NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 is a fast desktop graphics card based on the Ampere architecture. It uses the big GA104 chip and offers 5,888 cores and 8 GB GDDR6 graphics memory.
The performance in games and 4k resolution is slightly below a RTX 2080 Ti but clearly faster then the old RTX 2080 Super. For most games, the performance is sufficient for 4k and maximum details. Enabling raytracing however (without DLSS) will lead to a significant lower performance (although the RTX performance was clearly improved compared to the RTX 2000 series).
The GA104 chip is produced in 8nm at Samsung and the power consumption of the RT 3070 is specified with 220 Watt (RTX 2070 Super - 215 Watt).
