"Out of the three GeForce 30 series cards that NVIDIA announced back in September the one I was most excited about was the RTX 3070. The main reason was mainly price, the RTX 3070 is only $499. Lower-priced cards end up getting in the hands of more gamers and with the RTX 3070 NVIDIA is claiming better performance than a $1200 RTX 2080 Ti! That is definitely something to be excited about! This means that more gamers will be able to enjoy faster frame rates, higher resolutions, and of course real-time ray tracing. The RTX 3070 is based off NVIDIA's GA104 silicon with 5888 CUDA cores, 184 Tensor cores, 46 RT cores, 184 TMUs, and 96 ROPs. The card has a base clock of 1500 MHz and boost up to 1725 MHz. The 8GB of GDDR6 memory runs at 1750 MHz (effective) across a 256-bit memory bus. Today we are checking out NVIDIA's own Founders Edition version of the card, which is a first for me. It will be interesting to see NVIDIA's own offering rather than an aftermarket card."
