On Tuesday I took a look at the new RTX 3070 Founders Edition as a look at Nvidia’s new Ampere-based GPU ahead of today's launch. Well in addition to the launch, today is also when the embargo drops for aftermarket RTX 3070’s and I’m lucky enough to have the RTX 3070 XC3 Black from EVGA on hand to check out. The RTX 3070 Founders Edition performed well, but today I’m excited to see what an overclock and a different cooler can do. Especially with EVGA going with a more traditional full-length PCB and cooler here over the short PCB that the Founders Edition had to support their unique blow-through design.

So specification wise the EVGA RTX 3070 XC3 Black is the same as the Founders Edition. To confirm that I did what I always do and ran GPUz. There I could confirm the memory and GPU clocks match the specifications. I also do this so I can document the BIOS version used and the driver I tested with which btw is the pre-launch version 456.96 provided by Nvidia.

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
The graphics card contains two graphics processing units (GPUs). This generally results in better performance than a similar, single-GPU graphics card.
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
The graphics card uses a combination of water and air to reduce the temperature of the card. This allows it to be overclocked more, increasing performance.
The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.
The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
TMUs take textures and map them to the geometry of a 3D scene. More TMUs will typically mean that texture information is processed faster.
When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
The ROPs are responsible for some of the final steps of the rendering process, writing the final pixel data to memory and carrying out other tasks such as anti-aliasing to improve the look of graphics.
The effective memory clock speed is calculated from the size and data rate of the memory. Higher clock speeds can give increased performance in games and other apps.
Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
A wider bus width means that it can carry more data per cycle. It is an important factor of memory performance, and therefore the general performance of the graphics card.
Newer versions of GDDR memory offer improvements such as higher transfer rates that give increased performance.
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
Newer versions of HDMI support higher bandwidth, which allows for higher resolutions and frame rates.
More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
The graphics card supports multi-display technology. This allows you to configure multiple monitors in order to create a more immersive gaming experience, such as having a wider field of view.
A lower load temperature means that the card produces less heat and its cooling system performs better.
Ray tracing is an advanced light rendering technique that provides more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in games.
This benchmark measures the graphics performance of a video card. Source: PassMark.
OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.

On our test bench, today is the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING (08G-P5-3755-KR) video card. Among the four RTX 3070 cards that EVGA offers, the XC3 ULTRA GAMING sports the second-fastest factory overclock that EVGA currently offers. It is equipped with EVGA’s iCX3 cooling solution which includes three fans.
Like all other GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs, this card is impossible to find in the retail environment but has an MSRP of $629.99 direct from EVGA at the time of publication. To get the card from EVGA, jump into their notification queue and await your turn (it’ll probably be a while). We’ve seen the card pop up from time to time at NewEgg and BestBuy, but is still as hard to get as any other RTX 30 Series card. This represents a premium over the GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition card, so we will compare it to the AMD Radeon RX 6800 which weighs in at an MSRP of $579 as well as an ASUS ROG STRIX 2080 Ti to see how well it rivals the previous generation’s king.
The GeForce RTX 3070 GPU is based on the Samsung 8nm manufacturing process and Ampere architecture. It has 46 SMs, 5,888 CUDA Cores, 184 Tensor Cores (3rd gen), 46 RT Cores (2nd gen), 184 Texture Units, and 96 ROPs. It has a GPU Boost Clock of 1725MHz. It has 8GB of GDDR6 memory at 14GHz on a 256-bit bus providing 448GB/s of memory bandwidth.
EVGA RTX 3070 Models
EVGA has four RTX 3070 models listed on its website. The card we are reviewing today, the RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING sits just below the RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING in the lineup with the RTX 3070 XC3 GAMING cards (with and without a backplate) landing below it.
The EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING comes in a regulation-size video card box that identifies it as an RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA model from EVGA. Once we cracked open the box, we found a black-clad GPU sporting three fans and a solid metal backplate.
Compared to its bigger sibling, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW ULTRA GAMING, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING is about an inch shorter in all three dimensions.
EVGA has given the GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING a factory overclock of 45MHz on the boost clock, bringing it from the stock 1725MHz up to 1770MHz. Keep in mind that the boost clock is a target based upon power, workload, and temperature and that value will typically be exceeded via the card’s boosting algorithm NVIDIA GPU Boost. It also sports 8GB of 14GHz GDDR 6 memory that is equal in speed to the reference specifications. EVGA offers a 220W TGP on the card.
From a size perspective, it’s a fairly standard size card. While it is long, it’s not tall so your case doesn’t have to grow two ways to make room for it. Specifically, it is 11.25 inches long, 4.38 inches tall, and 1.8 inches wide. This is about an inch shorter on each measurement compared to the MSI GeForce RTX 3070 GAMING X TRIO that we recently looked at. For additional comparison, the GeForce RTX 3070 Founders edition’s length is 9 inches long, so the EVGA video card is 2.25 inches longer.
EVGA iCX3 Cooling
EVGA is utilizing its iCX3 cooling setup that consists of 3 HDB 2.0 noise motor fans with fan blades that have raised “E”s on them to reduce noise. The fans feature an asynchronous fan mode and will switch off when temperatures are under 55 degrees Celsius. The PCB features cutouts (along with the backplate having cutouts) to improve airflow and reduce exhaust recovery. EVGA claims a 5.1% improvement over the iCX2 cooling system while being 9.7% quieter.
Pictures and Information
The front of the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING sports the iCX3 cooling design which features five heat pipes and three fans. Turning the card around shows off the metal backplate and cutouts where the rear fan can blow straight through the card.
The EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING sports three Display Port 1.4a connections and one HDMI 2.0 connection and requires two standard8-pin PCI-Express power connectors. EVGA recommends a 650W Power Supply.
Masha raised her chest with noisy breathing - it looks like she hadn't experienced an orgasm for a long time. Naturally, in this. Orgy, they could not help reacting to the girl lying on the floor - especially if her legs were spread so that the crack oozing with mixed juices was visible to everyone. Two pretty young guys came up to us.
