Nvidia’s RTX 4070 Ti was doomed from the minute it opted to “unlaunch” the 12GB RTX 4080 due to uproar. To match, Nvidia will reduce its price by $100 from the $900 stated list price.

Early pre-orders indicate that the card won’t likely sell for that amount, and its performance is insufficient to rank among the greatest graphics cards. Although the RTX 4070 Ti has some positive aspects, including DLSS 3 and great heat management, it is overpriced and has subpar raw performance.

The RTX 4090 easily outperforms prior-generation models in terms of technology and performance. With considerable upgrades to all of the core hardware, significantly faster clock rates, and cutting-edge technology like DLSS 3, a new standard has been set, albeit at a very expensive cost.

The top model of Nvidia’s Ada Lovelace architecture costs $1,599. Actually, it only amounts to $100 more than the RTX 3090 at launch, and if the card can deliver performance that even comes close to what Nvidia claims—between 2 and 4 times that of an RTX 3090 Ti—there will undoubtedly be buyers prepared to spend that price.

At least at 1440p and 4K, the RTX 4090 is currently seated atop the GPU benchmark hierarchy throne. It now ranks among the top graphics cards for those seeking the fastest GPU available, price considerations aside.

The NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti will have 12 GB of GDDR6X memory and 7680 CUDA cores running at 2.61 GHz. This indicates that a theoretical peak FP32 throughput of 40.01 TFLOPs is what you are dealing with.

Because of its poor price point and low TFLOPs/$ ratio, the RTX 4080 did not do well at all. In contrast, the RTX 4090 sold like hotcakes. The RTX 4070 Ti should sell significantly better because it is much closer to the value claim that the RTX 4090 made. Although it may not be the cost that gamers had hoped for, it is undoubtedly much better than what has been available on the market for years and should allow NVIDIA and AMD to begin re-establishing contact with their primary clientele – gamers.
