Kopite7Kimi not too long ago took to Twitter to debate the attainable specs of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card. The complicated side of this leak is that NVIDIA has numerous specs that the corporate is rumoring for the upcoming GPU sequence.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Graphics Card Gets Two “Alleged” Specs, One With 12 & Another With 10 GB GDDR6X Memory

We had beforehand reported the specs of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card that was mentioned to supply as much as 7680 cores with 12 GB of GDDR6X reminiscence nonetheless, it seems like NVIDIA shouldn’t be positive what spec they are going to be finalized for the cardboard itself. According to the leaker himself, NVIDIA has two boards for the RTX 4070 graphics card, the PG141-SKU340/341 & the PG141-SKU336/337. Both of those boards will accommodate very completely different GPU configurations and reminiscence specs.

Review the 2 attainable specs of RTX 4070:

PG141-SKU340/341, 7680FP32, 12G 21Gbps GDDR6X, whole card energy 285W, TSE <11000.

PG141-SKU336/337, 7168FP32, 10G 21Gbps GDDR6X, whole card energy 250W, TSE <10000.

I discovered that I had made a typo earlier than, mistaken wrote 341 as 331. 😅

The leaker states that the highest SKU will retain the identical specs as beforehand reported at 7680 cores, 12 GB GDDR6X reminiscence operating at 21 Gbps throughout a 192-bit bus interface, and a TBP of 285W. The different SKU is a bit conservative with simply 7168 cores, 10 GB of GDDR6X operating at 21 Gbps throughout a 160-bit interface, and a TBP of 250W. It is said that both of those configurations can be utilized for the RTX 4070 sequence graphics playing cards however based mostly on the specs, if NVIDIA was to make use of a cut-down config for the RTX 4070, the higher-end variant could be adopted by the RTX 4070 Ti, If not, than the RTX 4070 Ti may find yourself going the AD103 route.

Possible NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Graphics Card Specs Point Up To 7680 Cores, 12 GB GDDR6X Memory, 285W TGP 2

NVIDIA can also be attempting to keep up a powerful competitors to AMD, particularly with the opposing producer releasing its new Radeon RX 7000 sequence later this 12 months. But, it additionally raises the query of whether or not the corporate is struggling to design a graphics card that may provide the identical consistency or higher than AMD within the graphics and efficiency classes. NVIDIA will even be capable of create normal RTX 40 sequence GPUs whereas nonetheless finalizing premium Ti variations to observe. The firm might want to give attention to releasing a purposeful card to please customers with efficiency and worth.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 sequence will land within the high-end class at round $499-$599 US whereas the RTX 4060 will probably be coming in at mainstream pricing of round $300-$450 US. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics playing cards are anticipated to be introduced at GTC 2022 together with the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 however availability is not deliberate until late 2022.
