The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is still yet to have an official release statement from NVIDIA but that’s not stopping some retailers from either selling it or putting it up for preorder. A member on Reddit shared an image taken in a shop in Serbia where what appears to be a GIGABYTE RTX 4070 Ti Gaming graphics card is already on sale. Based on the price tag it seems this is a known retailer in the country called GIGATRON.
The price when converted to USD equates to roughly $1,400. Some members in that forum suspect this could be a fake but others who reside in Serbia state that dubious circumstances prevail in the country with smuggled imports, taxes, and black market items and that this is more than likely real. Another member in the thread also replied with a photo from a Costa Rican store that has already begun setting up its own display but is not actually selling the cards, yet.
Preorders are up in China
Next up, overseas etailer Taobao has already begun taking preorders for the still unannounced card. VideoCardz spotted ten different models whose pricing ranged from around $1,034-$1,206 and noted that pricing is similar to the un-launched RTX 4080 12 GB cards.

NVIDIA is expected to launch the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti on January 5. It has all but been confirmed, that these cards are the rebranded un-launched GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB graphics cards. It is also abundantly clear that with these preorders, store sightings, and many other leaks in recent weeks and months, AIB cards are out in the wild and in stock with retailers, and presumably in reviewers’ hands as well.
