Entry-level mainstream with top-shelf cooling and perforrmance


COLORFUL iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advance OC Graphics Card Review

Let’s break it down for the COLORFUL iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advance OC-V. First, let’s start off with performance:

Compared to a reference RTX 2070 SUPER, as we’ve seen in the beginning of this review, great cooling really helps in unleashing the performance of this card and while NVIDIA’s really doesn’t allow massive overclocks with any RTX 2070 SUPER, a good cooler will definitely help in keeping your card performing on a high level. Evidently in much of our tests, the COLORFUL iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advance OC proves to be the superior card even beating out a custom-cooled RTX 2080. Now that’s something I’ve noticed since the SUPER launched but we’ll discuss that in a different topic but do know, the results have been validated. Going back, the Founders Edition RTX 2070 SUPER, its really held back by its cooler and the COLORFUL’s card really shows what a properly cooled RTX 2070 SUPER can do. At 1440p where this card is expected to shine, it does deliver the performance expected from it brings excellent numbers to the fray and even gaming in 4K is highly doable with this card.

Now on the matter of raytracing,  while we didn’t test those they are an option and NVIDIA updated DLSS so games that utilize both technologies will definitely enjoy great performance than launch. Still, raytracing has grown since the RTX 2000 cards debuted and regardless of whatever card you used, if you appreciate eye candy, the option is always there. For a card like the COLORFUL iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advance OC, much like its general performance, thanks to better cooling, you’ll enjoy better framerates with raytracing on with this card and  even moreso should DLSS 2.0 is available in your game.

Moving over to looks, the iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advance OC-V’s signature Silver Shark cooler is definitely a well-built and clean-looking cooler with the industrial touches adding a layed, robust feel to the overall build and holding it in your hand, this card a real beefy boy. The backplate isn’t so inspired and while this may be COLORFUL’s entry model iGame card, the backplate could’ve used some more design ideas instead of just a flat plate.

As a company who has historically used the Kamen Rider Agito, its suspect someone in the company is a fan of Kamen Rider and while they do promote the Energy Core center fan design as Iron Man-inspired from his Arc Reactor, the lighting effects are heavily reminiscent of the Vital Charger’s Kingstone during his henshin sequence. Just a little bit of trivia for fellow Kamen Rider Black fans out there.

Going back, the COLORFUL iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advance OC is a highly likable card: very good cooling, excellent performance and a simple yet striking design that should blend well with most modern builds. This card is best enjoyed at 1440p, delivering a nice balance of frame rates and eye candy but 240hz seekers can use for 1080p and enjoy it in 4K as well for lighter games like esports shooters e.g. Modern Warfare, Fortnite or Valorant.

The only drawback of this card is that its hard to find, availability isn’t so great outside of China and some markets like South Korea but for their emerging markets like the Philippines or the USA, this card will be seen mostly online and usually out of stock. Prices will range around $600 or past Php30,000, but expect it to be a bit higher due to logistics issues during the pandemic period. Given that though, if you’re trying to stick to a certain budget and you manage to snag one of these, its definitely going to be one of those long term purchases.

In closing, COLORFUL is certainly not holding out when it comes to their entry iGame model and the iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advance OC-V is definitely a nice direction to go for users that want a sturdy GPU and have grown tired of the ROG Strix or Fajita Dragon design. If you’re lucky enough to spot one in the wild at MSRP and you’re in the market for an RTX 2070 SUPER, the iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advance OC is definitely an easy recommendation thanks to its beefy cooling  and performance backed by quality.

COLORFUL backs the iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Advance OC with a 3-year warranty. We give it our B2G Recommended Seal and B2G Silver Award!
