Two new PNY graphics cards, the PNY XLR8 GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and the PNY Stealth Mode GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, were leaked last night, along with their specifications. According to the data, both cards are identical to the RTX 4080 12GB GPU pulled by NVIDIA before launch. This is the only company that previously published the specifications for the RTX 4080 12GB before NVIDIA discontinued the graphics card.
PNY Technology is producing two RTX 4070 Ti Graphics Cards with identical specifications to NVIDIA’s missing RTX 4080 12 GB.
The NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture is used in PNY’s new SKU, which has a core clock of 2310 MHz that can be boosted to 2610 MHz, 12GB GDDR6X 192-bit onboard memory, 7680 CUDA cores, and memory bandwidth speeds of 504 GB/s. This data shows that NVIDIA only rebranded the RTX 4080 12GB graphics card to the RTX 4070 Ti GPU. But is NVIDIA trying to fool its consumers? Not at all.
The original NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 12GB graphics card performed poorly for the level for which it was designed. NVIDIA recognized this and decided to remove the card from the series to rename it later. The RTX 4070 Ti fits the intention of the graphics card and how well it performs by being placed in the next SKU tier down.
The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti XLR8 VERTO and VERTO graphics cards will be released by PNY. The two cards differ in that the first will feature enhanced cooling, as seen in the RTX 4080 16GB GPU, and will be more expensive. The second graphics card does away with the RGB seen on the first and will be thinner in design, aiming for a three-slot configuration rather than 3.3-slots.
The above render from the website VideoCardz highlights a few additions to the new PNY graphics cards. First, there is a new compact PCB for the AD104 GPU design, with VRMs on the right side of the GPU and GDDR6X memory on the left and bottom. There are fewer VRMs used than in previous designs. The image also shows the 12VHPWR connector.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards will be available on January 5, 2023. The current price of the most recent graphics cards is unknown. If NVIDIA intends to compete with AMD and their new GPUs, the price point will be similar to their rival, ranging between $800 and $900.
