Rundown

Sentiment Score[*] 84%
Reviewers from gizmodo have found the following[***]:
The Nvidia RTX 3070 puts 1440p on ultra gaming within mid-range budgets for most desktop builders. Consistent 4K gaming at 60 fps was out of reach of the RTX 2080 Ti, Nvidia's now last-generation high-end graphics card. The new Ampere architecture is more efficient than last-gen's Turing architecture.

  • Fantastic 1440p and 1080p ray tracing performance

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The $499 "Ampere"-based GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition graphics card. It's not the absolute fastest video card on the planet, but it deals almost every other card on shelves today a brutal takedown. In the U.S., you'll be able to buy the card directly from Best Buy and Microcenter.

Pros[**]
  • The best-looking RTX graphics card on the planet
  • Fantastic build quality
  • Tons of new features, including DLSS and Hyper-premium cooling
Cons[**]
  • Pricey for a "Turing" card

pcworld[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from pcworld have found the following[***]:
The $500 GeForce RTX 3070 is just as fast as the $1,200 RTX 2080 Ti. It uses a new design that effectively doubles the CUDA core count compared to the older generation. It also packs more advanced RT and tensor cores—the dedicated hardware used for ray tracing and AI tasks like DLSS. The new graphics card consumes 30 watts less power than its predecessor.

Pros[**]
  • Faster than the RTX 2080 Ti
  • More efficient GDDR6X memory than RTX 2070
  • More powerful than its predecessor
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

techradar[4]

Sentiment Score[*] 88%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 is available starting October 28, at $499 (£469, AU$809) It's powered by the Ampere GA104 GPU, which has 5,888 CUDA cores spread across 46 Streaming Multiprocessors. It's still a dual-slot card, measuring just 9.5 inches (242mm) long, making it easier to fit into smaller cases. Unlike its bigger siblings, it has both its fans on the same side of the cooler.

Pros[**]
  • Smaller and lighter than the RTX 3080 and RTX 2080 Ti
  • Improved ray tracing performance
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

tomshardware[5]

Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition is here — or at least it will be on October 29. This is the third of the new Nvidia Ampere architecture GPUs. It has over 150 percent more FP32 compute and 67 percent more RT TFLOPS, though it still only has the same 448 GBps of bandwidth.

Pros[**]
  • Faster than the previous-gen RTX 3080 and 3090 Ti
  • Much more power efficient than the RTX 2080 Ti
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

trustedreviews[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 83%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Nvidia RTX 3070 is the latest mid-tier graphics card from PC gaming heavyweight Nvidia. It's being pitched as ‘the’ best GPU for most gamers, with the firm quoting it as offering RTX 2080 Ti level performance. But, with AMD Big Navi set to appear in the very near future and expected to radically undercut the RTX line on price, you may justifiably be wondering if it's worth holding off.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful enough to run at 60fps with Ray Tracing on
  • Excellent gaming performance
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
