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 have been posted on Twitter by TechEpiphany (who commonly shares statistics from this main outlet), exhibiting what occurred in week three of 2023.
And it was a giant win for Nvidia when it comes to 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 whole). Notably, the 4070 Ti was additionally the best-selling single GPU out of all fashions from AMD, Intel and Nvidia.

Whenever you add in RTX 4080 gross sales to Nvidia’s tally – that GPU managed 190 models – you find yourself with 735 models for Crew Inexperienced versus 500 models for Crew Purple, a reasonably clear win even with out placing within the whole 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 prime vendor, the RX 6700 XT, which tallied a formidable 410 models for the week.
What about Intel? Effectively, Crew Blue was manner behind the massive 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 worth is true – or no less than, a bit extra proper than the options?
That is an fascinating snapshot of present GPU gross sales, however we should bear 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 fascinating 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 (really helpful worth) proper out of the gate (relatively than being inflated). And secondly, that MSRP is extra palatable than every other current-gen graphics card on the market (all of that are higher-end fashions, after all). 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 might properly have been wider through the week for which these figures have been compiled.
So seemingly it’s so simple as the truth that if you’d like a very highly effective graphics card – bear in mind, the RTX 4070 Ti gives 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 at present will get. You’ll nonetheless pay by 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 point out itself. This GPU might arrive quickly going by the rumor mill, and maybe we’ll lastly get a glimpse of some correctly reasonably priced pricing with Lovelace (comparatively talking – possibly we should always name it semi-affordable, maybe, although some hypothesis factors to Nvidia going heavier with the value tag than we wish).
