New regulatory filings suggest that NVIDIA is working toward launching the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti which will presumably be the rebranded RTX 4080 12GB "unlaunched" last month.
New regulatory filings suggest that NVIDIA's scrapped GeForce RTX 4080 12GB might return as GeForce RTX 4070 Ti.
As noticed by VideoCardz, Taiwanese manufacturer Gigabyte certified several new graphics cards with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) including a GeForce RTX 4070 Ti based on NVIDIA GPU.
The company's application seemingly confirms NVIDIA's plans for the imminent release of the RTX 4070 Ti line. Insiders believe that the company will introduce video cards at the CES trade show, which will be held in early January 2023.
Gigabyte did not specify the characteristics of video cards in the application. The price of the graphics card is also currently unknown, however, earlier, the Chinese press reported that it might cost as much as 7,199 RMB (about $1,000). Still, it's worth noting that other insiders have not yet confirmed this information.
A number of media representatives believe that RTX 4070 Ti is, in fact, a rebranded RTX 4080 12GB, which was unexpectedly "unlaunched" by NVIDIA last month. At the time, NVIDIA stated that this decision was related to the fact that the graphics card was "not named right" which is why it was delayed. The company also said this model will be released under a different name to avoid confusion with the 16GB version of the RTX 4080.
