MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC Edition Review


MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC Rendering Related Benchmarks

Next, we wanted to get a sense of the rendering performance of the GeForce RTX 3070.

Arion v2.5

Arion Benchmark is a standalone render benchmark based on the commercially available Arion render software from RandomControl. The benchmark is GPU-accelerated using NVIDIA CUDA. However, it is unique in that it can run on both NVIDIA GPUs and CPUs.

Download the Arion Benchmark from here. First-time users will have to register to download the benchmark.

Like our first set of benchmarks, the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC shows impressive single GPU results and, again, falls into the RTX 2080 Ti cluster of scores, indeed just above them.

MAXON Cinema4D 3D

ProRender is an OpenCL based GPU renderer that is available in MAXON’s Cinema4D 3D animation software. A fully functional 42-day trial version is available for downloaded from the MAXON website here. Note: Even after expiration, the trial can still be used to measure render times.

Here the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC again slightly outpaces the RTX 2080 Ti’s and even the Titan RTX.

Redshift v3.0.31

Redshift is a GPU-accelerated renderer with production-quality. A Demo version of this benchmark can be found here.

With Redshift, the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC crushes our Redshift demo benchmark at 4 minutes and 25 seconds.

Next, we will have 3DMark results before moving onto power consumption, thermals, and our final thoughts.


  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.
