Nvidia’s RTX 4070 Ti has been spotted in an online profile of multiple models from Gigabyte, which suggests we could see the graphics card released soon enough, as previous rumors have indicated.
Gigabyte has submitted various RTX 4070 Ti models to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), as reported by @harukaze5719, a regular leaker on Twitter (via Cards video (Opens in a new tab)), and this usually happens shortly before the products are launched.

In theory, then, we should see those graphics cards emerging in the near future, as mentioned. Interestingly, at the same time, Gigabyte has also introduced Radeon RX 7900 models with EEC as well, but we know that’s coming (on December 13th, though we’re not sure if third-party cards will be on shelves right from the start) .
Notably, Gigabyte is releasing two models of vanilla reference boards, so these could be the first to arrive if The rumor mill is right (Though the final word on the grapevine is that some dedicated RX 7900 models may already be available out of the gate, just not reference cards, which are the ones built to AMD’s default core specifications.)
Analysis: The lower-tier RTX 4080 is back — but how will it be priced?
This is another strong hint that Nvidia has an RTX 4070 Ti in the pipeline for the near future, and the fact that filings were made at the same time as the RX 79000 models — due next month — suggests a release date you might marry with what. Previous speculation indicated: January 5th. This will be a CES launch, of course, so we’ll see…
Remember, it should come as no surprise that Nvidia is ready to go when it remembers that the The RTX 4080 12GB has been cancelled, and this is supposed to be the return of that GPU in a different guise (or that’s the theory, anyway). In other words, everything was already in place for this launch, more or less.
The key to the RTX 4070 Ti will naturally be the price. How different is Nvidia from the boxed RTX 4080 12GB, which has an MSRP of $899 in the US? Obviously it should be cheaper than this, but how far will Team Green go?
Nvidia will take into account the reaction to the expensive RTX 4080 16GB, which was clearly unpopular GPU due to the price / performance ratio? (Makes RTX 4090 It looks like a high-end graphics card you can use in no uncertain terms, if you can stomach what is in some cases a little extra expense, depending on the exact models you’re comparing).
We can probably hope for $699 MSRP in the US for the 4070TN, but the reality is given Nvidia’s previous pricing figure, it’ll likely come out with a slightly higher recommended price than this; Maybe $749, or even $799. Time will tell, but it would be nice to see Team Green give consumers some relief in the higher end GPU market at this point.
