Pros: -Personally I was skeptic about a 2-fan card versus 3 that most RTX 3070s come with but this card stays at reasonable temperatures, in my set up it is about 40 degrees celsius. - I was also lucky that this was at MRSP when purchased. I had been very active for months to try to grab one and it was so rewarding once it said my order was getting packaged - Delivery was within a single day (absolutely amazing) (southern Ontario customer)
Overall Review: I would definitely recommend those who are wanting to get an RTX card to skip the 60 series (and now 50 series) for the 70 series or higher. It just makes sense. I wouldnt want to fork out $1000 or higher if I couldnt max out most if not all settings in all games (2021/2022). Im also using this card primarily for Blender (rendering 3D).
Pros: I'll give some specs to put the following into perspective: PHANTEKS GLACIER ONE AIO AMD ZEN 3 3700X (unlocked, 4.2 - 4.4 Ghz) GIGABYTE X570 AORUS ELITE WI-FI G.SKILL TRIDENT Z NEO DDR4 3600 MHz 32GB (16x2) My monitor is a 1920x1080 with a 60Hz refresh rate. -Competitive price compared to the rest of the sellers, even compared to 3060tis and fellow 3070 sellers! -8GB VRAM. I run Cyberpunk 2077 like it's a dream, even with ray-tracing enhanced to 'Psycho' levels. -DLSS works like a charm -No more throttling (more on that later) -Higher-res textures (Destiny 2 looks like a new game wow) -Fans are quiet, even when under extreme load -My temps idling and under load are barely noticeable. I rarely get above 40C-42C. -My intensive programs such as Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, Blender, and Zbrush are no longer suffering from the 1050ti's restricted memory. -I haven't needed to actually use the included software to OC the card yet, so that's good!
Cons: -ASUS' propriety ARMOURY CRATE and ASUS AURA does not support this graphics' card's subtle lighting, but can override the rest of the lighting on my AIO and RAM sticks just fine? Weird flex, but okay. -The lack of support around the I/O shield makes buying a riser cable, a support bracket, or something similar necessary. I'm personally using Antec's graphics card bracket because it comes with insulators to ensure the metal doesn't rattle-- Only to notice my case came with a bracket. Read your case manuals. -The fact it took until the 40-series are just around the corner to find a 30-series mid-range card for close to MSRP is ridiculous. I kind of champion the LHR part of this card for that as well.
Overall Review: I enjoy this for the price I got it for. It'll serve me well for the foreseeable future, but I can only hope ASUS makes this card compatible with their lighting software. Being forced to change lighting aesthetics to work with the GPU's set default color is not exactly ideal. I upgraded from an MSI 1050ti 4GB card, I believe it was a small factor. This card, even above MSRP was the best deal I could find. I won't lie. I practically panicked and checked my bank several times and pinched myself as well before actually buying it to make sure I wasn't dreaming. 650 base with the tax and two-day shipping bringing it to 700/725 USD? That's super amazing right now.
Pros: Most importantly it fits and is compatible with my motherboard. Upgraded from a 1660 ti gpu for alienware r8. Using multiple software is a lot smoother and playing big games like assassins creed origin doesn't crash the pc anymore.
Cons: It can get hot which makes the fan loud.
Overall Review: It is worth the upgrade if you can afford it. In the end when I was comparing prices and performance, this was the better choice. I wanted performance yet not have something hit the bank hard.
Overall Review: This 3070 is a great card for my i5-11600K
