German retailer Mindfactory has reported the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti as its number-one seller for the third week of January. The retailer reports selling 545 units of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, with the GeForce RTX 3060 coming in second at 485 units. AMD is in third place with the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT at 410 units. Interestingly enough, the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX seems to be battling it out with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti at 300 and 305 units sold respectively. The report comes from TechEpiphany (via VideoCardz) and TechEpiphany has said that these unit sales numbers have been rounded up or down in steps of five.
Customers Prefer Lower-cost Cards
NVIDIA dominated in accounting for over 57% (2255 units sold) of all sales with AMD trailing behind at just over 42% (1665 units sold). Intel only managed to sell 20 units of its Arc Alchemist cards combined or 0.51% of the total sales for Mindfactory. These totals paint a picture showing how consumers are still far more focused on purchasing lower costs GPUs vs any of the newest flagship offerings. NVIDIA’s own flagship cards, the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080, had 210 and 190 units sold respectively, or 400 combined which is still far less than the 545 units sold for the RTX 4070 Ti.
Notably, the RTX 4080, which has been widely criticized for its $1,199 price point, even lost out to the AMD RX 6800. It (RTX 4080) also clearly lost out to its direct competitor the AMD RX 7900 XTX ($999) which had 110 more units sold. It also shows how if push comes to shove with money to spare some consumers will pick the higher-priced RTX 4090 over the RTX 4080. Meanwhile, as the retailer reports show, NVIDIA appears to have found a sweet spot with the RTX 4070 Ti at $799.
