Palit has announced the launch of two new graphics cards, based on the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Ti SKUs. It’s been quite some time since Palit came out with a JetStream GPU – the last one was the RTX 3070 model, which was released over two years ago. Although the company has added newer models such as GamingPro and GameRock to their portfolio, the JetStream GPUs used to be known for their powerful performance, and it seems like this reputation is unlikely to change anytime soon.
The latest JetStream graphics cards can now be viewed as a more affordable option, and it’s not without reason. These cards don’t come equipped with RGB lighting, and they haven’t been factory-overclocked either. It’s possible that we may see overclocked models being released in the future, but at this point in time, no such models have been announced.
Today, the company unveiled two new SKUs – the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Ti, which look nearly identical. This is because the AD103 and AD104 GPUs are pin-compatible, which means that board partners can launch both SKUs with very little changes to the design. Additionally, the power characteristics of both SKUs are quite similar, with power ranging from 320W to 285W, which means that the thermal design is well-suited for both SKUs.
According to official information, the RTX 40 JetStream GPUs are 3.1 slots high (63.5 mm) and 329 mm long. While it’s not the most compact card available, it’s probably better to have three fans instead of two for a 300W GPU. It is also possible that dual-fan models may be released later for the RTX 4070 non-Ti/RTX 4060 series, but this is just speculation for now. As of yet, Palit has not disclosed any pricing details for their JetStream RTX 40 cards.
