The RTX 4070, the next entry in Nvidia’s powerful but pricey Ada Lovelace series, is expected to arrive in April. The tech titan reportedly told its partners that the card would be available in two months, though no specific date was given. VideoCardz claims to have obtained embargo documents from Nvidia revealing the RTX 4070’s release date. The embargo date is To Be Determined (TBD), but the on-shelf date, which is the actual launch, is set for April.
The RTX 4070 is, of course, the little brother of the recently released RTX 4070 Ti (formerly the RTX 4080 12GB). The card, like its sibling, will most likely be based on the AD104 GPU and will include 12GB of GDDR6X memory.
As a non-Ti version, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070’s GPU will be reduced to 5,888 cuda cores and will run at speeds ranging from 1,920 MHz to 2,475 MHz.
In comparison, the RTX 4070 Ti has 7,680 cuda cores and operates between 2,310 and 2,610 MHz. As a result, the upcoming card is expected to offer 29 TFLOPs of maximum FP32 performance, down from the RTX 4070 Ti’s 40 TFLOPs.
The RTX 4070 Ti has a $799 MSRP, but finding one at that price point is difficult. According to our review of the card, it should not cost more than $700. Nvidia has received plenty of justifiable criticism for its pricing strategy for the Ada Lovelace series, so it will be interesting to see how much, if any, attention it has paid to the RTX 4070. To recap, the RTX 3060 Ti was released with a $400 MSRP, while the standard RTX 3060 cost $330.
According to rumoured benchmarks, the latter card can compete in terms of performance with the RTX 3070 Ti. The Ampere equivalent of the RTX 4060 is flying up the Steam survey GPU charts, but if Nvidia wants to replicate that success, it will need to price the successor competitively.
