MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z 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 Gaming Z
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


With a much beefier factory overclock and more serious cooling it isn't any surprise at all that the Gaming Z out-overclocks the Armor. The OC Scanner also makes a much bigger improvement than we saw on the Armor. Simply put, better cooling means higher potential. Hopefully our benchmark results bear this out. So let's get down to business.

Thanks for the review!
These cards are nice, and for those who want raytracing but can't stretch to a 2080/ti but want performance seems like these are the way to go.Quote
