NVIDIA’s next midrange flagship may pack a higher level of performance than anticipated.
Alleged details pertaining to a next-gen SKU leveraging a “full-fat” AD104 GPU were shared by prominent leaker kopite7kimi today, teasing the potential performance of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. The product will purportedly feature 7,680 CUDA cores, 12 GB of GDDR6X memory running at 21 Gbps, and a 400-watt power limit, a recipe that supposedly amounts to a surprisingly powerful graphics card that can “easily match RTX 3090 Ti.”
As I have mentioned before, there is an AD104 SKU with a 400W limit.— kopite7kimi (@kopite7kimi) August 1, 2022

It can easily match RTX 3090 Ti.
If true, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti should prove to be a hugely popular development based on the size and pricing of the current flagship, which are arguably excessive on both counts.
No details relating to the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti’s clocks were shared by kopite7kimi, but Wccftech speculated in its coverage that they should be between the 2.0 to 3.0 GHz range, a theory that’s prompted by NVIDIA’s node changes.
The higher than usual clock speed bump comes from the fact that NVIDIA is making a two-node jump considering the Ampere GPUs with Samsung 8nm node was in reality a 10nm process node with some optimizations. NVIDIA is skipping 7nm and going straight for a 5nm node and not even the vanilla variant but an optimized version of it. With Pascal on the TSMC 16nm node, NVIDIA delivered a huge frequency leap and we can expect a similar jump this time around too.
In comparison, the standard, non-Titanium version of the GeForce RTX 4070 is rumored to feature 7,168 CUDA cores, 10 GB of GDDR6X memory, and a 300-watt TDP.
Previous reports had suggested that NVIDIA would be launching its GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card in December, but recent rumors originating from China’s Chiphell forums have driven speculation that only the GeForce RTX 4090 may surface this year. The rest of the GeForce RTX 40 Series could slip to Q1 2023, it’s claimed.
