Nvidia’s new RTX 3070 Ti is fresh out of Computex 2021 alongside the RTX 3080 Ti, but won’t hit shelves until June 10. Up until this point, we only had Nvidia’s cherry-picked benchmarks to gauge performance, which pitted the card against its past equivalents rather than other cards in the RTX 3000 or RDNA 2 lineup.
Now that reviews for the card are live ahead of its release, we have a much clearer view of how the GPU performs against other models in the Ampere or AMD family. Its $599 MSRP is 20% higher than its non-Ti sibling, but it doesn’t look like the best graphics card when it comes to value for money, offering up to a 10% performance increase. Sadly, this is pretty modest compared to Nvidia’s RTX 3060 Ti, and even the RTX 3080 Ti.
The card also seems to pale in comparison to AMD’s similarly priced RX 6800 – a card that still hasn’t had a chance to flex its muscles with the upcoming FidelityFX Super Resolution tech yet.
