NVIDIA confirms GeForce RTX 4070 in performance comparison
The desktop GeForce RTX 4070 has leaked numerous times in the last few months. For example, Gigabyte included a reference to the GeForce RTX 4070 and the GeForce RTX 4060 in a recent Gigabyte Control Center changelog, which it has since removed. Now, NVIDIA has shared a Counter-Strike 2 latency slide with The Verge in which it compares the unannounced 70 series graphics card against the GeForce RTX 3060 and the GeForce GTX 1060.
Seemingly, NVIDIA has not explained why it has compared the GeForce RTX 4070 against two 60 series cards rather than the GeForce GTX 1070, GeForce RTX 2070 or the GeForce RTX 3070. Regardless, the company claims that the GeForce RTX 4070 will offer 27% lower latency than the GeForce RTX 3060 with NVIDIA Reflex enabled. However, this gap extends to 53% when compared with the GeForce GTX 1060.
In fact, NVIDIA states that the GeForce RTX 4070 delivers lower latency with NVIDIA Reflex switched off than the GeForce RTX 3060 with the feature enabled. The latency improvement that NVIDIA Reflex offers has reduced too, with a 20% reduction for the GeForce RTX 4070 but 31% and 35% reductions for the GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce GTX 1060, respectively. NVIDIA is expected to formally announce the GeForce RTX 4070 on April 13. Currently, the graphics card is rumoured to feature the AD104 GPU from the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti but with 5,888 CUDA cores and lower clock speeds but the same 12 GB GDDR6X VRAM.
