Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 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 8GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

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

Game performance for the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 8GB where we look at the bigger games played in 2021. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. 980 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

A GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 8GB card at 1080p is predicted to see a reasonable frame rate when running Grand Theft Auto VI on Ultra - 55 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Forza Horizon 5 which is 85 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Back 4 Blood is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a strong 87 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Grand Theft Auto VI to predict how the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 8GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a playable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 110 FPS, Medium: 86 FPS, High: 58 FPS and Ultra: 42 FPS. Next we looked at Forza Horizon 5 which we predict will be good with a 64 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Back 4 Blood that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 66. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 8GB we get the impression that it is a strong choice at these screen resolutions. With Ultra graphics settings being regularly reached at 1440p gaming its easy to consider bumping up the screen size to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 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 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 8GB.

GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor 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, solid anti-bend backplate, and is certified VR-ready. This video card has poor overclocking potential. Architecture It equips a cut-down Turing GPU Codenamed TU106, more specifically the TU106-400-A1 variant which means factory overclocks are not 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 1620 MHz in Boost Mode, the same as 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 175W, 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 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
