Reports, speculations and leaks have flooded the internet with information about Nvidia’s new cards. But this happens every year as people are always hyped when it comes to a launch from Nvidia. Although there should be good reason to hype this year ,if the leaked specifications of the RTX cards are similar to the final launch.
The RTX 2070 will bring 4K gaming and VR at an affordable price, if recent leaks regarding the card carry over to the final launch.
VideoCardz had recently leaked the specifications for the RTX 2070. The card will come with 18 Turing SMs and 2304 CUDA cores. Also there are multiple sources that claim, that the RTX 2070 will come with 8GBs of GDDR6 memory. GDDR6 will be the new standard for memory with the launch of the GeForce 20 series, GDDR6 memory is capable of per-pin bandwidth of upto 16 Gbps. So if the RTX 2070 comes with a 256-bit memory interface and the standard 14 Gbps of DDR6 memory then the card will have a total bandwidth of 448GB/s.
According to YouTuber Adored TV the RTX cards will have quite a bump from last generation cards.
Titan RTX – 50% faster than GTX 1080ti (2500$-3000$)
RTX 2080 – 50% faster than GTX 1080 (500$-700$)
RTX 2070 – 40% faster than GTX 1070 (300$-500$)
GTX 2060 – 26% faster than GTX 1060 (200$-300$)
GTX 1050 – 50% faster than GTX 1050 (100$-200$)
Although the RTX 2070 is speculated to be around $400 USD, but it’s extremely unlikely that you will find it at that price. Nvidia does have good improvements with every launch, but they also bump up the price. Expect the RTX 2070 to retail at 500$.
The RTX 2070 is built on the 12nm process, with 8 TFLOPS of single precision compute. The card will have a Memory clock of 1750 MHz, boost clock of 1670 MHz and GPU clock of 1515 MHz. The leaks also suggest that the RTX 2070 is 8% faster than the GTX 1080 and adding to that the 2070 is going to be the cheapest card with support for Nvidia’s Ray Tracing tech.
