colorful (via video cards (opens in new tab)) uploaded a branded product page GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Battle Ax Deluxe (opens in new tab) graphics card. The new listing confirms that the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is indeed Nvidia’s ‘unreleased’ GeForce RTX 4080 12GB and poised to be one of the best graphics cards out there.
According to the specs, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti uses AD104 (Ada Lovelace) silicon, the same die at the heart of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB. A die measuring 295 mm² houses up to 7,680 CUDA cores. Colorful hasn’t confirmed the number of CUDA cores, but doesn’t expect Nvidia to reduce the number. Instead, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will likely pack the entire die, meaning that in addition to 7,680 CUDA Cores, you’ll also have 240 Tensor Cores and 60 RT Cores at your disposal.
The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti has a base clock of 2,310 MHz and a boost clock that goes up to 2,610 MHz. Unfortunately, Colorful doesn’t share the boost clocks of his GeForce RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe, so it’s unclear if it will feature a factory overclock. However, Nvidia’s benchmarks showed the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB to be up to 30% slower than his originally called GeForce RTX 4080 or GeForce RTX 4080 16GB. So we already have a good idea of how the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will perform.
The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti holds a GeForce RTX 4080 12GB memory subsystem. Additionally, the graphics card features 12 GB of fast GDDR6X memory running at 21 Gbps. The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti features a generous 192-bit memory interface and offers up to 504 GBps of memory bandwidth, nearly 30% lower than the regular GeForce RTX 4080.
Like the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti sticks to a 285W TDP. Unfortunately, multiple GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards have been damaged as the graphics card still uses the problematic 16-pin power connector (12VHPWR). Considering the more modest TDP, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is happy with two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, or even three in the case of the factory overclocked model. However, given the overall connector-related meltdown debacle, there’s no point in using a 16-pin power connector on the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. As for the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe, Colorful chose to use a 16-pin power connector. It will be interesting to see if other vendors follow suit, though.
Dimensionally, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti could be as big as the GeForce RTX 4080 or GeForce RTX 4090. Going back to our colorful example, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe boasts a triple-slot design that reaches 326.5 in length. mm (12.85 inches). The graphics card weighs 1.52 kg (3.35 lbs).
Hardware leaker MEGAsizeGPU, who has a solid track record with Ada Lovelace leaks, claims that Nvidia will launch the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti on January 5th. However, the price remains a mystery. Nvidia was originally asking $899 for the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB. Logically, though, given that AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon 7900 XT, which rival the GeForce RTX 4080, hit the market for $999 and $899 respectively, chipmakers are likely to be forced to cut prices. I can say Additionally, many rumors claim that AMD is facing supply issues. Therefore, RDNA 3 inventory may be limited at launch, making it difficult to maintain MSRP.
