So far, the leaked specs appear to be identical to the 12GB RTX 4080, with the chip featuring 7,680 CUDA cores, a 2.61GHz boost clock, and 12GB of memory. It also says the GPU could run 4K at up to 240Hz or 8K at 60Hz with DSC and HDR, while an included chart indicates that the RTX 4070 Ti could outperform the RTX 3080 in gameplay by about 3.5 times.

In October, Nvidia was criticized for its decision to launch the 12 GB RTX 4080 GPU under the name RTX 4080 due to its stark difference from its much more powerful 16 GB counterpart. Unlike the 12GB model, the $1,199 16GB RTX 4080 features 9,728 CUDA cores, a 2.51 GHz boost clock, 780 Tensor TFLOPs, 113 RT-TFLOPs, and 49 Shader TFLOPs of power. This backlash led Nvidia to cancel the launch altogether and figure out a way to repackage the chip.
Pricing for the RTX 4070 Ti hasn’t been confirmed yet, but some rumors indicate it will be cheaper than the $899 12GB RTX 4080. According to WCftech, Nvidia can go with a lower price of $799 since the US recently pushed back the reintroduction of a Trump-era tariff on Chinese-made GPUs and other computer components, which was expected to go into effect in early 2023. Now, the 25 percent rate won’t take effect for nine months.
Nvidia is expected to launch the RTX 4070 Ti at CES in January, so we won’t have to wait long to confirm these specs and rumored pricing.
