The new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is set to release on June 10. Since this graphics card is the successor to the RTX 3070, it has been the subject of a lot of speculation about how much better the Ti model is going to be. Thanks for the benchmark leak Chinese video portal BilibiliWell, now we have a better idea of the future performance of the RTX 3070 Ti. Compared to its predecessor, the new card has shown a lot of hope in testing.
Two benchmark results have leaked, each coming from different sources and related to different models of cards. The source of the first leak is Chinese Doge Guy (TecLab), which tested the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Ti gaming OC. It looks like the exact model of the GPU was not to be disclosed, but a few gigabytes slipped past the label and started appearing in the video. This is a card that comes with custom PCB design with 10+2 phase VRM (Voltage Regulator Module). It runs on dual eight-pin power connectors and comes with a single HDMI port and three DisplayPort connectors. The cooler was removed to show the PCB in leaked video.
Gigabyte’s RTX 3070 Ti Gaming OC was tested in both gaming and synthetic benchmarks. The results were then compared to those of the original RTX 3070 and RTX 3080. When tested against its predecessor, the RTX 3070 Ti shows a nearly 10% increase in performance. This increase in frame rate is expected and is comparable to the difference between the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti cards, both of which were released last week.
Compared to the RTX 3070, the RTX 3070 Ti has faster GDDR6X memory modules. Testing shows that the card’s TDP has increased compared to previous models, now requiring up to 325W at full power. Keeping the GPU at a peak temperature of 60°C, the cooling system seems to do its job.
second leak Comes from the Bilibili leaker known as Big Hardware Player. The card in question was made by Chinese brand Colorful, a manufacturer known for producing premium, custom GPUs. This time, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Vulcan-X was tested not only in gaming and synthetic benchmarks, but also in cryptocurrency mining.
Mining Ethereum is exactly what this GPU isn’t meant to shine, as Nvidia attempted to prevent cards from being snatched by crypto miners by implementing a light hash rate limiter. Because of this feature, mining performance drops to half the speed very quickly in testing. The card returns a maximum of 45 MH/s when overclocked and, like the first model, shows an increase in gaming performance of about 10%.
Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will have 4% more CUDA cores than its predecessor. On the other hand, compared to the RTX 3080, this card has about 30% fewer cores. It is paired with a base clock speed of 1,580 MHz and 1,770 MHz when overclocked. The default model will have 8GB of GDDR6X memory, and all cards are said to maintain a 256-bit memory bus interface.
This latest release from Nvidia is a welcome sight, but will likely sell out quickly. Set to hit the market on June 10th, the RTX 3070 Ti is going to come with a starting price of $599 – and a lot of people want to buy it.
