In-Game Benchmarks

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 10 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 54 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 TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti OC do? Well like with the 4080 and 4090, the TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti OC dominated all of our 1080p tests. But unlike those other cards, the TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti OC is the first of the newest generation of Nvidia cards to not also have every 1440p result at 120 FPS or higher. This time around there were two results in the 60-119 range which is still extremely impressive but not completely dominant. Then at 4K which is a resolution Nvidia isn’t targeting with the 4070 Ti, the TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti OC still did well with only one result under 60 FPS. With 11 results in the 60-119 range, a majority are still in the green and there were 4 results still up over 120 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. As I mentioned before, with the RTX 4070 Ti I am curious to see how it compares with the RTX 4080, AMD’s 7900 XT, and Nvidia’s last generation of cards. In our synthetic tests with DX12 tests the TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti OC traded blows with the RTX 3090 Ti which was a nice surprise but wasn’t in the range of the 7900 XT which was up with the 4080. I averaged out our results across the four cards at all three resolutions below and you can see the same result while in game. The 1080p results are a wash because of being CPU limited in some games, but it is interesting to see how well the 4070 Ti did there. At 1440p which was Nvidia’s focus the TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti OC outperformed the 3090 Ti by 5 FPS but isn’t up to the 7900 XT’s or 4080’s performance. Then at 4K the limitations with the memory bus on the 4070 Ti show up and the performance drops below the 3090 Ti.
