Nvidia is expected to release its “unlaunched” 12GB Nvidia RTX 4080 graphics card as the RTX 4070 Ti. A new leak surrounding the launch has given enthusiasts an idea of what to expect from this graphics card. Reports have suggested that Nvidia has briefly posted the specifications for its upcoming RTX 4070 Ti GPU on its website. The page however has been removed, but a Twitter user was able to capture a screenshot before it was taken down.

These leaked specifications match those of the 12GB RTX 4080 – 7,680 CUDA cores, a 2.61GHz boost clock and 12GB of memory whilst claiming that the GPU is capable of supporting 4K video at up to 240Hz and 8K at 60Hz with DSC and HDR.
The chart clearly indicates that the RTX 4070 Ti might outperform the RTX 3080 by almost 3.5 times when playing Cyberpunk 2077 in the game’s new Ray-Tracing: Overdrive mode.
Late last year, Nvidia faced criticism over its decision to launch the 12GB RTX 4080 GPU under the RTX 4080 moniker because of how much it differs from its much more powerful 16GB counterpart. This forced Nvidia to cancel its launch altogether and plan a way to repackage the chip.
There has been no pricing confirmed for the RTX 4070 Ti as yet, however some rumours suggest that it will be cheaper than the $899 (approximately R15,500) 12GB RTX 4080.
The GPU is expected to be launched by Nvidia at CES later this month.
