As with the other Ada Lovelace cards, the 4070 is incredibly efficient. It draws an average of 193W on average in most gaming workloads with a thermal reading of 69C, with clocks hovering around 2700MHz. For reference, the RTX 3070 Ti sips 301W and the 4080 averages 248W.
In line with its $1,200 price tag, the RTX 4080 is 60-80% faster than the RTX 4070 in most gaming benchmarks. The RTX 4070 holds a lead of up to 25% over the 3070 Ti. The deltas shrink to under 10% in rasterization workloads while raytracing workloads see the RTX 4070 lead by 15-20%. These numbers make the RTX 4070 faster than the 3070 Ti at the same price point but only by a small margin. The addition of newer rendering techniques most notably DLSS 3, SER, and micromaps are the primary selling points here.
