Nvidia’s new RTX 4070 Ti GPU has offered greater than each AMD’s high-end RDNA 3 graphics playing cards mixed, going by some contemporary gross sales stats.
As VideoCardz (opens in new tab) noticed, gross sales figures from German retailer MindFactory had been posted on Twitter by TechEpiphany (who repeatedly shares statistics from this main outlet), displaying what occurred in week three of 2023.
And it was a giant win for Nvidia by way of current-gen fashions, with the RTX 4070 Ti promoting 545 models. That proved to be greater than the RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT mixed, which shifted 300 and 200 models respectively (500 complete). Notably, the 4070 Ti was additionally the best-selling single GPU out of all fashions from AMD, Intel and Nvidia.

Once you add in RTX 4080 gross sales to Nvidia’s tally – that GPU managed 190 models – you find yourself with 735 models for Group Inexperienced versus 500 models for Group Purple, a reasonably clear win even with out placing within the complete for the RTX 4090 (which offered 210 models, and that’d push Nvidia to not far off 1,000 Lovelace GPUs offered for the week).
Apparently, the second best-selling graphics card was additionally an Nvidia providing, the RTX 3060, which wasn’t far behind the 4070 Ti and amassed gross sales of 485 models.
In third place was AMD’s high vendor, the RX 6700 XT, which tallied a formidable 410 models for the week.
What about Intel? Nicely, Group Blue was manner behind the large two GPU makers, with the Arc A770 and A380 solely racking up 10 models apiece (making them equal twenty first with a bunch of different playing cards, a lot of them very lengthy within the tooth just like the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti and the GT 730).
Evaluation: The value is correct – or no less than, a bit extra proper than the alternate options?
That is an attention-grabbing snapshot of present GPU gross sales, however we should keep in mind these are figures from a single retailer, so only a small pattern of the general market. So let’s not get carried away, however clearly it’s very attention-grabbing to see the RTX 4070 Ti muscling out the mixed totals of each its RDNA 3 rivals.
There are possible a few causes for this. Firstly, the RTX 4070 Ti pitched in at its MSRP (beneficial value) proper out of the gate (quite than being inflated). And secondly, that MSRP is extra palatable than some other current-gen graphics card on the market (all of that are higher-end fashions, in fact). The RX 7900 XT does come shut at $100 (round £80 / AU$145) extra for the MSRP – truly at MindFactory, it’s simply over €30 (round $33 / £26 / AU$47) extra, no less than on the time of writing, although the hole could effectively have been wider throughout the week for which these figures had been compiled.
So seemingly it’s so simple as the truth that in order for you a extremely highly effective graphics card – keep in mind, the RTX 4070 Ti affords RTX 3090 degree efficiency, with DLSS 3 for reinforcing supported video games, and decrease energy utilization – that is about pretty much as good because it presently will get. You’ll nonetheless pay by means of the nostril for that privilege, however not fairly as a lot as with the opposite current-gen choices on the desk. (And last-gen playing cards stay dear, too, with even the RTX 3080 solely being 13% cheaper than the 4070 Ti at MindFactory proper now).
The good name, for now maybe, is perhaps to attend for the RTX 4070 to indicate itself. This GPU could arrive soon going by the rumor mill, and maybe we’ll lastly get a glimpse of some correctly inexpensive pricing with Lovelace (comparatively talking – possibly we should always name it semi-affordable, maybe, although some hypothesis factors to Nvidia going heavier with the worth tag than we wish).
