The Palit GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GameRock OC is the company’s most premium custom-design implementation of NVIDIA’s latest high-end graphics card launch. The RTX 3070 Ti and last week’s RTX 3080 Ti launch form part of an attempt to refresh the high-end segment in the face of competition from AMD and its “Big Navi” Radeon RX 6800 series. This graphics cards segment targets those wanting maxed out gaming at 1440p with raytracing, but also the ability to play at 4K UHD with reasonably good details. NVIDIA already has such a SKU in the RTX 3070, which was embattled by the RX 6700 XT and RX 6800 and is possibly what the RTX 3070 Ti launch is all about.
NVIDIA created the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti out of the same GA104 silicon as the RTX 3070 by maxing it out. You hence get all 6,144 CUDA cores physically present on the chip, compared to just 5,888 on the RTX 3070. Another major change is memory, with NVIDIA opting for fast 19 Gbps GDDR6X memory over 14 Gbps GDDR6. This results in a significant 35% increase in memory bandwidth over the RTX 3070. The memory size remains 8 GB, though. Wrapping things up are the slightly higher GPU clock speeds. The resulting product, NVIDIA believes, should restore competition to the sub-$600 market segment by successfully challenging the RX 6800.
Palit bolstered the RTX 3070 Ti with its highest factory overclock, at 1845 MHz boost frequency compared to the 1770 MHz reference. The GameRock OC series from Palit always represented over-the-top designs, and this card is no exception. A neatly executed “icebox” pattern tops the cooler shroud, which isn’t unlike the G.SKILL Trident Royal memory modules. This element is illuminated with addressable RGBs.
At this time, Palit is unable to provide an MSRP for the GameRock OC. I’d estimate it’ll end up around $1350 in the free market, which is $50 higher than the RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition.
