In the third week of January, a total of 545 GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards went on sale from German electronics retailer Mindfactory. from the data, tech epiphany, the new 70-class Ada Lovelace GPUs seem to perform significantly better than the much more affordable 60-class Ampere GPUs. Of course, there are no 60-class Lovelace GPUs for desktop yet.
Nvidia’s recently launched GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is clearly the volume leader at major German electronics retailer Mindfactory. The RTX 4070 Ti is expensive for a 70-class GPU, and enthusiasts have vocally protested its $799 MSRP. Nevertheless, the 4070 Ti seems to be selling like hot cakes in Germany.

There are other interesting data points from these latest Mindfactory numbers. Focusing on the latest generation release, AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX sold his 300 units. That’s over 50% more than the RTX 4080’s 190 units. The RX 7900 XT sold 200 units while the RTX 4090 sold 210 units.
Mindfactory shoppers seem to have enough disposable income to pursue PC-based hobbies. The best-selling weed GPU was the RX 6500 XT with just 65 units, while most of the other lightweight performers sold less than 20 units in a week.
Unfortunately for newcomers to the GPU market, Intel’s GPUs don’t seem to be attracting buyers. Mindfactory data shows that both the Arc A380 and A770 sold just 10 each. The A750 is also available in his web store, but it may be out of stock recently as it is expected to be back in stock this Thursday.
The German data is bright, but unfortunately we haven’t gotten the same transparency from the big US retailers. Newegg maintains a best-selling page for graphics cards, but doesn’t share hard numbers. Assuming Newegg’s rankings reflect actual sales numbers, the top three sellers are the $1,999 RTX 4090, the $1,269 RTX 4080, and the $2,399 RTX 4090 with AiO cooler, currently Earn a lot of cash.
If you want to find an example of the RTX 4070 Ti in the Newegg rankings, scroll down to number 4 (MSI Gaming, $849), then number 13 (MSI Ventus, $829). Newegg’s list of top 20 graphics cards for sale doesn’t have more RTX 4070 Ti cards. Upon double-checking, there were also Gigabyte models available directly from Newegg, but no Asus models.
The next desktop GPU launches expected from Nvidia and partners should be the GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 Ti. With the strong sales of the RTX 4070 Ti, Nvidia and its partners may be less concerned about criticism of the upcoming pricing.
