RTX 4070 & 4070 Ti Specs Leaked

Well known hardware leaker @kopite7kimi has released early specifications of Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 (non-Ti) graphics card. According to the leak, Nvidia decided to use a downsized AD104 GPU for the product. It remains to be seen how this new edition to the Nvidia line-up will rank among existing cards.

Keep in mind that this is preliminary information from an unofficial source, so take it with a grain of salt. As expected, the vanilla GeForce RTX 4070 will be based on the AD104 graphics processor. However, Nvidia decided to cut down to 5888 CUDA cores, or by 23% when compared to the full-fat AD104. Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4070 board will reportedly carry 12GB of GDDR6X memory connected to the GPU using a 192-bit interface. In terms of power consumption, the RTX 4070 is said to be rated for 250W of total board power, down from 285W with the RTX 4070 Ti.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-Series Specifications

Row 0 – Cell 0 GPU FP32 CUDA Cores Memory Configuration TBP
GeForce RTX 4090 AD102 16384 24GB 384-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X 450W
GeForce RTX 4080 AD103 9728 16GB 256-bit 22.4 GT/s GDDR6X 320W
GeForce RTX 4070 Ti AD104 7680 12GB 192-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X 285W
GeForce RTX 4070 AD104 5888 12GB 192-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X 250W

With the AD104 GPU configuration cut down by almost 25 percent, the GeForce RTX 4070 Will likely be significantly slower than the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. But, of course, Nvidia can increase GPU frequency to make up for the ‘lost’ CUDA cores, this may be the case given that the 4070’s power consumption is just 35W lower than the Ti variant.

Reducing the number of active CUDA cores ensures that Nvidia will have plenty of AD104 graphics processors that are good enough to power GeForce RTX 4070 graphics boards without doing extensive binning, which is the sorting of higher quality chips to higher end SKU’s. Furthermore, since the GeForce RTX 4070 will reportedly have the same memory configuration as the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, Manufacturers will be able to use the same boards for both products, further cutting down costs. It’s still to be seen if this will have an affect on the consumer price, or just be soaked up as more profit for the manufacture.

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 are the best graphics cards on the market today, but at $1199 and $1599 (MSRP), they are too costly for most people. In fact, even the upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti — which seems quite powerful— will not be cheap at a rumored $899 price tag.
