Rejoice 1440p gamers, the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 is here to save the day by packing everything the RTX 40 series has to offer at a relatively affordable price.
Created to succeed one of the last gen’s best cards RTX 3080, the RTX 4070 instead has a set of rather low numbers of 5888 CUDA Cores, 184 Tensor Cores, and 46 RT Cores. But the advantage comes from it running twice as efficiently and only needing 200W of power to operate at its best, it also has 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM.
But we all know the AI-augmented RTX sauce debuted exclusively for the RTX 40 series is what makes the RTX 4070 triumph. With DLSS 3 on, popular demanding titles can hit 100+ FPS with ease while non-ray-traced benchmarks show it going head-to-head with the RTX 3080. Therefore on average, there is a 40% increment that you can enjoy if you do play those DLSS 3-supported games.
Although NVIDIA Reflex has been around for several years, it is especially when the AI Frame Generation technique provides super smooth gameplay at the expense of latency so Reflex definitely helps to scale that back down to a reasonable level. Shader Execution Reordering (SER), cutting-edge Opacity Micromap, and Displaced Micro-Mesh Engines are among some of the important foundations when it comes to RTX 40 series graphics cards.
On the other hand, industrial users can plug and play the card and then install all the NVIDIA Studio drivers and applications with full compatibility. For those working in NVIDIA Omniverse and rocking an RTX 3070 Ti specifically, expect a 2.8x increase in your workflow speeds in terms of rendering and processing. Video editors will enjoy faster video encoding in general thanks to the 8th gen NVENC with AV1 as well.
NVIDIA rates the GeForce RTX 4070 at USD599 which is about 90% of the cards hopping around that range with the exception of certain models designed to be flashy or gaudy.
