Black Friday week sees this powerful RTX 4070 Ti graphics card drop to its lowest-ever price - making it a worthy buy if you want to construct a new gaming rig or upgrade the graphics power of your current gaming PC.
You can find this Black Friday deal over at Newegg where the MSI Ventus Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti OC has been reduced to just $719 thanks to a combination of a rebate and discount code for a stacking $50 price reduction.
Our GPU hierarchy shows how the RTX 4070 Ti performs in benchmarks in relation to the competition from AMD and its 40-series brethren. Although a massive jump in generational pricing compared to its 30-series counterpart, the passage of time and sales events like Black Friday have slowly seen the cost of upgrading to the RTX 4070 Ti become more palatable.
When we reviewed the RTX 4070 Ti, our suite of gaming benchmark testing provided some insightful results for how this card stacked up against the competition in terms of gaming performance on ultra-settings at 4K. Take a look at just one of our charts for an idea of how the RTX 4070 Ti, performed.
Using a 4-nanometer TSMC process the RTX 4070 Ti packs in an impressive 35.8 billion transistors to deliver 240 Tensor cores and 60 ray tracing cores. With speeds up to 2640 MHz when boosting, the MSI Ventus Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti OC will help power a gaming PC to run all the latest and greatest video game titles to their full potential.
A benefit of purchasing and equipping a new 40-series GPU in your system is its access to the best-in-class ray-tracing performance compared to AMD and Intel, which do not compare equally to Nvidia from benchmark testing ray-tracing in games. Another selling point is Nvidia's DLSS 3 software, including its latest 3.5 update which features Ray Reconstruction, a new AI-powered technique that further enhances the quality of ray tracing in some limited titles.

$719, is still not a low enough price, to make this 12 GB piece of garbage look like an attractive buy.Reply
On the other hand, with game requirements rising with each passing day, the 16 GB RTX 4080 is more relevant now than ever before.
I agree with valthuer.Reply
$719 for a 12GB GPU is not a deal. On the other hand, the XFX Speedster RX 7900 XT I ordered yesterday from Newegg for the exact same price, is a great deal with 20GB. That deal ended yesterday and I jumped on it.
Nvidia should get back to its early original mission of making video cards that people can actually afford.Reply
Your comment is more prescient than you imagine. I bet there are a lot of people who are ready to switch back to AMD, like me, next purchase.ezst036 said:Nvidia should get back to its early original mission of making video cards that people can actually afford.
The value in NVidia products just isn't there.

Yeah, I understand the frustration people are having. Nvidia could have done a lot better.
When an entry level card today costs as much as a flagship from 6 years ago, that says it all IMO.
I'm not surprised people don't want to dish out the money for the RTX 40 series cards: with the exception of 4090, they aren't much of an upgrade over previous gen... if at all.
The miners, are also partly responsible for the current pricing trend: they're the ones who trashed the market to where it is now.
I miss ATI....but AMD might well do if Nvidia keeps this up even if it is just as a protest (ie no DLSS which I prefer to FSR and inferior raytracing on AMD assuming nothing changes by the time I am in the market again...). I had always planned to go 90 series card this build because I am a 4k144hz gamer and AMD drivers/software have been lacking for some time IMO (not just GPUs either).And Intel is only a blip on my radar until they can compete in the high end.brandonjclark said:Your comment is more prescient than you imagine.

The price was fair be it expensive going with a 4090. But what I saw in the lower SKUs disgusted me. Bad to near zero performance uplifts, price increases and all the VRAM/bus issues in the mid to lower end has me upset for them (and other low/mid tier users). I am usually a 80 series guy and even tyhat card was woefully under powered for the price. But people like my nephews I game with, tend to use mid grade gpus at best unless I gift them an gen or two old high end card. If they upgrade this gen I know they'd be under-served for the most part with Nvidia (AMD too but for mostly different reasons). I feel like Nvidia and AMD both have forgotten and treated gamers badly. Nvgreedia is easy to argue as such just look at prices and what they did with sanctions; however, AMD is guilty by association for pricing their products in the same fashion as Nvidia. And while they both skimped on ram buses Nvidia had to hit you in the capacity department too. Though to be fair to AMD they tried the whole MCM cache thing to compensate for bus speeds which shouldn't be ignored even if it is more ineffectual than I'd like. With Moore's Law dead/dying (depending on what camp your in), companies are going to have to try new things to continue to increase performance, full stop.
How is $719 a deal for the 4070ti? These prices are insane and articles like this one are tactually proponents for these prices. Let’s get back to reality, there isn’t a video card on the market worth $700.Reply
It's not even a 2560x1440 120fps average card, in 2023, for over $700, ON SALE. 2560x1440 120hz monitors are very mainstream priced these days, $175 area, yet not even a $720 card can power that without cutting details or using image quality fakery (DLSS).Reply

Apparantly the market disagrees. When you have a near monoploy you can get away with crap like this. More people buying AMD/Intel would send a message. In general, though, it seems people only want AMD/Intel around to force Nvidia to lower prices a bit so they buy Nvidia.
I'd perhaps buy a 4080 at this price. A 4070 Ti for this price? No thank you.Reply
