Isn't it nice to see graphics card bargains again! A year ago, you might as well have called a graphics card a mining card. But now that cryptocurrency prices have collapsed, you can finally get a quality gaming card at a decent price. At $899, this Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Vision OC is nearly 20% off of its RRP. Who'd have thought that a couple of months back?!

The 3070 Ti is an excellent card for driving a high refresh rate 1440p monitor, even with demanding games at the highest settings. It's no slouch at 4K either but some of the more demanding titles will require you to dial back on the settings a little to maintain 60 FPS. Don't forget to turn on DLSS for a very good bump in frame rate with very little loss in quality, even with ray tracing enabled.

The 3070 Ti makes use of the GA104 GPU, which is also found in the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070. The 3070 Ti uses the full capabilities of the chip, with all cores unlocked.  The 6,144 cores of the 3070 Ti compares to the 5,888 of the 3070 and 4,864 of the 3060 Ti. The 3070 Ti’s biggest upgrade is the switch to faster GDDR6X memory compared to the GDDR6 of the 3070. The increase from 14Gbps memory to 19Gbps gives the 3070 Ti a very healthy bandwidth increase.

The Gigabyte Vision 3070 Ti is cooled by the very large Windforce 3X cooler. It's a long triple slot card, so it's not suitable for compact builds. The cooler won't have any problem keeping everything running nice and cool. The same cooler is used to cool much hotter 3080 and 3090 class cards, which means you can rest assured that it won't be stressed during your long gaming sessions.

The Gigabyte RTX 3070 Ti Vision OC features a distinct aesthetic and at just $899, its a steal compared to how 3070 Ti's were priced a few months back. It's a great 1440p gaming option. 

Other than the distinct and classy aesthetic of the 3070 Ti Vision, one of the things that may appeal to you is its display output configuration. It's got two DP 1.4a and two HDMI 2.1 ports. Most cards have three DP and one HDMI. This can be handy if you want to drive a HDMI monitor and a TV at the same time for example. 

Don't forget that Amazon is gearing up for its annual Prime Day bonanza on July 12 and 13. That would make it Prime Days I guess? Hey, two days is better than one! This Gigabyte RTX 3070 Ti Vision deal is sure to be one of many exciting gaming deals to come within the next two weeks. Keep an eye on our Amazon Prime day hub for the best gaming deals.

Chris' gaming experiences go back to the mid-nineties when he conned his parents into buying an 'educational PC' that was conveniently overpowered to play Doom and Tie Fighter. He developed a love of extreme overclocking that destroyed his savings despite the cheaper hardware on offer via his job at a PC store. To afford more LN2 he began moonlighting as a reviewer for VR-Zone before jumping the fence to work for MSI Australia. Since then, he's gone back to journalism, enthusiastically reviewing the latest and greatest components for PC & Tech Authority, PC Powerplay and currently Australian Personal Computer magazine and PC Gamer. Chris still puts far too many hours into Borderlands 3, always striving to become a more efficient killer.
