The GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card costs less than 600 euros

The GeForce RTX 3070 is the graphics card with the best price-performance ratio. Very enjoyable to play video games in 2K definition, nor is it lacking in assets to enhance your teleworking sessions.

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 EAGLE

It was expected and here we are. Graphics card prices are approaching normal levels, and not just the more expensive models. The most accessible references have also entered the field with reasonable prices.

Latest example: GeForce RTX 3070. This is the graphics card that will fit the largest number as it is very comfortable to play games at 1440p with a high frame rate. You can even taste the joys of 4K thanks to the intervention of DLSS, Nvidia’s internal technology that uses artificial intelligence.

Highlights of the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Eagle

The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Eagle is currently benefiting from a price drop on Rue du Commerce, to fall just below the 600 euro mark. In addition, Nvidia allows you to get 4 games for free from its website.

Highlights of the Gigabyte GeForce RTX3070 Eagle:

  • A sober and efficient design;
  • a design with three fans;
  • compatibility with the latest Nvidia technologies.

A little overclock

On the performance side, with the exception of a small one overclock This factory Eagle graphics card is identical to the reference RTX 3070 Ti. That means you get 6144 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR6X memory, the same super-fast memory found in the Nvidia RTX 3080 and above GPUs. Running on a 256-bit bus, this Eagle provides a 19 GHz memory clock and a total bandwidth of 608 GB / s. The central clock thus gets a modest boost to 1800 MHz, a overclock at 30 MHz relative to the reference.

The result of this design is a card that heats up less. This is quieter than the original, while the performance is identical in games.

What achievement?

This graphics card is a bit more powerful than Nvidia’s base RTX 3070. A card that performs particularly well in 2K definition, and which approaches 60 FPS in 4K. here are some benchmarks made during our test of the GeForce RTX 3070 when it was released.

Sober design

With its efficient design with three fans and rectangular look, this board will not win any awards for its revolutionary design. The Eagle series from Gigabyte is efficient. Once installed, you will still notice some RGB lighting, peripheral game mandatory. A blue slash slopes behind the Gigabyte logo. However, the lighting can be customized with the RGB Fusion 2.0 application.

RTX

At the back there is a metal back plate that helps disperse the heat. On the right side, a significant vent is cut to allow the passage of air to further reduce the temperature. Like the Nvidia Founders series, the Eagle uses a lighter PCB and longer heatsink to draw heat away from the GPU. The third fan is located directly above the rear vent, ensuring air blows through its fins and components. This Windforce 3X cooling system is the same as the RTX 3080 Eagle 10G.

RTX4

Note that this card is thick and takes up 2.5 spaces at the back of the tower. So keep that in mind if you have an expansion card directly below. On the back of the card you will find various connectors. Gigabyte has changed the connector layout a bit compared to the Founders Edition, with two DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI 2.1 ports. The maximum supported image resolution is 7680 × 4320 pixels (or 8K).

Nvidia technology

DLSS is the core of the latest generation of Nvidia cards. The concept of this super-sampling technology is to reduce the load on your GPU by rendering the original image in a lower definition and then using artificial intelligence to enhance the image. This gives the illusion that it was created in a higher definition. An essential technology to be able to enjoy 4K in good conditions.

Other technology, Nvidia Broadcast is a first-choice tool for telecommuters. It brings interesting features, such as the ability to create a virtual green background, or even to eliminate ambient noise during audio calls.

FPS fans can also enable Nvidia Reflex and Nvidia Boost in supported games to reduce latency. Finally, on the video streaming side, the card manages AV1 decoding to take advantage of the latest news from Netflix and other major streaming platforms.

If you plan to use your graphics card for work, you should know that RTX CGUs are very versatile. Applications such as graphical visualization, machine learning, data analysis and artificial intelligence (AI) utilize the computing power of these cards and Nvidia’s technologies. We just tried the Nvidia Canvas software to create a digital work, and the result is well worth it.

Finally stock on Nvidia graphics card

Nearly two years after their launch, the new Nvidia graphics cards are gradually returning to stock. The manufacturer has even created a special “Restock & Reloaded” page that allows you to know the availability of its graphics card.
