Contrary to previous rumors, Nvidia might not go ahead with the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti launch.
This report comes from the reputable leaker Kopite7Kimi, who has previously reported accurate specifications of the GeForce RTX 4000 lineup before release. According to the leaker, plans for the Ti variant have been canceled.
I'm afraid there won't be RTX 4090 Ti anymore. Some low-grade AD103 and AD106 chips will be another versions of RTX 4070 and 4060.

Nvidia has associated “Ti” with graphics cards offering exceptional performance bumps.
However, with the GeForce RTX 3000 series, the “Ti” variant took a downfall and did not perform as expected. Comparing the GeForce RTX 3090 and its much more expensive RTX 3090 Ti version shows little performance difference.
If Nvidia decided to launch a Ti version of the GeForce RTX 4090, it would have likely reached the 600W limit of the 12VHPWR connector. This may not have made sense for the performance increase.
The power requirement would also make the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti much more susceptible to the melting 12VHPWR connector issue that Nvidia has faced on its high-end graphics cards.
Aside from that, the 600W graphics card would need a more expensive cooler design, adding to the overall cost of an already expensive version of the GeForce RTX 4090. Nonetheless, the leaker also believes Nvidia has a few more plans for the current generation.
The PC gaming giant has no plans to launch a new architecture next year and has changed its upgrade cycle to three years. This means that the GeForce RTX 4090 will remain the best graphics card on the market for a while.
