A 7.5GB graphics card?

Reports of a new Nvidia graphics card have started circulating, a late addition to the company's RTX series graphics lineup which has the potential to spice things up in the high-end graphics market. 

This new graphics card is reportedly called the RTX 2070 Ti, a new GPU which allegedly sits between Nvidia's existing RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 models, taking on the same niche as the GTX 1070 Ti when it launched in late 2017. This rumour was started by WCCFTECH, originating from benchmark listings from UserBenchmark, which references an Nvidia graphics card with performance levels which sit between the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080. 

We will start this discussion by saying one thing, the RTX 2070 Ti is probably a fabrication, with the UserBenchmark listing for the graphics card making no mention of the RTX 2070 Ti while also listing the graphics card with 7.5GB of usable VRAM. This is less VRAM than both the RTX 2080 and RTX 2070, both of which ship with 8GB of onboard GDDR6 memory.  

When Nvidia created their GTX 1070 Ti graphics card, it was clearly a response to AMD's Radeon RX Vega 56, a counter to what was arguably the most compelling graphics card in AMD Vega lineup. In this case, an RTX 2070 Ti would do little more than confuse consumers, as an RTX 2070 Ti would only serve to compete with other Nvidia RTX graphics hardware. AMD's Radeon VII already has strong competition in the form of the RTX 2080, making an RTX 2070 Ti a pointless addition to the company's product stack.

While WCCFTECH says that this UserBenchmark listing "has GTX 2070 Ti written all over it", our comment on the matter is that the Userbenchmark listing in question is little more than a strange benchmark listing. Nvidia would be foolish to release an RTX 2070 Ti right now. Yes, there is a £200 price gap between the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 that could be exploited, but it should also be remembered that there is a wider gap between the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. RTX 2080 T anyone?

We don't see Nvidia releasing an RTX 2070 Ti anytime soon, and if they do, it will likely feature 8GB of VRAM and be released in response to AMD's Navi series of graphics cards. Even then that assumes that AMD's Radeon Navi graphics cards exploit the performance gap between the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080, which is by no means guaranteed.
