NVIDIA is prepping for the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti launch with a tentative release date of Jan. 5. The chipmaker will reveal the un-launched RTX 4080 12GB during its Special Address at CES on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023, at 8 a.m. PT. Besides the pricing, not much has changed about the AD104-powered graphics card. However, NVIDIA has decided to shelve the Founders Edition variant of the RTX 4070 Ti in favor of AIC models.
We can’t say with certainty if the RTX 4080 12GB was planned without a Founders Edition or if it was axed after the un-launching, but the rebranded card definitely won’t come with one. All major AIBs, including Gigabyte, ASUS, MSI, and Galax, will be rolling out their respectively RTX 4070 Ti offerings on the 5th of January.

There’s still no confirmation on the pricing, but the $799 price tag looks more realistic. Either way, we’ll see high-end variants priced at $899 and higher, with the bulk costing $849 (speculation). The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will feature the fully enabled AD104 die packing 7,680 cores across 60 SMs and 48MB of L2 cache. It will be paired with 12GB of GDDR6X memory across a 192-bit bus powered by a TBP of 300W. You can expect a 20-30% drop in gaming performance compared to the RTX 4080 at native and a 15-20% delta with DLSS 3.
