The Gainward GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Phantom Gaming GS is the company's top-dog RTX 3080 Ti custom design. Thanks to a large triple-slot, triple-fan cooler, the card runs at good temperatures; noise levels can be adjusted due to a dual BIOS with "quiet" mode and performance even matches the RTX 3090.
The Zotac GeForce RTX 3070 Ti AMP Extreme Holo is the highest-clocked RTX 3070 Ti available; it also comes with a huge cooler that’s over 35 cm long. Temperatures and noise levels are excellent, depending on whether you’ve activated the software-switched dual BIOS for "performance" or "quiet" mode.
When the Radeon RX 6600 XT launched with an interface limited to PCI-Express 4.0 x8, lots of discussion emerged about how AMD crippled the bandwidth, and how much it affects the gaming experience. In this article, we're taking a close look at exactly that, comparing 22 titles running at PCIe 4.0, 3.0, 2.0, and even 1.1. Frametimes are included, too.
The ASRock Radeon RX 6600 XT Phantom Gaming comes with the best cooler of all the RX 6600 XT cards we've tested so far. Fan settings are excellent, too: The card is whisper-quiet and runs only 61°C under full load. In our manual OC testing, we saw excellent results, better than all other RX 6600 XT cards.
Sapphire's Pulse is a cost-efficient, no-frills Radeon RX 6600 XT custom design that comes in at only a small price increase over the AMD base price. In our review, we found that the card still achieves excellent noise levels while also keeping temperatures low.
The XFX Radeon RX 6600 XT Merc 308 is a custom-design card that can impress with its ultra-quiet operation. It's pretty much inaudible even when fully loaded, making it the quietest RX 6600 XT we have tested. The card is also of standard-slot height, so it should fit all cases easily.
The Radeon RX 6600 XT Gaming X is MSI's dual-fan, triple-slot flagship for AMD's new Full HD gaming champ. The card comes with an overclock out of the box and runs at great temperatures, while operating very quietly.
The ASUS Radeon RX 6600 XT STRIX OC is a custom design variant with a triple-slot, dual-fan cooler. The card achieves excellent performance in Full HD, giving you 60 FPS or higher in every single game we tested. Temperatures are very low, and overclocking potential is good, too.
The ZOTAC RTX 3090 AMP Extreme Holo is the longest graphics card we ever tested. At more than 350 mm long, this triple-fan, triple-slot monster has enough power to handle all the latest games at 4K resolution. The RTX 3090 GPU is highly overclocked, and the power limits have been raised, too.
The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Gaming OC is a factory-overclocked custom design sporting a new cooling solution. The triple-slot, triple-fan cooler lets air flow through the card and achieves excellent memory temperatures thanks to a new baseplate design. As soon as you activate the "quiet" BIOS, noise levels are good, too.
Finally! AMD has its NVIDIA DLSS competitor ready, and it even works on NVIDIA cards. We're testing the company's new super-resolution technology in five games. The comparison images in our AMD FSR review let you dig into all the finer details, and our performance results cover multiple generations from both AMD and NVIDIA.
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.
MSI's GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Suprim X is built around a massive cooler that achieves impressive temperature levels. What's even better is that the card runs much quieter than any other RTX 3070 Ti tested today: whisper-quiet, even when fully loaded.
The Palit GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GameRock OC is the fastest RTX 3070 Ti we review today. It not only comes with a large factory overclock, but is also pushed forward by a massive increase in power-limit headroom. This ensures that the card can boost higher than competing boards.
With the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti AMP Holo, Zotac sent us their top-dog RTX 3070 Ti. The card comes overclocked out of the box, using a large triple-slot, triple-fan cooler. Along the top edge, the company has placed a visually truly mesmerizing ARGB lighting element.
NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is the green team's answer to AMD's recent Radeon launches. In our testing, this 12 GB card basically matches the much more expensive RTX 3090 24 GB in performance. The compact dual-slot Founders Edition design looks gorgeous and is of amazing build quality.
MSI's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Suprim X comes with a huge triple-slot cooler that's 33 cm long. Its large factory OC makes the card faster than even the RTX 3090. Thanks to great fan settings, the card is the quietest RTX 3080 Ti tested today, even quieter than the watercooled ASUS STRIX LC.
The ASUS RTX 3080 Ti STRIX LC is THE overkill RTX 3080 Ti. It comes with a pre-filled watercooling unit, that provides cooling for the GPU and memory chips. Thanks to a factory overclock to 1830 MHz, this is the fastest RTX 3080 Ti we're testing today, but also the most expensive.
EVGA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti FTW3 Ultra comes with a large factory overclock, which results in out-of-the-box performance higher than even the RTX 3090. EVGA is also including nine additional temperature sensors and a large power limit adjustment range of up to 450 W.
The Zotac GeForce RTX 3080 Ti AMP HoloBlack has the most mesmerizing RGB lighting effects. It also comes with a factory overclock to 1710 MHz and idle fan stop. What sets this card apart from other custom designs is that its energy efficiency is actually better than the NVIDIA reference design.
Palit's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GamingPro is clocked at reference speeds, but doesn't come with a price increase over the NVIDIA MSRP. This makes the card an attractive option for gamers looking for the best 4K performance without overspend for fancy custom designs.
NVIDIA Reflex is a collection of advanced technologies set out to drastically reduce end-to-end system latency and make you a bigger threat on the virtual battlefield. We used the latest iteration of the Latency Display Analysis Tool to thoroughly test how Reflex behaves in practice.
The ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT OC Formula is built using AMD's new Navi 21 XTXH chip, which runs much higher clocks than what the regular RX 6900 XT can achieve. In our testing, this is the first AMD card in a long time to beat NVIDIA's current-generation flagship, the RTX 3090.
The ASRock RX 6700 XT Phantom Gaming D is the first factory overclocked card that's actually faster than the AMD reference. All other competitors failed to deliver any performance gains. Not only out-of-the-box performance is good, overclocking is better than with any other RX 6700 XT, too.
PCI-Express Resizable BAR, pioneered by AMD, seems to be a magic bullet for unlocking additional double-digit FPS gains. NVIDIA finally released their implementation for GeForce Ampere cards. In our PCIe BAR review, we test the feature on RTX 3090, 3080, 3070, and 3060 Ti in 22 games, at Full HD, 1440p, and 4K.
