Nvidia releases first party benchmarks for its RTX 3070 graphics card  

Earlier today, Nvidia delayed the launch of its RTX 3070 graphics card, hoping that this delay will allow more gamers to access Nvidia’s newest and most value-oriented Ampere graphics card.

Nvidia has also confirmed that its RTX 3070 will deliver performance levels which are similar to their RTX 2080 Ti, offering “similar or faster performance” across a range of DirectX and Vulkan titles, both ray-traced and rasterised. 

Below, you can Nvidia’s first-party benchmarks for its RTX 3070 graphics card, which are compared to Nvidia’s RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 Ti. When compared to the RTX 2080 Ti, Nvidia’s new RTX 3070 ships for less than half the price, with an MSRP of $499 in the US and £469 in the UK. That’s an insane level of value. 

You can read Nvidia’s statement regarding the RTX 3070’s delayed launch below. 

   Production of GeForce RTX 3070 graphics cards are ramping quickly. We’ve heard from many of you that there should be more cards available on launch day. To help make that happen, we are updating the availability date to Thursday, October 29th.

We know this may be disappointing to those eager to purchase a GeForce RTX 3070 as soon as possible, however this shift will help our global partners get more graphics cards into the hands of gamers on launch day.

The GeForce RTX 3070 delivers incredible performance and features, including NVIDIA Reflex and Broadcast, for $499. Across a variety of ray-traced and rasterized DirectX and Vulkan titles, the GeForce RTX 3070 delivers similar or faster performance than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (which sold for twice the price) and is on average 60% faster than the original GeForce RTX 2070.

Nvidia’s RTX 3070 promises to deliver incredible value to PC gamers, offering insane levels of value for money when compared to the company’s older RTX 20 series lineup. The question now is how Radeon will respond, as its RX 6000 series is due to be revealed on October 28th, one day before the RTX 3070’s launch.
