The rtx 4070 ti isn’t exactly Nvidia’s flagship card but it’s also not a bad performer. The GPU is well suited for 1440p gaming with some occasional 4K, and it can push close to 60fps with ray tracing shenanigans enabled in games like Cyberpunk 2077. Its 12gb of VRAM will eventually be a bit of an issue but for now the performance it can offer is pretty good considering the price point.
While it’s still not as good as a dedicated GPU, the RTX 4070 Ti is a very decent option for content creation work as well. It should be able to handle most tasks, and even with a modest 1080p monitor you’ll be able to hit that 60fps target. The only real problem I can see with the RTX 4070 Ti is its lack of GDDR6 memory which is why I wouldn’t recommend it for video editing or other demanding creative work.
I know it’s a little odd pitting something with a 70-series badge against AMD’s top cards of the moment, but until Nvidia starts putting real model numbers on its GPUs I guess this is what we’ll have to do. The RTX 4070 Ti is faster than the Radeon 7900 XT in most games and even manages to pull ahead of it in some cases. It consumes less power as well, with the 4070 Ti consuming just 269 watts in our test of Hitman 3, while the older card consumed 427 watts.
