Final Thoughts

Price is something I don't want to talk about for a couple of weeks, until these cards are in gamers' hands and not at the "starts from $499" price that NVIDIA has slapped onto the GeForce RTX 2070. I'm only looking at the full picture of performance for now, and at 2560x1440 more specifically.


Personally, I think the performance on show from NVIDIA with the GeForce RTX 2070 is pretty damn good considering it can battle the GTX 1080 which sits on Amazon for $500+ right now. The GeForce RTX 2070 starts from $499 but I don't want to put any final thoughts into a card and its price point until it stabilizes. If we're comparing it in the $499-$599 range, then it is offering better-than-GTX 1080 performance for either a little cheaper, or the same price.

You'd be silly to buy the GeForce GTX 1080 brand new these days as you can get the newer GTX 1070 Ti or a second hand GTX 1080 Ti for a little more. If you're buying new, then the RTX 2070 is great new contender for the $500 to $600 price bracket.

NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2070 leaves AMD's flagship Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card behind in performance, and is close to the same price with the RX Vega 64 sitting between $500-$650. Vega 64 is way hotter, way louder, a year old, and I wouldn't recommend buying it over the GTX 1070 Ti let alone the new RTX 2070. This is just in performance, a clear 'buy it now' from me but when it comes to power/noise/etc I recommend the RTX 2070 over any Radeon card any day of the week.

For now, the RTX 2070 offers some stellar performance at 2560x1440 but we're going to see how it runs at 3440x1440 and 7680x4320 next. There's a lot of fun stuff coming up involving the RTX 2070, but for now what do you think? Better than you thought? Worse than you thought?

The Bottom Line: NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2070 offers performance somewhere between the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti, all in a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. There's plenty of fun to be had for a card starting at $499, blowing everything AMD has away with the third-fastest Turing card from NVIDIA.
