This is what the GeForce RTX 4070 Founders Edition looks like. The most compact model of the new line was first shown on renderings

Insider Moore’s Law is Dead has published renderings of the likely next new product in the GeForce RTX 40 line – the GeForce RTX 4070 Founders Edition 3D card. As noted, large photos of various fragments of this model have already been published on the Web (insiders do not merge the entire photo of the cards in order to protect their sources from possible subsequent sanctions from Nvidia), and now, in fact, they have been put together and presented in the form of a 3D model.

The RTX 4070 will be the smallest model in the series, taking up two slots in a PC case. There are also two fans here, the motherboard is traditionally half as long as the video card itself. But in general, if you do not take into account the dimensions, the cooler is similar to that used in the older GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080.

The bezel-mounted fan is a signature feature of the GeForce RTX 40. According to an Nvidia engineer, the larger diameter fan provides more airflow (and therefore more efficient cooling) while being quieter than the smaller diameter models.

And while the renders are reported to be 99% accurate and based on real photos, it’s not yet clear if the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Founders Edition will be in the lineup. For example, this option was not provided even for the canceled GeForce RTX 4080 12GB.

By the way, about the last one. According to Moore’s Law is Dead, Nvidia plans to change the specifications of the GeForce RTX 4080 12GB. How exactly – it is not clear, but you should not count on something cardinal. Naturally, this map will be released under a different name.

Moor’s Law Is Dead insider has his sources in the industry. Earlier, in 2021, he correctly predicted the release of six Alder Lake processors (K and KF series) along with the Intel Z690 chipset, and also accurately indicated the price of the Radeon RX 6700 XT before its official premiere.

666 W and two potentially dangerous 12VHPWR connectors at once. Galax GeForce RTX 4090 HOF unveiled

666 W and two potentially dangerous 12VHPWR connectors at once

Galax has fully introduced the GeForce RTX 4090 HOF graphics cards.

There are two models: OC Lab and OC Lab Plus. But in any case, we are talking about the most powerful RTX 4090 on the market and, as a result, the most productive graphics card in general. True, with a caveat.

The fact is that the novelty has two modes of operation. The standard GPU frequency is 2520 MHz for both versions. In Performance mode, the core frequency of OC Lab rises to 2595 MHz, while for OC Lab Plus it already reaches 2625 MHz. And that’s lower than the Asus ROG Strix OC or MSI Suprim Liquid at 2640 MHz. But here the power limit in this mode rises to a symbolic 666 watts. At what frequencies the GPU will work in this mode in real conditions, it is not clear, so we need to wait for the tests. But from the point of view of the power limit, there is no equal to the novelty. By the way, 666 W is more than the allowable 600 W for the new 12VHPWR connector. But everything is explained simply: the new Galax products have two such connectors. True, this means that the risk of incorrectly connecting the power is doubled.

As for the rest, we can note the complete display and a length of 344 mm.

Even the $900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete with the $1200 GeForce RTX 4080. There are tests in 3DMark

Even the 900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete

As we learned today, reviews of the Radeon RX 7900 video cards will be published on December 12th. But the first tests in normal benchmarks appeared today.

Even the $900 RX 7900 XT is enough to compete with the $1200 GeForce RTX 4080.  There are tests in 3DMark

Both of AMD’s new products lit up in 3DMark. Unfortunately, in the Fire Strike and Time Spy tests, which are quite old, it is still much better than the results in Geekbench.

True, the results of AMD’s new products themselves look debatable. In Time Spy at 4K, there is almost no difference between the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT, and both cards perform roughly on par with the GeForce RTX 4080.

In Fire Strike, the younger RX 7900 XT is already successfully fighting the RTX 4080, and the older RX 7900 XTX is about 10% faster. Relative to the RX 6950 XT, AMD’s new flagship provides a gain of 25-30%, which is rather modest. And this can be written down as a minus for AMD’s new products, especially against the background of the catastrophically more powerful RTX 4090.

However, keep in mind the prices. The RX 7900 XT, which in both tests is quite suitable for a direct competitor to the RTX 4080 in terms of performance, is cheaper than the Nvidia card by $300 or 25%! And against this background, the lag behind the RTX 4090 is completely irrelevant. And if you calculate the ratio of performance and price, AMD’s new products look much better than the same RTX 4090, not to mention the RTX 4080.

Of course, in games the situation may be somewhat different, especially since these 3DMark tests are very old. But here it is worth noting that, if you look at the comparison of the RTX 30 and RX 6000 cards, the balance of power roughly corresponds to what the cards show in games.

Radeon RX 7900 Video Card Reviews To Be Published Earlier

The Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards will go on sale on December 13th. Previously, it was believed that the reviews would be published on the same day, but now it turned out that they were not.

Reviews will appear on December 12, that is, the day before the launch. This will allow everyone to get acquainted with the new products and decide on the purchase before the start of sales. On December 12, reviews of both new AMD video cards will be published at once.

Recall that the Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX are priced at $900 and $1,000 respectively. This is in the US and excluding taxes. At the moment, Nvidia has no direct competitors for these new products. The RTX 4070 Ti, with an expected price of $900, won’t be released until January, while the RTX 4080 is priced at $1,200. True, there are rumors that Nvidia will lower the price a little, and even without this the adapter is already available in some places at a price below the recommended one, but it is unlikely that the RTX 4080 will cost $1000 to directly compete with the new AMD flagship.
