Official NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Slide Confirms Key Specifications, including $599 Pricing


An official slide regarding the GeForce RTX 4070 has surfaced online, confirming the key specifications and what is presumably the final retail pricing of NVIDIA’s fourth Ada Lovelace graphics card for gamers and creators. According to the leaked slide, the GeForce RTX 4070 will retail for $599, and users should find a graphics card that features an AD104 GPU, 12 GB of GDDR6X memory, and a TGP of 200 watts, although it’ll naturally draw less than that under most circumstances, with average gaming power listed as 186 watts. NVIDIA is expected to release the GeForce RTX 4070 on April 13, 2023, while the GeForce RTX 4090, GeForce RTX 4080, and GeForce RTX 4070 Ti are now available for those who want to take advantage of the latest DLSS technologies (e.g., Frame Generation) in select games straight away.

From a VideoCardz report:

In case there was any doubt on what GPU might RTX 4070 use, NVIDIA confirms its AD104 GPU. The specification slide does not mention CUDA core count, but we do learn the card will have 36MB of L2 Cache, (4070 Ti has 48MB). This is still a much more than last-gen RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3070 GPUs, which only had 4MB.

On the other hand, memory bandwidth will be lowered compared to 3070 Ti (504 GB/s vs. 608 GB/s). The RTX 4070 non-Ti is to feature 12GB GDDR6X memory across a 192-bit interface with memory clocked at 21 Gbps. Despite narrower bus, the 3070 to 4070 upgrade path will result in higher bandwidth, though.

As we know, the new TDP figures for RTX GPUs are less likely to correspond to real-world gaming scenarios, those figures are typically lower. The 4070 non-Ti is no exception, it will consume 186W on average during gaming, so less than the soon-to-be ‘advertised’ 200W TDP. This figure is also lower than the average power consumption on RTX 3070 Ti and 3070 non-Ti SKUs.
