Nvidia’s brand-new RTX 4070 Ti GPU has actually offered more than both AMD’s high-end RDNA 3 graphics cards integrated, passing some fresh sales statistics.
As VideoCardz (opens in brand-new tab) identified, sales figures from German merchant MindFactory were published on Twitter by TechEpiphany (who routinely shares data from this significant outlet), revealing what occurred in week 3 of 2023.
And it was a big win for Nvidia in regards to current-gen designs, with the RTX 4070 Ti offering 545 systems. That showed to be more than the RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT integrated, which moved 300 and 200 systems respectively (500 overall). Especially, the 4070 Ti was likewise the very popular single GPU out of all designs from AMD, Intel and Nvidia.

When you include RTX 4080 sales to Nvidia’s tally – that GPU handled 190 systems – you wind up with 735 systems for Group Green versus 500 systems for Group Red, a relatively clear win even without putting in the overall for the RTX 4090 (which offered 210 systems, which’d press Nvidia to not far off 1,000 Lovelace GPUs cost the week).
Remarkably, the 2nd very popular graphics card was likewise an Nvidia offering, the RTX 3060, which wasn’t far behind the 4070 Ti and accumulated sales of 485 systems.
In 3rd location was AMD’s leading seller, the RX 6700 XT, which tallied an outstanding 410 systems for the week.
What about Intel? Well, Group Blue was method behind the huge 2 GPU makers, with the Arc A770 and A380 just acquiring 10 systems each (making them equivalent 21st with a lot of other cards, a lot of them long in the tooth like the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti and the GT 730).
Analysis: The rate is right – or a minimum of, a bit more ideal than the options?
This is an intriguing photo of present GPU sales, however we should keep in mind these are figures from a single merchant, so simply a little sample of the total market. So let’s not get brought away, however plainly it’s really fascinating to see the RTX 4070 Ti muscling out the integrated overalls of both its RDNA 3 competitors.
There are likely a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, the RTX 4070 Ti pitched in at its MSRP (recommended price) right out of the gate (rather than being inflated). And secondly, that MSRP is more palatable than any other current-gen graphics card out there (all of which are higher-end models, of course). The RX 7900 XT does come close at $100 (around £80 / AU$145) more for the MSRP – actually at MindFactory, it’s just over €30 (around $33 / £26 / AU$47) more, at least at the time of writing, though the gap may well have been wider during the week for which these figures were compiled.
So seemingly it’s as simple as the fact that if you want a really powerful graphics card – remember, the RTX 4070 Ti offers RTX 3090 level performance, with DLSS 3 for boosting supported games, and lower power usage – this is about as good as it currently gets. You’ll still pay through the nose for that privilege, however not quite as much as with the other current-gen options on the table. (And last-gen cards remain pricey, too, with even the RTX 3080 only being 13% cheaper than the 4070 Ti at MindFactory right now).
The smart call, for now perhaps, might be to wait for the RTX 4070 to show itself. This GPU could arrive soon going by the rumor mill, and perhaps we’ll finally get a glimpse of some properly affordable pricing with Lovelace (relatively speaking – maybe we should call it semi-affordable, perhaps, though some speculation points to Nvidia going heavier with the rate tag than we would like).
