Nvidia RTX 4070 has been spotted on Geekbench ahead of release

With the launch date of the RTX 4070 approaching, it's not surprising to see it appear on benchmark databases. The new entry on the Geekbench website confirms some of the graphics card specs that were still up for debate, including CUDA core count, memory speed, and GPU boost clock speed.

The Geekbench entry (CUDA) spotted by Benchleaks shows the Nvidia RTX 4070 running on an ASRock Z790 Taichi Carrara motherboard with 32GB of DDR5-6000 memory and an Intel Core i9-13900K. In addition to that entry, there's another one for the OpenCL test, but it was deemed invalid by the database “due to an issue with the timers on this system.”

Looking at the specs of the GPU on these entries, we can confirm a few of the remaining rumoured specs of the RTX 4070. For example, we already knew that the card would feature 12GB of GDDR6X memory. However, we only have confirmation that the memory will run at 21Gbps with this entry. Moreover, it confirms the 2,475MHz GPU boost clock speed and the 5888 CUDA core count (46 multiprocessors x 128 cores).

The GPU scored 202,437 points in the CUDA test, putting it on par with the RTX 3080 10G. Compared with its predecessor, the upcoming graphics card scored 25-30% higher. As for the OpenCL test score, even if it was considered invalid, it falls within the expected values. Scoring 177,594 points, it's within the margin of error of the RTX 3080 10G and 12G GPUs. When compared to the RTX 3070, the RTX 4070 scored almost 40% higher.

The Nvidia RTX 4070 is expected to be announced on April 12th and released on April 13th. The GPU's MSRP will reportedly be set at $599.

KitGuru says: Geekbench is far from being an accurate representation of gaming performance. However, it has proven to be somewhat accurate when comparing GPUs from the same manufacturer. Taking that into consideration, getting an RTX 3080 with DLSS 3 and an extra 2GB of VRAM for $100 less doesn't seem that bad of a deal.
