Nvidia expected to reveal RTX 40 laptop GPUs and RTX 4070 Ti at the "GeForce Beyond" event...

Something to look forward to: Nvidia confirmed today an event it will hold on January 3 titled "GeForce Beyond." It is expected to showcase the reveal of laptop-based GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs, as well as the RTX 4080 12 GB. Oh sorry, we mean the RTX 4070 Ti.

Following weeks of swirling rumors regarding a potential event for Nvidia to reveal new additions to the Ada Lovelace family of products, those rumors can finally come to rest as the date has been set for "GeForce Beyond," days before CES 2023 opens doors in Las Vegas.

As you may recall, Nvidia unveiled its next generation graphics cards last September which would kick off with three products: the RTX 4090, the RTX 4080 16 GB, and the RTX 4080 12 GB. However, after major backlash due to the RTX 4080 12 GB featuring lesser specifications than its 16 GB counterpart, Nvidia "unlaunched" the 12 GB variant. Many noted that it would be very "Nvidia-like" to reveal the product as a lesser-tiered model and that is exactly what appears to be the case with the upcoming RTX 4070 Ti.

The specifications for the upcoming RTX 4070 Ti are exactly as the original 4080 12 GB, though ultimately it's not only an issue about bad naming but also terrible pricing. A recent story about pre-order listings on Chinese sites seem to reveal that the 4070 Ti will have the same price as the unlaunched 4080 12 GB.

We still don't know the RTX 4070 Ti's official US MSRP. Most are expecting it to be considerably lower than the RTX 4080 12GB's $900, but the indications from China aren't good. If Nvidia is hoping that consumers will have simply forgotten about the 4080 12 GB fiasco, they are very wrong.

Nvidia is also expected to reveal the first RTX 4000 laptop GPUs. Recent leaked information points to an RTX 4080 laptop GPU performing up to 30% faster than Ampere's flagship laptop GPU, the RTX 3080 Ti.

Overall, the GeForce Beyond event is likely to elicit enthusiasm from some consumers while drawing disapproval from others. While it was the right move for Nvidia to "unlaunch" the RTX 4080 12 GB, re-releasing it as a 4070 Ti at the same price would be potentially catastrophic.

Even $699 msrp would be excessive for this thing, but they will probably set it at 749$ or 799$

Nvidia can charge a certain amount of premium for being the better product and access to the Geforce ecosystem.

But it would sure be fun to see them go for AMD's jugular on pricing too, sometime.

Nvidia don't go for anyone's jugular except customers and partners. AMD it's nothing to them with 10% market share, no threat . Only way to see NV cutting prices is to not buy for a while.

I wonder who has drawn the short straw at Nvidia HQ and been given the miserable task of unveiling the newly gimped 4080 12GB?

Will it be that same guy who unveiled the total rip off that was the 3080 'Tie' last year...lol.

FYSA, from Wikipedia

1070 Ti........$449...(11/17)
2070 Super..$499...(7/19)
3070 Ti........$599...(6/21)

My guess
4070 Ti........$699-$799

They wanted to sell this GPU for $900 which is the MSRP of the 12GB 3080 when it launched. The renaming will no doubt force a price drop because they will likely want to price the 4070 (standard) around $500-$600, so that it is still less than previous generation 3080. So, I look for the 4070 Ti to be at least $699, probably $799. There is potentially a big gap between this card and the standard 4070 as rumors seem to point to the 4070 have the same number of cores as the 3070 (5888). We'll have to wait and see, I wouldn't be surprised if the 4070 is somewhere in between though and they do 5888 with the 4060 Ti.
