Overall Review: Let's be real. At this time, I'm just happy that I was able to get one at MSRP. 5/5; it's working and it's a huge upgrade form the 1070ti. To my fellow gamers. Happy hunting -J
Pros: My last 5 GPUs were all EVGA. Of those 5, only one died near the tail end of the warranty period. This was probably due to the fact that it was running in SLI with an identical card directly below it. It got almost no airflow and all the heat from the card below just rose to the card above. In spite of the fact that the card was by then discontinued and obsolete, EVGA still managed to replace it with an identical model so that my SLI setup would still work. Many years later, one of those two GTX 460s died again, but not before serving out a long life, well beyond the original warranty period. 4 of the 5 GPUs I mention are still in 24/7 service today. A GTX 460, 960, and 1060, as well as a RTX2060. I have handed them down to family members each time I upgraded. Because of EVGAs excellent reliability, all those family members get another upgrade now that I have my EVGA RTX 3070. EVGA makes quality products and their customer support is excellent. I must give a huge thanks to Newegg for their shuffle program and EVGA for not marking up their products on newegg beyond what they charge on their own website. I got my 3070 at MSRP! Other manufacturers that are available on the Shuffle program are at least a couple hundred dollars over MSRP. I was lucky enough to happen to win the chance to buy exactly the card and brand I wanted. This card manages to not look stupid. Lets face it, there are some stupid looking GPUs out there. EVGA even took steps to make it look even better by installing black lips instead of red lips. Why does a GPU have lips you ask? I can't tell you that. But early revisions of these cards were almost entirely black, but with a weirdly shaped bright red part at the end. The internet hated it and EVGA responded not only by changing the design on new models, but also offering anyone with a red lips model a free replacement fan shroud with black lips at no cost! (Just email email@example.com). This is just another example of what a great company EVGA is.
Cons: This features addressable RGB LEDs you can control with EVGA software, but unfortunately only the EVGA logo is illuminated, NOT the "RTX 3070" part. This seems to be common among many products that feature RGB, they tend to light up their brand name more than anything else. I would prefer that I could also lite up the part that points out what a great GPU I have, not just the brand.
Overall Review: I haven't had the time yet to test this extensively with many games, but I can run Red Dead Online at max quality with the FPS pegged at 75 FPS (vertical synced on a 75Hz Monitor). Like the rest of the world, I wish this had a little more RAM so I could be confident that I'm future ready. Coming from a RTX2060 with 6GB,and a GTX1060 with 6GB before that, this 8GB doesn't seem like a big increase...especially when the RTX 3060 has 12GB. It makes no sense to me, but people say there are reasons for this. I just hope that in a few years time I will not have to sacrifice quality settings on more modern games to keep my memory usage in check. For the price I paid, I don't think 16GB would be too much to ask, but from the sound of things.....it would be overkill anyway.
Pros: - Solid 1440p performance in all current titles - DLSS and Ray Tracing work as I had expected, and add great performance value - Boost Clocks are consistent around 1950 MHz on the stock cooler at 67C - Fans are reasonably quite given the amount of power/heat this card can pull/generate
Cons: - Still hard to find at MSRP, but the Newegg shuffle is a great way to eventually get the GPU you want - No real cons about the card, works as advertised
Overall Review: Great 1440p performance. I can play most of my games at High/Ultra with Ray Tracing on when DLSS "Quality" is enabled. With easily over 60 fps, and in some cases 100+ fps. A massive step up with the stock XC3 cooler from my GTX 1080 that I had OverClocked on a water cooler. I'm very happy with my purchase, and will continue to trust EVGA when I purchase future GPUs.
Pros: Great performance for 4k@60fps given reasonable settings
Cons: Took me almost a year to buy one (thank to the shuffle though, I got it!)
Overall Review: Is a computer component
Pros: Can run pretty much any game I throw at it, maxed out at 1440p. Paired with a Ryzen 5800X, Destiny 2 runs at 99% GPU usage but steadily between 110-136fps. BFV maxed out in HDR is mind-blowing at 120fps. Build quality is pretty good, the aluminum back plate is an excellent touch. 3 year warranty from EVGA.
Cons: Card does run a bit hot, which is expected. Peak ranges from 72-76C with auto fan profile.
Overall Review: Replaced my aging GTX 1060 6GB SSC. Quite the upgrade jump! Got this one bundled with an EVGA 700W BQ power supply which I didn't need but that's the Newegg Shuffle for ya. Be patient and your time will come to snag one of these legendary cards!
Overall Review: Happy that the logo glows, I didn't want to spend extra on an RGB video card but the logo is color changing so it fits the rest of my PC build My VR Headset has great resolution now and I can have it at a higher quality while playing heavy games.
Overall Review: Great product, quick setup. Easy to get going
Pros: Power efficient @ 220 watts It's not stupid huge
Cons: Fans are quietish
Overall Review: Good Card
Pros: low temps and excellent frame rate. I come from a 580 8GB so it's a big upgrade.
Overall Review: I love the GPU
Pros: Card works well and cool
Overall Review: Would recommend this card to anyone who loves to game.
