GeForce RTX 4070 - The 12GB Founder edition  manages to impress 

NVIDIA today unveils their GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card, set to launch on April 13th. At a retail price of $599, the RTX 4070 is a somewhat more affordable option for gamers seeking high-end performance compared to its predecessor, the RTX 4070 Ti, which was initially priced at $899.The GeForce RTX 4070 boasts impressive features such as ray tracing, DLSS, and AI-powered assists, making it an attractive choice for gamers who demand optimal performance. With 5888 CUDA/Shader cores and 12GB of 21Gbps GDDR6X memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface, the RTX 4070 delivers a maximum bandwidth of 504GB/s. It also includes 46 RT cores, 184 Tensor cores, 184 TMUs, and possibly 64 ROPs, using the same AD104 silicon as the RTX 4070 Ti, with 46 out of 60 streaming multiprocessors being enabled. The RTX 4070 provides a more affordable upgrade solution for gamers who want a high-end graphics card, without competing with the cheapest RTX 4070 Ti.
