The new NVIDIA RTX 4070 graphics card could be on the way, according to the latest leak

The NVIDIA RTX 4070 graphics card has been spotted on a website, suggesting that perhaps the cheaper little brother of the recently released RTX 4070 Ti is on the way.

VideoCardz I have seen a lot of marketing material from the graphics manufacturer Galaxy related to the RTX 4070 Ti GPU, which, as we’ve already mentioned, has just gone on sale, but more interestingly, two of the graphics card boxes you see have “RTX 4070” written on the front.

However, “RTX 4070 Ti” is written on the side and top of the box, so it appears that whoever created these marketing images mistakenly placed an RTX 4070 logo on the front of the box.

But then again, the fact that this box logo is designed and ready could be a hint that the RTX 4070 graphics card is about to be released. Be that as it may, this is just a mere indication, and one must always bear in mind, as with any leaked image, that it could be false.

Rumors are strengthened but don’t get too hopeful soon

To be honest, it wouldn’t even be a particularly difficult fake to pull off, so we should be more cautious about believing everything. But what makes it more likely is that previous rumors state that the RTX 4070 will go on sale in early 2023, probably in the first quarter. So this latest leak reinforces the possibility that the 4070 Ti’s sister graphics card is about to go on sale. (Like some recent regulatory documents that Inno3D filed that mention not only the RTX 4070 Ti but the 4070 bases as well.)

The truth is that the RTX 4070 will use the same GPU chip as the 4070 Ti (the AD104) and the graphics won’t be much different from the Ti version, meaning it won’t be much of an effort for NVIDIA to launch this product. The big question is, will NVIDIA want the RTX 4070 to hit the market now?

While NVIDIA’s actual initial plan is to release the graphics card in Q1, they may decide to push back the date, as another factor for NVIDIA to consider will be whether enough RTX 3000 units have been sold within a month or two. If not, release plans could be delayed with the idea of ​​reducing the existing stock of previous-generation graphics cards sooner, as it could otherwise be impacted by the RTX 4070 launch.

In any case, one thing is clear: Galax needs to be more careful when it comes to preparing its GPU-related materials.

This mistake is just one of many mistakes the company has made recently, including the launch of the RTX 4090 HOF, which was riddled with bugs (such as misinformation in graphics card specifications) and an incorrectly placed banner on the website linking to The company’s “4090 Ti,” a next-gen card that doesn’t exist (yet). And unlike the RTX 4070, we’re sure the 4090 Ti isn’t coming any time soon (though it’s likely it will eventually, perhaps depending on what happens with AMD’s RDNA 3 lineup at the top end).
