Few hours before the official announcement of Radeon RX 6000 Series, NVIDIA releases a new Ampere-based graphics card. After the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, the GeForce RTX 3070 is the third graphics card from the RTX 30 Series.
The GeForce RTX 3070 is based on a GA104 GPU (but not the full GA104 which has 48 SMs), is 50% faster than previous gen RTX 2070 and offers the RTX 2080 Ti levels of performance! The RTX 3070 targets the 1440p resolution (4K is more the realm of RTX 3080/3090).
