Briefly: Nvidia’s RTX 4070 Ti arrived at the beginning of the month with an MSRP of $800. Most people would agree that they’re expensive, and finding one at that price isn’t easy (but still likely). But the criticism didn’t seem to hurt sales of Lovelace’s latest entry, especially in Germany.
TechEpiphany (via Cards video) tweeted the latest sales figures from German retailer Mindfactory, which show that 545 RTX 4070 Ti models were sold in the third week of January alone. For comparison, this is more than Radeon’s total sales RX 7900 XTXAnd RX 7900 XTand intel Sagittarius A770/A380 – Only 20 Intel cards were sold in the same week, admittedly.

As we know, the RTX 4070 Ti started life with the $900 RTX 4080 12GB last year. The backlash against the price and difference in specs compared to the RTX 4080 16GB led Nvidia to “unrelease” the card and rebrand it as the RTX 4070 Ti, but the $100 discount didn’t prove popular — we said at Our review It should not contain an MSRP of more than $700.
Furthermore, the lack of Founders Edition cards and the fact that this is just a recommendation from Nvidia means few models can be found at this price.
Even additional board partner MSI derided Nvidia’s pricing strategy. in Tweet quickly deletedThe company noted that the RTX 4070 Ti was available from its store at a cost “not as bad as the 4080.”
