Over the last few weeks, more than a few rumours have appeared on the internet suggesting something which, frankly, seemed impossible. The upcoming Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 was coming to a gaming performance roughly the same as that seen from the behemoth 3090 Ti.
Because of what the argument is accustomed to, generational performance gaps rarely become so substantial (not just in this direction). A generation is typical but a model reflects the nuances of rough comparative performance (i.e. 10.80 to 2070, 2080 to 3070 us. The 4070 will only effectively represent the upper mid tier of the 40XX series, but it seems strange that it might compete and possibly beat the most famous 30XX graphics card series.
Should this actually happen? Well, after a new leak from @kopite7kimi, the answer still seems to be yes. This time, however, we can have a good idea of how Nvidia will make that happen.

Nvidia GYE RTX 4070 = 300 Ti?
Obviously, Nvidia 4070 shouldn’t really rival the 3090 Ti with a lot of competition. According to what we know so far, it has significantly fewer CUDA and significantly less VRAM. How would that be if it were not possible? In one leak last week, one of the last two factored in that was the implementation of a much higher memory bus speed that would be 40-45% faster than originally stated.
So far, so good, right? We can see what it gets better.
You know, but this is not surprising yet, why didn’t it be in this new leak? Well, now it’s being suggested that the boost clock speed for the 4070 might be pushed by 2.8GHz and perhaps even more. The 4070 does not lack the ‘bare’ resemblance of the massive CUDA cores pictured on the 3090 Ti, but it appears that the masses of CUDA cores have risen too much in the past, but this demonstrates that it seems to be an improvement to the performance levels.
Now no, I’m not expecting Nvidia 4070 to be a higher workload GPU. And, in fairness, all leaks have mostly suggested that we are purely looking at games performance. That, if the 4070 is truly going to get in the face of the 3090 Ti, what can we expect in the 4080, 4080, 4090, and 4090 Ti?
You’re wrong, but discovering the truth is definitely going to be fun!
What do you think?
