Is the RTX 4070 Ti Better Than the 3090?

The RTX 4070 Ti is a mid-range graphics card released by Nvidia. It is a successor to the previous generation RTX 3070 and comes with a lot of new technology including support for ray tracing, deep learning supersampling (DLSS), and more. The performance of the RTX 4070 Ti is roughly on par with the last generation’s flagship RTX 2070. This is a bit disappointing since Nvidia originally claimed the RTX 4070 Ti would be up to 3.5x faster than the RTX 3070 when using DLSS.

However, the actual performance of the RTX 4070 Ti varies depending on the game you play and how well it is optimized for that particular GPU. In many cases, it is significantly faster than the RTX 3070. According to TechPowerUp, it is able to deliver a respectable 4K gaming experience while providing high frame rates at lower resolutions.

In addition, the RTX 4070 Ti is a more power efficient card compared to the RTX 3070. It uses a lower TDP of 285W while delivering the same 3DMark score.

The RTX 4070 Ti also outperforms the RTX 3090 in games that use DLSS and ray tracing. In the Cyberpunk 2077 benchmark with DLSS enabled, it is able to match and sometimes beat the last generation’s top end GPU at 1440p. However, it suffers from memory bus width limitations at higher resolutions. The RTX 4070 Ti is also significantly faster than the RTX 3070 in 3DMark Fire Strike, which is a DirectX 11 benchmark that uses two separate tests to tax the graphics card. The first test shows a humanoid fighting a fiery creature that is seemingly made of lava while the second test features a spaceship attacking an unknown planet.
