NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4070 will reportedly cost $599 -Tc

Prices for RTX 40-series graphics cards may soon drop to Earth… if only a little. VideoCardz sources claims that NVIDIA will price the standard GeForce RTX 4070 at $599. That’s decidedly more affordable than the $799 RTX 4070 Ti, but as much as 2021’s RTX 3070 Ti. Apparently, the days of paying $500 or less for an x070 GPU are over.

You can get more for your money than any 3070 card, at least. The GeForce RTX 4070 will reportedly have the same CUDA core count of 5888 as the regular 3070 and a narrower 192-bit memory bus, but a much higher base clock speed of 1.92 GHz (even the 3070 Ti tops out at 1.58 GHz), more RAM (12 GB vs. 8 GB), and a higher 29 teraflops of 32-bit floating-point computing power (versus 22 for the 3070 Ti). And did we mention that it should use less power than a 3070? While the core count and clock speeds are noticeably lower than the 4070 Ti, it could still provide tangible gains over the last generation.

NVIDIA is said to be releasing the ‘bare’ GeForce RTX 4070 in mid-April. If accurate, the $599 price tag could finally make Ada-based GPUs more affordable for gamers who have refused to pay $799 or more just to get the DLSS 3 enhancement and other benefits of the latest GeForce lineup. However, the trend of increasing prices across the range would also continue. Every RTX 40 GPU to date commands a benchmark price of at least $100 higher than its RTX 30 equivalent. That’s not a huge deal if you’re simply looking for the best card within your budget, but it could prove painful if you want the closest possible parallel to a higher-end earlier model.
