Another day and the latest rumor is that NVIDIA has reportedly set the price for its upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 at $599. The mid-range graphics card will be, to date, the lowest-priced card in the RTX 40 series but that won’t likely be the case for long with at least two more cards below it that are expected to be released soon as well. At $599 this card will be priced $200 less than the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. NVIDIA has recently updated its store page to reflect most of the expected upcoming releases, but the RTX 4060 Ti is still absent from the list.
Even though NVIDIA has reportedly set the price there is a possibility it may change the MSRP for this card before its expected April 13 launch. Such last-minute decisions have happened before, especially if rival AMD announces anything that could potentially compete at that price point. However, if the GeForce RTX 4070 stays at this price it will replace the former GeForce RTX 3070 Ti which also launched at $599 in 2021. Beyond that, the two cards are quite different in terms of their specifications and continue a trend with the lower-tier RTX 40-series offerings trading blows with their predecessor’s specs. On some specs, the newer cards show noticeable gains, while others are a bit less than before.
