NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 549 US Price Drop

The newly announced prices for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4070 GPUs have been confirmed, with multiple variants available at $549 US across various retailers. These include models like the ASUS GeForce RTX 4070 Dual, MSI GeForce RTX 4070 Ventus OC, Gigabyte WindForce RTX 4070, and ZOTAC GeForce RTX 4070 Twin Edge OC, all now offering the revised pricing.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 GPUs are now priced at $549 US, reflecting a modest 9% reduction. However, this reduction, while decent, may not be considered significant, especially given the competitive landscape with the newly launched AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT graphics card starting at $499 US.


Undoubtedly, this GPU generation stands out as the one with the earliest and most extensive price reductions we’ve witnessed. We’ve observed cards receiving discounts just a week after their release, and certain GPU models seeing significant price drops within a few months of hitting the market. This trend persists as board partners and vendors aim to align their pricing with the prevailing economic factors and supply-demand dynamics. It’s worth noting that these reductions aren’t officially endorsed by NVIDIA but are discounts promoted by board partners and retailers.

Regarding the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 12 GB GPU itself, it does have certain advantages over the RX 7800 XT. For instance, it boasts support for DLSS 3 (3.5) and upcoming features like Ray Reconstruction, which are poised to enhance NVIDIA’s ray tracing performance and image quality compared to AMD’s RDNA 3 GPUs. On the other hand, the RX 7800 XT excels in terms of rasterization performance and offers good value for its performance at 1440p resolution. However, the RTX 4070 stands out for its significantly improved efficiency. The choice ultimately comes down to gamers’ preferences – whether they prioritize superior ray tracing and upscaling capabilities or seek a card that delivers faster rasterization performance and higher VRAM.
