Nvidia RTX 4070 announced and specs detailed

Today Nvidia hosted its press conference from CES 2023, revealing what's next for its popular RTX series of graphics cards. 

First of all, we get the official announcement of the manufacturer's Geforce RTX 4070 Ti video card. If you're wondering, it's basically a rebrand of the previously revealed (and then withdrawn) 12 GB RTX 4080. 

It'll release on January 5 for $799 and it'll support the company's new DLSS 3 technology. 

Speaking of specs, you're getting 40 Shader TFLOPs, 93 RT  TFLOPs, and 641 Tensor TFLOPs thanks to the new Ada Lovelace architecture introduced with the RTX 4090 and 4080 a few months ago. 

According to the manufacturer, the RTX 4070 Ti is designed to maximize gaming at 1440p resolution, and it's up to three times faster than the RTX 3090 Ti while being much kinder on your PSU (and the environment, I suppose), utilizing nearly half the power footprint. 

We also hear that Nvidia is updating Geforce Now with RTX 4080 Superpod for subscribers at the new Ultimate tier, which will replace the RTX 3080 tier at $19.99. It'll come with 64 TFLOPs computing power, which is claimed as equivalent to five Xbox Series X consoles.

It'll include full ray tracing with DLSS 3 and the new Competitive Reflex mode at 240Hz. All current RTX 3080 members will be upgraded to the Ultimate tier starting in Q1 2023. This all will be rolled gradually into data centers starting with North America and Western Europe. 

The tier promises a negligible 34 ms latency end-to-end in Fortnite, compared to the 56 ms with the previous RTX 3080  tier at 120Hz. While Nvidia claims that an Xbox Series X has 90 ms latency at 60 Hz.
