The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with 16 GB GDDR6 VRAM appears in a retailer listing
The GeForce RTX 3070 may NVIDIA's most-powerful GA104-based graphics card, but rumours persist that the company plans to release a Ti edition. While specifications about the RTX 3070 Ti remain thin on the ground, NVIDIA is expected to equip the card with 16 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, double the volume that the RTX 3070 has.
NVIDIA is yet to announce the RTX 3070 Ti, but Alternate briefly listed the card as part of a pre-built Lenovo system. Apparently, the Legion T7 34IMZ5 has an Intel Core i7-10700K processor too, along with 32 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 1 TB SSD. Alternate priced this machine at €2,559, for reference.
According to Videocardz, the German retailer insisted that the reference to the RTX 3070 Ti was a bug, which it resolved by taking down the listing. However, the specifications match those that Lenovo published on its PSREF database in September 2020.
It is worth keeping in mind that the RTX 3070 Ti has been killed off and brought back to life in recent months. Manli registered the card, along with the RTX 3050, RTX 3060 and RTX 3080 Ti, with the EEC in December though, adding support to the idea that NVIDIA plans to release the RTX 3070 Ti at some stage. Similarly, FinalWire added the RTX 3070 Ti to AIDA64 Extreme during the same month. Ultimately, few RTX 30 cards will be hitting the market until May at the earliest, so it may make sense for NVIDIA to hold off on releasing the RTX 3070 Ti until after then.
