Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition Review – Turing at $599

For the test platform, we went with the Intel 8700K on the Asus Maximus X Formula with Corsair Vengeance running at 3200MHz CL 15. We are running a Thermaltake Triple Radiator cooling solution on the CPU to make sure we don’t get any throttling on the CPU. The operating system is Windows 10 Pro X64 with updates disabled. We make three runs at each test then average those three runs and report the results here. If we hit a run that we consider being far away from the norm we dismiss that result and run a 4th test. The 8700K has been delidded and liquid metal applied to be sure we get as low of temps as possible to ensure we do not have any thermal throttling issues.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).
