In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Galax SG Edition 8GB.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has a 90 MHz higher core clock speed and 68 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2070. This results in the GeForce RTX 3070 providing 115 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has a 90 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2070 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce RTX 3070 providing 5.8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce RTX 3070 was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2070, and so the GeForce RTX 3070 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RTX 2070.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce RTX 3070 and the GeForce RTX 2070 Galax SG Edition 8GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RTX 2070 has 448 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce RTX 3070, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2070 is massively better than the GeForce RTX 3070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has 5888 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2070 Galax SG Edition 8GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 is 10186 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2070 is 4216. The GeForce RTX 3070 having 5970 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RTX 2070 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce RTX 3070 transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2070. This means that the GeForce RTX 3070 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 requires 220 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2070 Galax SG Edition 8GB requires 175 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 3070 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the RTX 2070. The GeForce RTX 3070 requires 45 Watts more than the RTX 2070 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce RTX 3070 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3070 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2170. Architecture It equips an Ampere GPU Codenamed GA104 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 212 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides the world's best consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: GA102 GPU The central unit runs at 1424MHz and goes up to 1872MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Third Gen GDDR6 through a 320-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 suggests it will be faster than the Geforce RTX 2070 Super, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 3070 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.Overview The GeForce RTX 2070 Galax SG Edition 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the 12nm Turing Architecture and is considered a great 1440p video card. This is a dual-slot graphics card with three 80mm fans equipped with special fan blade design for low noise, high air volume cooling, premium trio copper pipe cooling, all-black design, and RGB lighting. Architecture It equips a cut-down Turing GPU Codenamed TU106, more specifically the TU106-400A-A1 variant which means factory overclocks are permitted. This is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 2304 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing (RTX) technology. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes and 32 RT Cores for ray-tracing. GPU The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1830 MHz in Boost Mode, providing a large 13% overclocked compared to the reference model. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 175W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with one available 8-pin and one 6-pin power connector. Performance The GeForce RTX 2070 offers performance in between the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, albeit also boasting ray-tracing and DLSS support. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 2070 Galax SG Edition 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
