Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 looks set to beat the RTX 3090 Ti as updated hardware specifications of the GPU surface
We previously reported that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 is rumored to pack 7,168 CUDA cores, 10 GB of GDDR6 memory running at 18 Gbps on a 160-bit wide bus, and a total power budget of 300 W. The information came to us through serial leaker @kopite7kimi. Interestingly, the leaker has now updated the configuration of the RTX 4070.
Per the leaker, the RTX 4070 will have 7,680 CUDA cores, 12 GB of GDDR6X memory operating at 21 Gbps, and a 192-bit wide memory bus. The total bandwidth for the GPU comes out to be 504 GB/s. The TGP is reportedly staying the same at 300 W.
If you have been paying attention to the Nvidia “Lovelace” rumors, you’ll know that, save for the 300 W TGP, these are the exact specifications that kopite leaked for the RTX 4070 Ti a few days back. Even the board number, PG141-SKU331, is the same.
Due to the much better hardware, kopite7kimi has now mentioned a Time Spy Extreme score of more than 11,000 for the RTX 4070 as compared to the 10,000 that was rumored last time. According to VideoCardz, the TSE score means that the GPU is potentially more powerful than the RTX 3090 Ti.
Is this the final hardware profile of the RTX 4070? We don’t know, as Nvidia can change the configuration of the GPU anytime before launch which is still a ways out as the RTX 4070 and the RTX 4080 have supposedly been pushed back to 2023.
