As a mid-range, we were expecting good RTX 4070 Ti specs that ensure gaming and content creation, delivering respectable performance. Especially as Nvidia’s new Ti is going to be the first mid-range GPU released from Nvidia’s 40 series.

We also expect that the RTX 4070 Ti specs will be identical to the 12GB RTX 4080 that Nvidia ‘unlaunched’, and has repurposed in its stack as a mid-range, and not a second-tier, near the top-of-the-stack card.

With the release of the RTX 4070 Ti now confirmed, it’s a reality we will live at the beginning of January 2023, with its release date January 5th. And as the good component researchers we are, as already mentioned, we have a clear idea of the 4070 Ti specs.

Back when the RTX 4080 was to be released, Nvidia had said that it was also dropping a second 4080 but with 12GB of VRAM instead of 16GB. That didn’t suit the public because it didn’t make any sense to have those specs on a top-tier GPU. Now Nvidia has rebranded the unlaunched GPU to create the 4070 Ti.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti’s “Ada Lovelace” AD104-400 GPU configuration will have 7,680 cores enabled, 48 MB of L2 cache, and will be built under the TSMC 4N process node.

Additionally, the 4070 ti will lower the bus interface to 192-bit which is the main reason why the memory size is 12GB instead of the 16GB of the 4080. Furthermore, the memory will be operating at 21 Gbps for fast bandwidth of 504 GB/s.

RTX 4070 Ti Expected Performance

Considering the big gap in specs between the 4070 Ti and the 4080, we can expect a decrease in performance. However, thanks to the 3rd generation DLSS and ray tracing cores, the 4070 Ti will easily outperform the previous 3070 ti and 3080.

With those specs and the new technology included, Nvidia has stated the 4070 Ti will offer up to 3x the performance of the RTX 3090 Ti, which is quite the claim. Nvidia says it will “max out your 1440p gaming monitor” and offer a 1.8x average gaming performance increase “while consuming almost half the power”.
