A new rumor swirling around suggests the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti’s GPU chip is already planned for use. RTX 4080 12GB – will be 30% smaller than the chip found in the previous generation RTX 3070 Ti and 50% smaller than the AD102 chip used by the RTX 3070 Ti. RTX 4090.
this is coming MEGAsizeGPU Whoever posted on Twitter an image of the incredibly small AD104 chip with an area of 296mm^2. The RTX 4070 Ti will feature the AD104 chip paired with 12GB of GDDR6X memory and will allegedly launch in early January with a price tag of $899. now canceled RTX4080 12GB.
That price tag is still pretty steep – especially considering it’s AMD’s flagship RX 7000 cards Peak at $999. Looking at the configuration difference between the RTX 4090 (which uses the AD102) and the RTX 4070 Ti (which is supposed to use an AD104 chip), there are some pretty big differences in renderer capabilities.
For example, the shader unit count on the RTX 4090 is 18432, which is expected for a contemporary high-end graphics card. The RTX 4070 Ti, on the other hand, has 7680 shaders, which is less than half of the RTX 4090 and yet this significant difference is not reflected in the GPU prices.
Analysis: Smaller cards are good, cheaper cards are better
If the rumors are true, the RTX 4070 Ti could be a breath of fresh air for smaller PC builders. The RTX 40 series has faced a lot of criticism, not only because of its high price, but also because of the massive physical size of the GPUs currently available that barely fit in some PC cases.
This forces users to bend the power cable at horrendous angles to fit the side panels of their case, and this is suspected to be one of the reasons. current cable meltdown debacle Nvidia finds itself involved.
The smaller GPU die will likely mean less overall heat generation, which means cards can be built smaller – we’ll likely see some dual-fan models as opposed to the almost universally three-fan RTX 4080 and 4090 cards from third-party vendors. This is definitely a step in the right direction; With a claimed maximum power draw of 300 W, the AD104 is far less power hungry than the flagship AD102.
But all the troubles that come with it ‘initialize’ and rename If performance and price aren’t reflected in a consumer-friendly way, the RTX 4070 Ti might seem a bit pointless. If this new GPU launches at the original $899 MSRP, the more compact dimensions won’t be enough to make it worthy of our recommendation.
