One. What the previous version hasn’t done is finished by the non-public
RTX 3070 is the first ever video card which is capable of running 4K games smoothly. It at the price of 599 dollars but obtained with the previous generation 1510 dollars RTX 2080 Ti’s the same performance. It is NVIDIA rare cost-effective card in recent years.
However, it is a little regrettable that the RTX 3070, although the performance of the public RTX 2080 Ti at 1080P and 2K resolution is the same, but the performance of the RTX 2080 Ti at 4K resolution is slightly worse by 2%.
Will the non-public version of RTX 3070 be able to reverse the attack and reverse the RTX 2080 Ti in 4K resolution today?
IGame GeForce RTX 3070 Advanced OC was used for this test. This video card has two BIOS, and the default BIOS parameters are exactly the same as the public version. The basic frequency is 1500MHz, the acceleration frequency is 1725MHz, and the TDP is 220W.
You can switch to another overclocked BIOS by pressing the “one-key overclocked” button at the I/O baffle.
GPU-Z screenshot after “one-key overclocking” shows that the acceleration frequency has been increased from 1725MHz to 1815MHz, and the TDP has been increased from 220W to 270W, which is a full 50W. In addition, the overclocking software can be used to continue to pull up to 290W.
At the same time of increasing frequency and power consumption, iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC designed 13 power supply circuit, 2 more than the public version.
In terms of heat dissipation,2*3.54inches 3.14inches three fans and 5 composite heat pipes with diameter of 0.31inch adopt reflow welding technology and heat dissipation fins as a whole.
We know that the thermal conductivity of one 0.31inch heat pipe is roughly equivalent to that of two 0.23inch heat pipes, and the five 0.31inch heat pipes adopted by iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC are very rare among video cards of the level of RTX 3070.
On the other hand, PCB adopts excessive silver plating design, and silver plating is adopted in the contact layer between each component and PCB circuit layer, which can enhance GPU stability under high load, reduce power loss and extend service life.
Two. The exterior mirror is sprayed with processing shell, visual stay fan blade design
In the packaging box, you can see that the fan in the middle of the video card is equipped with RGB function.
It’s a continuation of the iGame Advanced design, but this time with a mirror finish, which hides the shape and brings the graphics card into the frame, while also highlighting the RGB fan in the middle.
2×3.54inches 1×3.14inches 3 fan configurations, graphics card length 12.4inches, thickness 2.08inches, standard 2 slot thickness.
The fan in the middle is made of translucent material, and the periphery is designed with a red RGB ring. It supports 1600W color display and can switch more than five RGB modes.
The central area of the fan is perforated with an embedded matrix, which can produce the effect of light condensation. When the fan is running at high speed, the visual impression is that the fan blades seem to remain stationary.
Of course, achieving this effect is not easy. It requires a very precise number that matches the flashing frequency of the light with the speed of the fan.
The integral all-metal back plate can strengthen the overall strength and avoid bending damage of the graphics card due to gravity.

iGame belief lamp, electrified can also emit light.
At the end of the video card, five 0.31inch heat pipes are spectacular.
Five composite heat pipes with a diameter of 0.31inch adopt reflow welding technology and heat dissipation fins as a whole, with high thermal conductivity. At the bottom is iGame vacuum borneol technology, which quickly distributes the GPU’s heat evenly into each heat pipe.
In addition, thermal conductive paste is designed for the main heat dissipation parts of PCB, such as video memory and MosFET.
iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC designed 13 power supply circuit to meet the power consumption requirement of overclocked BIOS 270W.
The PCB also USES excessive silver plating technology, which can increase the stability of the graphics card and extend its service life.

Three. The theoretical performance test exceeds the public version by 4%
The test platform is as follows
- 3DMark Time Spy
In the 2K resolution 3DMark Time Spy test, the graphics score of iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC reached 14,205 points, the highest core temperature was 68℃, the highest core operating frequency was 1995MHz, the highest fan speed was 2079RPM, and the highest power consumption was 273W.
In the 4K resolution 3DMark Time Spy Extreme test, iGame RTX 3070 graphics score reached 7022 points, the highest core temperature was 71℃, the highest core operating frequency was 2010MHz, the highest fan speed was 2068RPM, and the highest power consumption was 279W.
IGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC scored 4 percent higher than the public version at both 2K and 4K resolution. Compared with RTX 2080 Ti, iGame RTX 3070 has a 1% advantage at 2K resolution and a 6% advantage at 4K resolution.

Summarize all the data as follows
At 1080P resolution, iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC was 3% faster than the public version, 2% faster than RTX 2080 Ti, and 13% faster than RTX 3080.
At 2K resolution, iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC is 3% faster than the public version, and it also has a 3% advantage over RTX 2080 Ti.
In 4K resolution, RTX 3070 public version is not as good as RTX 2080 Ti, iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC has achieved reverse overshooting, which is 2% faster than RTX 2080 Ti.
Five. Power and temperature test power and temperature test
- Temperature test
The RTX 3070 toaster was tested using Furmark at room temperature of 26 degrees.
Tests performed using an overclocked BIOS. Set Furmark’s parameters to 1920*1080 resolution, 0AA, and accidentally run the oven test for two and a half hours.
In the process of the toaster, the power consumption of iGame RTX 3070 is maintained above 260W, the toaster frequency is 1755MHz, the temperature is 66 degrees, and the fan speed is 2134RPM.
- Power consumption test
We will test the power consumption of standby and Furmark toaster respectively, and we will also add the power consumption test for the game project of Wizard The power source used for the test is Weigang XPG CORE REACTOR 850 GOLD power source.
iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC over frequency BIOS TDP as high as 270W, than the public version of 220W is 50W higher, the power consumption of the whole machine should also increase.
The power difference of all graphics CARDS in standby state is not big. When running Wizard 3, the power consumption of iGame RTX 3070 reaches 427 watts, which is 70W higher than RTX 3070 and 25W higher than RTX 2080 Ti.
When running the FurMakr toaster program, the power consumption of iGame RTX 3070 platform is 64W higher than that of the public VERSION RTX 3070, and 13W higher than that of RTX 2080 Ti.
Six. Summary of the video card with smooth 4K
Finally, iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC surpassed the RTX 2080 Ti as desired, and at 4K resolution,iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC surpassed the RTX 2080 Ti by 2%.
In terms of temperature, iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC has an excellent performance. After two and a half hours of FurMark toaster testing, the temperature of five pure copper nickel plated heat pipe VC heat equalizer with a diameter of 0.31inch was only 66 degrees when the GPU power consumption exceeded 260W for a long time. This also indicates that the cooling system can easily cope with the high workload after “one-button overclocking”.
Of course, if you’re not looking for extreme performance, using a silent BIOS can provide a nice temperature and quiet experience.
IGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC is equipped with Silver Shark Silver Shark radiator 2.0. When the GPU consumes only 220W power, the fan speed can be controlled within 1700RPM, while the core temperature is less than 63 degrees.
RTX 3070 is the first video card that can run 4K games smoothly at the 459 dollars price. In the 15 games we tested with 4K resolution V lead, iGame RTX 3070 Advanced OC only failed to exceed 50FPS in two games, Microsoft Simulated Flight 2020 and No Man’s Land 3. Other games can basically have running frame rates of more than 60FPS at the highest picture quality.
I believe 4K games will replace 2K as the mainstream in the near future.
