Rumor mill: It’s a case of one other day, one other RTX 4000 rumor. Assuming it seems to be correct, the newest declare from an everyday leaker is good news for these with one eye on the RTX 4070, a supposedly mid-range card that might doubtlessly tackle the RTX 3090 Ti.
It was solely earlier this week when prolific leaker Kopite7kimi claimed the upcoming RTX 4070 Ti with its full-fat AD104 GPU may “simply” match the RTX 3090 Ti. Now, Kopite has up to date the specs of the non-Ti model of the cardboard, and it appears the RTX 4070 has changed the RTX 4070 Ti, specs-wise, with the one distinction being a a lot decrease TDP.
There is an replace of RTX 4070.
12G 21Gbps GDDR6X

The RTX 4070 is claimed to make use of the PG141-SKU331 that was beforehand considered within the RTX 4070 Ti. It additionally packs 7,680 CUDA cores or 60 Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs), 30 billion transistors, and as much as 160 ROPs. There’s 48 MB of L2 cache, and 12GB of GDDR6X reminiscence at 21 Gbps on a 192-bit bus, giving it a most 504 GB/s bandwidth.
But a crucial distinction between the RTX 4070’s new specs and the earlier ones for the RTX 4070 Ti is the TDP. As with different Lovelace leaks, Kopite believes the Ti card will carry a reasonably hefty TDP—400W, which is not removed from the RTX 3090 Ti’s 450W TDP. The RTX 4070, nevertheless, is a 100W decrease at 300W, which may relate to customized designs somewhat than Founders Editions. That’s just about the identical because the RTX 3070 Ti that Nvidia says has a 290W TDP.
The new rumored specs are an enormous enchancment over the beforehand RTX 4070 claims. Those had the cardboard that includes the PG141-SKU341 with 10GB of VRAM@18Gbps and a 160-bit reminiscence bus for 360GB/s bandwidth.
Another thrilling a part of the tweet is Kopite’s alleged Time Spy Extreme rating. They declare the RTX 4070 can now obtain greater than 11,000, up from the earlier 10,000, placing it near a RTX 3090 Ti (Founders Edition) rating.
Like all rumors, take this one with loads of salt. It additionally leaves the query of what Nvidia has deliberate for the RTX 4070 Ti—a cut-down model of the AD103 discovered within the RTX 4080 is one risk.
