Based on a Rumor
Nvidia is all set to officially launch the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card next week during CES 2023, and we already know the card has identical specifications to the canceled RTX 4080 12GB model, but so far there is no official confirmation from Nivida regarding the pricing, with optimists hoping that the RTX 4070 Ti will be cheaper than the $899 MSRP intended for the 4080 12GB.
Multiple Sources Claim Nvidia Settled on $799 MSRP
According to multiple sources who all report the same thing, Nvidia has allegedly settled on $799 MSRP for the RTX 4070 Ti, which makes it 10% cheaper than the canceled RTX 4080 12GB.
Wccftech claims that according to their sources, Nvidia has told AIC (Add-in-Card) partners today to adjust the MSRP to $799 instead of $899. Companies may settle on a pricing and then change it later closer to the product launch, however, according to Wccftech hypothesis, this is becoming less likely since we are already days away from the official launch date.
Hardware leaker Moore’s Law is Dead also reported the same thing toady, with speculation that even at that price, Nvidia partners are likely to charge well over $799 for their custom models.

However it’s worth mentioning they did briefly consider $899, and I really wouldn’t be surprised if they changed their minds again.
Either way expect some AIBs to charge well over MSRP if it “starts” close to or at $799.
As previously stated, the RTX 4070 Ti has the exact specs to the canceled RTX 4080 12GB model, built on AD104 GPU die, featuring 7680 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR6X memory at a 192-bit bus width, a base GPU clock speed of 2310 MHz, and boost clock speed of 2610 MHz.

Even though multiple sources are claiming the same thing, until we get an official confirmation from Jensen Huang / Nvidia directly, this news should be considered as a rumor, so take it with a grain of salt.
