Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti review: a next-gen GPU that's worth the asking price?

From Digital Foundry: "The next generation GPUs from Nvidia - and, as it turns out, AMD - have had a problem: pricing, or rather relative pricing. The issue is that with the Radeon RX 6800 XT and more so the GeForce RTX 3080, we've had GPUs that struck an excellent balance between price vs performance. Both were cut down compared to flagship models, but each retained the bulk of their gaming prowess. For whatever reason, their recently released equivalents - RTX 4080 and RX 7900 XT - have not been able to match the same sweetspot in 'frames for the dollar'. The new RTX 4070 Ti goes some way to addressing this, but still hammers home the point that extra performance and big price reductions are things of the past.

That said, the renamed RTX 4080 12GB does finally address the value challenge of the RTX 3080 to a certain extent. With a confirmed MSRP of $799/£799 - $100/£150 up on the RTX 3080 - you are getting value from the extra cash. Performance of the card is typically in RTX 3090 to RTX 3090 Ti territory. You're getting an extra two gigabytes of framebuffer memory. On top of that, there's DLSS 3, which hasn't yet established itself as the game-changer that DLSS 2 is, but is swiftly becoming very useful - game-changingly so in the case of The Witcher 3: Complete Edition."

If you're interested I cant recommend the Gamers Nexus review enough:

Too bad the guy has a bit of an attitude problem. Reminds me a little of the guy who does MLID, arrogant.

You're getting downvoted, but I agree. He's kinda arrogant. I once wrote a comment on his YouTube video, which he actually responded to. He misunderstood it and gave me a very flippant response. I couldn't in good faith stay subscribed to him after that.

While I generally think that GamersNexus is pretty much the gold standard in the PC space for almost everything, one thing I dont like about their GPU reviews is their game selection for benchmarks and limited coverage in them for RT and upscaling , which is understandable to a degree based on the many different configurations, but still feels like they really need to start updating their methodology since both things are really just gonna get even more prevalent.

So while there are definitely aspects that GN goes more in depth, for the actual game performance ans suite of games benchmarked, I kind of prefer the DF reviews

Hard to consider anything in the 4000 series "worth the asking price" unless you've got money to burn. The 3000 series was priced right at MSRP, but there wasn't enough supply back then to keep them on store shelves (in combination with world events and aftermarket greed). But now there's a plenty of supply and Nvidia decides it's time to charge what the scalpers were asking for the 3000 cards for the 4000s? Forget it. I'll be waiting to see what they do with the 5000s in a year or two and hoping they go back to the 3000 series MSRP tiers.

The entire 4000 series is one big disgusting scam.

none of the newer GPUs from both nVidia and AMD are worth their asking price! if this is going to be the norm, goodbye and RIP budget PC gaming I guess as far as new components are concerned. budget PC gaming will now be relegated only to used parts.

Hopefully this will not be the norm, think sales have not been stellar on the new GPU's as they are readily available everywhere unlike the 30 series (at MRP) for example.
