to the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti’s performance in general, the only missing piece of information might be its price. Originally, Nvidia was charging $899 for his GeForce RTX 4080 12GB.
