Sources indicate that the official launch of Nvidia’s highly anticipated GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card is just a few days away. Consequently, numerous leaked images of add-in-boards containing the AD104 GPU, codenamed ‘Ada Lovelace,’ has surfaced online. VideoCardz discovered these images and shared them with various individuals, including momomo_us, alexwifi42, and Italian vendor Drako.
The specifications of the Gigabyte, Palit, MSI, and Zotac GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards have been revealed through leaked images, but new information has yet to be provided. Previous leaks have suggested that these graphics cards include a reduced version of the AD104 graphics processor with 5,888 CUDA cores and 12GB of GDDR6X memory. Remember that the authenticity of these leaks may be somewhat dependable, but they are presently considered trustworthy.
Gigabyte is working on four designs for the upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards, each with unique features. According to leaked images, Gigabyte’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards will be available in four different designs, with two of them, the WindForce and Eagle models, featuring a standard 8-pin auxiliary PCIe power connector, while the other two, the Gaming and Aero models, will have a 12VHPWR 16-pin connector. Additionally, all four designs are expected to come with a three-fan cooling system.
The leaked images of the upcoming Gigabyte, Palit, MSI, and Zotac GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards have caught the attention of many due to their extensive triple-wide size and massive cooling systems. It aligns with prior reports by colleague Mark, who highlighted MSI’s intention to release a range of triple-wide add-in boards for the GeForce RTX 4070.

It’s no surprise that the new GeForce RTX 4070 graphics cards will be bulky, considering their GPU’s potential for overclocking. However, more compact options are expected as well, like MSI’s GeForce RTX 4070 Ventus 2X. It has a two-wide cooling system with dual fans that will easily fit into most gaming PCs. It’s important to note that different models of the GeForce RTX cards have various power connections, with some still using the standard eight-pin plugs, while others use the newer 12VHPWR.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that more affordable options from Palit and Zotac will feature a dual-fan setup and 12GB of GDDR6X memory. However, it’s important to approach this information skeptically since it has yet to be officially confirmed.
According to leaks, The top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 4090 Ti is rumored to feature the AD102 GPU with potentially 18,176 FP32 CUDA cores and 24GB of 384-bit 24 GT/s GDDR6X memory and may require up to 600W of power. Its MSRP has yet to be revealed. The GeForce RTX 4090, featuring the same AD102 GPU with 16,384 FP32 CUDA cores and 24GB of 384-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X memory, is expected to have a TBP of 450W and a price tag of $1,599. The AD103-powered GeForce RTX 4080 is set to come with 9,728 FP32 CUDA cores and 16GB of 256-bit 22.4 GT/s GDDR6X memory, with a TBP of 320W and an MSRP of $1,199.
The mid-range GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, powered by the AD104 GPU, is rumored to have 7,680 FP32 CUDA cores, 12GB of 192-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X memory, and a TBP of 285W, priced at $799. The GeForce RTX 4070, also featuring the AD104 GPU, may come with 5,888 FP32 CUDA cores, 12GB of 192-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X memory, and a TBP of 250W, with a speculated MSRP of $599. Finally, the lower-end GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, based on the AD106 GPU, is expected to have 4,352 FP32 CUDA cores, 8GB of 128-bit 18 GT/s GDDR6 memory, and a TBP of 160W, priced below $500.
Leaked images also suggest that most of the graphics cards based on the RTX 4070 will be triple-wide with a massive cooling system, which is unsurprising given the GPU’s potential for overclocking. However, more compact options are available, such as the MSI GeForce RTX 4070 Ventus 2X, which features a dual-fan two-wide cooling system and should fit into most gaming PCs.
Budget-friendly options from Zotac and Palit are also expected to feature dual-fan designs and 12GB of GDDR6X memory, although this information has yet to be officially confirmed. It is worth noting that these are unofficial leaks, so the specifications and designs may still change before the official launch of the RTX 4070. Overall, the RTX 4070 is expected to offer impressive performance for gaming and other graphics-intensive tasks. As more information becomes available, it will be interesting to see how these graphics cards stack up against their predecessors and competitors in the market.
