The latest addition to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-Series family of graphics cards is about to hit the market. Releasing today, Thursday, June 10, the RTX 3070 Ti shows a lot of promise and presents a shockingly affordable alternative at a time when GPUs are scarce.

The demand for this graphics card is likely going to be outrageous, which means many PC builders are left wondering where to buy the RTX 3070 Ti. Fortunately, several online retailers will stock the GPU. We’ve prepared a list of the usual suspects so that you too can try your luck at scoring this card.

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is going to be available at launch from a number of online retailers. Your best bet is to check Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, B&H Photo, and Nvidia’s own website if you want to buy it online. As of right now, only Newegg has listings for the card, with the prices starting at $599. Best Buy offered two variants of RTX 3070 Ti which were only made available after a lengthy delay. Unfortunately, they sold out within seconds.

You can also expect to find this GPU in brick-and-mortar stores, but availability may be limited. Last week’s RTX 3080 Ti release saw people camping outside for hours on end in order to get the graphics card. As an example, Best Buy didn’t sell the card online at all, which resulted in a line of over 200 people waiting outside overnight. Best Buy won’t have physical units of the RTX 3070 Ti, but other retailers may.

When it comes to specs, the card is a small upgrade over the RTX 3070 and will bridge the gap between its predecessor and the RTX 3080. Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3070 Ti comes with 6,144 CUDA cores (compared to the 3070’s 5,888), 192 tensor cores, and 48 RT Cores. The card has a base clock of 1,575MHz and can be boosted up to 1,770MHz. It also has 8GB of GDDR6X memory with 6080Gbps of bandwidth. The memory bus remains at 256 bits, just like in the RTX 3070, which falls behind the 320-bit RTX 3080 considerably. It’s also worth noting that Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Ti is quite a bit more power-hungry than its predecessor. With a TDP of 290 watts, Nvidia recommends a 750-watt power supply be used with this card.

Joining Nvidia’s lineup of the best graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti delivers a performance increase over its older sibling. Leaked benchmarks report an increase of up to 10% when it comes to frame rates. Meanwhile, our own testing shows that the RTX 3070 Ti will be around 8% faster than the RTX 3070. However, it’s still beaten by the RTX 3080 by a large margin — depending on the game, the RTX 3080 was anywhere between 14% and 26% faster than the RTX 3070 Ti.

Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Ti is set to release in the early hours of Thursday, June 10. The approximate launch times are said to be 6 a.m. PT and 9 a.m. ET. Those who want to get their hands on one of these GPUs will likely have to be ready around those hours. If last week’s RTX 3080 Ti release is anything to go by, this card is likely to sell out very quickly.

While this new release from Nvidia is not going to be the most powerful GPU currently on the market, it still presents a great choice that will run most games in 1440p on max settings. When it comes to gaming in 4K, this card falls short and will not perform as well as the RTX 3080 and 3080 Ti cards, but can be an option if you don’t mind lower frames per second (fps). However, the pricing of this card is much more reasonable than the surprisingly overpriced RTX 3080 Ti. Given that there are simply no graphics cards to be found at their recommended price right now, the RTX 3070 Ti is a worthy purchase.

Nvidia’s RTX Super might be a massive boost at no extra cost

We just got another round of leaks surrounding the rumored Nvidia RTX 40 Super lineup. This time, the sources speak about the amount of memory these new GPUs might serve up. Nvidia may be making progress toward rivaling some of AMD's best graphics cards, which typically have a lot more VRAM. But is this upgrade really going to be as significant as some speculate? Not all reputable sources agree.

A third source has just weighed in on the matter of the rumored RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super, and the RTX 4070 Super. Benchlife cites its own sources at Nvidia's board partners as it claims that the RTX 4080 Super might come with 20GB of memory, whereas the RTX 4070 Super might be boosted to 16GB. Doing so would definitely require chip changes for both cards. The RTX 4080 Super would now share the same AD102 GPU as the flagship RTX 4090, and the RTX 4070 Super would be bumped up to the AD103 chip found in the RTX 4080.

This underrated Nvidia GPU is still the one to buy
Nvidia's RTX 4070 graphics cards over a pink background.

There hasn't been a lot of positive reception to Nvidia's graphics cards this generation. There's no doubt that Nvidia's RTX 40-series GPUs are among the best graphics cards you can buy, but with disappointing generational improvements, higher pricing, and reliance on features like DLSS 3, it's easy to write off a new graphics card when Nvidia releases one.

But there's one Goldilocks graphics card from Nvidia's current generation that's the right choice for a lot of PC gamers. It delivers all of the best parts of Nvidia's cutting-edge generation and ignores the insane pricing and disappointing generational uplifts. And now, months after launch, prices have dropped, making it an even better value. That GPU is Nvidia's RTX 4070.
Not a warm reception

Nvidia may launch three new Super GPUs to fight back AMD
Three RTX 4080 cards sitting on a pink background.

Nvidia may be readying three new GPUs -- the RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super, and the RTX 4070 Super. We haven't seen Super cards since Nvidia's RTX 20-series, but if this leak turns out to be true, they're coming back. Will they be worthwhile enough to rank high among the best graphics cards? It's hard to say, but they could help it compete against AMD's recent GPUs.

The information comes from hongxing2020, a frequent leaker in the GPU space. Nvidia already has a decent spread of GPUs between the RTX 4080, RTX 4070 Ti, and the RTX 4070. However, if a refresh to the Ada lineup is reportedly on the way, we might see some notable changes, but only if Nvidia decides to shake things up and use a different chip for at least two out of those three GPUs.
