Nvidia's RTX 4070 launch MSRP is the same as their RTX 3070 Ti
According to Videocardz, Nvidia has now settled on a price for their upcoming RTX 4070 graphics card, telling reviewers in an early press briefing that the graphics card will launch with an MSRP of $599.
With a launch price of $599, Nvidia will be delivering the RTX 4070 with the same day-1 MSRP as their RTX 3070 Ti, and an MSRP that is $100 more than their RTX 3070. For $599, RTX 4070 GPU buyers will recieve a graphics card that reportedly features 12GB of GDDR6X memory (4GB more than the RTX 3070/3070 Ti) and support for features like DLSS 3 (DLSS Frame Generation).
$599 is a significant price decrease over Nvidia's $799 MSRP for their RTX 4070 Ti graphics card, though it is worth noting that Nvidia's MSRP prices are minimum prices for their graphics cards, so expect many, or most, RTX 4070 GPUs to sell at higher prices.
For $200 less than an RTX 4070 Ti, RTX 4070 customers will reportedly receive a graphics card with 5888 CUDA cores (VS 7680 on the RTX 4070 Ti), and a much lower TDP of 200W (VS 285W on the RTX 4070 Ti).
A solid upgrade over the RTX 3070
When compared to the RTX 3070, Nvidia's RTX 4070 features the same number of total CUDA cores (5888), but benefits greatly from Nvidia's architectural changes with their Ada architecture and is rumoured to feature both higher clock speeds and more total memory bandwidth.
With 12GB of GDDR6X memory, Nvidia's RTX 4070 will feature 4GB more memory than the RTX 3070 and offers more bandwidth than the RTX 3070 despite its smaller memory bus due to its use of faster GDDR6X memory. That said, the RTX 4070 should have less memory bandwidth than the RTX 3070 Ti.

If it is real it doesn't surprise me too much. Why? I have explained it before. The 40 series cards that were out that beat all of the 30 series cards were direct competition TO the 30 series cards. Jen did not want to release any of them, these are facts you can verify looking around. There are even videos on the subject, as he admitted to his shareholders that there was still absolute tons of 30 series cards left, and the whole "Manipulate the market" spiel. How do you still get top dollar for your old stock? easy, make the new prices so revolting that only true die hards will buy, and you can then clear the decks.
If this is true? then it is clear that the decks are clearing, and he can finally release a card that is cheaper and not scupper his own sales.
The funny thing is? with 5 minutes of research people could have found this out themselves, and refused to fall into his trap. Once again though? they did.
The price hike over the 3070 seems about right too, as it isn't Samsung. Problem is that price is a pipe dream unless you can get a FE card any way, as the board partners will charge what they like regardless of the FE price.Quote
Arc/amd at the low end and at the higher end pick your poison.
the mid range thou isnt good atm.
for me nothing is worth buying this gen the 6800XT is just to solid and if you had a 3000 series card you don't need it, it's the people that are on something older that are still looking for better prices, it's not going to happen thou.Quote

As I still have a 4770K, I'll probably get a new platform first and invest in a new GPU later on. Maybe the 5000 series will have better pricing *insert clown emoji here*Quote
