GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming X 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 a dual-fan thermal design using TORX 3.0 fans for improved airflow and optimised heat dissipation. This video card uses Zero Frozr to eliminate fan noise in low-load situations, and also has RGB Mystic Light lighting, and anti-bending backplate. This video card has good overclocking potential.


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 1710 MHz in Boost Mode, providing a 6% overclock 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 225W, 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 MSI Gaming X 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
