With reasonable 32.6 x 150 x 60 mm dimensions, this card appears big right away. You should first determine whether it will fit in your PC case. The Phoenix GS (Golden Sample) weighs under 2 kilogrammes, but it is a little gadget with a length of ~33 cm.
For this review, we use an AIB partner card. GeForce RTX 4070 Ti has 12 GB of GDDR6X memory that works at 21 Gbps offering 504 GB/sec of memory bandwidth. On the following pages, we will go into more detail about the product's features.
The ADA series will replace the Ampere lineup, which will be phased out of the market as these cards are priced similarly but are significantly quicker. Where GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was equipped with 10240 stream/Shader processors, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti kicks in at 7680 shading cores whilst being significantly faster. Temperatures are unlikely to be an issue, and thanks to the backplate and metal anti-bending plate, the card sags just slightly despite weighing little under 2kg. The outside shell is primarily comprised of plastic, but it looks well in that dark motif.
NVIDIA is the exclusive provider of power adapters included with RTX 40-series graphics cards, whether the Founders Edition or custom-designed boards by partners. The 12VHPWR connector has been under much scrutiny as of late; in some isolated cases, it overheated and melted. It has a lot to do with cable bending too close to the connector, user installation and perhaps poor quality control of these power connectors. We find it extremely hard to get these connectors even hot.
Despite conforming to PCIe Gen 5 specifications, the GeForce RTX 4000 series employs a PCIe Gen 4.0 x16 host interface. GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is equipped with 12 Gigabytes of GDDR6X memory, which operates at 21 Gbps (effective data rate). This provides a substantial amount of volume and bandwidth combined it's 192-bit wide memory bus.
