Expected performance benchmarks for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 graphics cards have been revealed by Kopit7kimi. The leaker claims that the performance metrics in 3DMark Time Spy are based on the expected specifications of these cards.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Performance Revealed in 3DMark Time Spy Benchmark
The leaker doesn’t go into much detail, but says he’s not too sure about those metrics. He did share them, though, and we might get our first taste of where the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 might end up compared to their predecessors. The same leaker published RTX 4090 performance benchmarks a few weeks ago, and we can use that for comparison as well.
RTX 4080, TSE >15000,
RTX 4070, TSE ~10000.
These results are based on the specs I mentioned before.
To be honest, not quite sure yet, except RTX 4090. Well, I don’t care.

You need a better specification.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 specifications, according to rumors
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 will be a reduced AD103-300 GPU configuration with 10,240 cores or 80 enabled SMs out of a total of 84 units. The GPU will be equipped with 64 MB of L2 cache and up to 224 ROPs.
As for memory specs, the GeForce RTX 4080 is expected to rock 16GB of GDDR6X capacity, which is said to be clocked at speeds of 21Gbps over a 256-bit bus interface. This will provide up to 672 GB/s of bandwidth. For power, the TBP is said to be rated at around 420W, which is close to the RTX 4090, and since the memory clocks aren’t as aggressive, it’s likely that the core frequencies will be tuned for maximum graphics performance.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 “expected” specs
Finally, we have the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070, which is expected to be a scaled-down AD104-275 GPU configuration with a slightly higher core count than the RTX 3070 TI (6144 cores) of 7168 cores or 56 SM. The GPU will be equipped with 48 MB of L2 cache and up to 160 ROPs.
As for memory specs, the GeForce RTX 4070 is expected to rock 10GB of GDDR6 capacity, which is said to run at 18Gbps over a 160-bit bus interface. The card can rock a TBP of 300W and the leaker also mentions that the price of this card will not be lower than the RTX 3070 or 3070 Ti graphics cards. Simply put, we can expect a price spike in the ’70’ class graphics segment.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 & RTX 4070 “Rumoured” 3DMark Time Spy Performance
Now coming to the performance benchmarks, the leaker states that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 should score over 15,000 points in 3DMark Time Spy Extreme, which should put it 68% ahead of the RTX 3080 and around 33% faster than the RTX 3090 Ti, the current -gen flagship. But there will be a huge difference between the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080, with the flagship offering a 27% increase, which is huge compared to the last generation, where the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 only had a difference of just 13%.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 is said to score around 10,000 points in the Time Spy Extreme GPU benchmark test. This is a 50% performance increase over the RTX 3070 and matches the RTX 3090 (Non-Ti). That would be some insane performance for gamers if the card ended up priced at $499 in the US. But again we see a huge performance gap between RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 of 50%. Even if NVIDIA releases the RTX 4070 Ti, which adds, say, a 10-15% increase, there will still be a 35% difference in performance between the two segments. The previous generation had a 36% gap between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070, which became even lower to 23% with the release of the 3070 Ti.
Also, it looks like only the flagship AD102 parts with their insane power figures will be able to hit the 2x performance target, while the rest of the lineup sits at 50-70% increases. Once again, the leaker mentioned in his previous tweet that these are conservative estimates, so the final GPU performance could look much better.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards are expected to bring a huge increase in overall GPU performance, and the Ada Lovelace architecture will bring with it a host of new features that we can’t wait to talk about when we get our hands on them. testing.
