In this post, we’ve listed a number of the best RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards currently available to help you choose the right card for your needs and budget.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is an excellent upgraded version of the ground-breaking mid-tier RTX 3070—bringing an extra boost in performance and memory capacity. Released in June 2021, the RTX 3070 Ti boasts more CUDA cores than its non-Ti counterpart, along with 1.5x improvements in performance over last-gen’s RTX 2070 SUPER.
Billed as a cost-effective alternative to the RTX 3080, the value advantage of this brilliant card is somewhat distorted by the global graphics card shortage– with prices significantly higher than the 3070 Ti’s $599 MSRP. However, prices have dropped in recent weeks and the RTX 3070 Ti is an excellent graphics card option for any gaming PC.
If you’re looking to get yourself a new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, we’ve provided a list of four of the best RTX 3070 Ti cards currently available.

1. ASUS ROG Strix RTX 3070 Ti OC
Best RTX 3070 Ti video card overall
As usual, ASUS’ ROG Strix graphics cards deliver superb performance and value—and their RTX 3070 Ti OC is no exception. The ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3070 Ti OC is our top pick and it is the second most powerful RTX 3070 Ti on the market.
This card only comes in second (in terms of pure performance) to the universally unavailable ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3070 Ti AMP Extreme Holo. Even with that, the performance gap between this card and the AMP Extreme Holo is negligible.
The ROG STRIX OC in 6144 CUDA cores and 8GB of 256-bit GDDR6X VRAM. Living up to the OC name, this card has been overclocked to reach an impressive 1875 MHz boost clock.
Cooling this GPU is ASUS’s excellent triple axial-tech fan design delivering quiet air-cooling and maximum performance. Due to the card’s 2.9 slot design, the GPU has even more surface area to conduct heat. ASUS’s metal backplate adds extra protection and increases cooling surface area.
If you’d like to overclock this card even further, ASUS’s GPU Tweak II utility is perfect for performance tweaking, thermal controls and more.
So how does it perform? In the FP32 single-precision benchmark, the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 3070 Ti OC delivers a theoretical performance of 23.04 TFLOPS. According to GPU Monkey’s testing, this card performs an average of 86 FPS Battlefield 5’s 4K benchmark and 71 FPS in Shadow of the Tomb Raider 4K benchmark.
Despite the RTX 3070 Ti’s positioning as a 1440P card, the ASUS ROG STRIX OC is a perfectly capable 4K card for most games.
As a whole, the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 3080 OC is an impressive card, giving gamers excellent performance without breaking the bank.
2. MSI RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X 8G
Runner-up pick for the top RTX 3070 Ti
Coming in just behind the ASUS ROG STRIX OC is our runner-up, the MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. If you’re not able to get your hands on a ROG STRIX OC for a reasonable price, then the MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X will also offer an excellent gaming experience.
To cool this card, MSI has opted for a triple fan cooler: the Tri Frozer 2S. For great cooling performance and quiet operation, this board comes with three TORX Fans 4.0. They completely shut off when idle or during non-GPU-intensive activities, providing near-complete silence.
The MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X also features addressable RGB accents on the side of the air cooler—allowing you to program in custom lighting routines through MSI’s Mystic Light utility.
How does the SUPRIM X perform? In the FP32 single-precision benchmark, this card churns out a theoretical performance of 23.04 TFLOPS.
According to GPU Monkey, this card performs at an average of 86 FPS in Battlefield 5’s 4K benchmark. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the SUPRIM X delivers an average of 71 FPS in its 4K benchmark.
If you’re able to get your hands on MSI’s premier RTX 3070 Ti card—the MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X—you’re treating yourself to an excellent ray-tracing capable 1440P monster.
3. GIGABYTE RTX 3070 Ti Eagle OC
One of the cheaper RTX 3070 Tis
If you’re looking to save a few bucks, but are still looking for a great RTX 3070 Ti aftermarket card—the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Eagle OC 8G is a great option.
The GIGABYTE Eagle line wasn’t designed to be a budget series—but its lower clock speed means it’s selling for a bit lower than beefier cards in the RTX 3070 Ti roster.
This card reaches a clock speed of 1800 MHz and packs in the standard 6144 CUDA cores and 8GB of 256-bit GDDR6X VRAM.
GIGABYTE has opted for a triple-fan WINDFORCE 3X cooling system. This includes 80mm unique blade fans configured in an alternate spinning pattern. They are supported by 6 composite copper heat pipes to quickly dissipate heat.
How does GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Eagle perform? In the FP32 single-precision benchmark, this card delivers a theoretical performance of 22.12 TFLOPS.
In their testing, GPU Monkey found this card runs at an average of 84 FPS in Battlefield 5’s 4K benchmark. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the Eagle OC delivers an average of 69 FPS in the 4K benchmark.
If you’re looking to save a few bucks but still need the memory and power of the RTX 3070 Ti chip, the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Eagle OC 8G is a brilliant choice. If you want to save some more money, consider downgrading to an RTX 3070—which is still a prolific gaming performer in its own right.
