The GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB will be a high-end graphics card by NVIDIA, that is expected to launch in 2020. Built on the 8 nm process, and based on the GA104 graphics processor, in its GA104-400-A1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12 Ultimate. This ensures that all modern games will run on GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB. Additionally, the DirectX 12 Ultimate capability guarantees support for hardware-raytracing, variable-rate shading and more, in upcoming video games. The GA104 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 392 mm² and 17,400 million transistors. It features 5888 shading units, 184 texture mapping units, and 96 ROPs. Also included are 192 tensor cores which help improve the speed of machine learning applications. The card also has 48 raytracing acceleration cores. NVIDIA has paired 16 GB GDDR6 memory with the GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1500 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1725 MHz, memory is running at 1750 MHz (14 Gbps effective).
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB draws power from 1x 12-pin power connector, with power draw rated at 250 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x HDMI, 3x DisplayPort. GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 4.0 x16 interface. The card measures 242 mm in length, 112 mm in width, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch will be 599 US Dollars.
