NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3070 is their third consumer graphics card based on the Ampere architecture, which in turn is the second generation of NVIDIA GPUs to offer hardware raytracing and other advanced features under their RTX branding. The performance increase this video card brings varies depending on workflow, with the biggest improvements coming in areas like 3D rendering, video editing, and game engines. In general, though, it should match or beat the performance of the older RTX 2080 Ti card in most applications.

This variant from EVGA uses a triple-fan cooling layout. It is a great design for keeping a single card running cool and quiet, but results in most of the heat it generates being pumped back into the computer. That makes this a poor choice for use in multi-GPU systems. In those cases, a video card with a blower-style fan and rear heat exhaust would be much better.

Finally, in regards to connectivity, this card has one HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4a plugs supporting a total of up to four displays at a maximum resolution of 7680x4320 (8K).

Please note that this is a "lite hash rate" variant. That simply means that it has artificial limits in place which reduce its effectiveness in mining some cryptocurrencies, but this does not affect performance in normal applications. NVIDIA is updating a lot of their video cards with this sort of limit in an effort to reduce their appeal to crypto miners and thus - hopefully - increase availability for consumers.
