The list price of the RTX 4070 Ti is in line with the RTX 4090, in terms of perf/$ and GB/$. It's actually the RTX 4080 (16 GB) that's overpriced by at least $100. ...or so I thought, until I saw the deep learning benchmarks that rank its perf/$ exactly inline with the other two. Still, that it's not selling as well as the others is a bit telling.Nvidia clearly intended to charge more for their consumer line-up this gen until the botched RTX 4080 12GB bit them in the back side cutting into what they had intended to charge for the part.
It didn't unlaunch - they just rebranded it the RTX 4070 Ti.if the 4080 12GB hadn't unlaunched,
I think the mining boom gave them a distorted sense of what people were willing to pay for gaming cards. Then, they designed GPUs to higher price points than before, leaving them little room to cut prices. Then, along came ChatGPT, Stable Diffusion, etc. and saved their bacon.it appears like Nvidia is intent on pissing off their gaming base all the same.
