Three companies are beginning to announce the unannounced custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards over the last few days, with one company confirming orders for their new products. Colorful, ELSA and ZOTAC are all announcing the new 12GB custom RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards, with Colorful starting to sell their GPUs before the official launch date of tomorrow during the NVIDIA press conference at CES 2023.
Colorful, ELSA and ZOTAC reveal new custom GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12 GB graphics cards before the embargo has lifted
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is originally the RTX 4080 12 GB graphics card that the company canceled towards the end of last year. The delay in the release was due to partners fulfilling their inventory to prepare for launch. The custom RTX 4070 Ti 12 GB specifications are similar in each manufacturer, but the designs vary depending on the brand.
First up is Colorful, with a whopping five RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards — one is from their BattleAx line, while the other four are speculated to be from the iGame series. Additionally, the company plans to release a Neptune variant with water cooling added to the card.
The pricing of the new Colorful RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards is listed below:
- Colorful BattleAx: ¥6500
- Colorful iGame Advanced (OC): ¥6999
- Colorful iGame Neptune: ¥6999
- Colorful iGame Ultra: varies between ¥6650 to ¥6700
Colorful's custom GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will only see South Asian marketplaces and will not see a global release.
Next up is ELSA, which published the landing page on its site for the new ELSA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti ERAZOR X OC Edition. The page has the below image posted on the website but is also published before the official embargo has lifted. The new GPU does not have any specifications available to view. Still, it does provide the dual-slot size to provide optimized cooling, integrated GDDR6X memory to increase the bandwidth twice as much as previous GDDR6 memory, and a triple-fan design with a simplistic chassis, which the company advertises that installation will be easier for the consumer and would fit most compatible cases.
Performance for the new ELSA RTX 4070 Ti ERAZOR OC GPU was unearthed earlier in 2022, and reports that the new GPU will be up to thirty-five percent higher in performance compared to the lower-end RTX 30 series GPUs, except for the RTX 3090 Ti, which is rumored to be similar in performance.
Last up is ZOTAC and its custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12 GB AMP Extreme AIRO, X-Gaming, and the Apocalypse OC GPUs, with only the AMP Extreme AIRO seeing a global release. The ZOTAC leaks show us more information than the other competing brands. For instance, the AMP Extreme AIRO 12 GB graphics card offers 7680 CUDA cores, GDDR6X memory, and a default memory bandwidth of 285W with a boost of up to 366W while in the GPU's "Performance" setting.
The Apocalypse OC and X-Gaming are slated to boost as high as 330W and 314W, respectively. Because the TDP on the three products from ZOTAC is higher than the NVIDIA reference card specifications, the cards will offer more elevated and enhanced performance, close to 90 MHz higher, except for the ZOTAC X-Gaming GPU, which will only be thirty percent higher than NVIDIA.
The prices for the three custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards from ZOTAC are listed below:
- ZOTAC AMP AIRO: ¥7299
- ZOTAC Apocalypse: ¥6699
- ZOTAC X-Gaming: ¥6299
ZOTAC is coming out of its typical designs with the X-Gaming model, as it is thicker thanks to the 12VHPWR connector and will have a bright light blue colorway with various imagery.
We should find out more tomorrow during the CES 2023 conference when NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel, along with over 2000 other companies, will be showing products released or in production as of 2023.
