NVIDIA RTX 4070 graphics card will be unveiled on April 12th
Previously, reports suggested that NVIDIA would release the RTX 4070 graphics card on April 13th. According to the latest leaked product embargo timeline, NVIDIA will indeed commence sales of this card at the specified time, although the release and evaluation periods may differ.
Videocardz has revealed the NVIDIA RTX 4070 product embargo schedule, indicating that the card will be launched on April 12th, simultaneously lifting the embargo and enabling reviews of AIC products with suggested retail prices. However, it remains uncertain whether the RTX 4070 will have a Founders Edition card. On the following day, April 13th, reviews of non-suggested retail price AIC products will be permitted, typically covering overclocked editions.
This embargo strategy may reflect NVIDIA’s desire for AIC partners to promote their graphics cards at the suggested retail prices, allowing for swifter product exposure. In line with prior rumors, the RTX 4070 is expected to utilize the AD104 GPU, similar to the RTX 4070 Ti. However, the specifications will be significantly reduced: L2 cache will be diminished from 48MB to 36MB, SM units will be decreased from 60 to 46, and CUDA cores will be reduced from 7680 to 5888. Nevertheless, the card will still employ 12GB of GDDR6X memory, with a memory bus width of 192 bits, a memory speed of 21 Gbps, a PCB of PG141-SKU336/337, and a total power consumption of 200W.
