NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is designed to bring the fight to Radeon RX 6800 non-XT. To achieve their goal, NVIDIA maxed out the GA104 GPU design and switched to faster GDDR6X memory. Unfortunately, this also resulted in an increase in power consumption and heat output.

A shame about the massive power increase relative to the performance boost. I still bet they'll sell out in seconds like the other cards...

I do like the simpler charts showing raytracing performance - much easier to read!

Seems like somewhat of a dissonance between "I can recommend the card, but only barely" and the "Highly Recommended" badge. :confused:

The card itself is a joke for the price and power consumption compared to the 3070. Another money grab from Nvidia, just like the 3080 Ti. And some suckers actually bought the line that they wanted to somehow "help" gamers. :roll:

Thanks, technically there's fewer information in them now, but I felt like that was a reasonable tradeoff

I was expecting a poor results on this card, and this ended worst than what I had in mind. Its more expensive than the non-Ti version, with sub 10% improvement in performance, and a massive increase in power requirements. Considering this is also a card that is mining nerfed, I think it will sell well initially. But not sure if it will continue to sell well over time. This RTX 3070 Ti in my opinion is probably in the same league as the RTX 3060 in terms of wow factor, and that is not a compliment from me.

"highly recommended" to whom ? this product doesn't exist or is out of reach for the majority of reasonable people, the card is not even worth the normal price compared to the 3070 non ti, look at those power draw charts sight...

To be honest I don't really care how poor of a value this is since it wont really exist out there in the real world anyway for the foreseeable future.

Wow... just wow... and not in a good way. I expected the power consumption and thermal load to drastically increase due to the usage of GDDR6X, but I didn't expect that even with the addition of this exotic memory and a shader count increase, we'd have such minimal improvement in performance over the original vanilla 3070. That concern about the card throttling under some workloads due to GDDR6X's extremely high power consumption causing it to run into the power limit still lingers, and I think it might end up being a reality to many owners of this card, as it is for many of us RTX 3090 owners.

Were I in the market for a GPU in this segment, I'm not gonna lie: I straight up wouldn't buy it. The Radeon RX 6800 is a better product in my eyes, especially given NVIDIA's refusal to allow us to have BIOS editors or advanced configuration settings to fix their mess (i.e. increase the power limit enough for the memory to stop suffocating the GPU ASIC), all while AMD has advanced in-driver hardware control settings. I like my hardware to be manageable, and Ampere is everything but that.

A small price reduction on the original would have made it a much better product to compete with RDNA 2 offerings in both segments surrounding it, imho, even in today's absurd market conditions.

Not sure how you can give it a highly recommend badge when just above that badge you can barely recommend it odd. @W1zzard

Other than that sound review, no issues with any of it but the badge.

Should have read the thread I'm not alone.

I waited for this turd? :banghead: :shadedshu: :nutkick:



*EDIT*

It should have had at least a minimum of 10GB VRAM and performance right in the middle of a 3070 & 3080. In my opinion, the only cards worth having this generation is the 3080 & 3060Ti, the rest is just straight up trash.

GA104 8nm 17.2 Btr / 392 sq.mm. On 5nm 3080Ti would be a 4060 at best.

So waiting can only make sense for a new node. At least 6nm with 66Mtr/mm2 density.

5% more performance for 20% higher MSRP and 30% higher power consumption. Great value compared to 3080TI :rolleyes:
NGeedia & AMD don't even pretend to care anymore, it's just a mindless money grab.
RIP value oriented DIY PC builders, you've fallen out of Ngreedia's love :(

the issue with "Highly" Recommended is that "Highly" is just to there to fill the space above "Recommended" in the award image. I couldn't come up with a better idea for the design, back when I made those badges.

I have only four awards to pick from "Budget", "Recommended", "Editor's Choice" and "Innovation".

Ideas?

Maybe you should add at least two more: "Not Recommended" when product is bad in general (Vega 64 at launch) and "Bad value" when it's MSRP price to performance ratio is insanely bad (3080TI).

Don't give it a badge at all if it's a bit meh in your opinion ,does every review get a badge?, If so more badge types.

More badges hmm, "If you can get it", "Gamer recommended" , I mean really you have budget, why not mainstream or high-end too then also a "value recommended".

Just seems odd to barely recommend something that's highly recommended by you, I read the review and found it fair and sound, I was genuinely surprised by the badge.

Shit even a honest barely recommended could and should be possible.
