Two new PNY graphics cards were leaked last night — the PNY XLR8 GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and PNY Stealth Mode GeForce RTX 4070 Ti — along with specifications for each. The data shows that both cards are identical to the RTX 4080 12GB GPU the company NVIDIA pulled before launch. This is the only company that previously published its list of specifications for the RTX 4080 12GB before NVIDIA canceled the graphics card from existence.
PNY Technology is creating two RTX 4070 Ti Graphics Cards using identical specs to the missing RTX 4080 12 GB from NVIDIA
PNY's new SKU is the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture with a core clock of 2310 MHz and boosted to 2610 MHz, along with 12GB GDDR6X 192-bit onboard memory, 7680 CUDA cores, and memory bandwidth speeds of 504 GB/s. This data collection confirms that NVIDIA only rebranded the RTX 4080 12GB graphics card to the RTX 4070 Ti GPU. But is NVIDIA trying to fool its consumers? Not really.
The original NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 12GB graphics card performed poorly for the level that the graphics card was intended for. NVIDIA recognized this and decided it would be best to remove the card from the series with the intent to rename the card in the future. Placing it in the next SKU tier down, the RTX 4070 Ti fits the intention of the graphics card and how well it performs.
PNY will launch the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti XLR8 VERTO and VERTO graphics cards. The two cards are different because the first will offer enhanced cooling seen in the RTX 4080 16GB GPU and will sell for a premium price. The second graphics card removes the RGB seen on the first and will also offer a thinner design, aiming for a three-slot configuration instead of 3.3-slots.
The above render from the website VideoCardz allows us to take note of a few additions to the new PNY graphics cards. First, there is a new compact PCB for the AD104 GPU design, with VRMs on the right side of the GPU, while the GDDR6X memory occupies space on the left and bottom of the GPU. Fewer VRMs are being used than in previous designs. We also see the 12VHPWR connector in the image.
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards are set to launch on January 5, 2023. The current pricing for the latest graphics cards is unknown. If NVIDIA is set to compete with AMD and their new GPUs, then the price point would be similar to their rival, sitting around the $800 to $900 price range.
