Pros: - Runs incredibly cool, rarely getting above 70C - The best looking graphics card I have ever seen - OC - Silent mode BIOS switch is super useful - LCD screen is both super cool looking and useful for getting temps - An overall capable card for 1440p native gaming, overkill for 1080p. You can get great performance in 4K if you can use DLSS. - Tons of RGB all over the card. - Six video outputs (Three HDMI, three DisplayPort) - Surprisingly doesn't sag too much without a support bracket. - Indicator lights on the power connection are good for troubleshooting power issues, and I haven't had any power problems yet.
Cons: - RGB Fusion 2.0 is the absolute worst RGB software I have used to date. Buggy, unpredictable, and often causes issues with lighting (resetting colors or shutting off completely) - Absolutely. Flipping. Massive. 13mm longer than a 3090 FE. Super heavy. Make sure to get a support bracket. This may be a pro if you have a large case and want to fill it up with something. - Uses 2 8 pin connections as well as a 6 pin. I wish they would have gone all out with a triple 8 pin or just 2 8 pin connections. - You will need at least an 850w PSU. - LHR is implemented on this card, as with all 3070 Ti cards. It isn't too much of an issue for most people, but if you are hoping to do some crypto mining when the card isn't in use to get back some of the cost, you won't be able to with this. - This is more of a nitpick, but the LCD screen defaults to a GIF of an egg 🤣(I believe this is the "Chibi Time" mode) - LCD screen could have a little more customizability. An audio visualizer and a more customizable enthusiast mode would be nice. The current selection is still pretty decent.
Overall Review: This is, overall, a good card. It isn't the best value, but I am a big fan of the look and aesthetically pleasing design. It isn't perfect, but I would definitely buy this over a slightly cheaper, uglier card. Most of it goes down to what you want out of a new graphics card. If you actually care about how things look inside your case and are willing to pay a few hundred more, this is the way to go. One issue that I can see is that this will likely cost more than a lower-end 3080. This card will run 1080p and 1440p well, but if you want to play in native 4k this will not offer super competitive performance levels at high settings. If you play games with DLSS, however, you should have a decent experience in 4K. From what I have experienced, DLSS on this card could get you similar performance levels to a 3080 without DLSS. I upgraded to this from a GTX 1060 3GB and the difference is huge.
Pros: -Super powerful while also running extremely cool. Haven't gone above 75C even when running on Ultra settings. I got boost clocking to 2225 MHz, not bad. -Awesome for running games at 1440p @ 165Hz. Haven't tried 4k but seams more than capable. -The OC-Silent mode BIOs switch is a great feature. -LCD Screen is an awesome feature for monitoring Temps & displaying GIFs & Images. -6 video outputs (3 HDMI, 3 DisplayPort 1.4a) -The card looks great, there is plenty of RGB on the card (just wish there was better control features).
Cons: -CHUNKY, Longer than a 3090 & I highly recommend getting a support bracket to deal with sag. -You are reaching 3080 prices with this card. -You should get at least a 850W PSU with this card. -The Aorus Engine software is still lacking in a lot of features and controls. So is RGB Fusion 2.0 which is build into the Aorus Engine. -Wish you could customize the LCD screen more.
Overall Review: Overall, this is a great card performing card if you can get ahold of one (I got lucky thanks to the NewEgg shuffle). It will crush 2k gaming while maintaining low temps, and could probably handle 4K at lower settings. I love the overall look of the Card and it fits nicely into the Lian Li 011 Dynamic Case. The only problem is that it is reaching into 3080 price territory, but I still recommend buying one if you can in this market.
Pros: -Beautiful looking video card -Destroys 1440p gaming -Largest gpu I have ever owned -Temps aren't too high, with the highest I've reached being 70 degrees C
Cons: -Fans can get pretty loud -RGB fusion 2.0 is still a pain to use
Overall Review: Overall a really good product, definetly worth the money, but I wouldn't recommend spending over $1,000 on this card. If you can find one at MSRP, then get one!
Pros: - (Boost Clock) High boost clock speeds (1875MHz vs standard 1770MHz) - (Very Well Cooled) Idles at about 34c. Running FoldingAtHome for a few hours got it up to about 65c (MSI Afterburner screenshot shows this). The cooler uses Gigabyte's Windforce technology and it also has a large area removed from the backplate to increase airflow through the card. (Room probably sits at about 24c and my case only has two fans). - (Quiet) Thanks to the massive four slot cooler, the fans don't turn on unless I'm doing something majorly intensive. - (Beautiful Cooler) The comically large cooler has a nice metal backplate and a good amount of RGB all around. - (Customizable LCD Display) I've used the little LCD display on the side of the cooler to create little themes, one of which should hopefully be attached as a video to this review. - (Display Outputs) This is a minor one, but it has 3 DisplayPort and 3 HDMI outputs.
Cons: - (Massive Size) This GPU is large. And by large I mean humorously LARGE. It's a 4 slot cooler, so vertical mounting it most likely not going to happen unless you jerry rigged it. It's also a decently long. This here is the most important thing. MAKE SURE THIS CARD WILL FIT IN YOUR CASE BEFORE YOU BUY. - (Weight/Sag) Along with the card simply having a massive cooler, the metal backplate adds quite a bit of weight. If you buy this card, you will need something to support it or else the card will sag a terrify amount. If you, like me, don't want to spend on a support bracket, you can use household objects like LEGOs, which I chose because you can adjust the height easily. - (Power Connectors) Unlike most 3070 TIs, this GPU takes 2x 8 pin + 1x 6 pin PCIE power connectors. This is a minor annoyance, but if you're doing something like sleeved cables that are pinned together, you're gonna have trouble finding a 8+8+6. This unusual combination of power connectors, depending on your PSU, can lead to way more cables there than you should need. My PSU only came with 2 double splitter 6+2 cables, so it got very messy. - (Coil Whine) I've very rarely experienced some quiet coil while when I went from idle to high load very quickly.
Overall Review: - I got this product through Newegg Shuffle and it was pretty much my only option for GPU at the time. I don't regret purchasing it because, even though prices have gone down, this card is probably going to stay relevant for a while. - (Conclusion) I'd say you should only buy this GPU if you're going to massively overclock it and you need the gigantic cooler, if you're willing to splurge for aesthetics, or if it's your only option.
Pros: This GPU has a lot of bells and whistles and the added touch of the screen just makes it nearly over the top but looks great. Performs great on my 34 ultra wide monitor and always over 100 fps for high demanding raytracing games.
Cons: This card is massive! Make sure you have room in your case.
Overall Review: I would recommend this card for MSRP. I wouldnt over pay for this product. I won an opportunity on shuffle and decided to buy to go along with my X570 Aorus Master motherboard. Im overall tickled to death with the product and will last me for years along with gigabytes 4 years warranty.
Pros: - Performs quite well and cool; albeit not the best bang for the buck - Completely unnecessary screen, but cool as hell you can put images, gifs, custom text etc.
Cons: -12.7 inches of gpu glory that will probably have you remove a fan -quite a bit of gpu sag but a $10 purchase can fix that
Overall Review: I was a little worried with all the horror stories you hear of receiving some Frankenstein rebuild or a refurbished mess, but Newegg delivered. No one is going to say it's cheap, but when my 980 ti finally crapped out I was happy to find a replacement. All around a tolerable/ good experience.
Pros: 1) Availability through Shuffle 2) Mine runs cool 3) Great 1440p GPU 4) Unicorn puke bonanza [RGB]
Cons: 1) Huge card 2) Awful Gigabyte software support 3) Unicorn puke bonanza [RGB]
Overall Review: I am a new builder and won the chance for this card in the Newegg Shuffle. I was one of the few not disappointed to have it bundled with a motherboard since I needed one anyway. The card arrived well-packaged and sealed. I built my rig on a B550 Aorus Master mobo in a Corsair 4000X case. The card fit easily inside [but sag :( ] and was coupled with a R7 5800X and 4x8GB/3600 MHz C16 Corsair Vengeance Pro memory. During benchmarking/stress testing the GPU averaged +/- 70* C and I got the boost clock to reach 2185 MHz as a newb. I used Unigine Heaven, 3DMark:Time Spy/Port Royal/Fire Strike/CPU Profile, MSI Kombustor and SoTR for stability/benchmarking. Scored 143 FPS on the SoTR benchmarks highest setting. Highest temps seen with the case fully closed were 81* C while running the Time Spy Stress Test [99%]. Overall the experience went as well as can be expected given the current state of affairs. The card has performed admirably, IMO, and I would certainly recommend it for any 2K gamer.
Pros: Great card. So far no issues with any games.
Cons: One of the reasons I really wanted this particular card was for the lcd screen. The software for this is absolute trash. And it does not play nice with any other rgb software you have (ique etc.) after hours of trying to customize the rgb and the lcd light. No luck. Literally unusable. Eventually I gave up and that part of the card is just not being used. Seriously, they need a lot of work with their software or to be able to control these aspects from msi center. Its a huge disappointment for aesthetic purposes. Performance is great. But I would have gotten a different card for just performance.
Overall Review: Great card as long as you dont care about the rgb or being able to use the lcd screen.
