Today, a slide appeared on the Web (probably from Nvidia’s official presentation) confirming the main technical parameters and cost of the GeForce RTX 4070. A little later, the first models based on this video card (manufactured by MSI) were found in the catalog of the American retailer Connection. And there is no question of any 600 dollars here.
$ 823 – this is the amount priced at the most affordable option called MSI GeForce RTX 4070 Ventus 2X 12G OC. The MSI GeForce RTX 4070 Ventus 3X 12G OC version is priced at $865, while the MSI GeForce RTX 4070 Gaming X Trio 12G costs $916. Yes, perhaps the prices are not final and may change closer to the official start of sales, but we can already say that we most likely will not see the GeForce RTX 4070 for $ 600.
Recall that the GeForce RTX 4070 should receive 12 GB of GDDR6X memory, 36 MB of L2 cache and a 192-bit memory bus. The performance should be higher than the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.
