Another of NVIDIA’s rumored Ampere graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, surfaced today as part of a Lenovo Legion T7 34IMZ5 gaming PC listing on German electronics retailer Alternate.de. The configuration was spotted by hardware site GameStar, which reached out to NVIDIA and Alternate to confirm the existence of the GPU after the listing was abruptly deleted. Both parties have claimed that the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti listing was an error.
“In the course of our inquiries to Alternate and Nvidia about this matter, the PC was removed from the shop again and Alternate expressed the assumption that it was an error,” GameStar wrote. “A final clarification to us is still pending. Nvidia, on the other hand, states as usual that they do not comment on news about unreleased products.”
“The Lenovo Legion T7 34IMZ5 is a gaming PC in a 34 liter tower case,” a machine translation of the now-removed listing reads. “Thanks to the Intel Core i7-10700K processor (3.8 GHz), fast 32 GB DDR4 main memory and a 1 TB SSD drive, all tasks can be done in no time at all. An NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card with 16 GB GDDR6 graphics memory provides the necessary graphics performance. This PC is also equipped with Gigabit LAN, WLAN (ax standard) and many other connection options, as well as illuminated fans, illuminated front panel and a handle.”
A similar leak occurred back in September when NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 Ti was listed as part of a specification sheet for the very same Legion T7 model (34IMZ5) on the official Lenovo website. There’s a possibility that Alternate’s listing was a legitimate error that derived from that, but enthusiasts seem convinced that a supercharged version of the GeForce RTX 3070 is indeed coming based on NVIDIA’s early proclivity for Ti models (see the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti) and constant rumors of a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.
