The final pricing of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card has allegedly been revealed and it looks like the card will be more expensive than its predecessor.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Priced At $599 US According To Rumor, 20% Higher Price Than Its Predecessor
According to Videocardz, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 will reportedly cost $599 US which is $200 US lower than the MSRP of the RTX 4070 Ti which may sound decent but the card comes with a 20 percent bump in its segment class where its predecessor was priced $100 US lower at an MSRP of $499 US when it launched back in 2021.
Now what this means for gamers is that they will be getting performance around a GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB graphics card with the same 12 GB (GDDR6X) memory at a much lower price point & vastly superior GPU efficiency thanks to the TSMC 4N-based Ada Lovelace graphics architecture. In addition to that, users can also take advantage of faster ray tracing performance, DLSS 3, and video encoding/decoding features that are only available on the Ada graphics lineup.
One should remember that the GeForce RTX 3070 series only featured 8 GB memory so this is a nice bump in memory capacities for the RTX 4070. The pricing difference can easily be offset by a higher memory capacity, faster performance, better efficiency, and tech add-ons so I personally think the RTX 4070 might be a very decent card in its price range. But at $499 US, this card would really have been even better and highly competitive against AMD's mid-range options that might launch soon.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Graphics Card "Rumored" Specifications
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 is expected to feature the AD104-250/251 GPU core. The GPU will feature 5888 CUDA cores, and 12 GB GDDR6X VRAM clocked at 21 Gbps, There seem to be three PCB boards designed for the GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards, two of which we had pointed out last month and another one has been revealed by Kopite7kimi. Two of these are for the reference cards while one is for the Founders Edition as listed below:
- PG141-SKU343 RTX 4070 Reference Edition AD104-250-A1
- PG141-SKU344 RTX 4070 Founders Edition AD104-250-A1
- PG141-SKU345 RTX 4070 Reference Edition AD104-251-A1
Following is a comparison of all the known Ada GPU dies for desktop graphics cards. (Credits to MEGAsizeGPU/TechpowerUP GPU Database for the AD102/AD103/AD104 die shots).
The graphics card is expected to feature a 200W TGP which featured a 220W TGP so you're getting a 10% reduction in power. Also, another interesting thing to note is that the GeForce RTX 4070 core config is very similar to the RTX 3070 which also features 5888 cores but the successor houses the Ada GPU core which should not only bring extra performance but also higher efficiency. The card is also reportedly clocked at 1920 MHz base and 2475 MHz boost clocks which gives it just around 30 TFLOPs of compute power.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card is expected to launch on the 13th of April with reviews for the FE variant landing a day earlier followed by custom AIC reviews on launch day.
