Colorful iGAME RTX 3070 Ti Advanced OC-V Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅16-07-21

It won’t come as any surprise that the RTX 3070 Ti slots in between the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080, Afterall it’s designed to fill such a gap. But is the introduction of the Ti really necessary?

Under the shroud the Ti carries the same GPU and 8GB VRAM capacity as the RTX 3070, but there are some subtle differences where it matters. Clock speeds on the Ti are bumped up, we get GDDR6X which has greater bandwidth and there are more cuda/tensor cores. All of these improvements allow the Ti to improve on the vanilla 3070 and step ever so closely to the performance of the RTX 3080.

Colorful has done an exceptional job on the design of their Advanced OC-V, it most certainly stands out from the crowd with a distinctive shroud which we love. It carves out its own identity with the lovely silver tone and eye-catching RGB lighting. If you have the ability to rotate this graphics card within your case – the top-side will be a delight to have showcased.

A factory overclock has been applied to this variant of the RTX 3070 Ti, taking the Core Clock Boost from 1770MHz to 1830MHz, which isn’t too shabby at all. Accessing this overclock is simple as there is a switch on the video out panel of the GPU. This overclock assists in providing better performance in-game but this will obviously affect the thermals, but, thankfully Colorful has implemented a decent triple-fan cooling solution which not only tackles the temperatures very well, but it does so without needing exceptionally high RPM from those fans – resulting is a low-noise solution.

Obtaining this graphics card will be one of the challenges you’ll have to encounter – and we aren’t necessarily speaking about the global GPU stock shortage. Colorful aren’t as widely availability as other GPU partners, so you may not be able to obtain the Advanced OC-V in your region. The brand is however getting a stronger name for themselves and we’re hopeful they’ll be entering other countries in the not too distance future.

Colorful’s iGame RTX 3070 Ti Advanced OC-V has all the makings for a superb graphics card. We love the design choices and the performance on offer.

+ RGB lighting like no other
