How well can the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB run games
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB will easily meet recommended system requirements of games released today. This is a strong benchmarker on modern games and can often return excellent frame rates at high and ultra 1080p. But the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB is at running the more popular games of 2022. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 979.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB can run Dying Light 2 at 1080p and predict it will return reasonable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 149 FPS, Medium: 118 FPS, High: 79 FPS and Ultra: 57 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Resident Evil 8 returns a good 61 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB at 1440p and researched how Dying Light 2 might perform on it leading us to predict a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 114 FPS, Medium: 90 FPS, High: 60 FPS and Ultra: 43 FPS. We then checked out Resident Evil 8 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 123FPS, M: 97FPS, H: 65FPS, U: 47FPS. And another popular game was Forza Horizon 5 that returned L: 123FPS, M: 97FPS, H: 65FPS, U: 47FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB, this is one of the better graphics cards for gaming at this screen resolution. We will see 1440p Ultra and High settings across almost all current games.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB.

GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the 12nm Turing Architecture and is considered a great 1440p video card. This is a dual-slot graphics card with a dual-fan thermal design using TORX 2.0 fans for improved airflow and optimised heat dissipation. This video card uses Zero Frozr to eliminate fan noise in low-load situations, and also has RGB Mystic Light lighting. This card has average overclocking potential. Architecture It equips a cut-down Turing GPU Codenamed TU106, more specifically the TU106-400A-A1 variant which means factory overclocks are permitted. This is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 2304 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing (RTX) technology. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes and 32 RT Cores for ray-tracing. GPU The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1710 MHz in Boost Mode, providing a decent 6% overclock when compared to the reference model. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 185W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with one available 8-pin and one 6-pin power connector. Performance The GeForce RTX 2070 offers performance in between the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, albeit also boasting ray-tracing and DLSS support. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OCV1 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
