Nvidia just leaked its own GPU for CES 2023

Nvidia leaked its GeForce RTX 4070 Ti on its website, suggesting the launch of this eagerly anticipated graphics card is approaching rapidly. It’s been rumored that the card will launch at CES 2023.

Nvidia has been promoting its hardware as an integral part of the VR and AR revolution with the goal to recreate the world as digital twins in the Nvidia Omniverse. In the latest leak, Nvidia mentioned the “GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, NVIDIA RTX A4500 or higher” as the recommended GPU to run the Omniverse View app. The app lets you view real-time Omniverse renders on your desktop requires an RTX GPU with 8 GB but performs better with more powerful hardware.

It’s expected that Nvidia will launch the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti at the upcoming GeForce Beyond at CES 2023, a special event that will be broadcast on Nvidia’s YouTube channel and its Twitch page. The event happens on January 3, 2023, at 8 a.m. PST.

This isn’t the first sign that the launch of this intriguing graphics card launch is imminent. A few online retailers made the RTX 4070 Ti available for preorder. Earlier this month, a benchmark of the RTX 4070 Ti leaked, suggesting a threat to AMD’s flagship GPUs, the RX 7900 XTX and XT.

The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti has had a troubled history, likely being a rebranded form of the RTX 4080 12GB that Nvidia “unlaunched” in October. As such, Nvidia might have originally considered this GPU to be closer to the flagship RTX 4080 than the low-cost RTX 4070 series. While the memory is reduced from the usual 16GB of the RTX 4080, the 12GB version also had fewer cores. That led to some outrage and the delay and possible rebranding of this card.

It feels like Nvidia is gaslighting us with this ‘new’ GPU
Nvidia's Jeff Fisher presenting its CES 2023 keynote.

Nvidia announced a "new" GPU dubbed the RTX 4070 Ti via its broadcast ahead of CES 2023. Why the quotations around "new," you ask?

Well, it's not a new GPU at all actually, but you'd never know it by the way Nvidia GeForce head Jeff Fisher just talked about it. If you weren't paying close attention to tech media news for the past few months, you'd think this was Nvidia's fourth GPU in the new RTX 40-series -- but no. It's just a new name for a product that was announced last year, and then quickly retracted.

Nvidia’s rebranded RTX 4070 Ti surfaces at CES 2023
Spec sheet for Nvidia's RTX 4070 Ti.

Nvidia's controversial RTX 4070 Ti is real, and the company announced the card would arrive on January 5 in its CES 2023 keynote -- just a couple of days after the announcement. Why the accelerated timeline? There's a good chance Nvidia has had the RTX 4070 Ti in the incubator for a while.

In October 2022, Nvidia took a radical step by "unlaunching" its 12GB RTX 4080. This GPU was announced alongside the 16GB RTX 4080 and RTX 4090, and many people accused Nvidia of giving a lower-class GPU a name upgrade to justify a higher price. The specs of the RTX 4070 Ti show it's a rebranded RTX 4080 12GB, as rumors suggested.
