ASUS ROG GeForce RTX 2070 STRIX OC & MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Armor OC
Kind Graphics Card
Value $600 US & $570 US
It’s been months since NVIDIA launched their Turing primarily based GeForce RTX 20 sequence graphics playing cards. Taking an entire departure from conventional GPU design and making a hybrid structure that features a vary of latest applied sciences to energy the next-generation immersive gaming experiences.
The important thing spotlight of the GeForce RTX 20 sequence was the enablement of real-time raytracing which is the holy grail of graphics and one thing NVIDIA spent 10 years to excellent. Along with raytracing, NVIDIA additionally goals to put bets on AI which is able to play a key position in powering options resembling DLSS or Deep Studying Tremendous Sampling, a novel method of providing the identical high quality because the extra taxing MSAA AA strategies at twice the efficiency.

I’ve appeared and in contrast the efficiency of a number of GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 customized variants and take into account them to be an excellent achieve over their predecessors, the GTX 1080 Ti and GTX 1080. On the subject of pricing, the GeForce RTX 20 sequence are a number of the costliest playing cards NVIDIA has supplied to customers. Right this moment, I shall be having a look on the GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card which is the $500 US resolution and the cheaper of the preliminary Turing RTX 20 sequence household which was introduced final yr.
That includes the identical Turing GPU structure, the RTX 2070 could be seen because the high-performance mainstream choice which is supposed to interchange the GTX 1070 Ti for almost the identical worth level which is illustrated within the desk beneath.

On this evaluate, I shall be examined two absolutely customized GeForce RTX 2070 designs. The reference variants are nice with their new cooling design and good wanting shrouds however AIBs have some actually nice customized options on the market, a number of of which I’ve already in contrast subsequent to one another and with the reference variants.
With just some bucks of asking worth over the reference fashions, the customized variants provide a spread of options resembling triple fan coolers, cumbersome heatsinks, and customized PCBs permitting for higher warmth dissipation, larger air stream and extra overclocking efficiency and clock stability at their respective increase clocks which shall be larger in comparison with the reference variants. The primary barrier with overclocking on Turing GPUs is by far the ability restrict and people who provide the very best energy limits out of the field are typically those with the very best overclocking potential and efficiency output.
The fashions I shall be testing in the present day are the MSI GeForce RTX 2070 ARMOR OC and the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2070 OC Version. The MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Armor retails for $570 US whereas ASUS’s ROG GeForce RTX 2070 STRIX retails for $600 US. I shall be evaluating each playing cards subsequent to one another to search out out which provides a greater worth proposition primarily based on efficiency, overclock capabilities and cooling efficiency.
