NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40-Series family of graphics cards have grown with the launch of the RTX 4070 Ti, offering performance that surpasses the previous generation GeForce RTX 3090 Ti while requiring roughly half the power. If you’ve been on the fence about building a new gaming PC or upgrading your existing one, now is a great time to jump in and we're here to help you make some moves.
Prepping for Power
Think your PSU might need an upgrade? The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is reported by NVIDIA to hit a 285W TGP with an average power draw of roughly 226W when gaming. So if you're in the market for a new CORSAIR power supply, you should consider picking up one of our fully-modular 750W models to account for your other components in your build.
Like other GeForce RTX 40-Series cards, the RTX 4070 Ti features the PCIe Gen 5 connector and includes an adapter in the box that’ll allow you to use your existing PSU cables for power. This will do the job if you're alright with the added cable bulk.
At the launch of the RTX 40-Series, we released our single-cable solution that connects directly to a CORSAIR Type-4 or Type-3 power supply that’ll draw all the power needed for your new graphics card.
And if the stock look isn’t for you, we've since launched an individually sleeved premium version of this cable in different colors to match the rest of your build!
A Quick Word on Cooling
When it comes to cooling, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will very likely come in many different shapes and sizes as each manufacturer puts their own spin on the platform.
If you're looking to reclaim some board space and expand the cooling potential of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, stay tuned for updates from us regarding availability from our HYDRO X Series of products!
It's exciting to see levels of performance that were once reserved exclusively for the highest end of the gaming graphics card market come down to more accessible tiers. If you've been sitting on an older generation graphics card, will you be going for an upgrade? Let us know in the comments!
