Nvidia have announced the launch of their latest graphics card, the RTX 4070 Ti.

The leaked specs appeared over the new year's weekend but the page was quickly taken down prior to formal announcement.

This GPU promises to be more powerful than the RTX 3090Ti, the most recent counterpart. The new model boasts 7,680 CUDA cores as well as a 2.61Ghz boost clock and 12gb of memory.

Alongside this, NVIDIA announced a new range of laptop based RTX 40-series as well as an RTX 4080 tier for GeForce Now, Nvidia's cloud service.

This graphical powerhouse attracted some controversy in the past, as it was originally titled RTX 4080 12GB, which caused some misunderstanding amongst consumers. It transpired that the RTX 4080 18GB was the most powerful 4080, whilst the 12gb version offered less VRAM and a different GPU chip, thereby making the 12GB model a misnomer.

As a result, it was promised that the 12GB version would be unlaunched and rebranded for a later date.

The newly titled 4070 Ti promises to perform triple the previous models capabilities, but at almost half the power output.

This latest instalment in the NVIDIA family showcases another example of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace Architecture. This technology has afforded not only an enormous leap in performance but also that in efficiency.

It will be available from January 5th for $799, which equates to around £666.
