Zotac GeForce RTX 4070 Graphics Cards Are Now Available

Reviews for NVIDIA‘s latest mid-range graphics card, the GeForce RTX 4070, went live yesterday. And so far, it has received an “okay” feedback from the review community. People are not blown away by it, but it’s currently the more reasonably-priced GPU in the RTX 40 series lineup. It performs on par with the RTX 3080 in 1080p and 1440p while consuming much less power. Zotac‘s custom-designed RTX 4070 graphics cards are now available, and so far, most of its cards are sticking to the $599 MSRP, except for the more premium AMP AIRO model. You can check out more details about Zotac’s RTX 4070 graphics cards, including where to buy, from the official news release below.
