NVIDIA RTX 4070 vs 4070 Ti: 30 Benchmarks at 1080p and 1440p [Updated Jan 2024]

The GeForce RTX 4070 is NVIDIA’s most popular 40-series card, often topping sales and beating its cheaper Radeon rivals. The RTX 4070 Ti is relatively less favored but sells better than the RTX 4080. It was launched a year ago on the 5th of January at an MSRP of $799. It’s the same as the previously “unlaunched” RTX 4080 12GB. The RTX 4070 was released on the 13th of April at an MSRP of $599.

The GeForce RTX 4070 and 4070 Ti both leverage the AD104 GPU. The latter uses the fully enabled die, while the former cuts it down by 20-25%. The memory and bus are the same, at 12GB GDDR6X and 192-bit, and the primary difference boils down to the shader configuration. The RTX 4070 Ti packs 7,680 cores, up from 5,888 on the 4070. The clocks are also higher on the Ti, boosting to 2,610MHz, up from 2,475MHz on the base 4070.

The RTX 4070 Ti is backed by 48MB of L2 cache, while the 4070 features a 36MB pool. Overall, you’re getting 23% more shaders, 25% more cache, and 20% more ROPs (Rasterizers) with the $799 Ti card. With the upcoming release of the RTX 4070 Super and 4070 Ti Super, the 4070 is slated to get a price cut (to $549?) while the 4070 Ti will be discontinued.

NVIDIA RTX 4070 vs. 4070 Ti 1080p Benchmarks

At 1080p resolution, both GPUs deliver ample performance even at the highest quality graphics preset. Starting with “A Plague Tale,” we see the RTX 4070 Ti establish a lead of roughly 20% over the RTX 4070.

The RTX 4070 nets an average of 88 FPS, while the RTX 4070 Ti manages 106 FPS. Assassins’ Creed and Cyberpunk 2077 are 17% faster on the RTX 4070 Ti than the RTX 4070. In the former, the RTX 4070 posts an average of 154 FPS, while the RTX 4070 Ti averages 180 FPS.

In CD Projekt Red’s blockbuster, the 4070 runs at an average of 128.8 FPS, preceded by the 4070 Ti with 152.6 FPS.

Dying Light 2 is nearly 50% faster on the RTX 4070 Ti, as the 4070 averages 140.8 FPS with a 1% low average of 67 FPS. The former nets 210 FPS with lows of 83 FPS.

F1 2022 doesn’t run well on NVIDIA GPUs, and it shows. The RTX 4070 and 4070 Ti perform roughly the same, with averages of 240 FPS and 246 FPS, respectively. Hitman 3 is another AMD partner title with a slim 8% lead for the latter and similar lows.

In IOI’s stealth thriller, the RTX 4070 musters an average of 189 FPS, while the 4070 Ti manages 205 FPS.

Hogwarts Legacy averages 118.5 FPS on the RTX 4070, conferring a lead of 11% to the 4070 Ti, which averages 132 FPS. The lows stay in line with the average. Shadow of the Tomb Raider extends the lead to 15% with notably higher average lows for the RTX 4070 Ti.

The RTX 4070 nets 228 FPS, while the RTX 4070 Ti stays ahead with an average of 262.5 FPS.

The Callisto Protocol maintains the trend of slim deltas, while in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, the RTX 4070 Ti is 28% faster than the 4070, on average. In Callisto, the RTX 4070 yields 132.5 FPS, while the 4070 Ti posts 148 FPS.

In the Borderlands spin-off, the RTX 4070 produces an average of 163 FPS, a fair bit slower than the 208 FPS posted by the 4070 Ti.

These benchmarks show that the GeForce RTX 4070 is better suited for 1080p gaming than the 4070 Ti. While the Ti is faster, the gains are nominal at this resolution, and often not worth the additional $200.
