Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti full GPU specs are spilled – and it’s good news

Nvidia’s rumored RTX 4070 Ti has been the subject of yet more leakage, again from a graphics card maker. This time we’ve been treated to spilled images of PNY’s cards, and the full specs of the 4070 Ti – which will come as a relief to those who were concerned about recent chatter regarding a big slash in the CUDA Core count.

This latest rumor aired by VideoCardz – and let’s remember, it is just a rumor, albeit one backed up with a whole bunch of images of PNY’s RTX 4070 Ti models – shows its Verto boards, which have identical specs to the previous leak from Colorful: 2,310MHz base clock, 12GB GDDR6X VRAM (192-bit bus).

What we’re told additionally by the PNY leakage is that the boost clock is 2,610MHz, and we get that crucial CUDA Core loadout, which is 7,680.

All of this is exactly the same spec as the canceled RTX 4080 12GB, down to the last detail, including the exact same clock frequencies, so to put it another way – this again underlines that Nvidia has slapped the RTX 4070 Ti badge on the ditched lower-tier RTX 4080 graphics card.

Analysis: Hopeful signs – let’s just keep our fingers crossed for pricing

It’s not like this wasn’t expected, but what we also anticipated was that Nvidia might change things up a bit somewhere, just to show that it has done at least something to tune and make this a slightly different GPU to the one that unceremoniously got the boot. You know, tweak the clock speeds just a touch maybe.

Or as some suggested, cut the CUDA Cores a bit, or even a lot, because as we mentioned at the outset, there was a recent rumor that the 4070 Ti would slash the core count to 5,888 cores, a big drop from the full 7,680. Now, this doesn’t mean that can’t happen – maybe the earlier rumor is right. But this new one is weightier, coming from a retailer, complete with a bunch of images to give it more substance; though still, we must remain cautious around either possibility.

What could be the case is that the leaker who floated the 5,888 cores idea has heard info that actually pertains to the RTX 4070, the vanilla version – but we’re into the territory of pure guesswork here.

If you’re thinking: why would Nvidia need to tweak the RTX 4070 Ti to make it different to the banished 4080 12GB? Well, it’s to do with the price mainly. The previous thinking was that if Nvidia pitches the 4070 Ti a chunk lower than the $899 price tag of the 4080 12GB, then it’ll have people asking – why on earth was the latter unveiled with that asking price, then, if the 4070 Ti is pretty much the exact same card?

What it appears that Nvidia might be doing instead is cutting the price of the existing RTX 4080 16GB, something that’s needed for a number of reasons, stoking flagging sales being one of them, and competing better with the freshly unleashed AMD RX 7900 XTX, which (mostly) edges out the RTX 4080 at a lower price point (for gamers, anyway, ray tracing aside). Once the 4080 16GB costs less, then a cheaper price tag for the 4070 Ti compared to the canceled 4080 12GB obviously makes sense, even if it’s the same spec.

Clearly, Nvidia needs to do something to counterattack against the strong initial impression made by the 7900 XTX and making the RTX 4080 more competitive, then bringing in some upper-mid-range ammo in the form of a more affordable 4070 Ti, seems a likely plan. Then again, in the GPU world, sometimes sense goes out the window, so we’ll just have to wait and see. The rumored release date for the RTX 4070 Ti is January 5, so the graphics card is theoretically just a few weeks away now.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
