NVIDIA RTX 4070 Review: Affordable Mid-Range Powerhouse with Ada Lovelace Architecture and DLSS 3

NVIDIA has introduced the RTX 4070, a mid-range GPU priced at $599, aiming to strike a balance between affordability and performance. While it's $100 more than its predecessor, the RTX 3070, the pricing is more reasonable compared to the inflated prices driven by supply chain challenges and demand. The RTX 4070 is tailored for 1440p gaming and features NVIDIA's new Ada Lovelace architecture, boasting 5,888 CUDA cores, a base clock speed of 1,920 MHz (boost to 2,475 MHz), and 12GB of GDDR6X RAM.

The RTX 4070 performed well in tests, delivering excellent 1440p performance with ray tracing enabled and demonstrating the capability for solid 4K gaming. It sits between the RTX 3080 and 3080 Ti in terms of performance, supporting NVIDIA's DLSS 3 technology to enhance ray tracing performance through AI-generated frames. The inclusion of hardware-based AV1 encoder makes it useful for streamers and media creators, providing efficiency in bandwidth usage.

The design of the RTX 4070 includes a sleek metal case, heatsink fins, and two large fans for heat dissipation. It is a two-slot GPU, fitting well in smaller cases. The card's temperature remains under 70 Celsius during testing, and the fans are not intrusive during gameplay.


For gamers with GPUs older than the RTX 30-series, the RTX 4070 at $599 offers a compelling option. While waiting for the RTX 4060 may be prudent for some users, the RTX 4070 stands out as a new king of mid-range GPUs, providing improved framerates and playable ray tracing.
