NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 and GeForce RTX 4070 outlined by new leak
Gigabyte has listed support for the GeForce RTX 4070 again, a month on from outlining 10 GB, 12 GB and 16 GB VRAM variants on its AORUS website. Now, the latest version of the Gigabyte Control Center, 23.03.02.01, contains references to a single GeForce RTX 4070 model, as well as a GeForce RTX 4060 SKU. For reference, it would appear that the two model numbers correspond to the following marketing names:
- GV-N4070AERO OC-12G - Gigabyte RTX 4070 AERO OC 12GB
- GV-N4060GAMING OC-8GD - Gigabyte RTX 4060 GAMING OC 8GB
Seemingly, NVIDIA has settled on 12 GB VRAM for the GeForce RTX 4070, with 10 GB and 16 GB options not mentioned in the Gigabyte Control Center's changelog. While a release date for the GeForce RTX 4060 remains unknown for now, NVIDIA is expected to unveil the GeForce RTX 4070 on April 13, over three months after debuting the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti.
Understandably, the GeForce RTX 4070 will be a cut-back GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. Based on current estimations, the GeForce RTX 4070 will deliver 5,888 CUDA cores on an AD104 GPU, as well as GDDDR6X VRAM operating on a 192-bit bus for a 504 GB/s memory bandwidth. Meanwhile, the GeForce RTX 4060 will utilise slower GDDR6 VRAM with a 128-bit bus for a 288 GB/s memory bandwidth. The GeForce RTX 4060 will rely on the AD107 GPU too, with 3,072 CUDA cores at its disposal.
