NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card’s ultimate price has supposedly been disclosed, and it appears that the card will cost more than its forerunner.
According to Videocardz, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 will reportedly cost $599 US, $200 US less than the RTX 4070 Ti’s MSRP. While this may sound reasonable, the card’s price has increased by 20% in comparison to its segment class, where its predecessor was initially priced $100 US lower at an MSRP of $499 US.
What this implies for players is that they will get speed comparable to a GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB graphics card with the same 12 GB (GDDR6X) RAM at a much cheaper price point & significantly higher GPU efficiency due to the TSMC 4N-based Ada Lovelace graphics design. In addition, users can take advantage of exclusive Ada graphics capabilities like better ray tracing speed, DLSS 3, and video encoding/decoding.
Remembering that the GeForce RTX 3070 series only offered 8GB of memory, the RTX 4070 offers a welcome increase in memory capabilities. The RTX 4070 might be a very good card in its price range because the price difference can easily be made up for by greater memory capacity, quicker performance, better economy, and technological add-ons.
However, this card would have been even superior and much more competitive against AMD’s upcoming mid-range choices if it had cost $499 US.
