RTX 4070 price rumors

Will the RT 4070 price meet enthusiasts' expectations or will Nvidia overprice its next available card

Last Updated on

Rumors abound on the expected RTX 4070 price, with YouTuber Moore’s Law is Dead citing a potential $749.99 starting price. A popular Twitter leaker by the name of @hongxing2020 also pointed out a rumored launch date of April 13th for third-party models, with Founders Editions hitting digital shelves a day earlier. Nvidia has not yet given any official announcement, though, which means the information should be taken with a grain of salt. Still, Moore’s Law is Dead is a well-known leaker, so it could very well be based on fact.

Our prediction, an MSRP of $699, is based on Nvidia’s pricing strategy for the RTX 3070, which was released at $499. Seeing how the RTX 4090 and the 4080 also increased the price compared with the last-gen, we expect that the current increase in material costs and inflation could result in a considerable rise in the baseline MSRP, especially if the card boasts a significant performance boost.

Nvidia originally announced two models of the GeForce RTX 4080 – a $1,299 version with 16GB of RAM and a more affordable $899 model with 12GB of RAM. However, the cheaper model was not only equipped with less RAM than its $1,299 counterpart but also featured fewer cores and underwhelming specs, leading to criticism from fans who felt that the card wasn’t worth the asking price. Consequently, Nvidia withdrew the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB from its planned November launch.

Given that the GeForce RTX 3070 has an MSRP of $499, and the least powerful version of the 4080 was priced at $899 before its launch was scrapped, it’s probable that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 will be priced between $500 and $900. However, our estimate is that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 will likely retail for $699. Nonetheless, we will have to wait for the official announcement from Nvidia to determine the actual price.

Is the 4070 worth it?

Considering the specifications and price point, the RTX 4070 appears to be a promising GPU to purchase and wait for. Therefore, if you are looking to have a well-balanced GPU, the 4070 could be worth considering once released. Based on the fact that the xx70 GPUs are the second most popular graphics cards from Nvidia, it is likely that the RTX 4070 will also be a popular choice for users seeking a high-performance GPU.

The RTX 4070 Ti is a powerful graphics card that delivers excellent performance for 1440p gaming. However, Nvidia has reduced the memory system in a manner that diminishes its 4K performance while simultaneously overpricing it by several hundred dollars. Consequently, the GPU provides lackluster value, and depending on your perspective, it can be either subpar or downright unacceptable.
