Duel: RTX 3070 VS RX 6700 XT

Duel: RTX 3070 VS RX 6700 XT

If we had lived in a normal period, these two cards should have animated the market because it targets what we could call “the fat” of the gaming market.

The xx70 references have always been well cared for at Nvidia and AMD was counting on playing its card well with a 6700XT which was supposed to be inserted, normally, between the price of the RTX 3060 and 3060Ti. The situation we have been experiencing for more than a year now has completely overturned this logic.

RTX 3070 VS RX 6700XT

If you are lucky enough to get your hands on a card at a decent price, here is a factual analysis of the performance of these two references in 1080 and 1440P.

Techspot was able to conduct a battery of tests using a Ryzen 9 5950X mounted machine as a platform and accompanied by 32GB of DDR4-3200 CL14 (2×16). Both cards come from the Gigabyte Gaming OC family and are used in their “stock” version (without overclocking). On the other hand, the Smart Access Memory is not activated.

Conclusion : RTX 3070 advantage but…

In the end the RTX 3070 comes out easily but with some contrasts. The card has more advantages like Nvenc encoding or DLSS. But the RX 6700XT with its 12Gb is not a choice to be definitively discarded especially since it should not logically face this 3070 but the lower references of Nvidia. But that was if we were in a normal period…
