According to many reports, the pricing of the RTX 4070 Ti should be at least 10% less than that of the canceled RTX 4080 12GB. NVIDIA is rumored to have disclosed the price of RTX 4070 Ti, the forthcoming high-end RTX 40 desktop GPU that will be released the following week. Multiple sources indicate that the card will cost $799 or 6,499 RMB.
In case you forgot, the RTX 4080 12GB card was discontinued two months ago and is now known as the RTX 4070 Ti. NVIDIA is re-releasing the same GPU with a new name and, it appears, a new price tag as well.
Wccftech reports that NVIDIA notified board partners today that the RTX 4070 Ti will cost $799, which is $100 (11%) less than the RTX 4080 12GB. Moore’s Law is Dead makes reference to the same pricing. Multiple sites, including Expreview and BoardChannels, now report that the RTX 4070 Ti will ship in China for 6499 RMB, which is 700 RMB less than the rumored MSRP for the RTX 4080 12GB (or 10% less).
The RTX 4070 Ti would be twice as affordable at $799 as the RTX 4090 MSRP (which is hardly seen these days). The RTX 4070 Ti has half the memory (12GB GDDR6X), but the CUDA core specifications are significantly lower (7680 vs. 16384). The main issue with the MSRP of the RTX 4070 Ti is that there is no Founders Edition, thus, getting this card at MSRP will rely on the availability of custom models. At launch, NVIDIA always “requests” that board partners offer at least a few non-OC versions at MSRP; however, as these cards often sell out extremely quickly, MSRP may not last very long.
NVIDIA and AICs had a further two months to create extra stock, so if these cards do sell out, there is a serious problem with the supply.
