14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3070 MSI Gaming Trio 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2020 popular games. This short GeForce RTX 3070 MSI Gaming Trio 8GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 998.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce RTX 3070 MSI Gaming Trio 8GB shows us that Genshin Impact is getting a strong result of 102 FPS, and then we are seeing Watch Dogs Legion predicted to return a strong 102 FPS while another game on our list is the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War which is predicted to get 96 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce RTX 3070 MSI Gaming Trio 8GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Watch Dogs Legion and predict it will be good. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 205 FPS, Medium: 162 FPS, High: 109 FPS and Ultra: 78 FPS. We added Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to our research and predict it will be good with a 73 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Genshin Impact which got 78 FPS at Ultra 1440p.
