Based on the Turing architecture, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC GAMING Graphics Card brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to your PC games. It also features enhanced technologies to improve the performance of VR applications, including Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering, and VRWorks Audio.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There are three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs, one HDMI 2.0b output, and one USB Type-C port with the VirtualLink standard. The RTX 2070 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 2304 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.
EVGA implemented iCX2 technology, which improves on the previous generation. It features a patented 9-sensor design controlled by micro control processors to determine fan speed for the GPU and VRAM/PWM areas. The plate-punched design improves the iCX2 baseplate's contact with all components and the heatsink. The material itself also improves the thermal conductivity by over 150%, compared to the original iCX baseplate. The iCX2 heatpipe uses L-shaped fins to direct airflow around the card. The heatspreader improves contact with the GPU to transfer more heat away from the GPU and the baseplate. A larger and more efficient heatpipe layout transfers more heat directly to the cooling fans. The upraised "E" on each fan creates a smoother slipstream for each fan. The iCX2 fans also go in a different direction. Forward-swept blades and a clockwise rotation helps propel these fans to improved cooling compared to the original iCX fans.
Real-Time Ray Tracing
Real-Time Ray Tracing The NVIDIA GeForce RTX platform enables real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions, and global illumination. The RTX 2070 features 6 GigaRays per second and up to 42T RTX-OPS*.
USB Type-C with VirtualLink
VirtualLink is an open industry standard that enables next-gen VR headsets to connect with PCs and other devices using a single, high-bandwidth USB Type-C connector. The Alternate Mode of USB Type-C simplifies and speeds up VR setup time, avoiding key obstacles to VR adoption. VirtualLink connects with VR headsets to simultaneously deliver four high-speed HBR3 DisplayPort lanes, which are scalable for future uses, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 data channel for supporting high-resolution cameras and sensors, and provides up to 27 watts of power.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 4.0
Boosts the card's clock speed in real-time based on the target temperature. If the card is running below the set target temperature, GPU Boost 4.0 will increase the clock speed to improve performance. The target temperature can be reset depending on your preference so you can have the card run more quietly for everyday tasks and older games, and run at full tilt during intense high-resolution gaming sequences.
With Ansel, gamers can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can capture screenshots at up to 32 times the screen resolution, and then zoom in where they choose without losing fidelity. With photo-filters, they can add effects in real-time before taking the shot. And they can capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing in a VR headset or Google Cardboard.
NVIDIA's parallel computing platform which enables an increase in computing performance by harnessing the parallel nature of GPU processing. CUDA-compatible applications can assign intensive parallel computing tasks, such as real-time video rendering, to the GPU to process, freeing up the computer's CPU to run other tasks.
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
