GeForce RTX 4070 in a double pack: Nvidia's middle class should work with significantly less clock


Nvidia's upcoming mid-range, the GeForce RTX 4070, is said to work with significantly less clock speed than the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti (test), which is based on the same AD104 graphics processor and is in turn from Nvidia at the lower end is positioned in the upper class.

GeForce RTX 4070 has a significantly lower clock

Already previously it was considered certain that the GeForce RTX 4070 would be based on the AD104 GPU in the “AD104-250-A1” expansion stage with 5,888 shader units, 64 ROPs and 184 tensor cores as well as 12 gigabytes of GDDR6X on a 192-bit memory IF . The clock rates for the base and boost clocks of the next member of the GeForce RTX 4000 series have now been circulated for the first time and are expected to be significantly lower than expected.

The usually well-informed GPU enthusiast Matthew Smith, Lead Database Editor of TechPowerUp's GPU archive, wants to know from circles of Nvidia's AIB partners that the GeForce RTX 4070 has a base clock of 1,920 MHz and a boost clock of 2,475 MHz, which would mean a minus of 135 MHz or 390 MHz compared to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti.

The Colorfull GeForce RTX 4070 iGame Ultra White OC, an OC model with a custom design, is said to “only” work at up to 2,505 MHz. Previously, a boost clock of at least 2.6 GHz was assumed.

In addition, there should be a second version of the GeForce RTX 4070, as was previously suspected. The “AD104-251-A1” is to be used as a GPU and a presumably modified memory expansion, according to the current consensus in the rumor mill, which has now been confirmed once again.

In his tweet, Matthew Smith also confirmed the existence of two AIB designs of the GeForce RTX 4070, which should serve as a model for onboard partners for AIB graphics cards and their own custom designs.

Previously it was speculated that the “AD104-251-A1” could also be used for a potential GeForce RTX 4060 Ti is planned, but in all likelihood this will be based on the even smaller AD103-350 with 4,352 shader units.

Less clock means less TDP

In terms of TDP, the relatively low clock frequencies will also have an impact. While 250 watts were previously assumed for the GeForce RTX 4070, a total graphics power (“TGP”) of around 200 watts for the AIB graphics cards is now considered realistic.

Information should be treated with caution

The information provided is certainly more substantial than the previous one The mere assumptions about the GeForce RTX 4060 that have been circulating for a month, but ultimately this is not a confirmation from the manufacturer Nvidia.

It is also noteworthy that the GPU expert from TechPowerUp, who is valued in the scene, deleted a tweet in which he had commented on a possible GeForce RTX 4090 Ti or RTX Titan.

It is also doubtful that the manufacturer will follow its graphics card flagship, which has only been on the market for a few months, with a more powerful variant within the next few months, although the performance leap of the GeForce RTX 4090 was already huge and the graphics card is unrivaled anyway will. A GeForce RTX 4090 Ti or a new Titan are dreams of the future.

The GeForce RTX 4070, on the other hand, is expected to be available by the end of February (AD-104-250) or the end of March (AD- 104-251) will start production and be on the market in the course of the second quarter of this year.

However, as always, only independent tests will provide information. ComputerBase will come up with the usual detailed tests and benchmarks in due course.
