Test Setup and Overclocking

MSI RTX 2070 Armor Review

Test Setup

Following the success of sorting our graphs by the 4K results with the RTX 2080 reviews, we're sticking with that for the RTX 2070, so we can see how they compare to their bigger brothers. Obviously this card is designed for the lower resolutions than 4K, so remember to pay close attention to all the numbers, and not just glance at the highlighted position in our graph.

MSI RTX 2070 Armor
Intel i7 6850K
ASUS X99 Strix
Corsair ROG Dominator Platinum 3200
Corsair RM1000i
Corsair LX 512GB OS
Corsair LS 480GB x2 Raid0 Games
Corsair H100i V2
Windows 10


Overclocking

The nVidia GPU Boost 4.0 does a decent job of boosting the card when running it at stock. The OC Scanner does much better, pumping it all the way up by another 140 MHz average clock speed, but understandably the manual overclock is where the real benefits lie, with a peak boost beyond 2 GHz and an average nearly 200 Mhz better than the stock card.

Does anybody else wonder why Armor?

I'd have tossed out that brand name years ago as soon as anyone realised that there is the whole Armour/Armor thing going on. They could have called it Shield or something.

Whenever I type anything to do with these cards I always need to double check to make sure it is spelt incorrectly (The UK spelling is Armour).Quote

Asian companies, and Asian market in general don't have the same concept of what "cool" is, compared to western world. Nor does everything translates especially well to english. It is much more obvious with companies that are predominantly focusing Asian market. It is literally a different world. I can give you an example of e-sports team names like Royal Never Give Up, or Detonation Focus Me. Those names have no logic for western world, but it is quite popular to combine words like that in China or Japan. So stupid for us doesn't mean they see it that way.Quote

Well I for one am glad that MSI have listened to feedback from their customers and improved the cooling capabilities of their Armour cards as the Pascal coolers were pretty bad, whereas now those on a more limited budget can buy a card that will perform pretty well without getting too hot.
Thanks for the review!Quote
