The NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti has been confirmed for a while now and will launch on January 5th at CES. However, it looks like the company may have been preparing another card in stealth mode and could announce it at CES as well: the GeForce RTX 4070. Fill in the spotted Inno3D Harukaze (via Videocardz) Confirms both cards will launch in Q1 2023.
NVIDIA RTX 4070 is also coming soon
Both the NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti and non-Ti will be based on the AD104 GPU with the Ti variant getting a full fat die and non-Ti die with 5888 CUDA cores. Memory specs haven’t been confirmed yet but could remain the same at 12GB of GDDR6 memory as NVIDIA is unlikely to ship the GPU in 2023 with only 6GB of vRAM (hopefully).
With an expected clock rate of around 2.6GHz, this means the RTX 4070 non-Ti GPU has a performance spec of 30.6 FP32 TFLOPs at a TGP rating of 250W. Since the EEC inserts are one of the last steps in the launch process after which the design cannot be changed, this means that we will see the card launch in the first quarter of 2023 and possibly announced along with its big brother. Not much is known about the RTX 4070 although MLiD has previously done a video on the same.
We’ve heard that NVIDIA was planning to launch the RTX 4070 Ti at MSRP of $899. If that turns out to be the case (NVIDIA appears to be intentionally withholding MSRP confirmation from its partners to avoid leaks), then the RTX 4070 should be priced around $699 or so, making it the “mainstream” entry from NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace lineup. With AMD’s price over performance value proposition a bit shaky with its recent launch, the NVIDIA RTX 4070 may be the entry NVIDIA needs to start the transition from the mainstream segment from the RTX 30 to the RTX 40.
