The specifications of the GeForce RTX 4070 have made their way to the rumor mill. The budget Ada graphics card will feature a cut-down variant of the AD104 die that powers the RTX 4070 Ti. Codenamed AD104-250-A1, the GPU will be paired with the PG141-SKU336/337 board. We’re looking at a core count of 5,888 FP32 cores paired with 12GB GDDR6X memory across a 192-bit, resulting in a peak bandwidth of 504GB/s.
The memory will be backed by 36MB of L2 cache alongside 64 Raster Units and 184 Texture Mapping Units. The RTX 4070 is expected to have a TBP of 250W, a smidge lower than the Ti’s 285W. Last but certainly not least is the pricing. Considering this is a midrange SKU, affordability is key here and will likely determine its success.
