NVIDIA’s famous Kopite7kimi leakster is at it again. This time with an update on the specifications of the company’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card. It has been stated that the gaming product might be coming with additional memory, more core, and increased graphics performance which will almost come to par with the RTX 3090 Ti.
The previous leaks from Kopite7kimi shared the same specifications for the RTX 4090 Ti, but with these upgraded specs, it appears that the GeForce RTX 4070 will be taking its place. The RTX 4070 now has the same number of cores and the same memory, all of this with a lower TGP than what was shared before.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 is going to feature the full-fat AD104 GPU with a total of 7680 cores. From the information provided in previous leaks, we do know that the AD104 GPU is going to feature an L2 cache of 48 MB and 160 ROPs which is a massive upgrade. In comparison with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, this is 12 times more in the L2 cache and a 25% increase in the core count.
There is no certainty about the clock speeds as of yet but keeping in mind that the TSMC 4N process is used, the clocks should fall somewhere between the range of 2.0 to 3.0 GHz. This increase in clock speeds comes from the two-node jump by NVIDIA from the 8nm node to straight up 10nm node.
Moving on to the memory, it is expected that the GeForce RTX 4070 will feature a GDDR6X memory of 12 GB clocked at 21 Gbps. It will be spread across a 192-bit bus interface with a 504 GB/s bandwidth. The RTX 4070 Ti was reportedly going to get a TBP of 400W, while the RTX 4070 will stay at 300W. This might be the power limit for custom designs and the Founders Edition might stand at somewhere between 255 to 285.
The entire feature set of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card is nothing short of impressive. It will come featuring all the latest NV feature sets like the 4th Gen Tensor Cores, 3rd gen RT cores, and NVENC Encoder, and Decoder. All this alongside support for all the latest APIs. We are expecting to see all the modern features known to RTX such as the reflex, broadcast, DLSS, ansel, freestyle, and G-SYNC support. Since the performance is expected to match that of the RTX 3090 Ti, which is priced at 1999 USD, we can get a great deal out of this for around 499 to 549 USD.
There is an update of RTX 4070.
