Overseas review summary of NVIDIA GPU 'GeForce RTX 3070 Ti'

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, announced by NVIDIA at the same time as the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti , was finally released on June 10, 2021. Along with this, many reviews of 3070 Ti have been released from overseas media, so I immediately checked what the evaluation of the new graphic card is like.

Announced on June 2, 2021, the 3070 Ti is a GPU that is positioned as a successor model to the 'GeForce RTX 2070 ', which is a higher version of the 'GeForce RTX 3070'. Like the 3080 Ti, the GPU core uses the 'Ampere' architecture , which is 1.5 times faster than the 'GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER'.

The specifications are as follows. The big change in the specifications from 3070 is that the memory has been upgraded from GDDR6 to GDDR6X. This increases memory bandwidth by 26%. However, the memory capacity itself is 8GB, which is the same as 3070.

GPU: GA104
Number of CUDA cores: 6144
Memory: 8GB GDDR6X
Memory bus: 256 bits
Memory bandwidth: 608GB / s
Boost clock: 1770MHz
TDP: 290W
Die size: 392mm2
Number of transistors: Approximately 17.4 billion

With a suggested retail price of $ 499, the 3070 was launched as a GPU with an incredibly efficient power-to-performance ratio (FLOPS / watt). The 3070 Ti, on the other hand, has a 20% higher suggested retail price of $ 599 and a 32% higher thermal design power (TDP). Ars Technica points out that NVIDIA's 'Ti' models are usually not as power efficient as the lower 'Ti' -less models. Still, 'it's okay if you see performance improvements commensurate with rising prices and worsening power efficiency.'

But for the 3070 Ti, 'although there is a performance improvement, the increase is not revolutionary, and the 3070 Ti's standing will be between the 3070 and 3080, rather than the NVIDIA design. It may be because it had to be done depending on the position. '

In fact, comparing the 3070 Ti and 3070 with spec numbers, the number of CUDA cores, the number of texture units, the number of Tensor cores, and the number of RT cores increased by only 4.16%, and the increase in boost clock was lower than that. , There is no numerical change in ROP. In addition, when we actually conducted multiple benchmark tests, 'The test scores were almost the same, and the most common result was that'3070 Ti is about 7% higher than 3070'.' Ars Technica writes.

Below is a table summarizing the benchmark test scores by Ars Technica and the average number of frame rates when playing the game with the highest settings for each title. The results clearly show that there is no significant performance difference between the 3070 and 3070 Ti.

3070 3070 Ti 3080
3DMark Time Spy 13334 14408 17230
Assassin's Creed Valhara (4K) 44.9fps 48.8fps 53.5fps
Assassin's Creed Valhara (1440p) 68.6fps 73.7fps 78.2fps
Assassin's Creed Odyssey (4K) 50.3fps 53.9fps 61.3fps
Assassin's Creed Odyssey (1440p) 75.8fps 76.8fps 82.8fps
Red Dead Redemption 2 (4K) 50.8fps 54.9fps 65.8fps
Red Dead Redemption 2 (1440p) 77.1fps 81.3fps 97.6fps
Grand Theft Auto V (4K) 53.5fps 58.8fps 64.5fps

While Ars Technica questioned the position of the 3070 Ti, Eurogamer.net said, 'The concept of offering significantly better performance than the 3070 in the price range between the 3070 and 3080 is great.' 'But in reality, the 3070 Ti hasn't realized the idea mentioned above, and it's enough to see a slight performance improvement compared to the 3070, yet the price is 20% higher. It cannot be said that the performance is improved. '

He added, 'I can't recommend the 3070 Ti, but the 3060 Ti, 3070, and 3080 all offer pretty good value,' he added, as a GPU that can be recommended in terms of price and performance over the 3070 Ti. , 3060 Ti, 3070, 3080 are listed.

Engadget points out that the 3070 Ti is 'a definitive replacement for the 2070 SUPER, but no significant progress from the 3070.' Despite the slight improvement in performance of the 3070 Ti from the 3070, the price has soared by $ 100, and if you add another $ 100, you can buy the much higher performance 3080. 'No one knows if the 3070 Ti will sell,' he wrote.

As mentioned above, the performance improvement of the 3070 Ti is not so much seen from the 3070. Beyond that, the 3070 Ti requires more power than the 3070, so after hours of playing the game, it's 'hotter than the 3070,' Engadget wrote. When actually playing the game in the same environment and configuration, the 3070 leveled off at about 70 degrees, while the 3070 Ti rose to 78 degrees. Therefore, the 3070 Ti has better fan rotation than the 3070.

PCWorld said about the 3070 Ti, 'You shouldn't buy it now. The price is simply stupid. Play the game streaming through NVIDIA's GeForce NOW until the price hike due to global semiconductor shortages subsides. 'Even if the balance between supply and demand isn't as eccentric as it is now, the 3070 Ti isn't a fully recommended GPU, because the 3070 Ti is only 5-10% faster than the 3070.' I wrote it.

The advantages of the 3070 Ti are 'excellent 1440p and 4K game performance', 'gorgeous design', 'ultra-fast GDDR6X memory', 'NVIDIA's excellent software ( G-Sync , DLSS ,Reflex, etc.)' and 'best-in-class level'. 5 points of 'DLSS 2.0 that can realize ray tracing', the disadvantage is '8GB memory may be limited by gaming at 4K resolution in the future' 'Cooling mechanism is not as effective as other RTX 30 models' 'There is nothing better in terms of performance than GPUs in the same price range.' 'Ugly 12-pin power adapter.'

Unless you're a gamer looking for a maximum frame rate on a 144Hz monitor with a resolution of 1440p, 'I recommend the 3060 Ti, which is cheaper than the 3070 Ti,' PC World said. Also, if you want to play games in 4K resolution, we recommend 3080 over 3070 Ti.

PCMag has the advantages of 3070 Ti: 'The card design is close to perfection', 'The frame rate is close to 60fps at 4K resolution with high definition settings', 'Quiet operation is high', 'It is superior to GPUs in the same price range' He cited the four points of 'performance' as the disadvantages of 'the temperature rises when a load is applied' and 'not as compact as the previous model 3070'. 'We have made a solid update from the original 3070 and it will be a wise choice to play the game reasonably well in 4K resolution,' said PCMag.
