NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4070 Will Consume 186W While Gaming

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070

NVIDIA has finally confirmed the specifications and price of its highly anticipated GeForce RTX 4070 GPU, which is set to become the fourth Ada Lovelace desktop graphics card. RTX 4070 is like to feature AD104 GPU, which has a 36MB L2 Cache (the RTX 4070 Ti has 48MB). While the CUDA core count is not mentioned, the memory bandwidth is lowered compared to the RTX 3070 Ti, with 504 GB/s compared to 608 GB/s.

Memory and Bandwidth

The RTX 4070 will feature 12GB of GDDR6X memory across a 192-bit interface with memory clocked at 21 Gbps. Despite the narrower bus, upgrading from the RTX 3070 to the RTX 4070 will result in higher bandwidth. This means gamers can expect better performance and smoother gameplay, even when running demanding games and applications.

Power Consumption

The new TDP figures for RTX GPUs are typically lower than the real-world gaming scenarios. The RTX 4070 is no exception, as it will consume 186W on average during gaming, less than the 200W Official TDP. This figure is also lower than the average power consumption on RTX 3070 Ti and 3070 non-Ti SKUs. This means gamers can enjoy a more efficient and cost-effective gaming experience with the RTX 4070.

$599 is the official price for the RTX 4070 is – I think it’s very reasonable for its features. It’s unlikely that this price will change in the near future so that you can plan your budget accordingly.

In comparison to the RTX 3070 Ti, the price point is the same, but keep in mind that there is a $100 increase. However, for that extra cost, gamers will get some impressive features, including 4GB more memory, newer RT and Tensor cores, support for DLSS3 tech, and more advanced video encoding (AV1).
