Part of MSI’s claim to fame for the SUPRIM family of cards is 20 years’ worth of engineering expertise in board design and cooling, so let’s see what high-end power delivery and overkill cooling can do in the overclocking world of the RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM X 8G.
Our first test is always just to max out the power target, in this case to 106%, and see what the card can do itself with a limit removed.
Our Time Spy graphics score only jumps ten points from a stock run of 14859 to 14869.
We see a reported peak power draw from the board of 331W, a number we confirmed with our Nvidia PCAT system, so we know MSI’s is reading/reporting accurately here. Temperatures look great with the GPU itself cruising in the low 70C range and hitting a peak of 77C. VRAM hit an 88C peak which isn’t terrible for GDDR6X, known for its extreme temps in operation. We see a peak core speed of 1950MHz with the card hovering in the low 1900MHz range most of the time.
Next up, we go after the Core clock, +100MHz crashed so we backed off to +75MHz.
This kicks our Graphics score of the 15k mark.
We also see our GPU Core clock peak at 2025mhz with it holding in the upper 1900MHz range most of the time.
Next up is memory. GDDR6X is known to overclock like crazy (If you can keep it from melting), so we’ll jump +500MHz in the first swing.
Our Graphics score jumps several hundred points to 15338.
Next up, +1000MHz memory.
Creeping up on a 15.5K graphics score now.
At +1250MHz memory speed, we start erroring out hard. Nvidia 30 series cards use ECC on their VRAM so the card usually won’t crash or artifact, you just get a massive performance penalty as seen here.
We ultimately settled in at +85MHz Core, +1075MHz memory.
This gets us our best score yet with graphics hitting15,574 and our overall Time Spy score just breaking the 15K Mark. Overall, this represents a ~5% boost in raw score which should yield a decent increase in most games.
