4K Gaming Performance

Next up, we’ll place all the chips in the middle of the table and see how the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING performs at the 4K resolution. All of the games are running at the highest quality selections available sans Ray Tracing and DLSS which we will look at separately. For each game, we are using the game benchmark included with the game and reporting the average frames per second.

Cyberpunk 2077

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Cyberpunk 2077 4k performance

In Cyberpunk 2077, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING turned in 30.3 FPS across the manual run through. This does not represent a good playing experience at all which is consistent with the 25.1 FPS performance of the MSI Radeon RX 6700 XT GAMING X. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING bumped up the FPS to 32.4 which was not enough to make a difference other than perhaps an academic victory.

Horizon Zero Dawn

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Horizon Zero Dawn 4k performance

In Horizon Zero Dawn, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING achieved 65 FPS which kicks in the VTEC over the MSI Radeon RX 6700 XT GAMING X by 14.7 FPS or 29.2%. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING added 7.7% to its lead for a total of 70 FPS.

Red Dead Redemption 2

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Red Dead Redemption 2 4k performance

In Red Dead Redemption 2, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING chalked up 42.8 FPS which was slightly ahead of the MSI Radeon RX 6700 XT GAMING X at 37.7 FPS. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING bumped it up to 47.3 FPS for a 10.5% gain. Based on the performance observed, it’s all for naught – Red Dead Redemption 2 isn’t a great idea to play maxed out at 4k on either card.

Metro Exodus

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Metro Exodus 4k Performance

In Metro Exodus, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING delivered 45.9 FPS which was above the 34.8 FPS effort turned in by the MSI Radeon RX 6700 XT GAMING X. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING increased its lead at the top of the pile at 45.9 FPS or 7.7%. Regardless, this is not a game you’ll want to play at 4K with either of these cards.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Shadow of the Tomb Raider 4k Performance

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING flipped through 60.3 frames per second which was slightly ahead of the 57 FPS that the MSI Radeon RX 6700 XT GAMING X flopped through. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING flipped both off with its its performance at 66FPS, a 9.5% improvement.

  1. I’ve been on the queue for this card since december, at least I know what to expect. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

  2. Well EVGA is probably my favorite AIB, not because they don’t make some mistakes, always have the best card but they have by far from my experience the best service out there. Their forums are actually useful and full of tricks, OCing and so on. Plus EVGA does not mind you installing coolers, water blocks etc. on your card. They will sometime offer OCing bios with much higher power limits at times particularly on the FTW3 and above cards. This card has a much better feature set over the AMD 6700XT except the 6700XT has more VRAM. Probably comes down to what one can nab in the end, hard choice.

  3. Nice review.

    I don’t think this is the one for me, not that anyone can buy them for msrp anyway.
