Leaked benchmarks show RTX 3070 Ti is 10% faster than RTX 3070

Synthetic and gaming benchmarks of the RTX 3070 Ti leaked one day ahead of the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) ending. Videos of the performance tests showed up on the video side of Chinese website Bilibili. The benchmarks originated from TecLab, with the leaker in question obscuring their face with a mask. Performance-wise, it seems the RTX 3070 Ti will only offer an uplift of around 10%, compared to the original RTX 3070.

The RTX 3070 Ti was announced last week, sided by the RTX 3080 Ti, which launched June 3rd. The new graphics card is to launch on the 10th of June. The embedded GPU is only slightly improved, whereas the majority of the improvement comes from the adoption of GDDR6X memory modules, as opposed to regular GDDR6. The RTX 3070 Ti proves faster in memory speeds, but features the same volume of 8 GB.

As expected, this won’t improve gaming performance all that much. The card might run games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider or Borderlands 3 relatively stable on 4K — with average framerates of 72 and 51 fps respectively — but is still better off at 1440p. At 2K resolutions, the same games averaged framerates of 131 and 90. That’s roughly 10 frames more than the original RTX 3070 pulls.

The RTX 3070 Ti tested, appeared to be a Gigabyte Gaming OC model. The leaker even removed the cooler to show the PCB, clearly showing the updated GA104-400-A1 chipset. During synthetic tests with Furmark, the GPU pulls power of up to 325 Watt, with peak temperatures rising to 60 degrees Celsius.

Leaks aside, the NDA on benchmarks and review coverage actually lifts tomorrow. If these results have you yearning for more information on the RTX 3070 refresh, tomorrow is going to be a big day…
