The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti was officially released yesterday, with sales starting tomorrow. WCCF published a comprehensive review of the new graphics card, which was tested in over a dozen games.
Performance and Power Consumption of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti
According to the review, Nvidia did not cheat on the performance of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. The company promised that the card would have performance on par with the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, but with half the power consumption – and the review shows that this promise has been kept.

The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti in Gaming
When it comes to gaming, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti does tend to get relatively warm. However, the temperature will depend on the cooling system of the specific model you choose.
Power Consumption of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti
In terms of power consumption, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti tops the chart, while the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti consumes much less.
Conclusion: The Best Graphics Card for 1440p Gaming?
In conclusion, reviewers note that the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is faster than the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti by about 5-10%. As the screen resolution increases, the difference in performance decreases – due to the card’s narrow 192-bit bus and only 12 GB of native memory.
For gamers looking at 1440p resolution as their primary resolution, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is currently almost the best choice available. It supports DLSS 3 and has higher real-time ray tracing performance than the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Plus, all of this is achieved with a power consumption of around 200-250W, compared to 400-500W for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
