NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 is now going for just $399, a whole $100 less than its sticker price of $499. This card leverages the GA104 GPU with 5,888 shaders (46 SMs), 184 TMUs, and 96 ROPs. The 8GB VRAM buffer is paired with a 256-bit bus, producing an external memory bandwidth of 448GB/s. The graphics core runs at a base clock of 1.5GHz and a boost of 1.725GHz. It has a TBP of 220W and requires a 550W power supply.
Amazon is selling the ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 3070 V2 OC Edition for $399, down from its MSRP of $499 (at the time of launch). This 8GB card is slightly faster than the RTX 4060 Ti in rasterized as well as ray-traced titles and is priced the same across most retailers. At the time of writing, it is the best GeForce GPU by value.
In addition to the RTX 3070, the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060 are also substantially cheaper than before. The former is priced at $332.99, $70 less than its MSRP of $399, while the latter can be bought for $279.99, $50 less than before. We expect the prices of these two SKUs to drop even further in the coming weeks as the RTX 4060 is released.
