The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti (AKA 4080 12GB) aims for January

The market debut of the RTX4080 16GB is still a few days away, but Rumors are already beginning to arrive about the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, which would be the next model in the RTX 40 series to hit the market. This would confirm NVIDIA’s strategy of bringing the models of this family to market starting with the top of the range and then descending the steps one by one. Thus, if you are one of the people who expect the cheapest options, that is, the RTX 4060 and RTX 4050, except for surprise, I am afraid that you will still have to wait a few months.

On the other hand, and as you will surely remember, despite initially NVIDIA announced two models of RTX 4080, 16GB and 12GB, which also differed in the integrated GPU, shortly after the company decided to cancel the launch of the 12GB model, arguing that the chosen names had generated some confusion among users. A point in which I agree, and in which I believe that NVIDIA acted correctly, after identifying a potential problem that would have grown exponentially if both versions had reached the market.

Now, and the company also clarified this point in its official statement, the nomenclature was the only problem with the RTX 4080 12GB, so from the first moment it was clear that the model would undergo a name change and that its launch It would be a few months late. And now, as we can read in Wccftech, it seems that the plans are becoming clearer, and that thewhat was going to be the RTX 4080 12GB will finally be the RTX 4070 Tiwhich is certainly much more appropriate.

Let’s remember its technical specifications, compared to the RTX 4080 16GB:

As for dates, There are more and more voices that point out that his debut will take place in January. Something that also makes sense not only because of what was indicated at the beginning, but also because the main manufacturers had already advanced in their production of the canceled-renamed model, so it is conceivable that they do not want to delay too much time the sale of all the units that have already been produced, in addition to all those that are yet to come.

And if we talk about prices, the initial plans were market the RTX 4080 12GB with a reference price of $899. Will it remain at that same amount when it is released as the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti? That is, right now, the million dollar question.
