GeForce RTX 4070 gets official performance claims
NVIDIA is readying for the launch of the new GeForce desktop GPU.
The slide you see above confirms the price of $599 and the release date of April 13th. But neither the price nor the release date are a secret anymore. Meanwhile, we received many questions about should one expect from the new RTX 40 release, so first let’s look at what NVIDIA claims.
Officially, the card is targeting gaming experience at 1440p with 100 FPS. What is important is that this number assumes ray tracing and DLSS3 are enabled. NVIDIA is now going big on using DLSS3 in their marketing. There is hardly any mention of performance claims without DLSS or raytracing.
According to NVIDIA, the RTX 4070 should offer the same performance as the RTX 3080, both cards without Frame Generation. The RTX 4070 will be 1.2x faster than RTX 3070 Ti and 1.3x faster than RTX 3070 when DLSS2 is used. NVIDIA claims that with DLSS3 and FG, the RTX 4070 will be 1.4x, 1.7x and 1.8x faster respectively to RTX 30 GPUs.
NVIDIA 1440p gaming charts now list twice as many games with Frame Generation than without it. The second part showing titles that have no DLSS3 is probably what most reviewers will focus on with their testing, simply to demonstrate gen-to-gen performance improvements.
Leaving official data aside, the RTX 4070 should be 15% slower on average than the RTX 4070 Ti in gaming. The gap will widen in favor of RTX 4070 Ti at 4K resolution. This is based on the review data that was provided to us early. However, results will vary depending on resolution, game quality settings and testing platforms. Not to mention DLSS2/DLSS3 being included into testing.
