Possible NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Graphics Card Specs Point Up To 7680 Cores, 12 GB GDDR6X Memory, 285W TGP 1

Kopite7Kimi recently took to Twitter to discuss the possible specifications of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card. The confusing aspect of this leak is that NVIDIA has various specifications that the company is rumoring for the upcoming GPU series.

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

We had previously reported the specifications of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card that was said to offer up to 7680 cores with 12 GB of GDDR6X memory however, it looks like NVIDIA is not sure what spec they will be finalized for the card 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 these boards will accommodate very different GPU configurations and memory specs.

The leaker states that the top SKU will retain the same specs as previously reported at 7680 cores, 12 GB GDDR6X memory running at 21 Gbps across a 192-bit bus interface, and a TBP of 285W. The other SKU is a bit conservative with just 7168 cores, 10 GB of GDDR6X running at 21 Gbps across a 160-bit interface, and a TBP of 250W. It is stated that either of these configurations can be used for the RTX 4070 series graphics cards but based on the specs, if NVIDIA was to use a cut-down config for the RTX 4070, the higher-end variant might be adopted by the RTX 4070 Ti, If not, than the RTX 4070 Ti might end up going the AD103 route.

NVIDIA is also trying to maintain a strong competition to AMD, especially with the opposing manufacturer releasing its new Radeon RX 7000 series later this year. But, it also raises the question of whether the company is struggling to design a graphics card that will offer the same consistency or better than AMD in the graphics and performance categories. NVIDIA will also be able to create standard RTX 40 series GPUs while still finalizing premium Ti variations to follow. The company will need to focus on releasing a functional card to please consumers with performance and price.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 series will land in the high-end category at around $499-$599 US while the RTX 4060 will be coming in at mainstream pricing of around $300-$450 US. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards are expected to be announced at GTC 2022 along with the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 but availability isn't planned till late 2022.
