EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card Review

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 Ti XC3 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.

Far Cry 6

In Far Cry 6, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING turned in 62 FPS, yielding to the Radeon RX 6800’s 65 FPS of superiority. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING brought it up to par with the Radeon RX 6800 at 65 FPS.

Cyberpunk 2077

In Cyberpunk 2077, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING turned in 21.9 FPS across the manual run-through. This does not represent a good playing experience at all which is consistent with the AMD Radeon RX 6800’s 22.7 FPS. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING bumped up the FPS to 23.3 which was not enough to make a difference other than jumping above the RX 6800 in the charts.

Horizon Zero Dawn

In Horizon Zero Dawn, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING achieved 68 FPS which is a hair over the AMD Radeon RX 6800 at 66 FPS. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING added a shaved hair to its performance with 73 FPS.

Red Dead Redemption 2

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING 4K Red Dead Redemption 2 performance

In Red Dead Redemption 2, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING chalked up 47.8 FPS which was just behind the AMD Radeon RX 6800 at 47.9 FPS. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING bumped it up to 51.6 FPS to lead the pack. Based on the performance observed, we would not suggest maxing out image quality on any of these cards at 4K to play Red Dead.

Dirt 5

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING 4K Dirt 5 Performance

In Dirt 5, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING accumulated 70.6 FPS, which was 4.5% slower than the Radeon RX 6800’s 73.8 FPS. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING boosted it to 72.9 FPS which was not enough to take the lead.

Metro Exodus

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING 4K Metro Exodus performance

In Metro Exodus, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING delivered 44.1 FPS which was above the 43.1 FPS that the AMD Radeon RX 6800 turned in. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING added an additional 6.8% of performance to reach 47 FPS. 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 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING 4K Shadow oft he Tomb raider performance

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING flipped through 67 frames per second fell behind the Radeon RX 6800’s 72 frames flipped per second. Overclocking the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti XC3 ULTRA GAMING increased its performance to 68 FPS but was still unable to out-flip the competition.
