Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti shows up on Geekbench's OpenCL database
It has been widely known that Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB would end up as the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. Some reports suggested Nvidia would launch it at CES 2022 alongside the Ada Lovelace laptop GPUs. A couple of new Geekbench entries show how the graphics card fares in its OpenCL benchmark.
The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti scores 219,504 and 214,654 in its two Geekbench runs. It sits between the GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3090 Ti, confirming pre-launch rumours about its performance. In the real world, it has the potential to outperform Ampere flagships in some RT-heavy games, but the graphics card will almost certainly falter in pure rasterization workloads due to its lacklustre specs.
The situation is more or less the same with Team Red's newest offerings, with the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti nestled comfortably between the Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX, at least in Geeekbench. It'll be interesting if the card can hold its position with gaming and other synthetic workloads.
While Geekbench isn't the best benchmark for graphics cards, it does give us a glimpse into how the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti could perform in the real world and reconfirms the graphics card's specifications, which include 12 GB of video memory, 60 SMs and a boost clock of 2.7 GHz. However, its rumoured US$899 price could make it a hard sell, especially with last-gen cards getting massive discounts.
