The gaming community has been abuzz with rumors surrounding Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 4070 graphics card. With no official word from the company just yet, enthusiasts and experts have been analyzing leaks and speculation to try and piece together what we might expect from this highly anticipated release. In this article, we’ll take a deep dive into the latest RTX 4070 specs rumors, exploring what improvements we can expect over the previous generation, and what these changes could mean for gamers and content creators alike. So, buckle up and get ready to join us on this exciting journey into the world of cutting-edge graphics technology.
The AD104 SKU with higher specs has been rebranded as the RTX 4070 Ti, while the lower-spec AD104 will now be officially known as the RTX 4070. There have been numerous revisions to the expected specs for the RTX 4070, but the latest information suggests that the GPU will be significantly less powerful than initially anticipated.
Anticipated to be a potent graphics card, the RTX 4070’s performance is hoped to be on par with that of an RTX 3080, though this has yet to be confirmed. Leaks suggest that the RTX 4070 will run on the AD104 chip, which is one step below the top-of-the-line AD102 wafer. Despite this, industry insiders predict that the chip will still offer impressive gaming performance at 1440p and certain 4K esports titles.
Will 4070 be better than 3090?
The RTX 4070 will come with the power and efficiency of the new generation of Nvidia. This GPU will be, then, a slower version of the RTX 4070 Ti. According to the performance we’ve seen from the 4070 Ti and the expected specs of the RTX 4070, the ladder should be as efficient and powerful as the RTX 3090.
Kopite’s tweet suggests that the RTX 4070 is capable of achieving a Time Spy Extreme score of 10,000, which is a significant improvement over its predecessor, the RTX 3070, which only managed around 7,000. This impressive 35% increase in performance puts the RTX 4070 in the same league as the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Ti. However, it is likely to fall somewhere in the middle of the pack if we were to make an educated guess.
