Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition Review

By now you should be familiar with the packaging for the Founders Edition cards. The latest addition to the range sticks rigidly to the formula, which is by no means a bad thing given how classy the packaging and card looks.
If you're anything like us you enjoy the idea of a product opening that's an event. Hell judging from the number of hits that an unboxing video gets on Youtube we're not alone. You want visual impact and the feeling that your money has been spent wisely. The Founders Edition cards always look perfect with their angled internals and "here it is" card presentation.
The cooler will be instantly familiar to anyone with even a passing interest in the world of graphics cards. Since the redesign a while ago fixed all the problems we ever had with reference designs, Nvidia have zero reason to change what is a very attractive, curvaceous, cool .. ahem.. cooler.
Never underestimate the importance of the pass through fan which helps keep the card cool, but also helps push air to the top half of your chassis where it can help keep your CPU cool. It's a piece of design genius.
One thing that hasn't changed is Nvidia putting the power connector in the middle so that the fans can be as large as possible. We don't mind it as much as we used to, although we still would rather they use standard PCI power connector designs.
