MSI Schedules NVIDIA Boards Before RTX 4070 Launch Date

I guess most of you have heard of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card. It seems like some hardware makers and retailers are already listing it for sale, even though it hasn't been officially released yet. Although it's common for computer-hardware companies and retailers to list forthcoming products weeks before they should officially start selling, we believe that this could be a way to create hype and excitement among consumers.

MSI has listed its GeForce RTX 4070 Ventus 2X 12G graphics board on their website, which boasts a 12GB VRAM along with a cooling system with two fans. Although the specs suggest that it's a compact graphics card, we should notice that this is just a preliminary listing. The news was mentioned on the official website. However, we should approach this information with scepticism until the official release date arrives.

The Taiwanese MNC Micro-Star International (MSI) plans to release at least eight other versions of the GeForce RTX 4070 close to the NVIDIA 4070 release date. The current lineup includes the Ventus 3X (with a more powerful cooler), two Suprim-branded models, and two gaming-oriented boards for enthusiasts, in addition to the Ventus 2X 12G.

While MSI is likely planning to position GeForce RTX 4070 price higher than NVIDIA's alleged USD 599 (INR 49268.95) price, these are just preliminary announcements. Moreover, the final prices tend to be higher at first. The wide popularity of these listings may imply that the product will be widely accessible after its official launch.

The GeForce RTX 4070 is said to be powered by a scaled-down variant of the AD103 GPU, which has 5888 active CUDA cores. Because NVIDIA has been manufacturing this processor since late summer 2022, there should be plenty of silicon for graphics card makers to construct products on. Keep an eye out for more information on the new fascinating NVIDIA RTX 4070!
