Background: RTX 4080 12GB becomes RTX 4070 Ti
Calendar week 45 had some exciting hardware facts about server products from AMD and Intel in store, and the short message portal Twitter made further headlines due to mass layoffs after the Musk takeover. True to our name, however, the focus is on PC gaming news, especially graphics cards. Here is news about Nvidia’s crashed Geforce RTX 4080 12GB. This model was supposed to go on sale alongside the Geforce RTX 4080 16GB next week, but was put on hold by Nvidia in a one-off discontinuation. Already on the day of the presentation, criticism was voiced around the world that the card was neither named customer-friendly nor powerful enough for an “80s”. Up to 30 percent difference between two “RTX 4080” models, that was simply too much of a good thing for many observers.
The well-known leaker kopite7kimi has now found out that the third largest Ada graphics card will soon be relaunched as the Geforce RTX 4070 Ti. A relaunch as a Geforce RTX 4070 (Non-Ti) was considered unlikely because the AD104 built into the RTX 4080 12GB would probably have had to be artificially restricted in order not to be too powerful for the GPU class. It can be assumed that Nvidia and the board partners want to invest as little effort as possible in order to bring the withdrawn 4080-12GB cards back onto the market. A release of the Geforce RTX 4070 Ti in January 2023 with an announcement at the IT trade fair CES at the beginning of the new year is considered likely. Read bluntly in the picture gallery what the PCGH team thinks of the RTX 4080 12GB Geforce RTX 4070 Ti. And what do you think of that, dear readers? Discuss with us!
