PNY has confirmed the change from the Geforce RTX 4080 12 GiB to the RTX 4070 Ti with the latest leaks. The manufacturer’s two models correspond exactly to the technical data that Nvidia had promised for the small RTX 4080. Therefore, read more about the new models of the RTX 4070 Ti below.
The introduction of the Geforce RTX 4080 was a bit problematic from the start. Apart from the high price of the regular Geforce RTX 4080 with 16 GiB graphics memory, Nvidia is also planning a model with 12 GiB graphics memory and significantly fewer execution units than the normal Geforce RTX 4080 with AD103 chip. In addition, there was the smaller AD104 chip and a high rumored price. Probably as a reaction to the clear and negative feedback from the community, Nvidia then decided not to publish this card.

At least not under the name Geforce RTX 4080. In the rumor mill there were options and possible names like the Geforce RTX 4070 or the Geforce RTX 4070 Ti. The latter seems to be more likely and is underpinned by new leaks. PNY seems to want to launch two custom models of the Geforce RTX 4070 Ti, both of which have the same specifications as the former Geforce RTX 4080 12 GiB.
You have the same 7,680 CUDA cores, GDDR6X memory, and base and boost clock speeds of 2,310 and 2,610 MHz, respectively. PNY seems to have planned the RTX 4070 Ti XLR8 Verto and the RTX 4070 Ti Verto. The two cards have triple fan coolers and measure three or 3.3 slots in the case of the XLR8 variant. The AD104 GPU can be clearly seen on the renderings and the controversial 12VHPWR connection is also used again.
PNY had already published the specifications shortly before Nvidia canceled the “small” RTX 4080. According to previous information, the new models correspond exactly to the custom designs of the RTX 4080 shown two months ago and should only have been renamed. According to the current rumor, Nvidia will launch the new RTX 4070 Ti on January 5th. want to introduce and price them for less than the original MSRP of $899.
