Now we finally get into the in game performance and that is the main reason people pick up a new video card. To test things out I ran through our new benchmark suite that tests 9 games at three different resolutions (1080p, 1440p, and 4k). Most of the games tested have been run at the highest detail setting and a mid-range detail setting to get a look at how turning things up hurts performance and to give an idea of if turning detail down from max will be beneficial for frame rates. In total, each video card is tested 48 times and that makes for a huge mess of results when you put them all together. To help with that I like to start with these overall playability graphs that take all of the results and give an easier to read result. I have one for each of the three resolutions and each is broken up into four FPS ranges. Under 30 FPS is considered unplayable, over 30 is playable but not ideal, over 60 is the sweet spot, and then over 120 FPS is for high refresh rate monitors.
So how did the RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X do? Well at 1080p all of the tests came in at over 60 FPS and with 11 out of the 16 being up over 120 FPS. This matched the 3070 Ti Founders Edition which isn’t a big shock given that at 1080p things are more CPU limited. At 1440p everything was once again over 60 FPS with 9 out of the 16 this time being over 120 FPS. This means the RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X can handle a majority of 1440p games at a high refresh rate. Then at 4k performance dropped down noticeably with 11 out of the 16 over 60 FPS and none were over 120 FPS. There were 5 of the results in that playable but not ideal range of 30-59 FPS as well.
Of course, I have all of the actual in game results as well for anyone who wants to sort through the wall of graphs below. I mostly wanted to see how the RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X would compare with the stock clocked RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition and to see if the crazy cooling and overclock would be enough to push the 3070 Ti up past any other cards. Right away in Watch Dogs, you can see that the overclock does help, especially in the high detail. In almost all of the tests, the RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X is up 2-4 FPS over the Founders Edition. But that wasn’t enough to push the RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X up over any other cards tested. It stuck right above the 3070 Ti Founders Edition across the board.
