Out tomorrow, January fifth, at a beginning worth of £799 / $799, Nvidia say it is quicker than their earlier flagship, the RTX 3090 Ti, and can “max out” 1440p displays.

In phrases of specs, you are 12GB of GDDR6X reminiscence, a lift clock pace of two.61GHz, 7680 CUDA cores, in addition to DLSS 3 help. Its energy utilization additionally sits at 285W, however Nvidia suggest you pair it with a 700W PSU.

Of course, when you’ve been following the drama over Nvidia’s cancelled 12GB RTX 4080 graphics card, these specs will all look intimately acquainted – and that is as a result of they’re. They’re precisely the identical as that cancelled RTX 4080 variant, suggesting that Nvidia have certainly simply rebadged the “unlaunched” GPU because the RTX 4070 Ti.

But Nvidia ended up cancelling the cardboard a couple of month earlier than it was meant to launch, citing that “it isn’t named proper” and that “having two GPUs with the 4080 designation is complicated”, so within the bin it went. Or so we thought. Instead, it is seemingly now resurfaced because the RTX 4070 Ti, which is kind of what {hardware} editor James anticipated they’d do on the finish of final 12 months.

The primary upshot of this barely protracted renaming course of is that the ensuing RTX 4070 Ti is now fairly a bit cheaper than what it was going to be initially, with associate playing cards beginning at £799 / $799. Don’t get me unsuitable, that is nonetheless a large chunk of change, however it’s at the least a smidge higher than the 12GB RTX 4080’s proposed launch worth of £949 / $899 (which is a very good end up for us people within the UK, I would add).

Hardware ed James will little doubt be placing the RTX 4070 Ti by way of its paces very quickly, so you’ll see whether or not it is well worth the cash within the coming weeks.
