MSI RTX 4070Ti Gaming X Trio Performance Review

The new MSI RTX 4070Ti Gaming X Graphics Card is a Game changer in Gaming Performance as it is one of the fastest 4070ti.

After releasing the RTX 4090 and 4080 Graphics cards in the market, Nvidia recently launched the 4070Ti GPU at CES 2023. It belongs to the latest generation 4000 series family. This is an enthusiast-level mid-range graphics card which cannot be called a mid-range as the price is relatively high in some countries. With the latest Ada Lovelace design, this card can easily handle all the latest AAA Gaming titles.

Although this RTX 4070Ti is nothing new, it is a relabeled version of the earlier launched RTX 4080 12GB version, which was slower and a cut-down version of the original RTX 4080. Since the older RTX 4080 12GB variant was not well received, Nvidia discontinued it and rereleased it as the RTX 4070Ti.

As Nvidia handed over the technology of this GPU to the aftermarket board manufacturers, MSI is the 1st company that has released its version of the Nvidia 4070Ti GPU known as the MSI RTX 4070Ti Gaming X. Although there are other versions of this RTX 4070Ti GPU available, like the Suprim X Version and the Ventus OC Version.

As soon as we received the MSI RTX 4070Ti, we quickly unboxed it, checked and tried running some games on it, so without further delay, let’s review the performance of the all-new MSI RTX 4070Ti Gaming X GPU.

MSI New Gaming X Series GPU- Final Thoughts

From the above chart list, we can see that in every latest-gen game, the MSI RTX 4070Ti Gaming X Series GPU has delivered more than 150fps in almost every game in 1080p. When the resolution was set to 1440p, it produced more than 100+ fps in nearly all the games. But when the resolution was selected to 2160p or 4K, most games averaged around 70-80 FPS, while some games didn’t cross 60FPS when running at high-resolution displays.

Not all games are designed to run equally better, no matter which graphics card you use. The main factor lies around the optimization of the games. For example, Cyberpunk 2077 scored the lowest 44 FPS on 4K, which is playable but not at the solid 60 FPS. We tested Cyberpunk with the post-performance patch released a few days back.

The temperatures on this card are excellent, with the GPU not hitting more than 60 degrees in any of the games we tested. This speaks volumes about the Graphics card and its cooling capabilities, and we are delighted with how the MSI RTX 4070Ti is shaped.

All the games ran smoothly, and the MSI 4070ti GPU didn’t create any issues. And playing games for a couple of hours, we can say that you can surely recommend getting the MSI RTX 4070Ti if you are on the verge of upgrading your graphics card.

So this was all about the MSI Gaming X RTX 4070Ti Performance Review. If you think we missed anything, let us know in the comments below.
