NVIDIA is days away from announcing the GeForce RTX 4070, which will be its cheapest Ada Lovelace-based desktop graphics card released to date. Billed as a US$599 card, leaked performance slides point to NVIDIA marketing the GeForce RTX 4070 as a powerful option for 1440p gaming.

Last week, NVIDIA confirmed the existence of a desktop GeForce RTX 4070, which the company is expected to formally launch on April 13. In the meantime, VideoCardz has shared several slides from what appears to be NVIDIA's official launch deck. While VideoCardz's leak reveals a render of the GeForce RTX 4070 Founders Edition, David Giannis has posted two hands-on photos with the same graphics card on Twitter.

Based on the latter, the GeForce RTX 4070 Founders Edition will feature a small housing than its GeForce RTX 4080 counterpart. However, the 16-pin power connector remains, as does its positioning within the heatsink's upper fins. Despite being expected to have a 200 W TDP, the GeForce RTX 4070 looks to contain a full 12VHPWR power connector with four auxiliary contacts that carry sideband signals.

As the images below show, NVIDIA will market the GeForce RTX 4070 as offering the same performance as the GeForce RTX 3080 while consuming 38% less power. DLSS 3.0 with frame generation is said to push the GeForce RTX 4070 beyond the GeForce RTX 3080 in games too, which calculates every second frame using AI rather than rendering every frame. Unsurprisingly, the GeForce RTX 4070 takes an even larger lead over the GeForce RTX 3070 and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.

Allegedly, frame generation will also allow the GeForce RTX 4070 to exceed 100 FPS in numerous triple-A titles at 1440p with maximum graphics settings and raytracing enabled. The GeForce RTX 4070 should be approximately 20% more powerful than the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with frame generation switched off too. NVIDIA has priced the GeForce RTX 4070 Founders Edition at US$599, although its AIBs may set higher prices.
