Average Bench: 148% (27th of 713)

Based on 619,642 user benchmarks.  Devices: 10DE 2484, 10DE 2488 Model: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070

Nvidia’s 3070 GPU offers once in a decade price/performance improvements: a 3070 offers 40% higher effective speed than a 2070 at the same MSRP. Given the widespread issues AMD users are facing with 5000 series GPUs (blue/black screens etc.), it is unlikely that AMD would have posed a rational threat to Nvidia’s market share this year. Nvidia’s price cuts are likely related to upcoming console updates. The seven year old hardware in both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 is due an update later this year. Whatever the motivation behind Nvidia’s price cuts, Christmas has come early for PC gamers who can look forward to an unparalleled gaming experience in class leading titles such as Cyberpunk 2077. At ultra settings, with ray tracing enabled, Cyberpunk 2077 redefines the boundaries of immersive gaming. It makes GTA5 look like Tetris in comparison. The combination of RTX+DLSS delivers stunning graphics that are several tiers higher than both AMD's best discrete GPUs and the upcoming consoles. In terms of real world performance, Nvidia’s 3000 series has more or less put AMD’s Radeon group in checkmate. Nonetheless, AMD’s marketers are capable of delivering elaborate BS albeit whilst struggling to keep a straight face. Their marketing infrastructure outsold Intel in the CPU market despite a 15% performance deficit. Without an appropriate social media marketing strategy, Nvidia will probably lose considerable market share, for all the wrong reasons. [Oct '20 GPUPro]

It's good at what it does: play games.

This graphics card has been amazing for me. A lot of people seem to worry about the 8GB of VRAM. I assure you that if you game at 1440P and want to max out every setting(including RT), the 8GB will not bottleneck you. It may be a different story with specific games at 4K, but for 1440P this card is one of the best. I specifically have the Founders Edition and in terms of overclocking, I manage to get +90 on core and +800 on memory. I could have taken it higher but would cause instability. Although, I would recommend this card only if bought at MSRP(like I did with a lot of luck on release day). f you will be paying higher than the stated MSRP, just look into better cards.—Dec '20

The rtx 3070 brings decade price/improvements, providing noticibly higher benchmark results than the 2080 super, and in some ways beating the previous flagship 2080 ti. At a price tag of $500 this card is ideal for 1440p or 4k gaming. —Dec '20

The 3070 is a great middle/upper tier card. 8GB of VRAM is enough, if you check game reqs. it is more than adequate. Even Stalker 2 recomennded settings GPU is a rtx 2070 with 8GB VRAM. I have only seen one game with 10GB VRAM recommended (ultra high setting in 4k!). I hate to see people make up lies about this. It is also sad that some people believes and spreads these lies on the forums etc. Of course if you play in 4k it won't be enough, but you should have known that before buying a 4k monitor... Check the system requirements for current and upcoming games if you don't belive it...—Jun '23
