    can any 3070ti owners weigh in here ?
    I saw sqare face Tom from mlid ramble how during a review gddr6x made his room too hot when it's sitting in idle.
    I am potentially interested in this card since it's about the only one that is remotely close to msrp and dropping,but idle/multimonitor/video power consumption is very important imo.

    I've been checking reviews and frankly I can't really find anything that would validate his ramblings.

    computerbase show it's pretty much the same as 3070 g6

    A friend's EVGA 3070 ti ftw3 ultra idles around 13-15w at 29c fans stopped (22-23c ambient) on a single 4k/120 monitor.

    Here's TPU's review of MSI's 3070 Ti Suprim X's power consumption in various use-cases:

    Would say that guy has something graphically running in the background he doesn't know of or his card is broken in some fashion.
