Rumors: Following last month’s news that Nvidia seemed likely to release an RTX 4070 (non-Ti version) in April, a new leaker on good track has narrowed the date down to April 13th. While some of the card’s specs seem pretty locked in, we still don’t know the all-important price, though it will likely be more expensive than you might expect.
He was Last month When alleged ban documents from Nvidia revealed that the RTX 4070 was dropping in April. It never mentioned an exact date, but according to hardware leaker hongxing2020 (via Cards video), which was accurate in revealing earlier dates for the RTX 30xx and RTX 40xx, April 13 will be the day the card arrives.

Like the RTX 4070 Ti, the RTX 4070 is slated to come with 12GB of GDDR6X memory via a 192-bit interface for a bandwidth of 504.2GB/s. The upcoming card is also based on the AD104 GPU (variant AD104-250-A1).
Being lower in the Ada Lovelace hierarchy, CUDA’s RTX 4070 has reduced the number of cores from 7680 in the Ti version to 5888. Some believe that TDP will drop from 285W to 200W, although this is not universally agreed upon, Others claim that both cards will have a 285W TDP.
The big question is how much Nvidia will charge for the RTX 4070. The Ada Lovelace series has faced a lot of criticism for its high price, but the green team is unlikely to go against the trend here. For comparison, the RTX 3070 has arrived at a starting price of $499. That almost certainly won’t be the case with the RTX 4070, which many suspect will fetch its $699 MSRP. That’s $100 less than the RTX 4070 Ti (previously the 12GB RTX 4080), though most cards cost more than the recommended price.
Despite its wallet-crushing nature, the RTX 4000 series proved popular enough to break into Steam’s survey. Both RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4080 make it in The main GPU chart is in February, joining the RTX 4090 that arrived a month earlier.
