We still see a surprisingly small number of cards appearing on Amazon in both the US and UK (although there are plenty of miniature units appearing on eBay). Demand doesn’t seem to be high this time around—perhaps that’s due to the $799 MSRP that characterizes this theoretically “mid-range” card as more of a premium offering.
It’s totally understandable. The latest fifth-gen RTX 3070 Ti was only $599 when it launched, after all, even if stocks are quickly consumed by miners and bots. Anyone looking for a new, more affordable GPU would likely be better off waiting for the desktop version of the RTX 4060 (which has already been announced for laptops) to run.
Inventory is depleting slower than we expected, but it’s still selling. At the time of writing, we’ve counted six separate models of the RTX 4070 Ti that were out of stock at Newegg, and two that are on sale at Best Buy are also sold out.
Something from B&H Photo and Micro Center remains, though it’s entirely possible that these retailers held stock for in-store sales before any of them were put on the online market. If you live near one of these vendors, you might want to consider dropping by there to check stock status before committing to an online purchase—you’ll likely be left waiting for shipping even if you manage to secure one.
Stock has now landed with Ebuyer in the UK, although for now it looks like Overclockers still has the cheapest RTX 4070 Ti cards for UK buyers. However, several models over at Overclockers have returned to showing a “pre-order” button instead of purchase options, indicating that they are already sold out.
Astonishingly, it appears that we actually are Not We’ll see these cards sell out massively on launch day, as we did with our two previous Nvidia GPUs and the competing AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX.
This may be due to the fact that everyone with loads of money to spend on upgrading their gaming PC is holding on to the RTX 4090 instead (or has already got their hands on one). The current economic climate is also likely to be a factor; You either have money to spend on a GPU, or you don’t, and if you do, you’re more likely to choose a higher-performance card.
In fact, there’s a whole host of affordable RTX 4070 Ti models at Newegg right now. Most are just above the $799 figure Nvidia quoted, but it’s not uncommon for factory-overclocked cards from other manufacturers to throw a few bucks over the price — you’re getting a slightly better version of the GPU in theory, after every thing .
Red alert, everyone! There is already an RTX 4070 Ti selling for MSRP on launch day! We haven’t seen this in the US in forever, where all of the recent GPU launches host mass selling, retail price gouging, and large scale scalping.
Take a trip to Newegg, though, and you can find a Zotac Trinity RTX 4070 Ti for $799.99 — is that technically 99 cents more than the actual retail price offered by Nvidia? We think so, but we’re willing to let this slide.
Judging by the current stock situation, it looks like the UK will offer an iteration of the RTX 4080 launch. While the card sold out instantly in America, British buyers weren’t too enthusiastic; Most likely as a result of the current cost of living pressures that are severely affecting the UK.
This means we’re still seeing plenty of RTX 4070 Ti models on sale in Britain, with plenty of different models available from Overclockers, which seems to be where the best deals are right now. Other retailers also have stock, but it’s often more expensive. Some cards on Scan are selling for as much as £1,049!
Newegg’s physical inventory is low, so forget about pricey third-party sellers: You can get the Gigabyte Eagle OC RTX 4070 Ti for $849.99 right now. Nothing from B&H Photo yet, which means if the card is sold elsewhere, that might end up being the best place to look.
Somewhat surprisingly, we don’t see a huge number of RTX 4070 Ti cards appearing on Amazon yet. There is one MSI model that sells for a ridiculous $1299.99, absolutely nothing to see on Amazon UK.
At this point during the launch of the RTX 4090, we were already seeing a bunch of bite-size GPUs selling way way above MSRP. That’s a slightly encouraging sight, though, as a quick trip to eBay shows a set for sale for over $1,000 — including one wisecrack who said he’d ship it as soon as I received it on Jan. 12. who secured an order for the card and couldn’t even wait for it to be delivered before putting it up on eBay. some people…
In the UK, Overclockers seems to be the place to be, because Scan, Box and Ebuyer all list the RTX 4070 Ti at £900 or higher. You can snag a Zotac Trinity model (or one from Inno3D) for £848.99. If you’re not a fan of these brands and are willing to pay a little more, you can get the Asus TUF RTX 4070 Ti for £869.99.
Currently in the US it was the cheapest RTX 4070 Ti we could find at Best Buy: the MSI Ventus 3X OC model for $839.99, just over $799 MSRP. As mentioned earlier, you’ll need a Best Buy account to snap one up, as the retailer tries to prevent another immediate rush of sales to investors — learning from the mistakes of the RTX 4090’s launch, obviously.
Newegg does have inventory, but only from overpriced third party sellers. Microcenter does not appear to have any units for sale. It looks like B&H Photo will stock the card, but it still has a “coming soon” tag on the website, so keep an eye on that.
Ironically, the Nvidia website links seem to work. On the UK site, some of the links to retailers don’t seem to work – you can use the pinned links above to instantly get to the relevant storefront!
We are out! The Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti is officially on sale, though not at all retailers yet. If you’re in the US, it’s available from Best Buy at retail, but you’ll need an account to purchase it.
Meanwhile, in the UK, Scan and Overclockers both have stock available, with prices starting at £848.99 and ranging all the way up to around the thousandth mark. Stock will likely evaporate faster than a tepid RTX 4080, so move fast!
Some quick analysis here of the RTX 4070 Ti models being touted on Nvidia’s own website: While Team Green may have dropped its US MSRP from $899 to $799 when it rebranded the 12GB RTX 4080 to christen it this GPU instead Third-party manufacturers seem not to play ball.
Not one of the “coming soon” cards listed on Nvidia’s website is priced at $799—the cheapest is the MSI model at $839.99, and some are at the original $899. This could be because manufacturers stuck to the original price plan for some cards — or it could have really taken an unseen hit when Nvidia rebranded the GPU, since factory overclocked models are often a bit more expensive than those that come directly from Nvidia. .
It’s worth noting here that there doesn’t appear to be a Founder’s Edition version of the RTX 4070 Ti. This isn’t entirely surprising, given that Nvidia tends to prioritize its most powerful cards for first-party FE variants, but it’s unusual since then. I was Founder’s Edition RTX 3070 Ti in the previous generation.
Remember, it’s very likely that we’ll see brokers pop up once the card goes on sale. In fact, some Newegg sellers already seem willing to take advantage of the inevitable inventory shortage here; There are a handful of RTX 4070 Ti models already listed from independent vendors of varying degrees of schematicity, and nearly all of them retail for upwards of $1,000 — far exceeding Nvidia’s MSRP of $799.
Some of these cards sell for frankly ridiculous prices, closer to those of the RTX 4090 (although you won’t find one at retail now either). Needless to say, you shouldn’t buy a 4070 Ti for $1,500!
Other than releasing the RTX 4090, Nvidia hasn’t given us an exact release time frame today. We can reasonably assume that it will be associated with a US time zone, so readers in other time zones may have to wait for a while even though it is already January 5th.
While we wait for the RTX 4070 Ti in stock, check out our roundup of everything we know about the Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti.
We will also be reviewing the GPU, but since CES 2023 is happening at the same time, it will be delayed a bit.
When the RTX 4090 went on sale, it sold out almost immediately, and while the RTX 4080 did eventually sell out, it took a little longer.
What will happen when the RTX 4070 Ti goes on sale? Given the value proposition, it can sell quickly – being the cheapest current RTX 4000 series GPU, might make it an ‘impulse’ buy, and people who are disappointed at not getting an RTX 4080 or even a 4090 might try to get the 4070 Ti to overcome it.
Keep this page bookmarked and we’ll help you beat the rush and hopefully crash a new GPU.
Today is the day! The Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti will go on sale sometime on Thursday, January 5th. We don’t have the exact time yet, so we’ll be keeping an eye on this blog and will update when stock starts appearing.
If Nvidia follows through on previous launches, we’d expect it to go on sale at 9am ET, which is 2pm GMT for people watching in the UK.
