It was solely earlier this week when prolific leaker Kopite7kimi claimed the upcoming RTX 4070 Ti with its full-fat AD104 GPU might “simply” match the RTX 3090 Ti. Now, Kopite has up to date the specs of the non-Ti model of the cardboard, and it appears the RTX 4070 has changed the RTX 4070 Ti, specs-wise, with the one distinction being a a lot decrease TDP.
There may be an replace of RTX 4070.

The RTX 4070 is alleged to make use of the PG141-SKU331 that was beforehand regarded as within the RTX 4070 Ti. It additionally packs 7,680 CUDA cores or 60 Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs), 30 billion transistors, and as much as 160 ROPs. There’s 48 MB of L2 cache, and 12GB of GDDR6X reminiscence at 21 Gbps on a 192-bit bus, giving it a most 504 GB/s bandwidth.
However a essential distinction between the RTX 4070’s new specs and the earlier ones for the RTX 4070 Ti is the TDP. As with different Lovelace leaks, Kopite believes the Ti card will carry a reasonably hefty TDP—400W, which is not removed from the RTX 3090 Ti’s 450W TDP. The RTX 4070, nonetheless, is a 100W decrease at 300W, which might relate to customized designs moderately than Founders Editions. That is just about the identical because the RTX 3070 Ti that Nvidia says has a 290W TDP.
The brand new rumored specs are an enormous enchancment over the beforehand RTX 4070 claims. These had the cardboard that includes the PG141-SKU341 with 10GB of [email protected] and a 160-bit reminiscence bus for 360GB/s bandwidth.
One other thrilling a part of the tweet is Kopite’s alleged Time Spy Excessive rating. They declare the RTX 4070 can now obtain greater than 11,000, up from the earlier 10,000, placing it near a RTX 3090 Ti (Founders Version) rating.
Like all rumors, take this one with loads of salt. It additionally leaves the query of what Nvidia has deliberate for the RTX 4070 Ti—a cut-down model of the AD103 discovered within the RTX 4080 is one chance.
