Nvidia’s RTX 4070 to Launch at $599: Report

Nvidia’s highly anticipated GeForce RTX 4070 desktop graphics card starts at $599. According to VideoCardz, aims to join the ranks of the best graphics cards. This price, which was revealed during the briefing, claims to have been confirmed by three separate sources.

Assuming this price is correct, let’s take a look at this price. In October 2020, Nvidia launched the GeForce RTX 3070 for $499, so a Lovelace-based card is “just” $100 more, which isn’t too bad considering current inflationary pressures. In that case, the RTX 3070 Ti officially launched in mid-2021 at that price, but only became available in late 2022 at a price close to MSRP. -gen option based on rumored specs.

Perhaps the most apt comparison of the GeForce RTX 4070 is to its stable Ti-suffixed counterpart. There’s a substantial $200 difference between the RTX 4070 and the RTX 4070 Ti (launching at $799). Those worried that Nvidia will only take $50 or $100 off the price of his GeForce RTX 4070 Ti while reducing the number of GPU shaders by 20% should take some comfort here.

At least on paper, cutting shaders by a fifth while reducing prices by 25% looks like an attractive prospect for PC gamers and enthusiasts. The latest information suggests that the RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4070 will share the same memory specs, featuring 12GB 192-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X. So at least that aspect of the RTX 4070 isn’t going to take it down. Perhaps the only other reduction we’ll see is a reduction in GPU clocks, but enthusiasts (and board partners) have been tweaking these to at least get a boost It would be close to a Ti replacement.

* : Rumored spec, not confirmed by Nvidia

Nvidia and its graphics card partners plan to start selling the GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card on April 13th, 2023. With a lower TDP of around 200W from the Ti model’s 285W, one of the RTX 4070’s advantages should be its smaller card. It fits easily into a compact case. We may see some of the first twin-fan Ada Lovelace graphics cards with this new crop. This could help the RTX 4070 get some sales. But of course you have to test and confirm some.

In addition to the RTX 4070 pricing, we also feel better about the price outlook for the inevitable RTX 4060/Ti and RTX 4050/Ti models if the $599 MSRP proves right. And, Nvidia suggests dropping $50-$100 for each subsequent tier, so $400 or less is possible for the RTX 4060. Needless to say, we won’t be seeing new affordable graphics cards anytime soon.
