GPU-Z shows the primary stats of our testing the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC. The GPU clocks in at 1500 MHz and can boost up to 1755 MHz which is slightly higher than the stock 1730MHz boost. Pixel Fillrates run at 168.5 GPixels/s, and Texture Fillrate comes in at 322.9 GTexel/s, while memory runs at 1750 MHz. We see 8GB of GDDR6 memory on the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC.

Let us move on and start our testing with computing-related benchmarks.

  1. Hey that’s the card the card I was able to find and got it for $525 at microcenter. Last one in stock woot! It completed the missing piece to my build. Wish the card had light though, don’t care for rgb but a nice lit up RTX would be cool.

  2. Thanks William, an excellent comparison that we’ve been waiting for.

    Shouldn’t the article have a Tag for “compute”, and it would be helpful (for search) to have “compute” in the article’s title.

    Also, the “Arion v2.5” benchmark would benefit from adding a few CPUs; for comparison.

    We really appreciate seeing how much to decide to spend, and which card we should consider for compute applications.
