Leaks show Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti is up to 10% faster than RTX 3070

RTX 3070 Ti

The new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is set to release on June 10. As this graphics card is the successor to the RTX 3070, it has been the subject of a lot of speculation as to how much better the Ti model is going to be. Thanks to benchmark leaks on the Chinese video portal Bilibili, we now have a better idea of the future performance of the RTX 3070 Ti. Compared to its predecessor, the new card has shown quite a lot of promise in testing.

Two benchmark results have leaked, each coming from different sources and pertaining to different models of the card. The source of the first leak is the Chinese Doge Guy (TecLab), who tested the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Gaming OC. It seems that the exact model of the GPU was not meant to be revealed, but some Gigabyte labels slipped past and show up in the video. This is a card that comes with a custom PCB design with a 10+2 phase VRM (voltage regulator module). It runs on dual eight-pin power connectors and comes with a single HDMI port and three DisplayPort connectors. In order to showcase the PCB, the cooler was removed in the leaked video.

Gigabyte’s RTX 3070 Ti Gaming OC had been tested in both gaming and synthetic benchmarks. The results were then compared to the basic RTX 3070 and to an RTX 3080. When tested against its predecessor, the RTX 3070 Ti shows an increase in performance measuring at around 10%. This boost in frame rates is to be expected and is comparable to the difference between the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti cards, the latter of which released last week.

Compared to an RTX 3070, the RTX 3070 Ti has faster GDDR6X memory modules. Tests show that the TDP of the card has gone up compared to the previous model, now requiring up to 325W on full power. The cooling system seems to do its job, keeping the GPU at a peak temperature of 60 degrees Celsius.

The second leak comes from a Bilibili leaker known as Big Hardware Player. The card in question was made by the Chinese brand Colorful, a manufacturer known for producing premium, custom GPUs. This time, a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Vulcan-X was tested not only in games and synthetic benchmarks but also in cryptocurrency mining.

Mining Ethereum is exactly what this GPU is not meant to shine at, as Nvidia attempted to prevent the card from being sniped by crypto miners by implementing the Lite Hash Rate limiter. Due to this feature, the mining performance drops down to half speed shortly into testing. The card returns at most 45 MH/s when overclocked and, much like the first model, showed an increase in gaming performance of around 10%.

Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will feature 4% more CUDA cores than its predecessor. On the other hand, compared to the RTX 3080, this card has around 30% fewer cores. This is combined with a base clock speed of 1,580 MHz and 1,770 MHz when overclocked. The default models will feature 8GB of GDDR6X memory, and all the cards are said to maintain a 256-bit memory BUS interface.

This latest release from Nvidia is a welcome sight but will likely sell out quickly. Set to hit the market on June 10, the RTX 3070 Ti is going to come with a $599 starting price — and a whole lot of people looking to buy it.

Nvidia’s biggest fails of all time
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang with a few Nvidia graphics cards.

Nvidia is the biggest and most successful graphics card manufacturer of all time, despite AMD's best efforts. But just because it wears the crown, doesn't mean this king has never faltered. In fact, like its stiffest competition, Nvidia has made some major missteps over the years, leading to embarrassment at best, and billions of dollars wasted, at worst.

If you're here to poke fun at the bear, you're in the right place. Here are Nvidia's biggest fails of all time.

This AMD GPU from 2021 beats the RX 7900 XTX and the RTX 4080
The AMD Radeon Pro W6800X Duo graphics card.

An AMD graphics card that launched in 2021 managed to beat both Nvidia's RTX 4080 and AMD's own flagship, the RX 7900 XTX. Surely that would make it one of the best GPUs you could buy right now -- unfortunately, it's much too pricey to be considered worthwhile, and you can't even use it in a regular PC.

The crazy GPU in question is the AMD Radeon Pro W6800X Duo. Thanks to tests performed by a hardware expert, we were able to see it run far outside of its usual environment. Here's how it fared.
