Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070: Rumors speak of 5,888 ALUs and 250 watt TDP


Even before the GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB, which Nvidia has canceled, has appeared under a new name as the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, the GeForce RTX 4070 is now appearing in the usually well-informed rumor mill. On the basis of a trimmed AD104 GPU, 5,888 shader units are to be offered.

5,888 shaders and 12 GB GDDR6X for the GeForce RTX 4070


While the AD104-400 graphics processor intended for the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti with 7,680 shader units is only half the size of the GPU of the GeForce RTX 4090 (test), the GeForce RTX 4070 ditches another 23 percent of the ALUs and gets 5,888 shaders, resulting in 64 ROPs and 184 tensor cores, according to the usually well-informed Twitter users @kopite7kimi and @harukaze5719.

Accordingly, the GeForce RTX 4070 has the following specifications:

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070*

  • AD104-250-A1
  • 292 mm² (TSMC N4)
  • 5,888 shader units
  • 46 streaming processors
  • 184 Tensor processor cores
  • 36 megabytes L2 cache
  • 12 gigabytes GDDR6X
  • 21.0 Gbps@192-bit
  • 250 watts TDP

*) not officially confirmed!

The pure computing power would also be almost a quarter lower than with a GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and drop from 40.1 TFLOPS to 30.7 TFLOPS.

In terms of performance, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is expected to be presumably on par with a GeForce RTX 3090 (test) or even GeForce RTX 3090 Ti (test), while the GeForce RTX 4070 should position itself in the range of a GeForce RTX 3080 (test).

To be enjoyed with caution

While the specifications of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti have now been confirmed by on-board partners such as Colorful, the details of the GeForce RTX 4070 are still included to be used with caution and classified as a rumor.
