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 uses a multi-fan cooling layout. It is a great design for keeping a single card running cool and quiet, but results in some of the heat the card generates being pumped back into the computer. That makes this variant a poor choice for use in systems with more than one or maybe two GPUs. In those situations, video cards 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).
