The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 specs keep changing, and it looks like the RTX 4070 will now come with improved VRAM. The latest next-gen leak comes after reports of the RTX 4070 Ti – a new best graphics contender, apparently featuring a “full-fat” AD104 GPU and boasting RTX 3090 Ti-level performance.

Additionally, the leaker says the update comes with improved benchmarks, as the card can allegedly hit 11,000 points in 3DMark TimeSpy Extreme. For context, that means it will likely outpace current leaders like the RTX 3090 Ti and other high-end SKUs.
The RTX 4070 specs are by no means set in stone, so you should take these rumors with the usual grain of salt for now. If anything, it sounds like Nvidia hasn’t quite decided on its next-gen GeForce GPU lineup, which means it’s hard to predict whether we’ll actually get two AD104 GPUs, or whether the RTX 4070 Ti has been put on hold.
Nvidia’s next-gen GPUs are expected in a few months, but this year we may only get the RTX 4090. However, when it comes to a solid RTX 4000 release date, the rumor mill is undoubtedly muddled, as it can’t decide whether the lineup will be delayed or headed to China in the next few weeks.
If one thing’s for sure, it’s that we’re likely to hear more about Nvidia and AMD’s gaming PC cards soon. The Red Team has already confirmed that the RDNA 3 GPUs are coming “later this year,” so Radeon’s rivals may already be on the field waiting to recharge.
