NVM this deserves new thread
After my first card died I have a new one just did a stress test in 3dMark and got 99% on the framerate stability not bad I think
why no sticky thread for 2070 owners..
wheres the love?
The newer driver seems to boost TimeSpy scores with ~200 GPU points
Hey all. Just wanted to asked a quick question. Would a RTX 2070 be a worthy upgrade for my GTX 1070? I can get the MSI Duke 2070 for $425 and was thinking of grabbing it(A buddy has one brand new). Good idea? Thanks for any input.
For that price, I would say yes. Assuming you read the reviews and are OK with the performance gain over the 1070.
I own a 2070 after oc this gpu
wins a 1080TI
True for dx12
falls behind 1080ti 5-10% in dx11 titles
always 1080ti standard clocks vs 2070 oced gpu+cpu
but very strong against 1070.
Yeah at stock 2070 is slightly faster or even with 1080, but in some areas, especially Vulkan performance, a 2070 may beat a 1080 Ti even.
Turing has a huge perf boost vs. Pascal in Vulkan.
Anybody here running the Evga GeForce RTX 2070 Black Gaming card? How is micron vs. Samsung memory overclock? Which mhz does it boost to without manual overclock? How far were you able to overclock it manually? How much Mhz can you go up on the core and the memory? Thanks in advance.
What about the Evga Geforce RTX 2070 Black Edition? Anybody here got that one?
Dont forget that most of the cards with 1600 ish clocks are not A cards, also the best tdp card by power is the gigabyte gaming with 280W on the bios, that will give you more OC headroom.
My 2070 Strix came with Micron memory. Beautiful card, super sweet product all around. EXCEPT FOR: it failed during the first week LOL
I suspect that OC-ing memory on 2070 is pointless - because it already has as much bandwidth as RTX 2080, yet it has -25% of rest of the hardware.
Well I finally broke down and bit the bullet..... I got that card. I had a friend that was gonna sell me one and I waited too long and his other half made him send it back.... Soooo, I looked around and found one on Amazon. It was a used one and said in very good condition. I was nervous(it was in my cart for 2 days b4 I hit the place order button lolz). So I finally got it yesterday and it was in the original box(minus the sleeve), the seal on the bag was broke but the protective film was still on the top and bottom of the card. Looked very clean. Popped it in and it works!!!! This thing is a beast. It's super quiet and runs super cool! I'll post a couple of my 3dmark Timespy results below.
This was my 1070
This is the 2070 out of the box
This is the 2070 with a pretty good oc
I have yet to see it break 61c after running anything(my 1070 was loud and hot(80c+ when gaming and benching). I paid $450(for the 2070) for it and I even get a game with it(thought I wouldn't cause it's used). I keep raising the gpu clock and it keeps working and staying cool(Gonna stop were I'm at for a lil and see how it goes It's at +150 on the core and +1100 on the mem. Soo, so far so good. I be super happy... It has Samsung memory too.
Port Royal out of the box
Port Royal with the same oc as above in TimeSpy
did a stress test using prime95 and furmark at 4k max settings.....
nothing went above 61c for the time I ran, which was a half hour. not much, just wanted to see if my psu fan still works. it only runs if it gets warm, which it hardly ever gets warm...
I like my PNY RTX 2070 OC. It serves me well in a Dell T3600 workstation and will add another year or so to this setup.
It's coupled to a LG 4K monitor and mostly used for Photography related tasks and a few games.
Quick question ... I see folks talking about TU106-400-A1 and TU106-400A-A1
I see TU106 and Rev A1 in GPU-Z but I'm not sure where you see 400 or 400A?
I have an MSI Ventus - also noticed it has Samsung Memory. Is this good or bad?
Haven't had the need to overclock up till now... what is the easiest way to go about it? Afterburner?
btw... Furmark temps get up a little over 80 (83ish if i remember right) ran it for a good 20minutes. Does this seem ok?
Runs Witcher 3 just fine on Ultra settings.. over 100fps .. .even Hairworks.. but this is at 1980x1200... Monitor upgrade coming!
I think you can only see which chip it is by removing cooler and checking what's marked on the die. Not sure though.
Alternatively check some reviews for the card, likely you'll find one where this is mentioned.
Samsung memory is very good.
AB is the easiest way to overclock. Just use OC Scanner for an easy overclock.
80+ temps are somewhat high I think, even in Furmark. I have MSI Armor and it never exceeds 70 C, gaming temps are between 60 ... 68 usually.
The card will temp throttle past 83 C so maybe replace thermal paste on the die, you can check the chip while at it.
Yeah Witcher 3 runs very well with this card
80+ temps is quite normal with something like furmark with the majority of cards. I would not take apart the card to replace the paste for something like this, which I doubt will make much of a difference and would likely void the warranty. Tbh, nobody should be using furmark any more, its a useless program that does not represent real world gaming scenarios in any way.
TU106-400-A1 - 10DE 1F02
TU106-400A-A1 - 10DE 1F07
Supposedly Samsung memory OC better than Micron and are usually found in later video cards.
Don't use Furmark, play games or benchmarks to test stability. That just increases temps in an unlikely manner.
Easiest way to overclock is to not touch it. GPU Boost will automatically clock it higher than normal.
Easy way to overclock is using OC scanner (ctrl + f in afterburner), scan, apply, and test yourself.
Manual way is to max power/temp limit and increase core clock, bench/test, up clock, bench test etc.. if desire do the same for ram separately then combine. There are a ton of guides/tutorials/videos this day in age.
