Nvidia announces GeForce RTX 4070 for $599

Nvidia today announced the GeForce RTX 4070, the latest model in the 40 series of desktop graphics cards and also the cheapest to date. The graphics card will go on sale from April 13.

The RTX 4070 runs on a scaled down version of the AD104 GPU based on the company’s latest Ada Lovelace architecture. Compared to the RTX 4070 Ti which uses the same GPU, the RTX 4070 has 5888 CUDA cores vs 7680 and can boost up to 2475 MHz vs 2610 MHz. Memory is the same on both; 12GB GDDR6X with 192-bit bus, 21Gbps speed and 504Gbps bandwidth.

Like other 40-series cards, the RTX 4070 includes 3rd Gen RT Cores and 4th Gen Tensor Cores, which enable features such as shader execution reordering and DLSS3 frame generation. There’s also the 8th Gen NVENC encoder for AV1 encoding, although there’s only one on the RTX 4070 compared to two on other 40-series cards.

The 4070 has a total graphics power of 200W, with a claimed average gaming power of 186W.

Nvidia claims the RTX 4070 offers the same level of performance as the RTX 3080 while running at half the power. The RTX 4070 also has 12GB of memory compared to the standard 3080’s 10GB. With frame generation, Nvidia claims the RTX 4070 is 1.4x faster than the 3080 and 2.6x faster than the 2070 Super, neither of which support this feature.

The RTX 4070 will be available tomorrow directly from Nvidia as well as partners such as ASUS, Colorful, Gainward, GALAX, GIGABYTE, INNO3D, KFA2, MSI, Palit, PNY, and ZOTAC for a starting price of $599. Customers of 4070 cards and other 40-series cards will also receive the new Overwatch 2 Battle Pass bundle with additional OW2 coins until May 8, 2023.
