This video card was launched with a price tag of $ 499 and contrary to what can be assumed from its name, it comes to replace the GTX 1080 as a purchase option for consumers who want a fresh and fast card especially for games and other applications. The best and best GTX 1070 remains at a price tag of 350 USD today, far from the risk zone for its existence.
At the time of writing, the GeForce RTX 2070 is the smallest brother of the RTX family NVIDIA, And was announced only this summer.
In this review we will look at a very specific version of theRTX 2070 and is manufactured by Palit. To-Palit The number of series currently in the world of video cards and its main branding from the most advanced to the simplest is presented below:
- JetStream \ Super JetStream
The Super JetStream version of the review is simply a slightly slower version than the usual one, so the printed board and the cooling system are exactly the same. At the engineering and cooling level, this version is considered to be the most exotic,RTX 2070.
This video card is based on the TU106 core NVIDIA. Among the technical features of the card:
- Manufacturing process: 12 Nanometer Factory TSMC
- Number of Transistors: 10.8 billion
- Core area: 445 square mm
- Number of Unified CUDA Processors: 2,304
- Number of tensor cores: 288
- Graphic memory: 8GB type GDDR6 On top of the 256Bit controller
- Brown Shell: 185W
The Super JetStream video card is large, very large. The length of the card is 29.2 centimeters. This video card uses two fairly serious fans with a diameter of 92 millimeters. the design? Fantastic and fairly neutral with very generous use of aluminum engraved.
On the back of the card is a fairly thick posterior poster and JetStream logo. The graphics core area is exposed at the back of the card and I do not see it as a disadvantage.
In addition to its unconventional height and length, this video card is also quite thick and will take up slots in its packaging. In this version, a tremendous emphasis is placed on Cooling And overclocking, and you see it well. The side of the card is also pleasant looking and has a neutral and beloved theme of silver and black mainly with a logo.
The Super JetStream requires 8PIN and 6PIN power connections to operate. Although technically no need for the additional 6PIN, the consideration may be primarily from cost savings and cost-accounting Overclocking extreme. "Cost savings? What are you talking about?" I'll explain later.
This little switch at the top of the card is the ticket for any video card that wants to call itself exotic. Super JetStream has a dual BIOS switch and contains two bios chips for the graphics core and two different profiles with which to play, burn and change values. By default, the only difference between the two different BIOS buffers is that one comes with a minimum fan profile of 20% and the other includes the fan shutting feature completely at rest, which has become standard in recent years.
A closer look at the printed circuit board
This is how the PCB or printed circuit board of the RTX 2070 Super JetStream appears. The TU106 graphics core is the largest that has been created in recent years for the target market segment and is 445 square millimeter. For comparison, the GTX1080 core area is only 314 millimeters square. The magnification is mainly due to the controllers and additional processors in the Turing architecture of NVIDIA Such as the RayTracing processors and the Tensor core for Deep Learning.
8 chipset זיכרון Which are connected to the memory controllers in the heart and each has a volume of 1GB.
The power supply to the graphics core is among the most advanced I have ever seen for a card set under 200W (perhaps 170A), perhaps ever. This system is based on 10 Stabilization phases and an impressive total volume of 600A. It's a great overkill, and it turns out that this printed circuit board also serves Palit's creation graphic cards sample RTX 2080 advanced and expensive significantly.
Palit could build this graphics card with 7 or 8 steps but chose 10 simply so that the RTX 2070 would get everything that RTX 2080 gets when it comes to PCB components, and probably Cooling. Remember that I mentioned that installing an additional electrical connection probably constitutes a small saving in costs? This is the main reason. A production line in which most of the components are manufactured for two graphic cards Different is a production line that saves time and logistics. We have only to be ill in such a situation.
This is the cooling system that is concerned with cooling the core, the voltage stabilizers and the memory chips on the card. In the picture is the back plate of the graphics card along with thermal pads that come into contact with the back of the memory chips and the voltage stabilizers.
The graphics core comes in contact with a large copper surface from which 5 copper tubes are quite thick with a diameter of 8 millimeters. 4 of those five go a long way and wear many aluminum fans.
Like the printed board, the RTX 2070 Super JetStream cooling system is also very advanced, given the conservative heat casing-something. Here, too, Palit uses the same cooling system exactly on its particular RTX 2080 models - Do you seem familiar?. This video card earns from the system Cooling Over-Hudhanset. I like over-engineered.
On the back of the video card after removing the braces, you can find the two bios chips you can replace (prominent left), as well as real-time voltage readings with a multimeter (bottom of the image). This is an interesting feature that for some reason Palit I do not like to mention the journalistic material. I think you should praise a friendly design for overclocking.
It's time to transfer the video card in our testing system and see how it functions in different games, and how good its cooling system is.
[nextpage title = "Performance Tests & Summary"]
Our video test system:
- Processor: Intel core i7 8700K without MCE, maximum frequency of 4,300Mhz
- CPU Cooling: Noctua NH-D15S
- Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z370 Ultra Gaming
- Memory: ADATA XPG D80 3,600Mhz 2X8GB DDR4
- Power Supply: Corsair HX 1,050W
- storage: ADATA SP610 SSD 512GB
Performance tests were conducted at 1920X1080 and 2560X1440 resolutions that are the target audience for such a video card. The settings in the various games are the highest possible without a unique visual feature for cards NVIDIA או AMD. The main reason for this is to not create a bottleneck with the system processor and maximize the maximum potential from the graphics card.
In the game GTA We noticed the location of the V-RTX 2070 slightly above the GTX 1080 from the same series of the previous generation. The performance difference under 2560X1440 is 12% on average and it is very respectable. The performance distance in this title versus theRTX 2080 and GTX 1080 Ti are not expected to be felt under 1920X1080 and are only 16% in 2560X1440.
Some ספורט Mail with Overwatch. In Blizzard's popular game, many efforts were made to make it work at a frame rate per second, even under maximum settings. Here, too, there is a clear ranking that places the RTX 2070 in Sandwich between GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti.
In the highly acclaimed Witcher 3 game, I see a similar story of graphics card rankings with RTX 2070 transmission over the GTX 1080 and getting closer to the GTX 1080 TiX performance area. These Performence Quite respectable and upgrade speed for a sum similar to that of the new GTX 1080 until recently.
3DMark's Time Spy test is a re-animation of DirectX12 elements. This particularly heavy test puts even the toughest video cards in the test even under a modest resolution of 1920X1080. This test is known for its unbridled use of the core graphics resources for geometry and lighting calculations. Here too there is not much new with RTX 2070, which lies peacefully close to the GTX 1080 Ti core crusher, the flagship of the previous generation.
Noise, power consumption and temperature
As an advanced card forRTX 2070 Super JetStream There is a system that, when the core temperature is less than 60 ° C, the cooling fans do not turn at all.
With an ambient temperature of 20 ° C we performed a stress test for the graphics card and took a sample after a continuous hour. Not surprisingly, this video card remains cool under maximum effort in this condition with temperature Core Of 62 ° C only.
When the fans start rotating at 60 ° C to the core, they are at a speed of 35%. In this case, we have succeeded in stopping the rise in core temperatures.
In the next video you will be able to hear some of the softness of this video card with a high sensitivity microphone:
The new card Palit Is one of the quietest gaming cards we've ever had in recent years. Again thanks, among other things, to the monstrous cooling.
Power consumptionRTX 2070 is slightly higher than that of GTX 1080 and that makes sense given the addition of 10W's declared heat envelope. The entire computer system effortlessly consumes approximately 320W.
We recommend supplying power to a system similar to the 550W system from a recognized company. If applicable The fast Or if a multicore processor is used, it is recommended to climb to 600W models or more. Today, the cost of quality power supplies is lower than ever and dwarfed compared to expenses on system components such as a video card or processor.
The new Palit video card sample RTX 2070 Super Jetstream has left a very good impression on us. This is one of the most polished and advanced products we have seen for a video card with such market share data.
The last year's JetStream was very good, the new even better with a number of engineering enhancements that make it at least for us a new standard of excellence in the design of a video card.
First there is the printed circuit board that we know is simply good because Palit uses it even for its RTX 2080. On the same board sits one of the cooling cooling devices that can be given to a graphics core of this kind. In addition to this there are two fairly large fans and a clean theme with bulbs RGB tasteful.
The icing on the cake is an auxiliary tool for overclocking, such as a double-buffering switch and component voltage reading points using a multimeter. Even if this is a feature that most absolute users are not going to use, those who are looking for such features can turn toPalit In order to obtain a suitable product.
All this makes it possible to produce the best of the TU106 core. Its operating frequency during all the tests was 1920-1950Mhz, which is one of the high frequencies you will find today for the RTX 2070 card from the box. The fast It also allows you to reach frequencies like 2050Mhz and more depending on the quality of your silicon. The Super Jetstream is of course the most popular type.
As far as price is concerned, this SuperClocking (Super) version and in the regular version is sold for about NIS 2850. We believe that, as in the previous JetStream models, the price will adjust a bit toward NISNUMX and will be a major contender for the users' pocket. It is certainly significantly better than other basic samples in the market.
The only serious drawback we found on this graphics card is its dimensions. This video card is not exactly optimal for small, compact packages, but the new JetStream should not apologize for anything. It did not come to be compact.
