With the launch of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti
, another high-powered Ampere-based GPU has hit the scene. Or theoretically hit the scene, as is the way with all things hardware these days. All that aside it presents another in-between, performance that sits between the impressive RTX 3070 and the beastly RTX 3080.
As per our review.
When it made its debut late last year, the RTX 3070 arrived on the scene as something that not only matched GeForce RTX 2080 Ti performance, but did so whilst being more affordable and efficient.
Our Full NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Review
For those that need a refresher, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti sat atop the GPU mountain for quite some time -- so much so that its ray-tracing and overall in-game performance is still what you’d consider high-end. So yeah, it's no wonder the RTX 3070 quickly became the most popular GPU in the Ampere range -- a fact you can see first hand in the latest Steam Hardware Survey. It hits that double sweet spot of price and performance. Of course that was before the current climate of GPU scarcity and the dawn of the age of hardware prices ripped from a future where inflation means people buy groceries with wheelbarrows full of cash.
That whole deal aside, incredible QHD 1440P performance, with all of the advances made in real-time ray-tracing and AI-based rendering thanks to NVIDIA’s new Ampere architecture -- is what the RTX 3070 and RTX 3070 Ti are all about. Cranking the details in Cyberpunk 2077 is a sight to behold, as is witnessing the amazing difference ray-tracing can make in a game as seemingly simple as Minecraft. The magical combo of RTX On with DLSS is something that adds a generational leap on top of an existing generational leap, and a key part of the RTX 30 Series story.
Speaking of which, you might be wondering how the RTX 3070 Ti stacks up?
