Thanks to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, 4K gaming is now accessible to the masses. You no longer have to sacrifice performance for the higher resolution or break the bank just for the pleasure of playing in UHD. In fact, it’s reminiscent of how the GeForce GTX 970 changed the game back in 2014. All of a sudden, users had access to 1080p gaming with high frame rates and max settings without burning a hole in their wallet. You could play games like Batman: Arkham Knight and Witcher 3, both still considered GPU-intensive to this day, without your PC breaking a sweat.
Today, you see the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 doing the same for the next generation of gaming. There are some differences, though. The GTX 970 was a cheaper proposition when it was released, going for $329 (about £250, AU$460) compared to the RTX 3070’s retail price of $499 (£469, AU$809). But, both made the future of gaming attainable for the average gamer. With that said, the current chip shortage has made finding the RTX 3070 much harder for the time being as it’s almost impossible to find at market value outside of a pre-built PC.
Though the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 may not offer the same staggering performance as the GeForce RTX 3080 or the RTX 3090, it’s an impressive card in its own right, delivering 4K performance that almost rivals that of the RTX 2080 Ti without burning a $1,199 (£1,099, AU$1,899) shaped hole in your pocket. And, that combination of affordable price and high performance makes it the de facto graphics card for most people.
