Nvidia RTX 2070 Review Roundup: Here Is What Enthusiasts Say

The Nvidia RTX 2070 is out now and multiple publications have published their reviews. It is the minimum requirement for Nvidia RTX real-time ray tracing and if you are looking for a mid-range graphics card that supports RTX features then you should check out the Nvidia RTX 2070.

The following is what publications have to say about the Nvidia RTX 2070:

Anand Tech

AnandTech mentions that while the Nvidia RTX 2070 is the new kid on the black there are noo games that support Nvidia RTX features, so it might appear to be a tough sell right now. The following is what AnandTech had to say in this regard:

For current GTX 10 series owners, the RTX 2070 is largely a side-grade, offering known performance for possibly worse power efficiency. For those with low-end cards, or 900 series and older products, the $600 budget pulls in a number of other alternatives: the GTX 1080, RX Vega 64, or even the GTX 1070 Ti.

Extreme Tech

Extreme Tech feels the same way about the Nvidia RTX 2070 graphics cards. According to the publication, the graphics card is priced too high and that it competes with the GTX 1080 when it comes to pricing. The following is what the publication had to say in this regard:

Don’t buy the idea that Nvidia wouldn’t ship a GPU with technical ray tracing ability that couldn’t practically be used for ray tracing. It’s entirely possible that games will offer different levels of ray tracing to target different GPUs, but since we don’t know if that’ll happen yet or how good it will look if it does


IGN also has similar remarks regarding the Nvidia RTX 2070. As I said, this graphics card is a tough sell at this price point and publications recommend that people wait rather than buy into the hype. The following is what IGN had to say in this regard:

The RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition is currently as close to a “value” proposition as you’re going to find with a Turing-based card. If you’re using a 1440p monitor and looking for a future-proof GPU, this card is a semi-affordable option with great looks and great performance.

PC Gamer

PC Gamer also talks about the increase in price and mentions that it is possible that the higher price is due to the lack of competition in the GPU market. The following is what the publication had to say in this regard:

Unfortunately, lack of competition from AMD could make the RTX 2070 the least desirable step-down graphics card in Nvidia’s history, and with a base price of $499—$599 for the RTX 2070 Founders Edition we’re looking at in this review—the newest member of the Turing family definitely isn’t going after the $300-$400 price point we like for mainstream GPUs.
