Nvidia RTX 3070 Review – 2080 Ti Performance For Cheap

With the RTX 3080 as the introduction to Nvidia’s new generation of video cards, we saw what the next wave of high-end cards is capable of. Relatively speaking, the RTX 3080 offers an intriguing value proposition for enthusiast-level performance at $700 USD MSRP (if you can even find one), outclassing any video card that came before it. But not everyone needs or wants to go for the high-end and, as is tradition, Nvidia likes to roll out lower-spec SKUs over time–so now, we have the RTX 3070, which is a truly impressive card in its own right.

Nvidia has touted the RTX 3070 as performing around the same as the RTX 2080 Ti, which was last generation’s top-tier consumer-level video card. And that’s largely true based on our results. The RTX 3070 carries a $500 MSRP, which is less than half of what a 2080 Ti goes for, so to get that type of performance at a much more approachable price makes high-end PC gaming less of a pipe dream. Especially when factoring in the growing popularity of RTX ray tracing capabilities and the increasing usage of DLSS as a great alternative to antialiasing, the RTX 3070 makes a strong case for those who are still holding out with GTX 10-series (or older) cards.

For the purposes of this review, Nvidia provided the Founder’s Edition of the RTX 3070–keep in mind that board partners’ performance and pricing can vary. We followed a similar structure to our RTX 3080 review to keep a consistent comparison between the other Nvidia cards included in our tests, but focused our analysis on how the 3070 fares against the 2080 Ti, given Nvidia’s claims of how the 3070 stacks against it.
