Nvidia’s RTX 4070 Ti is a good upgrade from the older RTX 3090 Ti, with its Ada Lovelace architecture and DLSS 3.0, it offers better performance than its predecessor. It can play games at a higher resolution without the graphics card being put under too much strain and its lower power draw means it can run cooler.
The latest mid-range GPU from Nvidia is a decent upgrade for any desktop PC. It’s rated to produce 40.1 TFLOPS in single-precision FP32 compute and should be on par with the older RTX 3090 Ti. However, the newer card is significantly more efficient and has a lower TDP at only 226W.
A leaked benchmark score from Octanebench (via Laptopvideo2go via Videocardz) shows the RTX 4070 Ti beating out the previous-generation flagship in a render test. It scored 725 points, compared to 688 from the RTX 3090 Ti. The difference may not seem huge, but it is a solid 5% increase in performance. It should be noted that the benchmark scores are highly sensitive to driver optimizations and only have a partial correlation with the theoretical maximum FP32 performance.
This makes the RTX 4070 Ti a compelling upgrade for anyone who wants to enjoy the benefits of ray tracing in the latest titles. It will also allow for the best possible frame rates in 4K resolution gaming. As a bonus, it will take up less space in your computer case than both the RTX 3090 Ti and the RTX 4080, which are both triple-slot behemoths.
