3DMark scores and gaming benchmarks for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 have surfaced online courtesy of a Baidu user. According to the benchmarks, the GeForce RTX 4070 is able to reach a score of 44,740 in 3DMark’s Fire Strike test and frame rates as high as 481 FPS in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and while the new GPU appears to have only been tested against the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, averages shared online would suggest a level of performance that matches the GeForce RTX 3080. This echoes the information from a leaked NVIDIA slide yesterday that implied the GeForce RTX 4070 would deliver the same performance as the GeForce RTX 3080, 1.2x the performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, and 1.4x the performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 without Frame Generation. The GeForce RTX 4070 is expected to launch tomorrow for $599, while the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3080 (12 GB) launched at $699 and $799, respectively.

From a VideoCardz report:

A quick check with official 3DMark data actually confirms what NVIDIA has partially claimed. The company revealed that RTX 4070 should offer the same performance as RTX 3080 with DLSS but without Frame Generation. It looks like this performance should also be expected from synthetic tests, where RTX 4070 nearly matches RTX 3080. At the same time, RTX 4070 offers 80% of the Ti SKU performance.
