Hardware leaker Kopite on Twitter has confirmed that NVIDIA has scrapped all plans of launching the AD104 based RTX 4070. The model, in particular, is AD104-275 which was rumored to be canceled before Ada’s launch. However, this tweet confirms that NVIDIA is no longer planning to use this GPU (AD104-275).
RTX 4070 Updated Specifications
The ‘original’ RTX 4070 is no longer under consideration by NVIDIA as per Kopite. Now this can mean one of 2 things. The RTX 4070 will either be downgraded or upgraded; sadly, the former appears to be probable. The RTX 4070 Ti (Rebranded RTX 4080 12GB) will use the AD104-400 GPU which does not leave much room for the 4070 for an upgrade.
We won't see the original RTX 4070(AD104-275).

Harukaze also had reservations regarding NVIDIA’s latest move. In a tweet, the leaker suspects that NVIDIA may push the RTX 4070 to AD106. This matches our aforementioned theory.
에이 설마 AD104가 아니라 AD106을 쓴다거나 그러겠어?

Using Google Translate, the tweet reads:
Hey, could it be that AD106 is used instead of AD104? Ayy, can’t it be… isn’t it?~Harukaze
If this leak along with Harukaze’s guess turn out to be true, then AMD will have a clear chance to dethrone NVIDIA in the budget segment. It’s too early to make guesses on our own, so we should wait for NVIDIA’s call at CES 2023.
