The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is a graphics card that was released a few months ago and is currently competing with the older NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080. Initially, NVIDIA was going to launch a slightly weaker version of the RTX 4080 called the RTX 3090, but they took all the feedback and re-released it as the RTX 4070 Ti.
This new GPU is able to deliver better performance than the old one, and it does so by using a newer architecture and improved clock speeds. It also consumes less power and operates at cooler temperatures than its predecessor.
In our testing, the RTX 4070 Ti was able to perform well in most games at 4K resolution. However, it started to struggle a bit when we tested it with more demanding games that use ray tracing or 12GB of VRAM. Nevertheless, the older NVIDIA GeForce RS 3090 is still a great choice for gaming and can be purchased at a much cheaper price.
In our test, the RTX 4070 Ti consumed around 269 watts of power to play Cyberpunk, which is quite reasonable. The RTX 3090 Ti, on the other hand, consumed a staggering 427 watts. In terms of 1% lows, the RTX 4070 Ti performed better than its older cousin, but it still fell behind with framerates of around 94 FPS. The temperature of the RTX 4070 Ti was also lower, peaking at a cool 62degC. However, the thermal performance of these two cards will vary greatly from OEM to OEM, so we can't recommend them based solely on these results.
