NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3070 Ti has launched earlier this month to augment its RTX 30-series "Ampere" graphics card family, particularly as it faced unexpected competition from rival AMD in the high-end with the Radeon RX 6000 series "Big Navi" graphics cards. The RTX 3070 Ti is designed to fill a performance gap between the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080, letting NVIDIA better compete with the RX 6700 XT and RX 6800, which posed stiff competition to the RTX 3070. Cards from this segment are expected to offer maxed-out gaming at 1440p with raytracing enabled while retaining the ability to play at 4K UHD with reasonably good settings.
The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is based on the same GA104 silicon as the RTX 3070, but NVIDIA made two major changes. First, they maxed out the GPU, enabling all 6,144 CUDA cores as opposed to 5,888 on the RTX 3070. Second, they installed faster 19 Gbps GDDR6X memory instead of 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory. The memory sub-system alone sees a significant 35% uplift in bandwidth. The memory size is still 8 GB.
Ampere comes with the second-generation of NVIDIA's path-breaking RTX real-time raytracing technology that combines raytraced effects, such as reflections, shadows, lighting, and global-illumination, with conventional raster 3D graphics to increase realism. Ampere combines second-generation RT cores with third-generation Tensor cores that accelerate AI, and faster Ampere CUDA cores.
The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Gaming OC is a factory-overclocked custom-design variant of the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti that's not completely over the top like the Gigabyte AORUS Master, but, rather, seeks a balance between cooling, cost, overclock, and power draw. Clocked at a rated boost frequency of 1830 MHz, the card sits roughly in the middle of the frequencies available on custom designs.
Given current market conditions there is no MSRP available for the RTX 3070 Ti Gaming OC; it's currently sold at around $1200, roughly $50 above the cheapest RTX 3070 Ti cards available right now.
