MSI Suprim X RTX 4070 Ti Review
If there is one thing that has become clear from our time with a number of different models of the new Ada Lovelace GPU equipped cards, it is how incredibly consistent their performance is. Admittedly we’ve not reviewed a base model card, but instead the higher end of the available ranges, but you couldn’t squeeze a christmas card in the gap between the four different RTX 4070 Tis in our graphs. What that means for the end user is that you can stick to a brand you’re loyal to, or buy whichever is the most affordable, without fear that your experience will be compromised in any way.
Thus, if the performance is basically the same across the board then the finer details are going to be the defining factors. With the MSI RTX 4070 Ti Suprim X you get all of the high end elements that define their Suprim X range of cards, and that could very well be enough.
The first thing that strikes you is how rigid the card is. MSI are kind enough to provide a graphics card stand in the box so that you can prop up one end if you have nightmares about card droop, but the solid nature of the Suprim X cooler is enough that we have no worries on that score. Just look at the image that has graced the top of every page. Thick backplate, thick PCB, brace, high density fin cooler taking up the full length of the card, another brace and then the metal fan surround. There is more chance of the government taking a firm stance on energy bill price-fixing than there is of the Suprim X gradually bending over time.
Speaking of the cooler, it is the absolute star of the show here. MSI could have gone down the ASUS route and trimmed off a lot of the fins to save money, but they have given you a full fat Suprim X experience. If you’re in any doubt about how effective this triple-fan design is you only have to look on the previous page where the Suprim X peaks at under 50Â°C. Plenty of headroom if you want to grab their Afterburner utility and overclock the GPU even higher than the default boost clock speed. Certainly it also shows that you don’t need to flick the dual-BIOS switch across to silent mode, even if you are obsessed with quiet GPUs.
We still have all the same qualms about the RTX 4070 Ti nomenclature and pricing that we’ve always had, but if you can look past that and want some meaty gaming performance in your system in a card that combines fantastic build quality with incredible cooling then the MSI Suprim X RTX 4070 Ti demands a place on your shortlist.
