The upper Mid-Range variant of the Nvidia RTX 40-series, known as the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, will be launched during CES 2033. The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, a rebranded variant of GeForce RTX 4080 12GB, will see the light of day on the 3rd of January.
Today, a report from a Chinese tech outlet HSW revealed that the upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will be priced around $999 or 7199 RMB in Chinese currency.

The upcoming RTX 4070 Ti was initially named GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB, with a price tag of $899. The graphics card was later unlaunched due to severe backlash from the gaming community, as the performance difference was around 20% between both variants.
Currently, Nvidia offers two variants of its RTX 40 series, including the GeForce RTX 4090 and GeForce RTX 4080. In terms of sales, Nvidia has sold over 160k units of both graphics cards, and GeForce RTX 4090 is making over 80% of that sale due to the custom variants of GeForce RTX 4080 16GB selling even higher than the MSRP of GeForce RTX 4090 FE.
So, if Nvidia decides to go with the same $999 price tag for the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti as well, it might suffer from poor sales, considering custom variants from AIB partners will sell new graphics cards close to the MSRP of GeForce RTX 4080 16GB.
Judging from the pricing on the GeForce RTX 40-series, it looks like Nvidia was quite confident with its performance and value, but after the launch of the AMD Radeon RX 7000 series situation is not quite the same, and a lot of potential buyers are now on hold from getting their hands on RTX 40-series.
What are your thoughts about the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti? Would AMD be a better choice for gaming this year?
