NVIDIA may launch the GeForce RTX 4070 in exactly a month’s time. According to a well-reputed tipster @hongxing2020 on Twitter, the midrange Lovelace graphics card will hit retail shelves on the 13th of April (the same day as my birthday). It is slated to be the first “affordable” RTX 40 series GPU with an MSRP of $699. For reference, that’s the same as the launch price of the GeForce RTX 3080!

The NVIDIA RTX 4070 will leverage the AD104 graphics core, the same as the RTX 4070 Ti. It will feature a heavily disabled die with 5,888 cores across 46 SMs, down from 7,650 (60 SMs) on the latter. The GeForce RTX 4070 will be paired with 12GB of GDDR6X memory via a 192-bit bus and backed by 32-36MB of L2 cache.
The AD104-based GPU will run at a base core clock of 2.3-2.4GHz and a peak boost of up to 2.7GHz. The graphics card will come with a power envelope of 200W. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang is expected to announce the RTX 4070 at the GTC 2023 keynote on the 21st of March.
