Inno3D GeForce RTX 4070 Recommends 8-Pin Power Connector

Unlike the high-end Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-series cards, some custom AIB variants of GeForce RTX 4070, GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, and GeForce RTX 4060 will come with an 8-pin PCIe power connector.

The box of the Inno3D GeForce RTX 4070 was recently shared on the Chinese Social platform, clearly mentioning requirements for an 8-pin PCIe power connector. This model of the GeForce RTX 4070 from Inno3D also seems to be one of the entry-level variants for the card and will likely be sold at MSRP.

The card will also feature a dual-slot cooler and will be the smallest GeForce RTX 40-series card.

Inno3D GeForce RTX 4070

Regarding specifications, the upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 is expected to be based on the AD104-25X GPU with 5888 CUDA cores. The GeForce RTX 4070 will also come equipped with 12 GB of GDDR6X memory on a 192-bit interface.

Furthermore, the total rated board power of the GeForce RTX 4070 is expected to be rated at 200W – 250W, depending on the variant.

With mid-end cards like the GeForce RTX 4070, users might not have to worry about the 12VHPWR 16-pin connector. There were no reports regarding the melting 12VHPWR connector for the GeForce RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti since they are not as power-hungry as the GeForce RTX 4090.

But if there is a Founders Edition card for the GeForce RTX 4070, expect Nvidia to ship it with the 12VHPWR connector instead. Aside from that, some custom high-end variants for the GeForce RTX 4070 might also require a 12VHPWR connector to go above the 225W power limit on the PCIe 8-pin power connector.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 is rumored to launch next month on the 13th of April, while the review embargo is expected to be lifted on the 12th of April, giving users plenty of time, whether they want to go with the new 70 series card from Nvidia.

What would be an acceptable MSRP for the GeForce RTX 4070 from Nvidia?
