Multiple different ram sizes for RTX4070


UltraMega

Recommended Posts

The latest information on RTX 4070 is that this model is feature 12GB GDDR6X memory across 192-bit memory bus. This is the same memory configuration as RTX 4070 Ti.
 

GIGABYTE's website's game bundle information page mentioned three different SKUs - RTX 4070 10 GB, RTX 4070 12 GB, and RTX 4070 16 GB. However, this information may not be the final product list, as it still includes the cancelled RTX 4080 12 GB model. The latest news suggests that the RTX 4070 will have a 12 GB GDDR6X memory configuration with a 192-bit memory bus, similar to the RTX 4070 Ti. NVIDIA may release multiple variants based on the board, and GIGABYTE's information may refer to some of these dropped variants.

Gigabyte RTX 4070 may come with a number of different RAM configurations to choose from (guru3d.com)

 

 

Given how Vram limited the 4070Ti and really also the 4080 are for their prices, I wonder if this means Nvidia is considering trying to double dip with some other cards and re-release them with more Vram or if they're just going have a repeat of the 3060 12GB. Seems like Nvidia is trying to do what Apple does with storage but for Vram.

Dont you have the feeling that it will go as well one day to the subscription business model? You buy a GPU and you are an lucky owner BUT "Oh you want as well that your fans on it spin? Well that costs extra - just for 50 Cent/month each fan and the first 2 months are for free"  😄😄😄 

 

At least is this approach tested in Automotive in china 🙄

OR it'll be like the 1060 fiasco with your choice of ram and a different gpu on each version..... Oh, you wanted the gpu with the full amount of cuda cores and tensor cores? U should have bought the card with the higher memory! BUT! We can lease you more cores with a bios upgrade that gets ck'd every 24 hours to make sure your license is current. 🙂 1 kidney and 1 lung for a 3 year license......

Nvidia's pricing scheme's... If you throw in your liver and an eye they'll upgrade you to a 4090ti. 🤣

 

Wuhuuu.. for a 4090ti i would offer both of my eyes… Dont worry, they claim you can even feel the increased FPS (with the “6th sense” on) 😵🤌

Rent VRAM? While possible in a virtualized environment, if it was possible physically Nvidia would jump on it lol.

Hmmm i do believe they find a way to do it same as with Tesla cars - Pay for an update of the driver  and you unlock the full amount of Vram on your card...  OFC you have to pay for the "update" / upgrade... Or lets call it "Latest optimization" or Support for the latest games... Same "modus operandi" has for example Aida64 🤔

 

I just hope they are not getting inspired by this conversation lol... :velo: 😅

Ha, well I guess they could go that route. If they do, I will consider EHW the original cause of inspiration and we can all walk away rich 😛

I can already see the ad; "Sign up for one year of GeForce Now and unlock an extra 8GB of ram on your RTX6550Ti!"

I always figured either it will stay 12GB or go 10GB. 

 

It's really puzzling how stingy Nvidia is with VRAM. Hindsight is 20/20 now that the gen is done, but it was rather strange how big a gulf Ampere started with where top end was 24GB and next one down was 10GB. To this day I wonder why they didn't go down the 20GB 3080 or 3080 Ti route with a 16GB 3070 / 3070 Ti.

 

My tinfoil hat theory is as much as they tried to pretend the 90 cards are "Titans", it behooved them to try to get more gamers worried about VRAM buying higher up then they normally would in the stack.

2 MSRP 3090's at launch would cost $3,000 for 48GB ram. Meanwhile you could get 4 3080's for $2800 and a 3070 for $500. $300 more for the same ram spread over 3 more cards. They actually make more $ by the memory per card sold. (like that's a surprise that nvidia is looking for a profit)😉
