A leak of Colorful’s own GeForce RTX 4070 Ti custom graphics card has been released in advance of the product’s availability the following month.
It Appears to Be a GeForce RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe Custom Graphics Card, and its Specifications Have Been Verified.
The product page for Colorful’s GeForce RTX 4070 Ti BattleAx Deluxe graphics card went up yesterday after the company decided to make it public. The product page not only provided us with our first glance at the graphics card but also verified the specifications that we have heard over the past several months. The card is, in fact, nothing more than a rebranded version of the GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB.
The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card that comes in the Colorful BattleAx Deluxe flavor has a cooler with three fans and three slots, and it goes by the name Colorful BattleAx Deluxe. Both the card’s heatsink and its backplate extend much beyond the PCB in their respective lengths. The heatsink on the card is notably bulky.
The card will make use of a particular printed circuit board (PCB), which will have a power input consisting of a single 16-pin connector and will have a thermal design power (TDP) of 285 watts. Because Colorful has specified the same reference base speed of 2310 MHz for the card, we may also presume it has a boost clock of 2610 MHz unless this particular edition has an overclocking BIOS.
Although Colorful does not list any additional information, such as a launch date or pricing, we are aware that the card will be available for purchase on January 5th, as this was something that we had already confirmed and also something that we received confirmation of from an Italian retailer not too long ago.
“Officially Licensed” Specifications for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12 GB (Now Cancelled)
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will feature the “Ada Lovelace” AD104-400 GPU configuration. This full-fat SKU will have 7,680 cores or 60 SMs active, making it the most potent card version.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) will have 48 MB of L2 cache and a 192-bit bus interface. Because of these capabilities, we will have access to up to 12 GB of GDDR6X capacity. It is reported that the memory is operating at a rate of 21 Gbps, which results in a memory bandwidth of 504 GB/s. It has been reported that the card works at a boost clock of 2610 MHz, although the actual peak frequency will be greater.
- The “Official” Thermal Design Power of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12 GB is 285W.
- “Official” Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 290 Watts for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 8 GB
The TBP will now have a power rating of 285 watts, which is a drop of 35 watts when compared to the RTX 3080 10 GB variant and a loss of 5 watts when compared to the RTX 3070 Ti. It is anticipated that the new graphics card will provide higher performance than the RTX 3080. Still, because its specifications will be inferior to those of the 4080 16 GB, there will be a significant performance gap of approximately 30–40% between the two models.
The most crucial question is whether or not NVIDIA will keep the price of its graphics card at $899 in the United States or whether or not it will reduce the cost somewhat. Based on the benchmark results, we are aware that the GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB was comparable to the RTX 3090 Ti, and in a few instances, it was even quicker when RT or DLSS was utilized.
AMD claims that the RX 7900 XT will deliver performance gains of between 40 and 50 percent over its predecessor, the 6950 XT, and will cost $899 in the United States. Therefore, there is going to be fierce competition between the two cards. On the other hand, AMD will be releasing its cards a few weeks sooner in December, giving them a competitive advantage in this regard.
