As usual, Chinese reviewers have published their findings on the RTX 4070 well ahead of the official embargo. The midrange Ada GPU is slated to launch on the 13th of April with a price tag of $599. It has 5,888 FP32 cores across 46 SMs and has 12GB of GDDR6X memory paired with a 192-bit bus. The memory subsystem is backed by 36MB of L3 cache and 128KB L1 per SM (5.75MB total), resulting in an external bandwidth of 504.2GB/s. The graphics card has a TBP of 200W and goes up against the RTX 3070 Ti, which tops at 290W.
The RTX 4070 was tested at 1440p ultra across many modern titles. The results are within expectations. In most games, the $599 GPU is 15-20% slower than the $799 RTX 4070 Ti. These figures are quite encouraging because the RTX 4070 is being marketed as a 1440p card. Now, if only the price were a little lower.
Look out for our review, where we’ll pit the RTX 4070 against the RTX 4070 Ti, 4080, and the RTX 3070 Ti in over 15 gaming benchmarking, including ray-traced games.
