Price

NVIDIA has announced a $600 price point for the RTX 3070 Ti, which is $100 higher than the RTX 3070 and hard to justify given what we’re seeing in terms of performance, power, heat, and noise. With current market conditions being what they are, such price points are of course completely irrelevant. In recent days, we’ve seen card prices come down a little bit, but they’re still super high. The RTX 3070 Ti is now sold at around $1100, and I feel like Zotac’s AMP Extreme Holo could end up $100 higher than that.

ZOTAC 3070 Ti AMP Holo vs Trinity review

Design

ZOTAC 3070 Ti AMP Holo is equipped the card with a semi-passive design; the three fans start to spin and cool once the GPU warms up. You’ll notice it has 2x 8 (6+2) pin power connectors, and along the PCie bus that’s good for 375W of energy intake. Weighing in at close to 1250g, this baby has been sized quite big, 32 x 12.5cm. 

The 3070 Ti Trinity OC has a new 11-blade fan design that increases airflow to a maximum. Dimensions of the card are 35.5 x 15 cm, and it weighs 1864 g. 

Ports

ZOTAC 3070 Ti AMP Holo

Display connectivity is standard here: 1 x HDMI 2.1 and 3 x DisplayPort 1.4 connectors.

ZOTAC 3070 Ti Trinity

Display connectivity options include three standard DisplayPort 1.4a and one HDMI 2.1. The DisplayPort 1.4a outputs support Display Stream Compression (DSC) 1.2a, which lets you connect 4K displays at 120 Hz and 8K displays at 60 Hz. Ampere can drive two 8K displays at 60 Hz with just one cable per display.

Frame rates

ZOTAC 3070 Ti AMP Holo

1080p gaming is definitely something NVIDIA’s new GeForce RTX 3070 Ti dominates in, with 60FPS+ easily on AAA games with maxed out graphics for the most part. You should also be able to crank ray tracing in games like Cyberpunk 2077 and nail 60FPS average thanks to DLSS technology.

The triple-fan cooler is fantastic and so too is the style, with ZOTAC always willing to try something different with its custom GeForce graphics cards. If you’re gaming at 1080p or 1440p then the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3070 Ti AMP Holo is a fine choice, with 4K 60FPS gaming actually no problem either.

ZOTAC 3070 Ti Trinity

The ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GAMING Trinity OC Graphics Card brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to your PC games. The GPU features 8GB of GDDR6X VRAM and a 256-bit memory interface, offering improved performance and power efficiency over the previous Turing-based generation.

Temperature

ZOTAC 3070 Ti AMP Holo

We encountered Zotac’s cooler design before, on the RTX 3090 AMP Extreme Holo; actually, it seems they’re using exactly the same cooler here, which of course provides awesome cooling potential for the RTX 3070 Ti. In our thermal testing, we saw excellent temperature results with the default “Performance” BIOS, only 71°C under full load, which is a huge improvement over the 82°C on NVIDIA’s Founders Edition.

ZOTAC 3070 Ti Trinity

The GPU core heats up to 77 °C under full load at the default 220 W TGP. Increasing the TGP to 240 W makes the core run hotter at 81 °C. Idling temperatures range between 48 °C and 53 °C during which time the fans are completely turned off.

Cooling

ZOTAC 3070 Ti AMP Holo

The Zotac 3070 Ti offers a triple slot fan design with better cooling and better power delivery over the founder’s edition. You can expect about a 10% difference in the power target and slightly better overclocking headroom from the increased cooling potential. IceStorm 2.0 offers enhanced airflow by utilizing an 11 blade fan design. There is also “Freeze Fan Stop” which automatically enables quieter cooling by stopping the fans when the GPU is idle.

ZOTAC 3070 Ti Trinity

The heatsink is chock full of blades to help dissipate heat more effectively. It also features stop-start technology like many GPUs on the list. There’s a nice and thick metal backplate that reinforces the card and prevents any damage during installation. It’s also been cut to allow airflow to get through the reinforcing plate

Power consumption

ZOTAC 3070 Ti AMP Holo

As for GPU temps my sample was topping out at around 1920-1940MHz GPU boost out of the box. GPU temps sat at around 70C, GPU hotspot at 80C, and GDDR6X memory temps of 82C (up from 76C on the Inno3D RTX 3070 Ti X3 OC dual-slot).

We are looking at GPU board power of around 295W and 315W when overclocked, so a high-quality 500W power supply will be more than enough for the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3070 Ti AMP Holo graphics card.

ZOTAC 3070 Ti Trinity

We observed an average total system power consumption of 375 W while running FurMark at the default 100% power target (PT). This is about 6% lower than an RTX 2080 Ti and on par with an RTX 2080 Super. Increasing the PT to 109% results in a 5% higher power consumption at 393 W.

How to install ZOTAC 3070 Ti AMP Holo or Trinity?

The installation of any graphics card is straightforward these days. Once the card is seated into the PC make sure you hook up the monitor and of course any external power connectors like 6/8-pin or the new 12-pin PEG power connectors. Preferably get yourself a power supply that has these PCIe PEG connectors natively. Purchase a quality power supply, calculate/estimate your peak power consumption for the entire PC, and double that number for the power supply as your PSU is most efficient at half the load value. So, if during gaming you consume 300W Watts on average for the entire PC, we’d recommend a 600 Watt power supply as a generic rule.

Once done, we boot into Windows, install the latest drivers and after a reboot, all should be working. No further configuration is required or needed unless you like to tweak the settings, for which you can open the NVIDIA control panel.

Radeon RX 6800 XT

Pros

+New RDNA2 architecture provides excellent performance+Beats 3080 in rasterization games+Easily handles 4K and 1440p+Lots of VRAM for the future

Cons

-Weaker ray tracing performance-FSR needs wider adoption-Supply might be even worse than Nvidia

Specs

GPU: Navi 21 XTGPU Cores: 4608Boost Clock: 2,250 MHzVideo RAM: 16GB GDDR6 16 GbpsTDP: 300 watts

Price and availability, as with all recent GPUs, remain terrible. The average going rate for an RX 6800 XT on eBay last month was nearly $1,400. That’s technically better than the RTX 3080, but still about double the AMD MSRP.

A big part of AMD’s performance comes thanks to the massive 128MB Infinity Cache. It improves the effective bandwidth by 119% (according to AMD). We’re confident that few if any games in the coming years are going to need more than 16GB, so the 6800 XT is in a great position in that area.

What’s not to like? Well, the ray tracing performance is a bit mediocre. Maybe it’s because current games are more likely to be optimized for Nvidia’s RTX GPUs, but overall the 6800 XT is just barely ahead of the RTX 3070 in ray tracing performance, and there are several games where it falls behind by up to 25%. And that’s without turning on DLSS, which even in Quality mode can improve performance of RTX cards by 20-40% (sometimes more). AMD is working on FidelityFX Super Resolution to compete with DLSS, but it’s not here yet and it’s very much needed.

AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 XT is the best card for Team Red. The RX Radeon 6900 XT is technically about 5-7 percent faster, but it costs 54 percent more. That’s not a great deal, at all, especially since you don’t get more VRAM or any other extras.

The RX 6800 XT provides a massive boost in performance and features relative to the previous generation RX 5700 XT. It adds ray tracing support (via DirectX Raytracing or VulkanRT), and is 70-90% faster across our test suite.

And AMD did all this without substantially increasing power requirements: The RX 6800 XT has a 300W TDP, slightly lower than the RTX 3080’s 320W TDP.

The GPU was affectionately dubbed ‘Big Navi’ prior to launch by the enthusiast community, and we got exactly what we wanted. Navi 21 is over twice the size of Navi 10, with twice the shader cores and twice the RAM. Clock speeds are also boosted into the 2.1-2.3 GHz range (depending on the card model), the highest clocks we’ve ever seen from a reference GPU by about 300 MHz.
