NVIDIA RTX 4070 Launching in April: 5,888 Cores, 12GB GDDR6X VRAM at ~$500 [Report]

NVIDIA is prepping the GeForce RTX 4070 for launch in April, with early leaks starting to hit the market. Based on the AD104-250/251 graphics core, it’ll feature 5,888 FP32 cores across 46 SMs pulsating at 2,475MHz under load (1,920MHz base clock). The GPU with be paired with 12GB of GDDR6X memory (21Gbps) across a 192-bit bus, resulting in an external bandwidth of 504.2GB/s.

The RTX 4070 will have the same shader density (5,888) as the RTX 3070 and a slimmer 192-bit bus paired with substantially faster GDDR6X memory (14Gbps vs 21Gbps). A large L2 cache buffer of 36MB or higher will offset the weaker shader strength. In general gaming workloads, the RTX 4070 should be 40-60% faster than its predecessor, with ray-traced titles extending the lead to 80%.

According to Videocardz, the GeForce RTX 4070 will be launched sometime in April. The exact release date is unknown, but a mid-month launch is highly likely. We’re looking at a price tag of around $500-$600 (versus $799 for the RTX 4070 Ti) and a TBP of 200W, down from 220W on the RTX 3070.
