ASUS TUF GAMING RTX 3070 OC Graphics Card Review

The RTX 3080 release is quite memorable for a lot of negative things but if there’s anything good that comes out of that, its that ASUS’ new TUF GAMING graphics card series is something that’s not to treated as a less proxy for their ROG Strix products. The TUF GAMING graphics now hold good creds amongst consumers and the new ASUS TUF GAMING RTX 3070 graphics card continues that success while also giving ASUS graphics card team the satisfaction of knowing they didn’t screw up this cooler.

Read on to find out more about the ASUS TUF GAMING RTX 3070 OC in this #B2G review.

We’ll switch things up and open with the power and temperature behavior of the graphics card first. We use Final Fantasy XV Benchmark to simulate a gaming workload but for those looking extreme loads, we do put our cards through Kombustor on first installation for stress testing to check for stability. For our reviews though, we use Final Fantasy XV to simulate a true gaming scenario. Power draw is captured inline via PCAT or Powenetics so no other components affects readings. Readings are taken from the average 15 min idle readings for both load and idle.

Let’s take a look at clock behavior versus temperature:

In the chart above we can follow the clock speed pattern as the card heats up during load. From the left we have the GPU clock as highlighted by the darker line and the lighter pink line is the temperature detailed on the left. Clocks climb to around 1940Mhz, that’s actually close to the boost clocks of the RTX 3080 if not pretty identical. Temperatures are also a similar story: simply the best temps we’ve seen on gaming loads.
