Inno3D will equip its upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card with a basic eight-pin auxiliary PCIe energy connector and never a contemporary 12VHPWR energy connector discovered on extra superior merchandise from Nvidia’s Ada Lovelace steady, in line with an image of alleged Inno3D’s bundle printed at Chiphell (through @9550pro).
Assuming that the image of the bundle is legit, it confirms that Nvidia’s AD104-based GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card has a reasonable energy requirement and shall be effective with 150W of energy delivered by an eight-pin PCIe energy cable and as much as 75W from the slot. Reasonable energy consumption is a motive why Inno3D’s GeForce RTX 4070 comes with a relatively simplistic dual-slot cooling system with solely two followers.
Certainly, Nvidia just isn’t going to mandate the utilization of the novel PCIe Gen5 12+4-pin auxiliary energy connector (12VHPWR) on upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 graphics playing cards, our former colleague Igor Wallossek revealed final evening. Whereas a few of Nvidia’s companions may nonetheless equip their board with a 12VHPWR energy plug, others may go along with two eight-pin energy connectors to ship extra energy to the boards and improve their overclocking potential. However at the least there shall be fashions with a basic eight-pin auxiliary PCIe energy connector that’s suitable with present energy provides.
Given anticipated efficiency, -moderate energy consumption, and compatibility, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4070 will probably be a part of the ranks of the finest graphics playing cards.
Primarily based on what we find out about Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4070, it’s set to make use of an AD104 graphics processing unit with 5888 CUDA cores activated (out of 7680 CUDA cores enabled on GeForce RTX 4070 Ti) that shall be paired with 12GB of 21 GT/s reminiscence utilizing a 192-bit interface.
An AD104 GPU in such configuration shall be considerably slower than a full-fat AD104 chip, however this configuration will be sure that the overwhelming majority of processors that Nvidia has could possibly be certified for a GeForce RTX 4070. Moreover, it’s probably that the chip shall be an excellent overclocker.
Nvidia and its companions are anticipated to begin gross sales of GeForce RTX 4070 graphics playing cards on April 13, 2023. The costs of those boards stay a thriller for now.
