According to many reports, the price of the RTX 4070 Ti should be at least 10% lower than that of the canceled RTX 4080 12GB. NVIDIA is rumored to have announced the price of RTX 4070 Ti, the upcoming high-end RTX 40 desktop GPU that will be released next 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 seems, a new price tag as well.
Wccftech reports that NVIDIA informed 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 refers to the same pricing. Multiple sites, including Expreview and BoardChannels, are now reporting that the RTX 4070 Ti is shipping 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 barely seen these days). The RTX 4070 Ti has half the memory (12 GB GDDR6X), but the core CUDA specs are significantly lower (7680 vs. 16384). The main issue with the MSRP of the RTX 4070 Ti is that there is no Founders Edition, so getting this card from MSRP is subject to custom model availability. At launch, NVIDIA always “asks” board partners to offer at least a few non-OC versions against MSRP; however, since these tickets often sell out extremely quickly, the MSRP may not last very long.
NVIDIA and AICs had another two months to build additional stock, so if these cards sell out, there’s a serious supply problem.
